“ 9 Souls”
DRAFT DATED JUNE 25 2013
The screen opens to blackness, the sound of music plays in the back, as the voice of Abel
recites a poem.
Out of breath Out of will
We will climb the mountain top
Our hands will bleed
Our hands will shake
But as we reach the top
We will lay eyes
On our paradise
EXT- Neighborhood. Day
The darkness fades slowly. Kane is walking with his back turned to the camera, he turns his head around from time to time, feeling edgy, knowing everything has gone wrong.
EXT- SAFE HOUSE. FRONT YARD. DAY
Kane sees the parked car that peeled away from the crime scene, he stares at into the car, but hears voices coming from the back. He pulls open the gated door. He see’s Nancy drawing on the floor, she glances at him from afar but pays no attention to him. Kane knocks at the door, loudly.
( Kane )
It takes a few seconds until one of Kane’s partners Sandra opens the front door. Kane points to her bloody hands.
* shocked *
What the fuck happened!
* crying *
He got tagged.
Kane pushes his way through, knowing the worst has fallen the group.
INT. SAFE HOUSE. BEDROOM. DAY
Kane pushes the door open, to see Abel body lying on the floor, lifeless. Lucas kneels besides him, his head hung down. Praying quietly for his fellow friend.
EXT. PARK. PARK BENCH. DAY
The picture jumps months before Abel death, with Kane and Abel sitting side by side. They knew each other before life went wrong for them both, before they stepped into the world of crime. They were brothers in a way.
Why do this Abel, there’s nothing for you to gain from it?
( Chuckle )
But there is, that’s the beauty of it.
Kane shakes his head.
You sure you’ve haven’t cracked.
Abel laughs once more.
KANE ( CONT’D )
Cause that’s exactly what you sound like right now.
Believe me my friend.
Abel puts his hand on Kane shoulder, trying to get his brother in arms to follow him on this journey.
ABEL ( CONT’D )
This is the climb to the mountain top.
