[soft rumbling]

[sparks zapping]

[electronic humming]

[zapping and humming

growing louder]

[rhythmic music pounding]

[door slams]

[music continues]

[electronic roar over music]

[static over music]

[music growing louder]

[music stops]

[distorted echoes,


[rhythmic footsteps echoing]

[girl] When I remember it...

I remember thinking...

[rhythmic pounding]

...the entire population

of Greensburg, Pennsylvania,

is 14,892.

[pounding growing louder]

If you divide that by

the number of days in the year,

there should be 41 people with

the same birthday every day.

[rhythmic pounding continues]

In my lifetime, the population

has decreased by 12.6%.

Soon, another 12.6%

will be gone.

And another.

And another.

Then another.

Until all that's

left here is me.

Me without you.

[rhythmic pounding continues]

[lighter clicks]

Me and the one thing

I was waiting to find out about.

[patient coughing]


They were also waiting.

In the middle of nowhere.

In this doctor's office.

At 7:
30 in the morning.

Twenty days ago,

I turned 20.

[rhythmic pounding continues]

Now we were all waiting to see

how many more birthdays

we'd have.

If there'd be one or 100.

If there'd be anyone new

to share them with.

[flame roars,

cigarette sizzles]

I've spent every birthday

in Greensburg.

Every day.

Every minute.

Every second.

[pounding stops]

[patient coughing]

[door closes]

- [phone ringing]

- [coughing continues]

[coughing growing louder,


- [ringing continues]

- [distorted PA announcement]

[girl] When I remember it,

I remember believing

everything begins

with one exact moment.

[keying on cell phone]

[keying stops]

[indistinct whispering]

[Lissa whispering] Daniel.



[roaring sound]

[indistinct whispering,

distorted choral music]

Did you hear

what I just said?

You don't care.

You don't know anything.

Everything's fucked up.

What's the point

of even talking to you?

[Lissa] How can you say that?

After, after last year, after how

my mom's been acting, after my dad?

- I don't...

- Don't. Just don't.

Don't say I don't want

to end up like him?

Neither do you.

Here's the truest thing

I've ever said:
f*ck you.


And what about your mom,

have you talked to her?

Not since graduation.

Look, I didn't mean you don't

care, I didn't mean it that way.

- It's pretty clear how you meant it.

- Was it?

I'm hungry.

What? What are you

talking about?

That's an example

of being clear, "I'm hungry,"

which is what I am, hungry.

Come on, that doesn't

make any sense.

And bored.

Hungry and bored.

What do you wanna do, then?

I don't know.

Go to the porn store.

I'm legal now.

That one where the girls

wear nothing but a smile?

No, that's a strip club.

I was talking more about the ones

that flank the Barnes & Noble.

All that I was trying

to say is that...

it's got nothing to do

with your family.

I just meant that

you'll be out of here soon.

You're going to college.

- [Daniel] It's only a state school.

- [Lissa] So what?

[Daniel] Not far away.

Still better than

being stuck here.

Did you know Mount Pleasant

used to be called Hell Town?

[laughs] That's not true.

- It is.

- Why?

[Daniel] Something to do with,

this was in the '20s or something.

Coal miners lived

in Mount Pleasant,

whereas the rich bosses

lived in Scottdale, on the hill.

They should just go back

and rename the whole

goddamn area Hell Town.

[rap music pounding

on car speakers]

Sorry about earlier.

I was being a sharktopus.

- [Lissa] I was gonna say a sea hag.
