Set up camp in pure euphoria

Group lays out, settles in and makes a fire. Music plays and weird dancing begins. Even Logan is dancing.

Gradster - on 02/05/2015

"See" by Tycho plays and a montage of living there begins. Images portray an elevated euphoric lifestyle yet as it progresses over time images of paranoia amongst Ethan, Logan and Patrick are shown. The main group wants to live there freely and temporarily, yet conflict depicts that Ethan, Logan and Patrick don't want to leave -- they want to completely leave society.

The music ends and the last image is of Ethan yelling at the group.

976tc6 - on 02/08/2015

Ethan looks at Patrick and Logan for back up. They just stare at him.

976tc6 - on 02/08/2015

The tension increases as everyone looks around.

976tc6 - on 02/08/2015
