Scene Title: The Prayer Terminal
Nothing can keep the TSA agent at LaGuardia airport from practing his religion. It is late, past 10pm, and as he hears the call to prayer (whether internally or not), he takes himself to a corridor off the main path to ground transportation. He readies himself for worship by laying out the closest thing he has to a prayer rug, a NYC subway map. As the last flights land, and tourists and business men make their way home, they pass the man kneeling on a subway map. Both parties keep to themselves.
Scene Title: “Good morning good brother”
