Erasing Eden

Synopsis: When Eden caves into social and familial pressures to marry Chris, she had no idea she was suppressing negative feelings about marriage until the night before her wedding. The last thing Eden remembers is ripping into one of her wedding presents and downing an entire bottle of scotch. Waking up in the desert beaten nearly to death, Eden has no idea how she got there, but is determined to get herself to the wedding on time. With a broken jaw, she is now a mute ward of the lonely underworld of Los Angeles. Pridefully taking this journey alone, she finds kindness in the most unlikely places.

- Hello, would

you like to leave a message?

- Eden's daily message.



Scratch that.

Eden's daily message.

All right, so, I am

getting married tomorrow.

I'm staying with my

future mother in law.

I just want to remind myself

that I self sabotage

and that I deserve to be happy.

It's okay.

It's okay to have

good sh*t happen.

It's okay to be happy, you know.

- No.

- Eden, stand up.

Girl, what are you doing?

- Getting married tomorrow.

- Pull your skirt

down, your ass is showing.

- Do it.

- How much did you drink?

You in a total black out.

Don't get in that car.



- F***.

- Hey baby, I know I'm not

supposed to talk to you

on the day of the wedding,

but just gimme a call back.

I just wanna see when

you're gonna get here.

- Hello, would

you like to leave a message?

- Hey Eden, it's me again.

Remember when I

told you to fake it?

I lied.

This isn't you,

and you're a fraud.

So quit lying to yourself,

and do what you want.

- No, please, stop, no.


- Thank you.

- Thanks a lot.

- Hello.

I think you're

just imaging stuff.

She's probably just really

busy with this wedding.

I wouldn't worry about it, man.

- You really haven't

talked to her?

- Mm-mmm.

- She knew you'd be worried,

and she told me to tell you

that she's focusing on

getting ready today.

- You're the bridesmaid, so

I thought she'd be with you.

Is there anyone else

you can think of

that she may have

gotten in contact with?

- Not really.

She told me she wanted to

go to her own hairdresser,

to focus on myself

today, and not to worry.

- Hello, would

you like to leave a message?

- Hey, Eden, this is

a daily message to yourself.

You're getting married tomorrow,

and you are gonna

stand at the alter

and make a promise

that you don't know

if you can keep.

- Are you all right?

Are you okay?

I'm sorry.

I'm gonna make a

call, don't worry.


We got another one of those

meth heads in here again.

This one looks

beat up pretty bad.

I don't wanna bother

you all the time.


But I think you

should come out here.

All right, let's

just go outside.

Go, all right, outside.

I'll come help you

in a minute, okay.

Please, just have a seat.

- My husband lost his job.

- Expecting a lot of people.

Do you want something to drink?

Just sit outside

for a second, okay.

- You been drinkin'?


You been drinkin'.

What do you call me for this?

You should've called

pd or an ambulance.

Oh she has a

freakin' head wound.

Oh that's great, you

didn't tell me that.

Technically she's

outside my jurisdiction.

Okay, but since your friend

here has a freakin' head wound,

now I am obligated.

Well, I'm not touchin' her, so,

you gotta put her in the car.

I'm tellin' ya she stinks,

put her in the car.

I am not touchin' her.

Take her and put her in the car.

Come on, boy.

How are you doin' today?

I'm sergeant berg.

- You wanna do it yourself?

You wanna get there by yourself?

- You have really cute hands.

Where do you have

your nails done?

Thank you so much.


- Copy, sheriff, go ahead.

- Martha, can you tell Pete

to go wait in my office?

I'm gonna be back

around noon, okay.

I got something I gotta do.

- All right, will do.

- I appreciate it.

Thank you.

Why don't you just relax

and sit back there, all right?


God, oh sh*t.

Oh god.

Okay, come on now.

Move your leg in the car now.

That's right.

Okay, all right.

Jesus Christ.

- She still hasn't called.

- You know, everything's okay.

- Do you think

she's with someone?

- Like it's your birthday party
