Ghost World

On a park bench in Central Park, you can meet anyone. Here two strangers meet and strike up a familiar conversation, familiar, at least to Penderton

Finally he recognizes his new bench mate, Jackie Jack, the Sturgeon King - a character in an unfinished play Penderton had penned years ago

Jackie Jack pleads his case for a second act, a completed life, as he offers examples of too many other characters in unfinished or discarded plays, who are wandering around waiting for their second acts

Penderton at first declines to agree to write a second act to give Jackie Jack a complete life, but comes around to the idea just as it's getting dark

As Jackie Jack escorts Penderton out of the park, Penderton is really being taken further into his own broken mind

On a park bench, two strangers meet. What they have in common is more than just coincidence
