The pair sit around a fire, both staring into it. The older one offers the younger a cigarette, which he accepts. They smoke together without words for some time.

The younger man awakens to the sun. The older man is fully awake and alert, he has been up for some time. He is sitting comfortably, smoking, and staring off into the sunrise.

Older Man

Time to go.

The older man stands, picks up his pack, and begins walking, confidently, away from the sun. The younger man has no supplies, and hence simply stands and follows.

They walk together throughout the day. At one point, the younger man pokes the older one and gestures for a drink. The older man nods, removes the canteen from his supplies, and hands it to the younger man, who drinks. After he is finished, the older man gestures for him to return the canteen to the older man's possession. The younger man is reluctant, and the older man stops moving. He holds out his hand, waiting for the canteen. The younger man eventually concedes.
