The Dream Children

Synopsis: Troubled TV personality Steven Evans struggles to find meaning in his life in the face of the superficial world he has created. Smothered by celebrity and materialism, Steven's only respite is through solitary visits to the ocean and shallow sexual encounters with the acquaintances that orbit his life. When his long-term partner hurls him headfirst into fatherhood, Steven's initial reluctance is gradually replaced with love, as he discovers, in his new family, a bond stronger than any he has experienced before. But the return of an unexpected visitor triggers off a series of events that thrusts Steven and his family into a cycle of loneliness, self-destruction and grief.

[music playing]

Hey, [inaudible] get going soon.

And then Ken and I

ran around the corner

straight into the two

cops who just dropped...

Oh, you didn't!

Mm-hm.

And then we were, butt-naked,

being arrested by the same two

cops twice in the one night.

Twice!

[laughter]

Sorry. guys-

Can I start to

clear those for you?

Go ahead.

So Ken's telling them

the reason we're naked

and roaming the streets

is because someone broke

into our house, stole

all our clothes,

and we're chasing after him.

And the cop says,

what did he look like?

Who?

[laughs]

Come on, keep up.

The one who stole our clothes.

[laughter]

So Ken says, f*ck, mate.

I didn't see him.

I was too busy

banging your sister.

[groans]

[laughter]

But I was woken up

at 4:
00 in the morning

by the police asking if I

want to bail my husband out,

and can I bring some undies?

[laughter]

It was the best damn

funeral I've ever been to.

Oh!

If I got a call from the police

telling me Steve was naked...

You'd be running down there!

Yeah.

No, no. no, no.

No, I'd leave him there.

You would not.

I would!

I have a feeling that Steve

would be A-OK with that one,

eh?

[laughter]

I'd pay for it.

Quit being such a classy guy.

[laughter]

I'm off.

Got recording in the morning.

(HIGH-PITCHED VOICE) I've got

a recording in the morning.

[groans]

- Oh, darling.

Shit, where are my keys?

How is the old game

show going, anyway?

Great!

[laughter]

How you doing?

Jeremy.

Good.

Morning, Bob.

Morning, Steven.

Well, f*ck me.

Thirty minutes early.

I just wanted to make sure

I'm not holding anyone up.

Yeah, well, if you gave a

rat's ass every other day,

I wouldn't have an ulcer

as big as Bigfoot's balls,

now, would I?

Now, that is gross, boss.

But I still love you.

See you in 30.

Uh, 29.

Ethan, how's my

favorite intern today?

29!

27!

A bit wasted, actually...

Hey, if that's a message

to your boyfriend,

I'm going to be very jealous.

I'm sending a text to my mom.

Ah.

Well, what kind of message do

you send to the boys, then?

OK, sweetheart,

you have my number.

I'd love to read

your prose sometime.

[inaudible]

You are beautiful, aren't you'?

Oops, sorry.
