FADE IN: EXT. A CITY SKYLINE - NIGHT
We see a city skyline lit up by the bright lights of the buildings. Suddenly, we hear a scream and the camera pans down to reveal JEN, a young woman, falling from a high-rise building. She is screaming in terror as she plummets towards the ground.
INT. JEN'S BEDROOM - NIGHT
Jen wakes up in a cold sweat. She looks around, disoriented, and realizes it was just a dream. She checks her phone and sees that it's 3:00 AM. She rubs her eyes and lies back down, trying to calm down. Suddenly, she hears a knock on her door. She gets up and opens it to find her friend, CHRIS, standing outside. Chris is a friendly and supportive guy who always has a smile on his face.
CHRIS: Hey, I heard you screaming. Are you okay?
JEN: (embarrassed) Yeah, it was just a bad dream.
CHRIS: Do you want to talk about it?
JEN: (hesitant) It's silly, really. I was falling from a building.
CHRIS: (understanding) Ah, the falling dream. I get those too. Jen looks at Chris, surprised.
JEN: You do?
CHRIS: Yeah, it's pretty common. It usually means you're feeling anxious or out of control in some aspect of your life. Jen nods, still feeling a little uneasy.
JEN: I just can't shake the feeling, you know? Like I'm not in control of anything.
CHRIS: I know the feeling. But you are in control of your life, Jen. You just have to take it one step at a time. Jen smiles at Chris, feeling comforted by his words.
JEN: Thanks, Chris. You always know what to say.
CHRIS: (smiling) That's what friends are for.
Jen and Chris share a moment before Jen heads back to bed, feeling a little more at ease.
