Cycle Synopsis (3)
Five workers are proceeding down a country path. It begins to rain and one of the men starts to walk faster. He notices sheep in a meadow and a giant oak that seems familiar. As he reaches the tree, a truck passes with his four companions in the back. The truck is a green late-model Ford pickup. It is driven by an Indian from Brazil who used to be a shepherd, but gave up that life for a show he saw on TV. In this show it only rains when something bad is about to happen. The main character drives a pickup every morning to his job at a theme park cutting grass. He passes a group of five men wearing identical overalls. It begins to rain and tires lose their traction. Then comes a commercial counting sheep sacrificed for a tranquilizing drug.
