Scenes 28-End

SCENE XXVIII

(Marcus Moreno, walking about on the sandy shore of the beach. He falls to his knees and les the water slosh upon him. We hear nothing but the ocean, and this is interrupted by a faint sound. Marcus looks up, wondering. He then runs to the nearby car, opens the door, and picks up the phone. He flips it up, lost for words.)

WILKES

Sydney? Are you there?

MARCUS

(extremely afraid) Who is this? How do you know my mom?

WILKES

Where is your mother?

MARCUS

She—she’s dead.

WILKES

Your mother is Sydney Watkinson? Surely she’s not…

MARCUS

Yes, my mom is Sydney Watkinson!

WILKES

How did she die?

MARCUS

(looking bug-eyed into space) Who are you? What are you doing?! HOW DO YOU KNOW MY MOM?!?!

WILKES

Oh, I know her. Yes, of course.

(Marcus quickly turns off the phone. He begins to run, completely lost.)

WILKES

Dammit! The kid’s alive.

TRUSSEL

Did you speak with Sydney?

WILKES

No, she’s dead.

TRUSSEL

She—Aaron, no!

WILKES

It doesn’t matter now, we need to find the boy.

TRUSSEL

And the woman. Shit! What did she do to get herself killed?

WILKES

Only the boy knows now. We need to lure him to our headquarters.

TRUSSEL

Where is Michael?

WILKES

Dead.

ALAN

No! You killed him!

WILKES

I wasn’t being serious. He is alive, I can assure you.

TRUSSEL

All right, Wilkes, I know what to do. Put Alan in the trunk. Give him a sandwich and we’ll be on our way.

ALAN

I have to go in the trunk?

TRUSSEL

Yes, this is your punishment for not allowing us to know the truth. You will receive a sandwich and a bottle of water. That is all.

(Camera shows ALAN maneuvering out of the trunk. He runs back to the woods to find MICHAEL)

ALAN

Michael? Mike, where—oh my god…

(Camera shows blown down trees)

ALAN

MICHAEL! MICHAEL WHERE ARE YOU?

(Alan runs back to the house he had stayed at for over a week)

ALAN

(runs in the house, screaming)

MICHAEL

Alan! What are you doing?

ALAN

Mike, you’re allright…thank God.

MICHAEL

What will we do? I’ve gone on Trussel’s computer, but I didn’t find anything useful.

ALAN

I have to contact Beth. She doesn’t know they’re after her.

MICHAEL

All right, but—

(Telephone rings)

ALAN

Who is this and what do you want?

TRUSSEL

TELL ME WHERE SHE IS!

ALAN

Never.

TRUSSEL

I am going to find and kill you.

ALAN

Oh, you’ll never catch me. Don’t think I’m hanging around this dump forever.

TRUSSEL

Once I find you—

ALAN

You’ll have to catch the others as well. They’re all over the country, one guy’s even in the Himalayas. And you don’t have your accomplice “Cindy” or whatever.

TRUSSEL

Sydney is not dead! The boy was lying!

ALAN

Of course, now we see who is truly nave. You’re probably still ten minutes away, I can run wherever and you’ll never catch me.

TRUSSEL

Oh, really?

(Alan turns around, only to see Trussel directly in his face.)

TRUSSEL

This is it. This is the end, I’ve had enough of you—and your brother? He slipped away also…well, say goodbye my friend.

(Before Trussel can pull out his revolver, Alan whips out the blade Trussel had thrown on the ground earlier and stabs him swiftly in the heart.)

TRUSSEL

PROJECT KOKORO! (He falls on the ground, limp, clearly dead)

MICHAEL

How did you get that knife?

ALAN

It’s his. I stabbed him with his own knife.

(WILKES enters)

WILKES

I—I am on your side now.

ALAN

Yeah, you’d better be! Tell me the password to Trussel’s computer so I can find the antidote for this!

WILKES

The bodies—

ALAN

Yeah, where are the deranged people? Did Trussel kill them?

WILKES

His plan was to enslave them, but since you and several others were still alive, this ruined his plan. Now they are mere living corpses, unable to move. They will perish and rot very soon unless we can attempt to find the antidote using Trussel’s computer.

(On computer, Wilkes is gone.)

ALAN

It’s no good. They will never come back. There is no antidote at all.

MICHAEL

What about the one we took? Couldn’t we use that on them?

ALAN

I’m sure that won’t work. For one thing, that was only meant for humans able to digest liquids, and for another, they couldn’t revive with just a liquid. They would need a substance far more powerful. I’m sorry, it simply will not work.

FINAL SCENE

Alan walks out the door, through the yard, and into a great valley. He stares into space, hoping wildly for a new beginning, a new truth. He kneels down, weeping miserably, moaning to God, searching for a change, a revelation. Alan then stands and walks into the forest, through the chasms of time, into a new holocaust. We see a slow, enduring fog cast over the picture, obscuring it, and finally fading into the credits, where our picture ends.

For the credits, we may use the song “New Year’s Day” by u2, we may use a classical piece, or, most likely, we will use no music at all.
