    If anyone can come up with a good title for this, it would be greatly appreciated.

    Judgment day has arrived...

    EXT. OUTDOORS – MIDDAY
    AARON wakes up – sits up to explore his surroundings
    AARON: Hello? Is anyone there?
    (No answer. AARON rises to his feet to take a walk around)
    UNKNOWN VOICE: He's still knocked out.
    (AARON hears the voice and starts to walk towards it)
    UNKNOWN VOICE: No. He won't remember anything.
    AARON sees an open door, walks in to see –
    INT.KITCHEN - MIDDAY
    QYN, looks up, keeping a straight face, continuing his conversation on the phone.
    QYN: Be here in 20 minutes. I'll call you in 10.
    AARON: Who are you?
    QYN: Shouldn't you be asking yourself that same question?
    (AARON has a bewildered look across his face as he ponders the question)
    QYN: Do you remember anything?
    AARON: Do you know who I am?
    QYN: Yes. You're...a mystery.
    AARON: That doesn't answer my question.
    QYN: Doesn't it? You are exactly as I've described; a mystery. An enigma. The very bane of my existence. Possibly. Maybe I don't know. Hopefully he won't be very long.
    AARON: Who is...
    QYN: Ask a stupid question, you better believe you'll get a stupid answer.
    (AARON is beginning to get frustrated – QYN can tell and starts to take advantage of him)
    QYN: So, should I call you Jason Bourne, or would you even know what I'm talking about?
    AARON: I've only lost my memory. I'm not stupid. What's your name?
    QYN: I'm Qyn. But don't tell anyone. *shh* Still wondering what your name is? Hmmm? I'll bet it's Bob.
    AARON: You can't tease me about crap like that. I'm smarter than this.
    QYN: Well, how'd you go and lose your memory? Slip and fall in the shower?
    (AARON throws a haymaker to QYN's face, QYN dodges the punch)
    QYN: That's okay. I need you knocked out anyways.
    AARON: I'm getting out of here!
    QYN: Let's see you try and beat me, Aaron.
    AARON:...my name is...Aaron?
    (QYN kicks AARON out of the house and into the backyard)

    EXT. BACKYARD - Night

    (AARON and QYN fight for a few moments)
    AARON: Tell me more. WHAT AM I DOING HERE?!
    QYN: I can't tell you that.
    AARON: Why do you keep playing these games with me?
    QYN: Games are fun.
    (AARON is angered and starts to punch at QYN again, AARON eventually beats QYN and puts him in a lock)
    AARON: How did I get here?
    QYN: You were brought here in a baby carriage with a letter.
    AARON: Wanna change your answer?
    QYN: Maybe? Oh, by the way, I have an itch on my left cheek. Could you get it for me?
    (AARON pulls tighter)
    QYN: OKAY!! OKAY!! OKAY!!
    AARON: How did I really get here?!
    QYN: I brought you here. Your father wanted to see you.
    AARON: Is he the one who you called?
    QYN: Possibly. He should be here by now.
    AARON: What was I like before I got here?
    QYN: A cold hearted killer.
    AARON: Are you serious?
    QYN: As a heart attack.
    AARON: So, is my dad involved in organized crime?
    QYN: No. I lied.
    AARON: Wait...what? So who am I really?
    (QYN is silent)
    AARON: Is your name really “QYN”?
    (QYN still says nothing)
    AARON: Tell me why I'm really here “Qyn”.
    QYN: You need to get out of here.
    AARON: But I want to kno-
    QYN: There are somethings the mind doesn't need to know, and your past is one of them. Do yourself a favor, and just don't even think about figuring out who you were before I brought you here. The man I called is coming to kill you for selling his secrets. You can start a new life. Use that to your advantage.
    (AARON thinks to himself for a moment)
    AARON: So...what are you gonna do?
    QYN: I'm going to talk to Yuri. I'll get him to forget about you. You need to leave. Now.
    AARON: Okay...sorry about the...you know...
    QYN: Don't worry about it. I was holding back anyways. Take care of yourself.
    AARON: Yeah. You too.
    (AARON starts toward an exit – as AARON is leaving, a car drives up not noticing AARON walking away – YURI gets out of the car but we can't see his face. QYN walks towards the car, pretending to limp)
    QYN: Hey! The guy-he, uh, escaped and I was knocked out and I don't know how long I've been out but if we go now we could still find-
    (BANG! QYN falls dead – YURI silently gets in the car and drives off – fade to AARON walking up a hill to attempt to find his way to a new life) the end.

    Psykill (psych = mind + kill)
    Crash (memory loss)
    Recall
    Blackout
    Son of the Don (Don=mob boss)

    Lots of possibilities. What the over all premise, not just the opening scene?

    I like your optimism, Jee-off :yay: . Na, but seriously, I would go to a indy film board for advice on something like this.
