There's a jackal over there.
Ahmed raises his head but cannot see it. Yussef points at
it, but Ahmed still cannot locate it. Yussef despairs.
Ahmed finally spots it. He loads the rifle, but when he is
about to aim, the rifle fires. The shot hits amidst the
goats, lifting up a small cloud of dust.
What are you doing, you idiot?
The jackal flees, terrified, while the goats scamper in
11 EXT. DESERT -- LATER
Both brothers are sitting under a tree, eating bread and
drinking water from a goatskin canteen.
Zora doesn't mind.
Ahmed keeps eating without turning to look at his brother.
She doesn't, but I do.
This is between her and me.
You're both pigs. Next time I'm
going to tell my dad.
Stay out of this.
If you want me to stay out of it,
don't do it.
Yussef gets annoyed, stand up and leaves.
12 EXT. DESERT -- DAY
The brothers are sitting apart from each other. Ahmed guards
the goats with the rifle on his lap.
After a while, Yussef goes to sit behind a large rock. He
makes sure his brother isn't watching and he pulls his pants
down to start masturbating.
When he is at his most concentrated, a shot rings out and
startles him. He quickly pulls his pants up and another
shot rings out. Yussef gets up to see what his brother is
Ahmed is aiming the rifle at a rock some two hundred yards
away. He fires a third time.
