REBOOT. THANK YOU FOR WAITING. Simas on Rackham Elsewhere The Waiting Room INT. THE WAITING ROOM. DAY A waiting room from the past. Enter Yoshio (age, appearance.) What he sees: a construction site. The architecture is retro futuristic. Workers are out for lunch. A movie set in southern France. Enter Anon (ageless, nondescript). Yoshio sits, takes a book from his bag. Pronto is a dead man. Enter Pronto nevertheless. Yoshio does not know what to make of him. He is dead and looks like a punk rock star. Pronto seems out of place in France. Anon roams freely, unseen by the others. He has a gift for speaking to the dead. Normally he has no trade in cadavers. He is surprised by Pronto’s quick head. Daniil is a charming poet from Russia. He is metaphysically alive and well. Something is rotten in the motherland. God is an obstacle between heaven and hell. The producer is a dead man. He has a mark On his forehead and does not enter. He goes into hiding. He is a thief. A liar and a fraud waiting for Jacques Tati.
