Text Transcription:

Viewed from above, two men are laying in the grass along the bank of a small meandering river - they are asleep next to a popular swimming hole. Both men are sunburned where their ripped jeans and t-shirts have left exposed skin. Each has a collection of beer cans at his feet Protected by a covering of tall Northern Pine, the morning light is not yet bright enough to wake them. A third man is floating face down in the water, the gentle current quietly turning his body in circles.
