SHADOWS - FIRST DRAFT

FADE IN:

EXT. SOME WHERE ABOVE NEW YORK - NIGHT
                                                            
Upon the roof tops of New York City a hero named YANCY DAY a
16 year old girl about the statuesque figure of a runway
model dressed in a dark suit with strips of gray and a mask
that covers her face, travels to watch over the city.

She leaps from building to building, making protecting, her
main focus.

She stops as a howling scream causes her head to become
bothered with pain. She turns her head in the direction of
the scream, not clearly seeing where the person is.

She immediately looks up above her towards the sky. She
leaps and then back dives off the roof. Out of her arms
forms feathers as wings that helps her glide as she soars
down towards the scream that howls in her head. She then
lands as a cat in front of an alley way looking inside to
attach the human to the scream. She sees two people one male
and a female below him. This hero then reacts without a
second thought and dives the distance above the man. While
in motion she grabs the man by the shoulders and pulls him
towards her. They continue in motion and Yancy rotates 360
degrees. The man follows her path and he is pulled from the
woman below and thrown into the wall in front of the hero.
The man fall to the floor. The hero YANCY turns towards the
victimized woman and yells
                                                            
                       YANCY
RUN!
                                                            
The man turns toward the hero in pain. He gets up and before
he can stand the Hero front kicks him in the face.

The man flips back and lands on his feet like a lizard.
He then leaps for Yancy diving for her stomach slamming her
into the wall.

Yancy crosses her arm as her nails grow and she strikes the
man's face.

The man reacts to the pain and releases Yancy for a moment
then catches himself and then pushes Yancy from behind and
slams her against the other wall.

The man then launches for Yancy again.

2.


Yancy focuses and throws herself backwards clinging to the
bricks like a squirrel

The man crashes into the wall and makes a dent in it.

Yancy then notices a marking on the back of his arm that
reminds her of something.

The man seems subdued so Yancy goes down to look at it. As
she is about to the man comes out of the wall.
Yancy reverses and runs quickly towards the roof
                                                            
Yancy then stops on the roof top and starts to rub her eyes
from exhaustion.

She then flies a distance.

She looks to the right and sees a building tower abandoned

She soars down and heads for the window seal. She looks
inside. We see a man in the distance in a shadow as Yancy
tosses a bag of food at him.

She then pauses and smiles.

She then looks left below her and sees the water of the
Coney Island beach just below the D train line.
A D train is now entering the station to this last stop.
Yancy leaps from the building upon the moving train and then
towards the boardwalk sands below. The streets are empty and
she begins to stagger her way towards the sands.
                                                            
DISSOLVE TO
                                                            
MORNING
                                                            
Yancy slowly staggers upon the sand under the morning sun.
She looks exhausted. She staggers because she doesn't really
know how she got there.

Suddenly she falls and drops in the heat from walking the
great distance that morning.

Suddenly a LITTLE BOY taps her to ask her if she has seen
his mother.
                                                            
                       LITTLE BOY
      (scared)
Mommy...where's my mommy?
                                                            
Yancy struggles to get up unsure of herself
                                                            

3.

                       LITTLE BOY
I want my mommy
                                                            
Yancy now clearly sees the little boy and sits up on the
sand becomes scared and timid.
                                                            
                       YANCY
      (still dizzy)
what...
                                                            
Yancy gets up on her feet trying to make sense of where she
is. She really isn't paying attention to the boy in-fact she
walks away from him.

The little boy pull on her begging for her help and
beginning to cry
                                                            
                       LITTLE BOY
      (full of tears)
Where's mommy?
                                                            
Yancy then stops and looks down on the child realizing he's
just at lost at she is
                                                            
                       YANCY
I'm sorry...
                                                            
Yancy looks left and right dazed and confused
                                                            
                       YANCY
What...
                                                            
Yancy looks towards the water and then both directions of
the sand.
                                                            
                       YANCY
What is this place?
                                                            
                       LITTLE BOY
Please find my mommy?
                                                            
                       YANCY
      (scared and
       confused)
I, I don't understand. What... is
a mommy?
                                                            
Yancy begins to walk away from the boy and as she does the
boy follows her.
                                                            
                       LITTLE BOY
Wait...lady!
                                                            

4.

As they continue to walk from their position a Female adult
peeks behind the rocks. As of seeing Yancy and the boy she
then tries to duck out of Yancy's site.
                                                            
Not to far in the distance MARY wearing dark clothes, a bit
shorter than Yancy enters the beach and notices Yancy
walking away from her with a boy at her side towards the
woman who peeked away.
                                                            
                       MARY
      (relieved)
Found you...
                                                            
Mary then runs towards Yancy
                                                            
                       MARY
      (worried)
YANCY
                                                            
Yancy continues her path yet confused when she hears sounds
from behind her.
                                                            
                       YANCY
      (to the little boy)
Do... you hear noise?
                                                            
The little boy looks up at Yancy then towards Mary as she
calls again
                                                            
                       MARY
Yancy...
                                                            
He then looks towards his mother
                                                            
                       LITTLE BOY
The lady behind you is calling
someone named Yancy
                                                            
Yancy stops and turns towards Mary
                                                            
                       YANCY
      (to the little boy)
I think that's me.
                                                            
The boy pulls Yancy's hand towards the lady behind the
rocks
                                                            
                       LITTLE BOY
      (to Yancy)
My Mommy
                                                            
Yancy then looks towards the rocks and sees The boys mother

rocks?

       Yancy)

again.
                                                            
                       YANCY
I'm sorry, do I know you?
                                                            
Mary pauses becoming confused
                                                            
                       MARY

                       YANCY

                       MARY
Oh no... the effect of the sleep
walk is causing you to have
amnesia
                                                            
Mary looks side to side then down at the boy
                                                            
                       LITTLE BOY
      (to Mary)

                       MARY (CONT'D)
...thirty seconds
                                                            
They exit the beach towards the train that Yancy jumped

CUT TO
                                                            
EXT. MID TOWN - LATER
                                                            
INT. 54TH PRECINCT
                                                            
Inside the busy Precinct the officier are taking prisioner
inside temporary cells and arresting battering men.
the camera pans over to OFFICIER JACKSON an overweight yet
muscular cop sits behind a cluttered desk trying to figure
out a confusing case.

Jackson then pushes himself away from his desk and goes over
to the wall where different victims are posted. He pauses
and stares at them. It come clear to us that a serial killer
is what is bothering him.

OFFICIER BARNES a female cop rookie, who just learning the
ropes is Jacksons partner, too is stumped by the actions of
this killer
                                                            
Jackson faces the bullettin board
                                                            
                       OFFICER JACKSON
      (troubled)
I just don't see a connection...
                                                            
                       OFFICER BARNES
We've been over the clues piece by
piece the rage the blood the car
nothing links these victims
                                                            

10.

                       OFFICER JACKSON
      (to Officer Barns)
There has to be a link we are not
seeing.
                                                            
Barnes gets up and goes over to Jackson's ear
                                                            
                       OFFICER BARNES
      (Whisphers)
What about you know the OWL? Can
she help us out?
                                                            
                       OFFICER JACKSON
yes she's helping us out... but
Crime doesn't wait for us. It just
strike without warning
                                                            
                       OFFICER BARNES
I know that...I was just...
                                                            
                       OFFICER JACKSON
I know what you thought but times
running out
                                                            
                       OFFICER BARNES
sorry
                                                            
Jackson turns back to the wall
                                                            
                       OFFICER JACKSON
Now look here. The killer stuck
the victims in the same way
leaving similar markings in the
face area.
                                                            
                       OFFICER BARNES
That's true, but they are not all
women so that rules out the theory
of our killer being a women hater
                                                            
                       OFFICER JACKSON
So why leave the same mark on them
what's the connection
                                                            
                       OFFICER BARNES
Let's see what the mark look like.
                                                            
Barnes takes down one of the pictures and looks at a some
what chinese inscription. She's looking at it upside down so
she can't make it clear and some blood is in the path of the
scar. The inscription is means First.
                                                            

11.

                       OFFICER BARNES
What of this?
                                                            
Jackson gets up from his seat to get a closer look
                                                            
                       OFFICER JACKSON
I'm not sure.
      (to second officer)
Miller could you get this down
town to see if they could make any
thing with these marking.
      (To Barns)
C'mon
                                                            
                       OFFICER BARNES
Where we going?
                                                            
                       OFFICER JACKSON
Let's go back to where we found
the last body. May be it will help
us connect the other victims
                                                            
The cops exit the precinct
                                                            
CUT TO

Upon the computer is TONEY GILBERT is overdressed in a
Fishing outfit, typing emergency card into the computer.

Upon the screen is MARK YUN'S records.
We get to read what's on the screen
As Toney hears foot steps he turns his head slightly and
then drags the file down to the bottom of the screen
MS SUSAN in the office carrying a wet umbrella after picking
up a cup of coffee from outside. She then goes over to her
desk picks up a stack of cards and hands it to Toney.
                                                            
                       MS SUSAN
Looks like you just jumped off a
ship in a rain storm.
                                                            
Toney lifts his head and turns to Ms Susan
                                                            
                       TONEY
huh...
                                                            
                       MS SUSAN
It's drizzling outside not
flooding
                                                            

12.

                       TONEY
Human rights you know, to wear
what you want, besides I got in a
bit late and I wanted to catch up
so I forgot to take it off.
                                                            
                       MS SUSAN
      (confused a bit)
Right...uh here's more of those
cards.
                                                            
                       TONEY
Okay just leave them right here
                                                            
Susan places the cards down and Toney gets up grabs the
Attendance folders and goes over to the mailboxes to put the
folders in the appropiate boxes.

Susan then sees Mary and Yancy enter the office wearing
their rain jackets
                                                            
The secretary reaches Mary and Yancy and prepares to hands
them a late pass.

Toney turns his head and sees them at the counter and turns
pausing with the folders and heads back to the computer.
                                                            
The secretary prepares to hand the two girls late passes
                                                            
                       MS SUSAN
You two are later than yesterday
What's gives?
                                                            
                       MARY
      (To Ms Susan)
overslept again
      (To Yancy)
Now today we're taking a Chinese
appreciation class which is a 5
credit class that could help us a
good deal when we graduate.
                                                            
Mary then sees Toney as he walks over to the computer
                                                            
                       MARY
      (to Toney)
Going fishing Toney?
                                                            
Yancy looks up at Mary when she makes that coment
                                                            
Toney sees Mary and then knows what she's referring to
                                                            

13.

                       TONEY
      (disruppted)
Okay okay. I'll take it off.
                                                            
Toney stands up and starts to remove the coat. He then looks
at Ms. Susan as she smile at him. He smiles back at her and
continues to take the coat off.
You see a suspenders outfit below the jacket over a short
sleeve shirt.
                                                            
Thunder suddenly strikes very softly.

Toney snaps his head back at the window cautiously.
Then Toney looks at Yancy as he is looking at her.

Toney smiles embarassed at Yancy and then rises to take off
his Fisherman's outfit
                                                            
Tomey removes his top coat and you see a short sleeve shirt
on under. He reveals a piece of a tattoo on his right arm.

Yancy notices part of the tattoo for a moment turns away to
Mary. Yancy does takes another look at the tattoo for a
momment then turns to Mary.
                                                            
Yancy is still focused on the tattoo
                                                            
                       YANCY
      (to Mary)
uh...Why did I decide to take that
class?
                                                            
Just then Mark Yun covers Yancy's eyes
                                                            
                       MARK
Guess who?
                                                            
                       MARY
That's the reason why.
                                                            
Yancy pulls Mark's hands off her face and turns around and
looks at him
                                                            
                       YANCY
And you are?
                                                            
Mary gives Yancy the eye to play along.
                                                            
                       MARY
      (to Yancy)
Mark
                                                            
Yancy looks at Mary confused then looks at Mark
                                                            

14.

                       YANCY
      (pretending to
       remember)

                       MARK

special celebration.
                                                            
Toney looks up from the computer and cuts in stopping from
his work
                                                            
                       TONEY
      (Chinese
       translation)
They say it is a very important
celebration for the oldest child
born. He is the one to replace the
dad if something were to happen.
                                                            
                       MS SUSAN

interest in Chinese?

Yancy stands behind timidly waiting for Mary to help her.
                                                            
                       TONEY
      (to Susan)
Being the oldest cause you to
wonder if there is any importance
to it...and in my research I
learned about the chinese and how
they praise the eldest child.
                                                            
                       MS SUSAN

Everytime he comitted a murder he
did so to leave them here. The
victim would be number five if it
was a pattern on a die.
                                                            
                       OFFICER BARNES
That's true but what does number
five have to do with the murder.

                       YANCY
I'm not sure what day I was born
my parents died when I was a baby.

                       YANCY

Yancy then starts to exit the examing room and the doctor
reminds her

The class pauses

                       MARY
      (interupting)
Mark's never been absent a day in
his life. You must be mistaken.
                                                            

43.

                       MR.KAM

be here...Now could you please

Mary starts getting her books and then taps Yancy
                                                            
                       MARY
      (interupting)
Actually I need to take a trip to
the office if you are not showing

                       MR.KAM

Ms Susan looks up from her computer
                                                            
                       MARY

out. That didn't strike any one as
weird being that he's never out.
                                                            
Yancy looks over to Mary confused
                                                            
                       YANCY
Are you sure you're not the one in
love with him?

                       MARY
      (upset)

Ms Susan continues to type
                                                            
                       MARY
      (jokingly)
Do you understand that he may well
be the future father of my
children and I need to know if

Three officers are in the room with Toney at the time.
OFFICIER EPSON is at the computer taking a statment from
Toney as he is talking up a storm.
Upon Epson's desk is a Chinese Comic that one person had

                       TONEY
...and it started when he crossed
me in the mens room. I let it go

Toney pauses and sees his favorit comic book on the desk
                                                            
                       TONEY
      (suprised)
Hey that's Tsui Yu-on..

                       TONEY

                       OFFICER EPSON
The last person before you made a
statement left it for me as a
gift. A way of thanks I guess.
                                                            
Toney finishes writing down his address and birth date and
hands it to Officer Epson
                                                            
                       TONEY
I took a few classes that's how I
got interested in these comics...
                                                            
Toney pauses dwelling on the comic
                                                            
                       OFFICER EPSON
The statement?
                                                            
                       TONEY

                       OFFICER EPSON
      (interupting)
Excuse me.
                                                            
The three officers clear the room and leave Toney at the
desk alone with the computer.
Toney sits there for awhile patiently.

48.

Suddenly he looks to see if someone is returning.
No one does.
Toney then jumps into Epson's seat and starts typing on the
computer.
He then starts to open police records.
The computer shows profiles of several different people.
Toney checks the dates and goes to file and print.
He then types in The name TONEY DOSER SR
A face and a related name shows up on the computer but it
isn't his.
Toney moves the curser to file then print.
The paper prints
Toney closes the file grabs the papers and turns back
towards the wall in the back that's a big mirror.
He then smiles and winks at it and then rushes out of the
station.

      (to Jackson)
Looks like he's on to us.
                                                            
                       OFFICER JACKSON
      (to crew)
Okay listen up he could be our man
and or he could be playing us to
throw us off. Either way he
eventually will lead us to his
next target
      (to Epson)
Epson check to see who's profiles
he typed out on your computer. He
seems to be interested in Chinese
I've notice. See if that is a link
in any way to our case
      (To Phillps and
       Klinger)
You two are going to have to find
out his last place of employment.
We have to catch him in the act to
prove he's our man or we have no
case
      (to Barnes)
You come with me!
                                                            
The officers dispurse

Days pass and Toney is sending the officers on a wild goose
chase.

The officers go from door to door holding up pictures of
potenial victims.

When they victims arrive at the door the cops are puzzled

Three Bodies later show are show up but Toney is no where
near any of the murders.

All the addresses that Toney typed up were addresses to
throw the cops off his trail.

We see the cops at different crime scenes scratching their
heads not understanding why they can't catch this guy.
They think they may be following the wrong man

                       MARY

from Mark. I'm starting to worry.
                                                            
                       YANCY

                       MARY

                       MARY

                       YANCY

don't have to worry, now do I.
                                                            
                       MARY
What happened to you? What
happened to the Yancy that cared
about everything?
                                                            
                       YANCY
Nothing I still care about
everything...Everything that
concerns me! That's all.
Is there anything you wanted to
say.
                                                            
                       MARY

                       YANCY

                       MARY (V.O.)
Okay thanks Ms Day...
                                                            
Mary hangs up the phone again and pauses to try to connect
with Yancy through her mind.
                                                            
Mary feels pain of emptiness

Yancy then runs away from Mary.
People on the street go to help Mary up.

Toney leaves his car. Gets out on foot and follows Yancy.

Mary comes to.
                                                            
                       MARY
      (confused)
Where did she go?
                                                            
One of the pedesitrians point in the direction Yancy went.
                                                            
Mary looks around getting her focus and sees the radio on
the ground broken.
                                                            
                       MARY
      (psst)
Great! just great!
                                                            
Mary gets up and runs after Yancy.
                                                            
As Mary is running down the street she sees an abandoned
police car. The windows are open.

Mary looks for the officers and sees no one.

Mary then grabs the radio and calls to Jackson

                                                            

55.

                       MARY
Jackson are you out there? I need
you please!
                                                            
                       OFFICER JACKSON (V.O.)
Mary
                                                            
                       MARY

                       OFFICER JACKSON (V.O.)
      (interrupting)

                       MARY
      (interrupting)

Mary stands in shock...
                                                            
                       OFFICER JACKSON (V.O.)
Mary. Did you locate your
friend...
                                                            
Mary stops tearing for a minute
                                                            
                       MARY
      (still upset)
Yeah she's out of control. She hit
me and ran away and I don't know
where she went. She's not herself.
                                                            
CUT TO
                                                            
EXT. 14TH STREET - PARK - LATER
                                                            
Yancy walks into the park a bit confused as the pills's
sideeffects continue to screw her up.
She comes up to Mr. Kam the Sub in her class sitting at a
checker table writing down Chinese symbols and rolling a
DIE.

Yancy stops to question him not recongizing him.
                                                            
                       YANCY
      (bubblily)
What's ya doing?
                                                            
Mr Kam glances up at Yancy
                                                            
                       MR.KAM
oh hi Ms Day. I 'm crea...
                                                            

56.

                       YANCY
      (interrupting)
hey...how you know my name!
                                                            
                       MR.KAM
Let's see I subbed in Gym, Music
and Math. Oh yeah also in your
Chinese Appreciation class, which
you and Mary skipped the other
day.
                                                            
                       YANCY
      (still bubblely)
oh...sorry I guess
                                                            
Yancy sits down opposite Mr Kam.
                                                            
                       MR.KAM
anyway as I was about to say I
creating some sort of pobability
game.
                                                            
                       YANCY
      (excited)
Can I try?
                                                            
                       MR.KAM
It's not perfected yet so...
                                                            
Yancy is looking down at Mr Kam's paper
                                                            
                       YANCY
      (interrupting)
Are those symbols for this game?
                                                            
                       MR.KAM
Yes uh...Writing my notes in
Chinese is faster for me.
                                                            
Officer Barnes is strolling through the park asking poeple
about a picture in her hand
                                                            
                       YANCY
You know I really love a guy with
brains.
                                                            
Mr Kam looks up at Yancy shocked by her statement
                                                            
                       MR.KAM
Does your parents know what you
are doing?
                                                            

57.

                       YANCY
Not exactly.
                                                            
                       MR.KAM
you need to be careful, saying
stuff like that to grown ups. It
could be dangerous.
                                                            
                       YANCY
      (mad)
Is everyone going to play my
parent!
                                                            
Yancy gets up to leave.
                                                            
                       MR.KAM
Hey you want to talk about it?
                                                            
Yancy stops and turns her head to Mr Kam.
                                                            
                       YANCY
please!
                                                            
Officer Barnes comes to Mr Kam's table after he had just
rolled a five on his Die upon the table.
                                                            
                       OFFICER BARNES
Have you seen this girl?
                                                            
Mr. Kam looks up at Officer Barnes
                                                            
                       MR.KAM
uh no...but...
                                                            
Mr. Kam points at Yancy leaving his area for the trees
ahead.
                                                            
                       MR.KAM
I think she maybe lost. She's been
talking out of her head..
                                                            
Barnes looks ahead at Yancy...
                                                            
                       MR.KAM
Are you... su..
                                                            
Officer Barnes eyes then catches Mr. Kam's notebook and she
notices the top symbol.

Barnes then gets a flash of the symbol on the pictures she
seen on the victims
                                                            

58.

Barnes then looks slightly to the right and sees the Die as
a five on the table.

She then connects the two
                                                            
Barnes points down to Kam's book
                                                            
                       OFFICER BARNES
Does this Chinese character mean
One or First?
                                                            
Barnes grabs the radio
                                                            
                       OFFICER BARNES
      (psst)
It was right in front of my face!
                                                            
                       OFFICER BARNES
      (to the radio)
Jackson come in
                                                            
                       OFFICER JACKSON (v.o)
      (on radio)
This is Jackson...
                                                            
                       OFFICER BARNES
      (to the radio)
I think I figured it out...
                                                            
                       OFFICER JACKSON (v.o)
      (on radio)
speak...
                                                            
                       OFFICER BARNES
...The reason he put all the
victim in the pattern we found
them so we would see them
first...as we do on a Die and as
we do in real life. The Firstborn.
Each victim was a Firstborn. That
was the other reason for leaving
the chinese symbol on the victims.
                                                            
                       OFFICER JACKSON (v.o)
      (interrupting)
This killer is obsessed with
killing Firstborns?
                                                            
                       OFFICER BARNES
yeah
                                                            

59.

                       OFFICER JACKSON (v.o)
      (on radio)
Why?
                                                            
Barnes is looking directly at Yancy in the distance.
                                                            
                       OFFICER BARNES
I don't know but I may have a
lead. on that kid Mary was looking
for, perhaps they connect some
how.
                                                            
Barnes then turns to thank Mr. Kam
                                                            
                       OFFICER BARNES
Thanks
                                                            
She then turns back to head for Yancy and Yancy is gone.

Barnes doesn't see Yancy.
                                                            
                       OFFICER BARNES
      (shocked)
What the?...
                                                            
Barnes then runs towards the direction Yancy used to be to
see if she just turn a corner or something.

She stops looks around and doesn't see Yancy anywhere.
                                                            
                       OFFICER BARNES
Where the heck did she go?
                                                            
Barnes pulls out her radio
                                                            
                       OFFICER BARNES
Jackson I got a problem. I lost
her.
                                                            
Barnes turns around in circles and then exits the scene
                                                            
FADE OUT:
                                                            
FADE IN:
                                                            
INT. MARY'S ROOM.
                                                            
Yancy is tied up in a chair struggling to get out.
                                                            
                       MARY
Be quiet and I'll let you loose in
a few.
                                                            

60.

Yancy starts to panic as she again is frighten and a bit
timid.

Mary then removes the ropes.
                                                            
                       MARY
I'm sorry I had to do this to you
but it was the only way I could
get you away from those pills.
                                                            
                       YANCY
I need those pills!
                                                            
                       MARY
No you don't. I know what's wrong
now.
                                                            
                       YANCY
      (interrupting)
but I'm strong with them...
                                                            
                       MARY
You were always strong. Something
closed you out created a shell and
only made the strong come out at
night. Yeah the pills helped it
helped me see that you are hiding
inside and you have to let go of
that.
                                                            
                       YANCY
I can't. I can't do it without
them.
                                                            
                       MARY
you're going to have to try.
                                                            
The phone rings in Mary's room
                                                            
                       MARY
Only you can do it! Not those
stupid pills. Those pills are not
the answer.
                                                            
Mary goes to answer the phone.
                                                            
                       MARY
      (to the phone)
Hello
                                                            
                       OFFICER JACKSON (v.o)
      (on the phone)
Have you found your friend?
                                                            

61.

                       MARY
yeah but...
                                                            
                       OFFICER JACKSON (v.o.)
      (interrupting)
Good because we need her help
badly.
                                                            
Mary looks at Yancy sitting in the chair with her head down.
                                                            
                       MARY
I don't know if she can. She's
different now.
                                                            
                       OFFICER JACKSON (v.o.)
Try to convince her. Times running
out and we keep running into dead
ends
                                                            
                       MARY
      (to Yancy)
You can lay down on my bed. I have
to go down to the precinct to help
out Officer Jackson. Just think
about what I said.
                                                            
Mary exits.
                                                            
CUT TO.
                                                            
EXT. 54TH PRECINCT - LATER
                                                            
INT. 54TH PRECINCT - MEETING ROOM
                                                            
Mary is escorted into the room by officer Phillips as
Jackson is before the others of the precinct going over the
clues.
                                                            
                       OFFICER JACKSON
      (To crew)
This guy more puzzling stranger by
the minute. This guy Toney Doser
what we have on him...
      (to Mary)
uh...sit down over here
                                                            
                       MARY
      (interrupting)
Toney? The man that works at my
school.
                                                            

62.

                       OFFICER JACKSON
      (to Mary)
That's the one.
                                                            
                       MARY
      (shocked)
You've got to be mistaken. He's a
nice guy.
                                                            
                       OFFICER JACKSON
We'll that same nice guy has been
from foster home to foster home.
On his rap sheet he has a history
of domestic abuse. He could be
upset with his parents for giving
him up. What puzzles me is that
every one he killed was the
firstborn of the family.
                                                            
Jackson hands Mary the file of Toney's rap sheet.

Mary opens the file and starts to look through it

It shows records of Toney Gilbert and pictures of him going
from foster home to foster home. It also shows his history
of domestic abuse. Then later she looks down and sees his
real name ROBERT DAY
                                                            
Mary looks up at Jackson
                                                            
                       OFFICER JACKSON
      (To Mary)
We all were fooled. After we
started making visits to the homes
that he pulled up on the computer.
It caused us to question his
motives. He wanted us to believe
something that wasn't. Toney
Gilbert never existed he made him
up. His real name is what you see
in the folder Robert Day
      (To his crew)
He's got a lead ahead of us
                                                            
                       MARY
      (interrupting)
Not anymore. I know where he's
going.
                                                            
                       OFFICER JACKSON
what?
                                                            

63.

                       MARY
Everyone wants love. He's been
moved from home to home because
that isn't where he wants to be.
He wants to be with his parents
but they don't want him. So in any
event he's going to take that away
from them. To him every Firstborn
in tbe world is the burden he
thought he was on his parents so
he's going to ease their pain.
He's trying to find his parents
and then he's going to kill them.
                                                            
                       OFFICER JACKSON
      (To Epson)
Get on the computer find anyone
related to Day we have to find his
parents before he does.
                                                            
Mary looks up and stays quiet knowing she could not reveal a
secret.
                                                            
Epson rushes over to his computer, Phillips starts making
phone call Barnes and Jackson starts to go over routes in
the city that he had tracked already to see where he will
strike next.
                                                            
Mary gets up and starts watching the crew through the two
way mirror and starts reflecting sadden that she can't say
any thing knowing her friend maybe become the victim of
their torchure as well as Toney's.
                                                            
CUT TO
                                                            
INT. MARY'S ROOM - LATE NIGHT
                                                            
Yancy watches the news as she sees the reporter talking
about the serial killer
                                                            
                       NEWS REPORTER (o.s.)
The cops are still stumped by the
these mass killing that have taken
place through out the city. Seven
victims have been found just this
pass week and each were found in
similar positions...
                                                            
The camera moves close to Yancy's face as we see reflections
on her face of the images on the T.V.
                                                            

64.

DISSOLVE TO:
                                                            
DREAM SCENE
                                                            
Yancy is waken by the thunderous noise outside. She runs
though the house towards the kitchen where other noise is
going on other than the thunde. One teen is dressed in a
fisherman's suit arguing with a female.
                                                            
The images flash in her head like a strobe as the strike in
her head.
She starts to see the images clearer as the light starts to
slowly brighten his face.
Yancy then starts to shy away as the man shows an evil smile
at her.
She couldn't do a thing and this caused her great pain.
He repeatedly stabbed the older female again and again.

Yancy as small as she was back away and cried more and more.

He turns to Yancy and yells
                                                            
                       TONEY
      (in the shadow)
Where's your father!
                                                            
He searched and tears up the house searching for him. He
found no one else and left her alone in the empty house.

He runs towards the door and he hears the lighten. He cowers
and for a moment in fright the turns back to Yancy chasing
her through the house.

she starts to blend the dream with real life as she start to
panic again as he continues to chase her.
                                                            
RETURN TO SCENE
                                                            
Yancy starts feel as if the walls are closing in on her.
                                                            
                       NEWS REPORTER (o.s)
...no one know where or when he
will strike next. The cops were
unable to come up with any
sketches of what this victim may
look like because the victim that
survived the attack were too
scared to give any statemet...
                                                            
                       YANCY
      (crying)
No! no...No
                                                            

65.

Yancy backs away towards the door scared of his image as
when she was a little child
                                                            
                       YANCY
      (crying and scared)
You're not going to get me no...
                                                            
Yancy begins to back away scared of every corner as if he
was there trying to hurt her.
                                                            
Yancy looks the way of the door and runs. She starts to runs
faster and faster.
                                                            
DISSOLVE TO
                                                            
As Yancy runs, the squad car travels also towards the
Toney's mother's house.
                                                            
EXT. 256TH STREET MANHATTAN
                                                            
Mary and the Cops reach the mother's house and we see
simulataneously split screen Jackson's crew arriving at the
house as Yancy starts speed increases.
                                                            
CUT TO
                                                            
EXT. TONEY'S MOTHER'S DRIVEWAY
                                                            
Mary stays in the car with Barnes as you see the reflection
on her windsheild looking at the building blowing up.

Barnes turns her head towards the house and runs out to
Jackson as he falls to the floor in front of the building.

Barnes Runs back to the car and yells at Mary to call 911

Mary gets out of the back seat and goes to the front to get
on the radio.

Yancy is speeding towards the building and she sees Mary and
Jackson below near the burning building.

Mary runs to Barnes side and looks up as Yancy comes to
their side
                                                            
Yancy stops as she sees the burning building and the squad
cars surrounding the house.

then she sees Mary by the side of Jackson upon the ground
and Barnes also next to his side.
                                                            

66.

                       MARY
      (to Yancy)
This is the result of the city's
serial killer. We figure out who
it is. The lovable Toney Gilbert
who works at out school. His real
name is Robert Day. Do you know
him?
                                                            
                       YANCY
      (ashamed and
       shocked)
He's my brother.
                                                            
                       MARY
He knew our every moves. I didn't
know it was him who was killing.
We just figure he may be after his
parents but we were too late. They
need you Yancy to stop him.
There's no one else that can do
it.
                                                            
                       YANCY
      (tearing)
My mother died years ago. he
killed her. He wanted to kill my
father too. He never found him. I
hid him. I didn't know he was
doing this I thought he was gone.
He became some one else so I did
not recongize him I can't stop
him. He's stronger.
                                                            
                       MARY
      (tearing)
You're not that little girl
anymore. You're the stronger
one...You just have to believe
that.
                                                            
Yancy lowers her head in pain knowing she has to leave
                                                            
                       YANCY
I think he found where I hid my
father.
                                                            
Mary crying bends down to look Yancy in the eyes.
                                                            
                       MARY
I couldn't talk with you...
      (pointing to her
       head)
            (MORE)

67.

                       MARY (cont'd)
up here when you are not as that
strong person. When you became
that other person it blocked me
out all to gether. I need you.
This world needs you and most of
all your father needs you. If you
don't believe in yourself he won't
stop killing.
                                                            
Yancy looks left into the distance then back at Mary. She
then reaches deep inside herself and starts to build up her
confidence. She then stands straighter and stronger as she
did when she became the hero at night.
                                                            
                       YANCY
      (sternly)
He's not going take down anyone
else
                                                            
                       MARY
You need a plan.
                                                            
                       YANCY
No time. I'm going to have to wing
it.
                                                            
On that cue Yancy holds her fist in front of her face and
tighten up.
                                                            
                       YANCY
stand back.
                                                            
Yancy then whips her hands by her side and spreads her
fingers as they then start to grow.
With in seconds wings start to form and her clothing starts
to change.
Suddenly she forms as The Night OWL once again.
Yancy then takes to flight.
                                                            
Mary looks up frighten for Yancy's life.
                                                            
                       MARY
Be careful Moonsister.
                                                            
Yancy hears Mary as she flies through the skys
                                                            
Mary hears Yancy's voice in her head
                                                            
                       YANCY (v.o)
Just keep rooting for me.
                                                            
Mary smiles up towards the sky as she watches Yancy head for

68.

the battle

Yancy loops in the air at the speed of an owl. She then
passes through the clouds and then circles down.

From her eye view she heads for Greenpoint Brooklyn
                                                            
CUT TO
                                                            
EXT. GREENPOINT - GREEN STREET - LATER
                                                            
On the abandon streets a man races down the dark alley way
towards buildings that look abandoned. The mans image seems
to be as a shadowy figure still.

The man reaches a building and he runs up the stairs.
He turns around and we only see his eyes looking back to see
if anyone is behind him.

                                                            
CUT TO
                                                            
EXT. ABOVE THE CITY SKIES - OVER THE HUDSON - LATER
                                                            
Yancy now as Night Owl flies closer and closer to her
distination.
She is now passing the flying pass Randalls Island as she
heads towards Greenpoint.
                                                            
Yancy from a birdseye view then spots her mark.

Yancy then soars down at rapid speed.
                                                            
EXT. GREENSTREET WAREHOUSE
                                                            
INT. GREENSTREET WAREHOUSE - THIRD FLOOR - MIDDLE WINDOW
                                                            
Yancy crashes through the window. The glass flies all over
the place and as she lands it's as if time had slowed down.
She lands in a warrior position nealling and spreading her
wings.
She pauses as cautious as a serpent.
She slowly rises as she heads for the areas where she had
left her father.

She makes her way towards the staircase and pears her head
left to look ahead to see if anyone is there.

She walks downstairs to go to the room below where her
father is.


69.

She then reaches the door way to a darkroom that only shows
the shadow of a man from the outside light tied up in the
middle of the room.

Without looking and just reacting Yancy runs towards him
                                                            
                       YANCY
DAD!
                                                            
As Yancy is hurling her way over to free her day he lifts
his bruised and beaten head to try to warn her not to come
any closer.

As he raises his head Toney tackles Yancy from the side when
she reaches midway point to her father.

Yancy is spun in the air left rotating 360 degrees over
Toney and landing on her stomach catching herself with her
hands.

Toney slams into the wall unable to take Yancy with him.

Yancy looks Toney's way as he turns around and comes for her
again.

He then runs her towards the wal. Yancy and jumps up front
tumbles and kicks against the wall throwing herself behind
Toney and kicking him into it.

Toney then inferiates and turns towards Yancy
                                                            
                       YANCY
Why are you doing this Robert?
                                                            
Toney then transforms into a bull form
                                                            
                       YANCY
      (shocked)
Arh CRAP!
                                                            
Toney lanches for Yancy and Yancy Quickly turns her top
torso righ t dodging the his charge.

Toney lands on all fours and turns towards Yancy as she
starts to run.

As Yancy is running she looks above and notices pipes and
she jumps for them.
Toney then leaps behind Yancy and she is banged into the
ceiling.

Yancy then falls towards the ground and Toney follows.


70.

Just before Toney comes to the ground on top of Yancy she
rolls out of the way.

In the roll motion Yancy gets to her feet and head for the
next room that is full of crates.

Toney transforms into a Hippo and starts to charge the wall.

Toney crashes the wall open and heads for Yancy

Yancy leaps above a crate and starts to hide from the
charging hippo.

Toney slows down and changes back into Himself unable to
find Yancy through the maze of boxes.

                                                            
                       TONEY
Come out Yancy! I know you're in
here.
                                                            
Yancy starts flying like a bat and quietly through out the
room back and forth so Toney couldn't pin point exactly
where she was.

                                                            
                       YANCY
      (moving around)
Robert you've killed to many. You
left all those families mourning.
                                                            
                       TONEY
They must be that way. It is best
for them.
                                                            
                       YANCY
What are you saying no one
deserves to die!
                                                            
                       TONEY
      (smiling)
There you are!
                                                            
Toney leaps up on top of the crates in the form of a
cougar.
He sends out a roar towards Yancy below him.

Yancy looks up and as Toney leaps downward she leaps up and
back hovering over the crates.


71.

Toney crashes the boxes below him and falling upon his
stomach. Toney gets back on all four legs and runs around
the crates.

Yancy exits the room full of supplies for a store.

Each roll has hundreds of stuff on the shelves. Some shelves
have open ways where supplies were removed and the spaces
were wide enough for Yancy to hide.

Toney transforms back on four legs and starts to slowly walk
searching as he sees how vast the room is.
                                                            
                       TONEY
You're ruining my plans. I
wouldn't have to kill you if would
have just stayed home.
                                                            
Toney enters the room and closes the door behind him.
                                                            
Toney still searches the area.

Yancy hovers in the shadows very close to him as he just
passes her.

Yancy then comes down to kicks Toney from the back. Toney
then quickly as he hears her rotates jumping in the air
doing a roundhouse kick to Yancy's face.

Yancy is thrown through the supply stack to the next two
aisle and crashes on to the floor.

Toney runs over to the aisle and doesn't see Yancy.

Toney turns around after seeing Yancy's silhouette run to
the next aisle.

Toney transforms again into the cougar jumps uptop and
starts going from aisle to aisle searching for Yancy.
                                                            
Yancy makes her way back to the door and lands.

She starts to stuggle with the door knob unable to open it.
She then starts to kick it and she crashes it open.

Toney at the opposite end of the room now knows where Yancy
is.

Toney starts to run down the aisle towards the door exit.

He runs through the door way and pauses looking left and
right.


72.

Yancy is above him in the shadow and comes down on him.

She starts to wrestle him as a tiger and tries to get a hold
of him.

Toney suddenly transforms into a Dragon lizard and starts to
craw at Yancy.

Yancy jumps away frighten of this change because she never
seen one like it before.

Toney starts to corner and Yancy again.
                                                            
                       YANCY
We we're once a family. Robert you
can change.
                                                            
                       TONEY
Yeah I can change...your
existence. All I wanted was love
but they and they hated me for one
little thing
                                                            
Yancy starts to back away getting out of Toney's range.
                                                            
                       YANCY
You got angry threw our baby
brother against the wall because
he had was getting a little more
attention. That wasn't just a
little thing.
                                                            
                       TONEY
      (very upset)
He was taking them from me...
                                                            
Toney lanches at her and misses realizing she needs to be
gone
                                                            
                       TONEY
Then you came! Now you must die
also and there's no way you can
stop me.
                                                            
Toney then leaps again at a cornered Yancy. She then slides
down and rips her crawls at the belly of the beast he has
become.

Minor scratches occur but none enough to damage the Lizard.

Toney crashes and falls to the floor head first. He turns
around morphing to man then back to the beast.


73.

Yancy is becoming tired and looks at Toney and then at the
open doorway.

Yancy runs through the door way toward the staircase that
leads to the room she entered.
                                                            
Yancy jumps to fly but she is unable to.
                                                            
CUT TO.
                                                            
EXT. NIGHT SKY
                                                            
The clouds start to form around the moon causing the night
to become dreadful
                                                            
CUT TO.
                                                            
INT. INSIDE WAREHOUSE
                                                            
Toney starts his way back for Yancy.
                                                            
                       YANCY
      (panicking)
I can't fly...
                                                            
Yancy starts to run for the stair case.

Toney rushes behind her turning into cheetah.

Yancy jumps over tables and other stuff that are in the room


Toney then leaps on top of Yancy and pins her down just
below the window seal that she entered.

Yancy is using her human strength to try and fight her way
out of his grip

Toney's grips is very strong and it starts to subdue Yancy.

Suddenly lighten strikes a flashes outside the window.

The camera moves in closer as Yancy struggles in pain
                                                            
                       YANCY
      (terrified)
GET OFF OF ME!
                                                            
                       TONEY
Just give in. There's no way out.
                                                            
camera zooms in on Yancy's face shedding tears
                                                            
CUT TO.
                                                            

74.

EXT. NIGHT SKY
                                                            
The lighten strikes again.
                                                            
CUT TO.
                                                            
INT. WARE HOUSE
                                                            
Yancy struggling turns her eyes to the sky as the rain
begins to fall
                                                            
CUT TO
                                                            
FLASH BACK
                                                            
Yancy sees a flash of when they were smaller and Toney at
the door when the lighten sounded he jumped

Yancy remembers the main office when Toney was wearing a
Fisherman's outfit and jumped at the sound of lighten.

                                                            
RETURN TO SCENE
                                                            
Yancy turns her tearing eyes from the window and looks at
Toney and starts smiling as her adrenline starts to boil.

She starts to get stronger with her human strength and
starts to push Toney off of her
                                                            
                       YANCY
      (struggling)
One thing I learned through
life...
Everyone has a weakness!
                                                            
Yancy then using her legs tumble kicks Toney up towards the
open window out into the rain.

Toney begins to fly outside down towards the ground
                                                            
                       TONEY
      (feain fear)
NOOOOOOOOOOOOO!
                                                            
As Toney starts to fall towards the ground the rain begins
to melts his skin as if it were acid.
                                                            
                       TONEY
AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!
                                                            
Toney hits the ground and shatters into millions of pieces.
                                                            

75.

Yancy is looking down the tall tower into the rain watching
Toney disperse.
                                                            
                       YANCY
      (saddened)
Goodbye Robert...
                                                            
Yancy saddened turns away and heads for her father.
                                                            
DISSOLVE TO
                                                            
INT. ROOM WHERE FATHER IS TIED
                                                            
Yancy is untying her father.
She then hugs him as he does her.

Suddenly we hear sirens below...
Yancy looks towards the window then towards her Father
                                                            
                       YANCY
      (smiling)
You can come home now Daddy.
                                                            


FADE OUT.
