Zerophilia script
Zerophilia (2005)
Synopsis: While on a camping trip, an inexperienced young man (Taylor Handley) has an encounter with a British woman, who turns him into a zerophiliac, a person who can change sexes while aroused. Further complications arise when Luke, who also becomes Luca (Marieh Delfino), loses interest in his girlfriend, Michelle (Rebecca Mozo), and instead prefers her brother, Max (Kyle Schmid).

FADE IN:

EXT. WILDERNESS - NIGHT

Mist. Dark trees. Dripping vines. An ENGINE RUMBLES in the

distance.

The full moon shimmers on a puddle. A FROG SPLATS IN,

splashing a one man pup tent.

INSIDE THE TENT:

LUKE's eyes pop open, disoriented, realizing he's fallen

asleep reading by flashlight. He's nineteen, still slightly

awkward and unaware he's growing handsome.

He listens as the ENGINE RUMBLES LOUDER, closer.

He peers out through the tent flap. Glaring head lamps ROAR

toward him. Scrambling out of his sleeping bag, he HURLS

himself against the side of the tent, as...

OUTSIDE:

an RV CAMPER nearly plows down the tent, skidding to a stop

in the mud.

Stillness.

Luke extricates himself from the tent. He runs to the driver-

side window of the RV.

LUKE:

Are you all right?

Inside, ALEXA, thirties, earthy, looks up at him bleary-eyed.

She nods 'yes.'

LUKE (CONT'D)

How did you even get here? There's

no road.

ALEXA:

I'm sorry. I'm from Utah.

LUKE:

It's okay.

ALEXA:

Are you alone out here?

2.

He nods 'yes.' She bursts into TEARS.

ALEXA (CONT'D)

My husband. Bastard. I've been

driving for days. I don't even

know where I'm going.

LUKE:

Oh, wow. I'm really sorry.

She gathers herself, sniffling.

I have warm apple kringel in the

camper. Would you like some?

LUKE:

Uh, what is it?

ALEXA:

Pastry.

INSIDE RV CAMPER

Luke stands at the RV's tiny kitchen counter, wolfing pastry

off a paper plate.

ALEXA:

So, this "Survival Quest" is your

vacation?

LUKE:

Yeah. It's my third try. Kind a'

lame, huh?

ALEXA:

No. Seven days alone in the

wilderness? I'd be afraid.

LUKE:

It's just something I really wanted

to do.

Luke notices an odd pile of stuff by the sink.

ALEXA:

His shoes. Fishing lures. The

electric drill.

LUKE:

Good.

3.

She smiles, grateful, eyeing his torn t-shirt and shorts.

ALEXA:

You’re all wet and muddy. Why

don’t I hang those up to dry?

LUKE:

Thanks. I’m okay.

ALEXA:

I’m propositioning you.

LUKE:

Oh...

Oh, wow.

You are?

He considers, fearful, but thrilled.

EXT. LANGFORD UNIVERSITY - MORNING

Students crisscross on bikes in front of the quadrangle.

The huge round headlights and muscular front grill of an old

SEMI-TRUCK RUMBLES up to the curb. It's the cab only, like

the sliced-off front of a train engine.

Luke hops down, startling his friends, KEENAN and JANINE,

passionately making out on the sidewalk.

Twenty, brainy and athletic, Janine adjusts her glasses, the

only remnant of a bookish past, as she thoughtfully considers

Luke's massive truck.

JANINE:

It's remarkable. Sort of retro. I

thought you were gettin' a pickup?

LUKE:

I changed my mind.

Hoping for a more enthusiastic response, he turns to Keenan,

who climbs up and peeks inside the cab. He's rugged,

streetwise, perpetually bemused, -maybe Ed Norton and Bill

Murray had a son...

KEENAN:

It's awesome. It's pleather.

LUKE:

Fuck you. You think it's stupid.

4.

Janine stares at him.

LUKE (CONT'D)

What?

She shrugs, trying to put her finger on it, and when Luke

rolls up his T-shirt sleeves, she grins.

LUKE (CONT'D)

What?!

JANINE:

Oh my God. You got laid.

Finally! Who is she?

Luke glares at Keenan.

KEENAN:

I didn't say a word! I swear! You

know Janine. She's got X-ray

vision.

(to Janine)

Camping! A total stranger.

JANINE:

I knew that whole "waitin' to meet

the right girl" thing was crap.

Congratulations! I have to get to

Physics. The truck's great.
