FADE IN EXT. LIBERTY ISLAND, NY - NIGHT Black with traces of white. SOUNDS of faint moans--ecstasy--in the distance grow. White fuzz solidifies--snowflakes. Heavy breathing. Snow drives down hard from the night sky onto the observation deck of-- EXT. LADY LIBERTY'S TORCH - NIGHT MAN's hand grasps the hair of a WOMAN. Pulls it back and licks her neck. Giggles of sexual delight. The woman--obscured by the driven snow and black of night--pushes the man up against the railing. Tears at his clothes. Digs her nails into his chest. Howls with drunken hysteria. His hands race over her body--probing every inch. She moans wildly. Lifts him up onto the railing. Railing is iced--slippery. Gust of wind--he loses balances. Slips over the edge. Struggling. Holds on for dear life. MAN My hand--my hand! Take my hand, damn it! Woman grabs his hand. He can't pull himself back. He slips.... Falling.... Falling.... Body crashes to Earth landing at Lady Liberty's base. The broken chains lie at her feet--as does his broken spine. Above. Wind whips the snow across the woman's face. She looks down--150 feet. MAN (v.o.) My hand--my hand! Take my hand, damn it! Looks at the man's severed HAND. Discards it over the edge. Wipes her blade clean.Copyright 1998 -- Terrence J. Brady
