"After we broke up, Justine, I crashed. I could barely sleep at night."

Justine is the name of a program Joe Frank produced as part of the series Somewhere Out There. It was originally broadcast on April 7, 1996.

Synopsis

A second person address to Justine, a former lover. Joe doesn't know why she broke up with him. He can't sleep, begins visiting her house at night. He finds a fancy car parked out front, sneaks into the house to see if she has a new lover. Joe speaks both sides of a dialog with a woman: a kiss is like a souffle, preferring older men. Aging in our society, fairy tales. Age doesn't necessarily bring wisdom: "Would you rather have dinner with Claudia Schiffer as an 80 year old woman, or Margaret Mead as a young woman?" Our obsession with youth, beauty. An older woman (Joe's mother?) describes a great book full of the ideas of fascinating people. Dreams: an absurdly detailed tatoo on Justine's arm; while carrying a cross to Calvary, Joe watches a funeral procession drops a coffin containing Joe's body into a sstream and the is resurrected, only to be shot and killed by Justine. Second person address continues: "I don't want you any more," he never knew her, her brother treated him coldly. Loving nature, being gullible and believing absurd stories, blaming people for their illnesses, not wanting to see mutual friends of an ex-lover.
