When at a rock concert on a Friday night, Maria finds herself thrown into the heavy metal music world. Surrounded by girls, drugs and rock shows, Maria soon becomes part of a runaway train hell bent for the top, but held back by the singers tortured psyche and a disaster that hit far too close to home...


55. Scene 2


The band are at Dan’s garage, waiting for Nikki. We see Nikki’s car pull up and he walks, clearly drunk, up the drive.


Nikki: (slurring) Maria hates me. She thinks I did something to Amie!


The band bundle him into the garage.


Kenny: Well you kinda did.


Nikki: That’s not the point though, is it? They found Amie’s body. She knows about the cause of death.


Dan: I see the problem. She connected it to your overdose.


Reece: Well that’s his own fault, isn’t it, for overdosing.


Kenny: (noticing papers in Nikki’s hand and taking them) What’s these (reads) woah, you write pretty good songs when drunk.


Nikki: I thought we should record them, demos for that Azuza guy. I met him this morning and he’s willing to offer a five album contract once he’s pleased with what he hears.


Reece: Yeah, let’s record while Nikki is pissed out of his head.


Nikki: I can still sing.


Dan: (laughing) you can’t sing in the first place, mate!


Kenny: Look, let’s give it a pop. We can have a few hours rehearsing, playing, et cetera, then Nikki can put them all together and we’ll see what we’ve got, yeah?


A song starts up and we see the band going about their business: tuning, recording, singing. We see Nikki gradually sobering up, drinking large quantities of Coca-Cola, and slowly starting to enjoy himself. Soon, Nikki pulls out his laptop and the screen fades, then reopens to see the band members huddled around the laptop.


Nikki: OK, here goes (presses play)


A song starts up, written specifically for the show and called Hero. The band start to smile slowly as they realise what they have written has hit potential.


Kenny: You got the number for that guy?


Nikki: Hell yeah!
