Queen of Earth

Synopsis: Two women go away together. One meets a man that distracts her from being there for her friend. The betrayed friend says, "One day you will need me, and then I won't be there for you." When they next go away together the roles are reversed, the threat becomes reality. But the two situations are not exactly the same - the man in the first scenario was benign, the man in the second scenario is toxic. That and other differences displace the parallel between the two events.

Please don't say that.

Because I won't stand to be treated

by you that way, anymore. That's why.

I don't care about that!

And that is insulting to the both of us.

I have to go. She's watching me.

Don't ask.

Was that James?

Does "don't ask" mean something different

where you're from?

- We're from the same place.

- I'd really rather not.

I wasn't sure if you were still in here.

Where else would I be?

You want to go for a walk or something?

It's nice out.

My face hurts.

How do you mean?

Can you please not make me talk

right now? I'm sorry.

What are you doing in here?

What do you mean?

What are you doing?

Like... actually?

It's all dark in here.

I'm hiding.

From what?

It drives me crazy that places like this

are so close to the city.

- Places like this?

- Yeah, you know...

Where tranquillity isn't just a myth.

You can come here

any time my family isn't using it.

Any time, Ginny? Labor Day?

Memorial Day? Fourth of July?

- I told you not to call me Ginny.

- He's joking.

Well, some jokes make me

feel uncomfortable.

- This is my fault.

- No. Not really.

Can we not do this, please?

I thought we came here to relax.

Or at least I did. I don't know...

about what you two are doing.

Well, relaxing or having a vacation would

imply that, at some point, it might end.

So, you can't really get away from it all,

if that's all you're doing, you know.

Then you're just... a bum.

Are you a bum, Ginny?

What a stupid, shitty thing to say.

I don't care at all about going back.

And in fact, now that I think about it,

I'd... just as soon not.

Right. B-U-M, bum.

Just mind your own business, Your Majesty.

OK, um...

- Where are you going?

- I'm just gonna, uh...

give you two a little space.

Not necessary. We're fine.

Still gonna just... excuse myself.
