Against a Single Match, The Darkness Flinches1998

AGAINST A SINGLE MATCH, THE DARKNESS FLINCHES enters the world of a young boy who, after reading in the National Inquirer that aliens were coming, gets up in the middle of the night, packs a lunch and goes out into the back yard to wait for their arrival. While waiting for the prediction to come true, the boy embarks on a singular journey... one empowered by the naivete and imagination of a child, yet stung by the revelations of the world's volatility. Despite confusion, he returns from his journey filled with humor and sadness. A segment of the script is written from the captioned news. Another segment details the boy's trip to the zoo. Yet another segment takes a journey to the moon.
