RATED

After suicides climb to ten percent of the population a company called ATC is given a contract to take care of the victims. Absolutionists or Ab-agents are sent to every possible suicide to determine if foul play's involved and their decisions are final. Dr. Kirum Lambert is training a new Ab-Agent, Elicia Mangum, when things go very wrong and they are drawn into a web of conspiracy and deception. The ATC might be responsible for millions of deaths and two of its agents seek the truth despite great peril to their families, career and maybe even their lives.

WINK

FADE IN:

INT. REVEREND'S SUICIDE - DAY
                                                            
Inside Rev. Plackard's home a thirteen year old boy JOSEPH
CRANDLE is painting a demon on the wall. REVEREND CHARLES
EDWARD PLACKARD is sweating profusely. He stares at a
cross-blade and shakes his head no.

Joseph writes an 'M' and starts to write an 'i' next to the
picture of the demon. He turns to see the reverend on a step
ladder in the middle of the room with a noose around his
neck.
                                                            
                       JOSEPH
      (Running to the
       reverend.)
The Kirian blade!
                                                            
He looks around and finds the blade.
                                                            
                       REVEREND PLACKARD.
He won't let me. He's too
powerful.
                                                            
The reverend kicks the step ladder from under himself and
hangs from the ceiling. Joseph puts the step ladder back and
climbs up with the blade.
                                                            
                       JOSEPH
      (Raising the blade
       over his head.)
I have to Reverend Plackard.
                                                            
He lunges at the reverend's left eye with the blade. The
reverend kicks the step ladder out from under him and he
falls to the floor.

(A car pulls up.) Joseph jumps up and looks out the window.
He grabs the blade and leaves out the back door.
                                                            
                                         ROLL CREDITS.
                                                            
 
EXT. IN THE BACK OF A VAN. - DAY
                                                            
The van is black with a "Star of David" and the letters ATC
painted in gold on both side panels. DR.KIRUM LAMBERT(Late
thirties white male with a hint of gray. A distinguished but

2.

tired look) is sitting on a bench that runs the length of
the rear of the van. Across from him is DR.ELICIA
MANGUM(Late twenties white female. Her hair and clothes
undermine her natural beauty by design) She's reading a file
on her laptop. The first page reads, Charles Edward
Plackard: Case # 49592037 USA.
                                                            
                       KIRUM
      (Looking at
       Elicia.)
At first I read every word of
their files. I guess I felt
obligated. That was back when a
car could go over thirty five
miles per hour.
                                                            
                       ELICIA
What were those Ab's like?
                                                            
                       KIRUM
Type C's?
                                                            
She nods yes.
                                                            
                       KIRUM
Messy. My first 'Absolution' was a
head on collision. We called 'em
'Carakazees'. When there's both a
crime and a suicide it's
impossible to work with the local
authorities.
                                                            
Elicia starts reading again then stops abruptly.
                                                            
                       ELICIA
Doctor...
                                                            
He gives her a hard stare.
                                                            
                       ELICIA
      (A little nervous.)
Kirum. I don't think I'm ready to
pronounce an "Absolute".
                                                            
He pauses and thinks for a second.
                                                            
                       ELICIA
Kirum. The 'Absolute'.
                                                            
                       KIRUM
      (Snapping out of
       it.)
You were ready a week ago.
                                                            

3.

Now she's nervous.
                                                            
                       KIRUM
Welcome to my world Elicia.
                                                            
                                         SUICIDE SCENE.
                                                            
Their van pulls beside two police cars and parks. The light
mood of two officers, one of them OFFICER JOHN MAYHEW(Ealry
thirties black male) changes as they watch Kirum and Elicia
exit the van and walk past them and into Rev. Plackard's
home.
                                                            
DETECTIVE CHRISTIANSON(50's white male who walks with a
silver cane) approaches them as Elicia takes pictures of the
potential crime scene. There are ritualistic symbols, in
addition to the demon, painted on the walls and the
reverend's body looks like the centerpiece of it all.
                                                            
                       DETECTIVE CHRISTIANSON
      (With sarcasm.)
Sorry to interrupt your busy
schedules but we're in a hurry.
And keep my crime scene clean.
                                                            
                       ELICIA
      (Calm but firm.)
If you want us here faster vote to
have our governors removed. And
you don't have a crime scene until
we say.
                                                            
                       DETECTIVE CHRISTIANSON
      (Sly grin.)
Don't let me have to deal with
your tracks and prints while I try
to find out who murdered this man.
                                                            
                       ELICIA
We'll let you know when we're
finished.
                                                            
Kirum ignores their conversation and stares at the picture
of the demon and the letter 'M' next to it.
                                                            
                                         FLASHBACK TO AN
AIRPORT.
                                                            
Kirum is about to board a plane and sees a young girl with
that same demom tattooed on her neck and the name 'Milgatha'
written underneath.
                                                            

4.

                                         BACK TO THE SUICIDE
SCENE.
                                                            
                       DETECTIVE CHRISTIANSON
Everyone take a lunch break.
                                                            
Elicia approaches Kirum.
                                                            
                       ELICIA
Familiar?
                                                            
                       KIRUM
Maybe. Don't let this distract
you. Have you let anything in the
report or anything you see invade
your instinct?
                                                            
                       ELICIA
      (Looking at the
       ceiling.)
No.
                                                            
                       KIRUM
Record his readings.
                                                            
They place a ladder next to the man and she climbs up to
inspect the body.
                                                            
She examines the man's eyes with a an object similar to a
silver pen that emits a laser light. After holding the light
in his right eye for five seconds she reads an LED screen on
the side of the pen.
                                                            
                       ELICIA
Kirum this line's not flat it's
going crazy.
                                                            
                       KIRUM
Not possible. Maybe you're not
ready.
                                                            
                       ELICIA
I've been reading since I was
four. I'm telling you this
man's...
                                                            
Her leg slips and she has to grab the body to keep from
falling. Just as she gasps a sigh of relief she sees the
man's left eye staring at her and it blinks. She falls off
of the ladder and Kirum catches her. She's hyperventilating.
                                                            
                       KIRUM
Why'd you let go?
                                                            

5.

She tries to speak but she can't catch her breath.
                                                            
                       ELICIA
He. He. He.
                                                            
Kirum helps her to her feet.
                                                            
                       KIRUM
Calm down and tell me what
happened?
                                                            
                       ELICIA
He 'winked ' at me.
                                                            
He climbs, deliberately, up the ladder and takes another
reading.
                                                            
                       KIRUM
It's flat now. You're not to leave
my sight until this is over. Not
even for a second, do you hear?
                                                            
                       ELICIA
Until what's over?
                                                            
                       KIRUM
You have a job to do. Have you
made a decision?
                                                            
                       ELICIA
      (She looks at the
       body.)
I guess I have...
                                                            
                       KIRUM
Have you made a decision?
                                                            
                       ELICIA
Yes. This man took his own life.
                                                            
                       KIRUM
Call in the Cleaners.
                                                            
We see a large van, with the same Star of David on it's
side, and eight Cleaners, along with two heavily armed men,
emerge with a stretcher and various tools. Elicia watches as
they take the body down and put it in the back of the van
and into an incinerator. The house is restored to a normal
appearance and there's nothing left to suggest someone had
just died there.
                                                            
                                         LATER OUTSIDE THE
HOUSE.
                                                            

6.

She approaches Kirum who appears to be talking to himself
but he's talking to a miniature phone that's inside his
mouth.
                                                            
                       KIRUM
I'm sorry but something's come up.
                                                            
He pauses and listens as he turns away from an onlooking
Elicia.
                                                            
                       KIRUM
Miss you too but you don't need my
help. Between you and Charlotte
it'll all get done in time. Is
Charles still complaining?
                                                            
Another pause.
                                                            
                       KIRUM
He's been waiting a long time to
give away his only daughter. Gotta
go, I'll call you when I can.
Goodbye
                                                            
He uses a tiny remote to hang up and Elicia watches him put
it in his lab coat.
                                                            
                       ELICIA
      (Confused.)
Kirum where's the phone?
                                                            
                       KIRUM
      (Smiling.)
My right molar.
                                                            
                       ELICIA
What are you 007? Where's mine?
                                                            
                       KIRUM
I had it done in Japan two months
ago. It won't be in the States for
a while.
                                                            
                       ELICIA
You're like a big kid with your
gadgets.
                                                            
                       KIRUM
      (Staring behind
       her.)
The party's about to liven up.
                                                            

7.

She looks over her shoulder and sees the detective and two
squad cars pull up.
                                                            
                       KIRUM
Do you feel up to this?
                                                            
                       ELICIA
No but I'll handle it. I'm more
concerned about this wink thing.
What's that all about?
                                                            
Detective Christianson interrupts with a loud voice as he
walks towards them very fast.
                                                            
                       DETECTIVE CHRISTIANSON
You couldn't handle losing control
could you?
                                                            
                       ELICIA
I won't dignify that.
                                                            
                       DETECTIVE CHRISTIANSON
Did you even read my report? Why'd
you bother showing up? You
could've just phoned it in and
saved the tax payers lots of
money.
                                                            
                       ELICIA
If you'll calm down I'll try and
answer your questions; which is
more than I'm obligated to do.
                                                            
He takes a deep breath and closes his eyes for a few seconds
as the armed men make their presence more obvious.
                                                            
                       ELICIA
My decision was not and could not
be impacted by your report but I
read every word.
                                                            
He shakes his head.
                                                            
                       DETECTIVE CHRISTIANSON
You people amaze me. I realize
you're not trained in law
enforcement but any layman can
look at that report and deduce the
fact that Reverend Plackard
couldn't have does this alone.
                                                            

8.

                       ELICIA
That may be true but it doesn't
change the fact he took his own
life.
                                                            
                       DETECTIVE CHRISTIANSON
That makes no sense but it's not
even the point.
                                                            
                       ELICIA
What is your point detective? That
because the maid saw a boy running
away from the house this has to be
a murder?
                                                            
                       DETECTIVE CHRISTIANSON
My point is, ma'am, because you've
destroyed a crime scene this case
will never be solved. My point is
in a few minutes you're going to
hand me an urn with the ashes of a
man of God and I'll have to tell
his family that he and he alone
was responsible for his death. And
they, along with his congregation,
will have to live with the thought
that their spiritual leader and a
cornerstone of their faith lost
all hope and, out of the blue,
took his own life.
                                                            
                       ELICIA
I hate that's your job Detective.
                                                            
                       KIRUM
Why did the maid think the boy
came from inside the house?
                                                            
                       DETECTIVE CHRISTIANSON
Does it even matter? Don't answer
that. She thought someone looked
out the window when she pulled up.
Someone else put that stuff on the
walls and ceiling.
                                                            
A Cleaner walks up and hands Kirum an Urn. He hands it to
Elicia and she uses a bracelet to stamp Absolute B.E.M. on
the bottom of it. The detective walks up and takes it from
her.
                                                            
The detective feigns a grin and walks away. He turns back
around and asks Kirum.
                                                            

9.

                       DETECTIVE CHRISTIANSON
What exactly does ATC stand for?
                                                            
                       KIRUM
I guess that depends on who you're
asking. Some say it stands for
Accessory to Crime but officially
it's Absolute Technology
Corporation.
                                                            
                       DETECTIVE CHRISTIANSON
Just checking.
                                                            
Elicia rolls her eyes as she and Kirum walk back to the van.
                                                            
                       ELICIA
How long am I not suppose to be
out of your sight?
                                                            
 
INT. HOTEL ROOM - NIGHT
                                                            
Kirum sits in a chair and Elicia is in the bathroom. He's
holding an unlit cigar.

Switch to her face in the mirror and she winks at herself.
Hurriedly she walks out and we see her approach Kirum.
                                                            
                       ELICIA
You're practically married are you
planning on sleeping in here
tonight?
                                                            
                       KIRUM
      (Ignoring the
       question.)
Has anything strange happened
since this morning?
                                                            
                       ELICIA
I guess that means yes? There's a
perfectly good explanation for a
dead man winking at me. I just
don't know what it is.
                                                            
                       KIRUM
Has anything happened?
                                                            
                       ELICIA
Yes. I can't stop thinking about
something that happened in college
and just a minute ago I winked at
myself in the mirror.
                                                            

10.

Kirum sits with a blank stare on his face.
                                                            
                       ELICIA
I might have this rough exterior
for a girl but I can't even watch
a scary movie by myself so if you
know something then out with it?
                                                            
                       KIRUM
In training you learned that our
suicide rate is less than ten
percent of the international
average didn't you?
                                                            
She nods yes.
                                                            
                       KIRUM
What makes us so special?
                                                            
                       ELICIA
What aren't you telling me Kirum?
                                                            
                       KIRUM
You know how some people fear
hospitals?
                                                            
                       ELICIA
Sure. They think if you go to a
hospital you're going to get sick.
                                                            
                       KIRUM
Right. Well some people believe if
you're at an 'Absolution' scene
you might commit suicide.
                                                            
                       ELICIA
And what do you think?
                                                            
                       KIRUM
I'm still here aren't I? However
I've had several cases where the
victims were present at my
previous Absolution.
                                                            
                       ELICIA
It's bound to happen now that
suicides are so frequent.
                                                            

11.

                       KIRUM
Exactly. But back when I read the
files I found three victims had
told someone they were winked at
by the dead body. Now don't get
upset.
                                                            
                       ELICIA
Don't get upset! Why would that
upset me? Why didn't you report
this?
                                                            
                       KIRUM
I did. The first time it was
ignored and the second time I was
put on a month-leave due to mental
fatigue.
                                                            
                       ELICIA
Hey I'm the last person to want to
die and a wink's not going to
change that.
                                                            
                       KIRUM
One of them was a detective who
was investigating a suicide by
fire and the woman had no eyes
left. Fire's make for a tough
Absolution.
                                                            
                       ELICIA
Obviously she didn't wink at him.
                                                            
                       KIRUM
He said she did. I didn't see him
until he was brought back from
four hundred miles away. He'd
taken his life outside a small
town in Kansas. Lyon I think?
                                                            
                       ELICIA
You never got to visit the scene?
                                                            
                       KIRUM
No but it was suicide. He was
looking for a boy spotted by
firefighters at the previous
scene.
                                                            
She looks worried.
                                                            

12.

                       ELICIA
Are you saying the preacher may
not have killed himself?
                                                            
                       KIRUM
Never doubt your final decision.
But there is something suspicious
about this one.
                                                            
                       ELICIA
And you're also worried I've
caught some suicide bug?
                                                            
                       KIRUM
Of course not. This is just my MO
for getting new agents into bed.
                                                            
She smiles.
                                                            
                       ELICIA
I thought as much. What do you
think the reading meant on the
Pastor?
                                                            
                       KIRUM
I don't know any more than you
about that. I just take the
reading and send it in.
                                                            
                       ELICIA
Just my luck to get a reading my
first time. Do you think that has
anything to do with this?
                                                            
                       KIRUM
I really don't know.
                                                            
                       ELICIA
And they said I'd be working with
the best.
                                                            
Smiles.
                                                            
                       KIRUM
What made you want to do this?
                                                            
                       ELICIA
My parents divorced when I was
three and I never saw or heard
from my father until I graduated
from college. He sent me fifty
grand cash and an ap for ATC
med-school.
                                                            

13.

She falls back on her bed and covers her eyes with her
hands.
                                                            
                       ELICIA
So do we hang a curtain between
us?
                                                            
                       KIRUM
No. I don't sleep much anyway. You
get some rest.
                                                            
                       ELICIA
What about your 'Cleanser'?
                                                            
                       KIRUM
I'll get in a nap on the van in
the morning and I'll wear it then.
                                                            
She gets under the covers and Kirum notices her rubbing her
temples.
                                                            
                       ELICIA
I can't stop thinking about the
same thing over and over.
                                                            
                       KIRUM
I don't suppose you want to share
what that is?
                                                            
                       ELICIA
I don't know you that well.
                                                            
She notices the unlit cigar.
                                                            
                       ELICIA
It won't bother me if you want to
smoke that. My dad smoked gigars.
                                                            
                       KIRUM
Thanks but Helen asked me to quit
and this is my method.
                                                            
He picks up a game sleeve.
                                                            
                       KIRUM
I'm on the last level of Creation.
Sweet dreams.
                                                            
                       ELICIA
Ok. Have fun.
                                                            
He takes his remote out of his pocket and puts on a pair of
visors. Elicia puts on a silver headset and close her eyes.

INT. HOTEL ROOM HOURS LATER. - NIGHT
                                                            
There's the first hint of sunlight sneaking through a closed
curtain.
Kirum is heavy into his game and Elicia's dreaming.
                                                            
                                         FLASHBACK TO
SEPERATE HOTEL.
                                                            
Elicia and an older man are making love when a woman walks
in on them.
                                                            
                                         BACK TO HOTEL ROOM.
                                                            
Elicia wakes up and goes straight for her handgun. She
points it to her head and pulls the trigger but it just
clicks. Kirum hears it and they struggle over the gun.
                                                            
                       ELICIA
Let me go. Where's my clip?
                                                            
                       KIRUM
Calm down. I have it.
                                                            
She tries to run but he tackles her and after a scuffle he
ties her hands behind her back with a phone chord. She gets
in a fetal position and lays on the bed crying.
                                                            
                       KIRUM
I'll be right back.
                                                            
Kirum runs out of the room. Elicia struggles to get free.
There's blood on her wrists. After a few minutes she gets
her hands in front of her and tries to open the window. She
gets it open and looks down at the ground eight stories
below. She closes her eyes and falls forward but Kirum
catches her arm. He's holding on to her by the chord wrapped
around her wrists. She's bleeding as he pulls her back
inside. The driver runs into the room.
                                                            
                                         ATC VAN
                                                            
They put Elicia into the van.
                                                            
                       DRIVER
Sir the nearest safe-house is
eighty miles north.
                                                            
                       KIRUM
That'll take hours in this thing.
                                                            
Kirum is flustered and takes time to think.
                                                            

15.

                       KIRUM
Alright wait here while I get our
things. Keep an eye on her.
                                                            
Kirum approaches a bellhop and they go inside the hotel.
The driver punches in a code to open a console between the
front seats of the van. Inside is a phone and it dials
automatically.
                                                            
                       COMPUTER VOICE
Your location has been determined.
Help is on the way. Please remain
calm and don't move unless you
have to.
                                                            
As the driver listens a young girl LISA PARKER (nine years
old) approaches the van and opens the back door. Elicia
looks up and sees Lisa smile. She snaps a picture of Elicia
and then winks. Elicia passes out.
                                                            
Kirum walks up to the van and sees her limp body.
                                                            
                       KIRUM
What happened to her?
                                                            
The driver shrugs his shoulders.
                                                            
Kirum listens to the message that keeps repeating itself.
                                                            
                       KIRUM
Good job Robert.
                                                            
                       DRIVER
Just following protocol sir.
                                                            
Kirum uses bandages from the first aid kit to wrap around
her bleeding wrists and stares at faded scars that mimic her
wounds.
                                                            
                       KIRUM
      (Catching his
       breath.)
You'll be fine.
                                                            
 
INT. KIRUM'S APARTMENT - DAY
                                                            
Kirum wakes up and sees his Cleanser on the side of the bed.
                                                            
His fiance HELEN WAYNEBRIDGE (exceptionally attractive white
female in her early thirties) opens the shade and walks over
to the side of the bed. She picks up the Cleanser and nudges
Kirum awake. She shows him his Cleanser.
                                                            

16.

                       KIRUM
Good morning sunshine. I'm about
convinced it's just a placebo.
That's one question down and four
to go.
                                                            
                       HELEN
Did I say a word?
                                                            
                       KIRUM
Three more.
                                                            
                       HELEN
      (Playfully.)
I can't help it you fascinate me
and I always want to know what
you're thinking.
                                                            
                       KIRUM
You should learn to read my mind.
What am I thinking right now?
                                                            
He puts his arms around her waist and pulls her to him.
                                                            
                       HELEN
I have to go with mum to pick out
the cake. You gonna to take care
of their dead tree?
                                                            
                       KIRUM
I told you hard labor interferes
with my instinct.
                                                            
                       HELEN
Really. Let's see how being cut
off affects your instinct.
                                                            
                       KIRUM
Does your dad have a chain saw?
                                                            
She squeezes his face and gives him a soft kiss.
                                                            
                       HELEN
Yes but you should buy one. You
never know when it might come in
handy.
                                                            
                       KIRUM
What if we get one as a wedding
gift?
                                                            

17.

                       HELEN
Oops I forgot to register at John
Deere.
                                                            
                       KIRUM
No worries I'll handle it while
I'm there.
                                                            
                       KIRUM
And I thought you wouldn't help
with the wedding.
                                                            
She puts a purse over her shoulder and starts out the door.
                                                            
                       HELEN
Dad will try to do all the work
but he has two herniated discs and
it would kill him not to walk me
down the isle.
                                                            
She leaves and he picks up his Cleanser. A light blinks
"Urgent! Critical cleansing needed." He opens a drawer and
throws it in.
                                                            
 
EXT. IN-LAWS BACKYARD - DAY
                                                            
Kirum is making a final preparations to fall a very tall
tree when his phone rings. He reaches into his pocket then
answers.
                                                            
                       KIRUM
Hello.
                                                            
                       ELICIA
      (In a hurry.)
Kirum it's Elicia. There's no time
for greetings. The small town you
mentioned, don't say it, do you
remember?
                                                            
                       KIRUM
Yes.
                                                            
                       ELICIA
Meet me there tonight. Don't tell
anyone and don't leave a trail.
                                                            
                       KIRUM
Elicia I'm getting married
Sunday...
                                                            

18.

                       ELICIA
You've got to trust me. There's
more at stake here than you know.
There's only one bar and I'll be
waiting. Bye.
                                                            
                       KIRUM
Elicia wait. Hello.
                                                            
Helen and her mom CHARLOTTE WAYNEBRIDGE drive up and
approach Kirum.
                                                            
Charlotte waves at Kirum and looks around like she's looking
for someone.
                                                            
                       KIRUM
He's gone after some outdoor trash
bags.
                                                            
                       HELEN
So that's where your truck went.
                                                            
                       CHARLOTTE
It'll be dark soon.
                                                            
                       KIRUM
      (To Elicia.)
Can I have a word?
                                                            
Charlotte walks away.
                                                            
                       HELEN
You've been called on assignment?
                                                            
                       KIRUM
You can read my mind.
                                                            
                       HELEN
I was just telling mother you
might be called back to work.
                                                            
                       KIRUM
I have to leave now but I'll be
back Sunday.
                                                            
She looks at the tree still standing and suddenly looks
worried.
                                                            
                       KIRUM
I'll call a tree service.
                                                            

19.

                       HELEN
What about rehearsal?
                                                            
                       KIRUM
If I miss it we'll just have to
wing it.
                                                            
CHARLES WAYNEBRIDGE (Helen's father) comes from the front of
the house looking for something.
                                                            
                       HELEN
You lose something?
                                                            
                       CHARLES
I thought that boy walked back
here?
                                                            
                       HELEN
      (Shaking her head
       no.)
Kirum's been called to work and
we're going to have a tree service
come and cut down the tree.
                                                            
                       CHARLES
That's nonsense. I'll have it done
in an hour.
                                                            
He smiles and winks at Kirum who winks back. Charlotte walks
up with a cold bottled water and hands it to Kirum.
                                                            
                       CHARLOTTE
If you touch that saw I'm filing
for divorce.
                                                            
Charles takes her hand and gives her a kiss.
                                                            
                       KIRUM
Thanks. I need to clean up and
pack. I'll call.
                                                            
He kisses Helen and walks away.
                                                            
 
EXT. LYON KANSAS - NIGHT
                                                            
Kirum gets out of a Shuttle Taxi and walks into a bar.
                                                            
He sees an old man at the bar and some young people playing
darts. Elicia isn't there and he walks up to the bartender.
A handwritten sign says 'Happy Hour' 'Two for one'.
                                                            

20.

                       BARTENDER
Sorry pal but you just missed
happy hour.
                                                            
                       KIRUM
Figures. How 'bout a draft?
                                                            
Man at the bar looks at Kirum.
                                                            
                       MAN AT BAR
Sorry you missed happy hour son.
                                                            
Kirum holds his beer up for a toast and the old man obliges.
                                                            
                       KIRUM
Here's to another twenty three
hours of unhappiness.
                                                            
                       MAN AT BAR
      (Big toothless
       grin.)
Now I'll drink to that.
                                                            
Elicia walks in noticebly disturbed and hugs Kirum for
several seconds. The bartender looks at the old man who's
smiling.
                                                            
                       BARTENDER
So much for unhappiness.
                                                            
                       MAN AT BAR
I'll drink to that.
                                                            
She takes Kirum by the hand and they sit at a table in the
back.
                                                            
                       ELICIA
I thought you might not come.
                                                            
                       KIRUM
The last time I saw you you wanted
to die. Now start from the
beginning and tell me how I can
help.
                                                            
She has a distant look in her eyes.
                                                            
                       ELICIA
First of all thank you for saving
my life. Twice.
                                                            
He feigns a smile and waits for her to continue.
                                                            

21.

                       ELICIA
When I woke up I was in the
infirmary at the ATC headquarters.
There was a private duty nurse.
                                                            
Switch to Headquarters.
                                                            
 
INT. INFIRMARY AT ATC HDQRS - DAY
                                                            
Elicia, with bandages on her wrists, peaks out of her room
and sees her nurse napping. She slips past her and walks to
the medical records room. She pulls her file and reads
Beatrice Elicia Mangum M.D. Sub dermal lacerations right and
left wrists suffered during struggle. Anxiety attack
resulting from delayed allergic reaction to immunization
cocktail. Psychological evaluation pending.

She hears a noise and peaks out the door but sees nothing.
She pulls two more files and goes back to her room. She
places the files under her pillow and gets in bed. When she
pulls the sheet up to her neck she notices DR. RAYMOND E.
TODD (Late fifties white male) standing in her doorway.
                                                            
                       DR. TODD
      (Looking at her
       chart.)
Can't get comfortable?
                                                            
                       ELICIA
      (Trying to be
       nonchalant.)
No I can never get comfortable
under observation.
                                                            
                       DR. TODD
Observation? It's not that we just
want to take every precaution.
                                                            
He looks at her pillow and Elicia pushes her sheet down
revealing her chest.
                                                            
                       ELICIA
Is it warm in here to you?
                                                            
He walks over to the thermostat and lowers the temperature.
                                                            
                       ELICIA
So now what?
                                                            
                       DR. TODD
After an undetermined time of paid
leave you'll be placed with
            (MORE)

22.

                       DR. TODD (cont'd)
another trainer and on your way to
a wonderful career.
                                                            
                       ELICIA
Why can't I finish with Kirum?
                                                            
                       DR. TODD
He's training someone else.
                                                            
                       ELICIA
I see.
                                                            
                       DR. TODD
      (Trying to flirt.)
You fly out early so get some
rest. Here's my private number if
you need anything, and I do mean
anything, don't hesitate to call.
                                                            
                       ELICIA
Of course Dr. Todd.
                                                            
He walks out and she notices a corner of one of the files
sticking out.
                                                            
 
INT. OKLAHOMA CITY AIRPORT - DAY
                                                            
Elicia's getting her bags when a man bumps into her and
keeps on walking without an apology.
                                                            
                       ELICIA
Jerk.
                                                            
She carries her luggage out and her mother JANICE MANGUM
(Late fifties voluptuous and sultry) is waiting for her. She
gets in the car after putting her luggage in the trunk.
                                                            
                       JANICE
Sorry I'm late I had to take
Fathead to the vet.
                                                            
                       ELICIA
Hello Mother. What's wrong with
Fathead?
                                                            
                       JANICE
The Anderson's dog is in heat
again and I'm having him fixed.
                                                            
Elicia feels something in her pocket and pulls out an
envelope. She reads the note inside.
                                                            

23.

                       ELICIA
      (Opening the car
       door and getting
       out.)
I'll take a cab home.
                                                            
                       JANICE
Is everything alright?
                                                            
                       ELICIA
Everything's fine.
                                                            
                                         DUTY FREE SHOP.
                                                            
Elicia approaches a cashier.
                                                            
                       ELICIA
Do you have something for Elicia
Mangum?
                                                            
                       CASHIER
Your husband said give you this..
                                                            
She takes a locker key that says 1272 and she finds the
locker. In it is an unlocked lock-box containing a picture,
a note and a car key with a parking tag. She looks at the
picture of herself in the van.
                                                            
                                         FLASHBACK TO ATC
VAN.
                                                            
A little girl takes a picture of Elicia and winks at her.
                                                            
                                         OKLAHOMA CITY
AIRPORT.
                                                            
She reads the note: Hello Dr. Mangum, If you'd like to meet
the girl take this car to 5167 Carmichael in Lyon, Ks. I'll
meet you there at eight PM.
                                                            
 
INT. CAR - NIGHT
                                                            
Elicia arrives at the address and parks in front of an
average home in a low rent neighborhood. Detective
Christianson walks out and they approach each other.
                                                            
                       DETECTIVE CHRISTIANSON
Surprized?
                                                            
                       ELICIA
A little.
                                                            

24.

                       DETECTIVE CHRISTIANSON
Thought you might like to know who
the girl was that took your
picture.
                                                            
                       ELICIA
How'd you know about that?
                                                            
                       DETECTIVE CHRISTIANSON
I'll show you.
                                                            
They get into his car.

                       DETECTIVE CHRISTIANSON
After Reverend Plackard died an
officer spotted a kid from his
home town near the bus station and
stopped to chat with him. The kid
didn't want to answer any
questions so we had the maid id
him as the boy who ran.
                                                            
                       ELICIA
Detective I hope you haven't
brought me out here because you
still think that man was murdered?
                                                            
                       DETECTIVE CHRISTIANSON
No. But the Rev didn't put that
stuff on his walls and now I know
who did. What I still don't know
is why he did it and what he saw.
                                                            
                       ELICIA
He hasn't told you?
                                                            
                       DETECTIVE CHRISTIANSON
Officer Mayhew convinced me to let
the boy go. I did and he led us
where we're going.
                                                            
                       ELICIA
Where is that?
                                                            
                       DETECTIVE CHRISTIANSON
Officer Mayhew grew up hearing
rumors all his life about the
"Catchum Conservatory".
                                                            
                       ELICIA
A music school?
                                                            

25.

                       DETECTIVE CHRISTIANSON
It was until October of 1960 after
it's founder Anglund Catchum took
his own life in front of many of
the students. The facility and
about five hundred acres was
bought at auction by Anglund's
twin brother Zephyr Catchum.
                                                            
                       ELICIA
Where's he now?
                                                            
                       DETECTIVE CHRISTIANSON
Prison.
                                                            
His cell rings.
                                                            
                       DETECTIVE CHRISTIANSON
Hello. Is she awake? Good. See you
in a minute.
                                                            
                       ELICIA
What rumors?
                                                            
                       DETECTIVE CHRISTIANSON
People here believe missing
children wind up at Catchum to be
used as some kind of spiritual
transports called 'Innocents'.
                                                            
                       ELICIA
Innocents?
                                                            
With a slightly red face he shakes his head yes.
                                                            
                       ELICIA
By spiritual you mean from the
spirit world?
                                                            
He looks at her and scratches his head. He has a half grin
half frown.
                                                            
                       DETECTIVE CHRISTIANSON
It's not my legend. You said you
wanted to know.
                                                            
                       ELICIA
Please tell me we're not off to
see the Wizard?
                                                            
They share a laugh.
                                                            

26.

                       DETECTIVE CHRISTIANSON
As far as I know we're still in
Kansas.
                                                            
                       ELICIA
Let me guess. The boy is an
Innocent?
                                                            
                       DETECTIVE CHRISTIANSON
You are a sharp one but he's not
anything anymore. We're here.
                                                            
                                         CRANDLE HOUSE
                                                            
They pull up to a run down home along-side a county road.
Officer John Mayhew is there in street clothes.
                                                            
                       DETECTIVE CHRISTIANSON
Elicia this is John Mayhew.
                                                            
                       ELICIA
You look different out of uniform.
                                                            
                       OFFICER MAYHEW
Yes ma'am. If the Sheriff here
thought I was practicing law in
his county he'd put me behind
bars.
                                                            
                       DETECTIVE CHRISTIANSON
Have you been down?
                                                            
                       OFFICER MAYHEW
No but Miss Crandle says we can
look all we want.
                                                            
                       DETECTIVE CHRISTIANSON
Get the boy's remains.
                                                            
Mayhew nods and walks away. Christianson and Elicia walk
down into a dark storm shelter with a flashlight. On the
walls are the same kinds of drawings that were on the
Reverend's wall. Christianson shines the light on several
pictures of two demons named Milgatha and Gravhalla. He
holds the light on one in particular of them surrounded by
stars fighting. Then he shines the light on a drawing of
Elicia.
                                                            
                       DETECTIVE CHRISTIANSON
The boy's name was Joseph Crandle.
He took his life shortly after he
returned.
                                                            

27.

                       ELICIA
He didn't do it here did he?
                                                            
                       DETECTIVE CHRISTIANSON
Down at the Quarry. And because of
Miss Crandle's disdain for the
local authorities they haven't
been allowed down here.
                                                            
Officer Mayhew arrives with an urn and hands it to Elicia.
She checks the bottom and sees "Absolute R.E.T." stamped on
it.
                                                            
                       ELICIA
This was ruled a suicide. Why
would they want to investigate?
                                                            
                       OFFICER MAYHEW
Henry Glaze is the sheriff. He
runs this county and likes to know
everything that goes on around
here.
                                                            
                       DETECTIVE CHRISTIANSON
There might be another reason.
                                                            
He reaches in his coat pocket and pulls out an object
wrapped in cloth and hands it to Elicia. She opens it and
looks at a Kirian blade. She compares it to knife pictures
on the wall.
                                                            
                       ELICIA
What does the sheriff want with
this?
                                                            
                       OFFICER MAYHEW
We're still trying to determine
that.
                                                            
                       DETECTIVE CHRISTIANSON
We've found bus tickets to about a
hundred different cities. Recently
he had a companion; the girl who
took your picture.
                                                            
                       ELICIA
How do you know that?
                                                            
                       DETECTIVE CHRISTIANSON
She told us. Her name is Lisa.
                                                            
                       ELICIA
I want to see her.
                                                            
 

28.

EXT. CABIN IN THE WOODS - NIGHT
                                                            
Elicia and James get out of the car and see a lethargic
SAMANTHA PARKER (late twenties white female with a permanent
gloomy countenance) sitting on a porch swing in front of a
very dark cabin. She doesn't bother getting up.
                                                            
                       SAMANTHA
On the swing down by the pond.
                                                            
                       ELICIA
I'd like to talk to Lisa alone.
                                                            
                       DETECTIVE CHRISTIANSON
It took us two days to get
anything out of her.
                                                            
Elicia barely acknowledges him.
                                                            
                       DETECTIVE CHRISTIANSON
      (Pointing.)
It's about a hundred yards that
way. Here's a flashlight.
                                                            
The flashlight goes out as Elicia walks up to Lisa who is
sitting on a tire swing but not swinging.
                                                            
                       ELICIA
Lisa. I'm Elicia. What are you
doing in the dark? Did you take my
picture?
                                                            
She smiles but doesn't answer.
                                                            
                       ELICIA
Lisa it's very important that I
know what you were doing there?
                                                            
Still smiling but nothing.
                                                            
                       ELICIA
Were you there to heal me? Because
that's what you did. Remember?
                                                            
                       LISA
      (Very innocent.)
I took him away.
                                                            
                       ELICIA
That's right you took something
away. Can I know what that was?
                                                            

29.

                       LISA
Not a what. A who.
                                                            
                       ELICIA
      (Confused. Gets
       close.)
Alright who did you take away?
                                                            
                       LISA
I can't say his name.
                                                            
Elicia gets on her knees and looks straight into Lisa's
eyes.
                                                            
                       ELICIA
Can you tell me where he is now?
                                                            
Lisa smiles and suddenly her eyes enlarge and start to glow.
In a low demon voice she says.
                                                            
                       LISA
Right here Elicia.
                                                            
Elicia screams and falls backwards.
                                                            
                       LISA
      (Demon voice.)
I miss you. Do you miss me?
                                                            
James and Samantha come running up. He goes to Elicia and
Samantha goes to Lisa.
                                                            
                       SAMANTHA
What happened?
                                                            
Lisa's eyes and voice are back to normal.
                                                            
                       LISA
I'm hungry.
                                                            
                       DETECTIVE CHRISTIANSON
      (Helping her up.)
Why'd you scream?
                                                            
                       ELICIA
I need to make a phone call.
                                                            
 
INT. BACK TO BAR - NIGHT
                                                            
Kirum's running both hands through his hair and looking down
at the table.
                                                            

30.

                       ELICIA
James told me some other strange
things.
                                                            
Kirum stares at her and doesn't speak.
                                                            
                       ELICIA
Reverend Plackard's suicide was
staged. The boy was there to
destroy a demon.
                                                            
He rolls his eyes up and she pauses.
                                                            
                       ELICIA
Plackard was dieing so he let a
spirit possess him so he could be
destroyed. That's what the cross
knife was for.
                                                            
He takes her hands in his.
                                                            
                       KIRUM
I see where this is going. I know
you've been through a lot...
                                                            
                       ELICIA
A lot? You didn't see or hear what
I did from that little girl Kirum.
And that stuff about a bad
reaction to shots is a bunch of
horse crap.
                                                            
                       KIRUM
Are you saying Raymond Todd, a
former U.S. senator, has something
to do with this?
                                                            
                       ELICIA
All of the Administrative Generals
do. Who else has more to gain by
rampant suicides?
                                                            
                       KIRUM
      (Shaking his head
       no.)
I can't get mixed up in some
conspiracy theory about our
company using children to
transport demons to people marked
for suicide.
                                                            

31.

                       ELICIA
Do you know why they're called
'Innocents' Kirum?
                                                            
He starts to get up but she grabs his arm and pulls him
down.
                                                            
                       ELICIA
Because they don't have enough
guilt for the demons to attack. I
had an affair with a married man
and it tore his family apart. I
couldn't stand the thought of
living with that sin. That's why
happy people suddenly take their
own lives.
                                                            
He walks out of the bar and she follows him.
                                                            
                                         OUTSIDE OF THE BAR.
                                                            
                       KIRUM
You need more rest Elicia.
                                                            
She walks up to him but he backs away.
                                                            
                       ELICIA
I'm so scared right now I can
hardly breathe. My paranoia is
making me delusional and I'm
asking for your help.
                                                            
He paces then walks up to her. He looks her in the eyes but
she looks away.
                                                            
                       KIRUM
I've waited a long time to find
Helen and I can't screw it up. The
best that could come out of this
is I lose my career and the worst
is unimaginable.
                                                            
She's crying and turns away from him. After a minute he
walks up to her and they hug.
                                                            
                       ELICIA
I can't run from this.
                                                            
                       KIRUM
You're not in your right mind.
Let's drive to your mother's and
I'll catch the first flight home
tomorrow.
                                                            

32.

                       ELICIA
I have too many unanswered
questions.
                                                            
                       KIRUM
Do you even have a plan?
                                                            
She pulls a digital recorder out of one pocket and a heavy
receiver out of the other.
                                                            
                       ELICIA
If I'm going to report this I'm
going to need something more
substantial than a crazy story. If
something happens at least you'll
have it on disc.
                                                            
He acts like it's really heavy.
                                                            
                       KIRUM
'Me' use this antiquated receiver?
                                                            
She smiles.
                                                            
                       ELICIA
It's all I could find.
                                                            
He lifts her chin up but she looks past him.
                                                            
                       KIRUM
Be careful.
                                                            
She nods.
                                                            
 
EXT. IN-LAWS BACKYARD EARLY AFTERNOON. - DAY
                                                            
Kirum pulls up in his truck and runs inside. He sees Helen
holding Charlotte who is hysterical. Helen sees him and runs
up to him.
                                                            
                       HELEN
      (Sobbing.)
They said they couldn't cut him
out until the Ab's made a
decision. Please get that tree off
my father.
                                                            
                       KIRUM
There's an agent here now?
                                                            
                       HELEN
Yes.
                                                            

33.

                       KIRUM
Stay with Charlotte and I'll be
right back.
                                                            
                       HELEN
It's aweful Kirum.
                                                            
He hugs her tight and kisses her the top of her head.
                                                            
Kirum walks up on a man in a black lab-coat who is reading
the eyes of Charles Waynebridge. Charles is on his back and
the tree has fallen down the center of him so his legs and
arms are sticking out like he straddled the tree when it
fell.
                                                            
The agent glances up but doesn't acknowledge Kirum. He picks
up a clipboard and makes a note. Kirum walks closer and
stares up at SENIOR AGENT MAULIN PEI (Nearly seven foot tall
Asian male) as he stands up and looks back at him.
                                                            
                       AGENT PEI
You need to leave.
                                                            
                       KIRUM
I'm an agent.
                                                            
                       AGENT PEI
I know. Now leave.
                                                            
The man signals for the team to come in and the clean up
begins. Kirum is distraught. He watches in a daze. He
watches the Sr. Agent take out a remote just like his and
start talking to somebody. The agent's clipboard is sitting
on a table and Kirum walks by slow enough to get a peak. He
notices two things, Flat-line and "Wrong Man".
                                                            
Inside the house Helen is washing her face. Kirum walks up
to her.
                                                            
                       HELEN
I hear the chainsaws. Thank you.
                                                            
                       KIRUM
Helen do you remember yesterday
when your father said something
about a boy?
                                                            
                       HELEN
Yes.
                                                            
                       KIRUM
When you found him did either of
you look into his eyes?
                                                            

34.

                       HELEN
No. I don't think... No! What's
wrong?
                                                            
                       KIRUM
Something horrible's about to
happen. I wish I could stop it but
I can't.
                                                            
                       HELEN
What could be worse?
                                                            
                       KIRUM
They're going to cremate him.
                                                            
                       HELEN
Oh my God. No! He'd never do that.
Not now. Not ever. It's a mistake.
Tell them it's a mistake Kirum.
                                                            
Kirum has a blank stare and she tries to run out to her
father but he grabs her. She hits his chest with her fists
and screams.
                                                            
                       HELEN
What kind of animals are you?
                                                            
She sits down and cries and Kirum tries to hold her but she
won't let him.
                                                            
 
INT. MAYHEW'S DECEASED MOTHER'S HOUSE. - DAY
                                                            
Karen and Mayhew are in the front room talking. The camera
starts in the back room. There are pictures of the Mayhew
family along the hallway and into the front room. Pictures
of John and his sister when they were young but none of her
after that. Their voices are barely audible then get loud
enough to understand.
                                                            
                       ELICIA
How old was she?
                                                            
                       OFFICER MAYHEW
She disappeared three days before
her tenth birthday.
                                                            
                       ELICIA
And you believed she was at
Catchum?
                                                            
                       OFFICER MAYHEW
I knew she was there.
                                                            

35.

The front door opens and Detective Christianson walks in.
                                                            
                       DETECTIVE CHRISTIANSON
Lisa's missing.
                                                            
 
INT. KIRUM'S APARTMENT - DAY
                                                            
Kirum is making a call and the phone rings several times
until voice mail picks up. He doesn't leave a message. He
sits in a leather chair and rolls a cigar between his thumb
and index finger.
                                                            
His phone rings.
                                                            
                       HELEN
Hey it's me.
                                                            
                       KIRUM
Helen. What'd the priest say?
                                                            
                       HELEN
His hands are tied.
                                                            
She cries.
                                                            
He picks up the receiver Elicia gave him and stares at it.
                                                            
                       KIRUM
I'll do my best to get the
Absolution reversed. Can you see
me off in the morning?
                                                            
                       HELEN
I'll be there. Bye.
                                                            
                       KIRUM
      (As she hangs up.)
Bye.
                                                            
 
INT. MAYHEW'S CAR ON A GRAVEL ROAD. - DAY
                                                            
Karen and Mayhew pull over and stop.
                                                            
                       OFFICER MAYHEW
I'm sorry I can't go with you.
                                                            
                       ELICIA
I understand it's not your
jurisdiction.
                                                            

36.

                       OFFICER MAYHEW
Can you do it?
                                                            
                       ELICIA
Sure.
                                                            
                       OFFICER MAYHEW
Don't take any chances and I'll be
here when you get back.
                                                            
She takes a deep breath and gets out of the car. She looks
at the setting Sun and starts walking towards a twenty foot
high mesh fence.
                                                            
                                         MESH FENCE.
                                                            
She uses a knife to cut a hole just big enough to squeeze
through. When she gets on the other side she turns the
camera on and points it at herself.
                                                            
                       ELICIA
Kirum I'm inside the Catchum
compound. No matter what happens
I'm going to leave the camera on.
                                                            
She turns the camera around and looks up an incline. She
starts into the woods and up the small hill.
                                                            
 
INT. KIRUM'S HOTEL ROOM. - NIGHT
                                                            
A letter head says " ATC Hotel".
                                                            
Kirum's on top of the covers of a king-size bed and holds an
unlit cigar.
                                                            
                                         FLASHBACK TO
AIRPORT.
                                                            
                       KIRUM
I can do anything as long as I
know we'll be together when it's
over.
                                                            
                       HELEN
Don't ask me to promise anything.
I can't see beyond tomorrow right
now much less a lifetime.
                                                            
                       KIRUM
I love you.
                                                            
She starts to cry.
                                                            

37.

                       HELEN
You're flight's about to leave.
                                                            
                                         HOTEL ROOM.
                                                            
He takes the receiver out of his bag and hooks it up to his
laptop. It's fuzzy at first. There's a fire in the distance.
                                                            
                                         CATCHUM FIELD
                                                            
                       ELICIA
I can see Lisa but I think I'm too
far away.
                                                            
                                         HOTEL ROOM.
                                                            
Kirum watches the screen as she crawls.
                                                            
                       KIRUM
I hope you're not where I think
you are?
                                                            
From the computer speakers comes Elicia's voice.
                                                            
                       ELICIA
That's Lisa. I can't tell what
they're doing to her?
                                                            
                                         CATCHUM FIELD
                                                            
Elicia focuses the camera on Lisa's face. Several people in
hooded robes watch as a hooded man ABRAHIN. (Late fifties
white male with no hair anywhere) stands over Lisa. She
appears to be hypnotized.
                                                            
                       ELICIA
Oh no. Please no.
                                                            
Abrahin turns and looks in Elicia's direction. She takes a
deep breath and holds it. Large eyes light up from under the
hood and he points to Elicia.
                                                            
The camera doesn't move and we hear Kirum's voice.
                                                            
                                         HOTEL ROOM.
                                                            
                       KIRUM
Run! Run!
                                                            
                       LISA
      (Over the computer
       speakers.)
Elicia. Come back Elicia.
                                                            

38.

                                         CATCHUM FIELD
                                                            
Elicia is running from SHERIFF GLAZE. (Heavy-set white male
in his late fifties) She leaves the camera on but doesn't
try to point it as she runs.
                                                            
                       ELICIA
I'm almost to the fence.
                                                            
She's at the wrong spot.
                                                            
                       ELICIA
Oh no. Where's the hole? Where's
the hole?
                                                            
She looks along the bottom of the fence.
                                                            
There are voices in the background getting louder.
                                                            
                       ELICIA
The knife?
                                                            
The sheriff is closing in. She runs along the fence and
finds the hole. She starts under the fence but he grabs her
arm.
                                                            
                       SHERIFF GLAZE
Oh no you don't. I've gocha now.
                                                            
She smashes the camera into his forehead and it falls to the
ground. Elicia runs to the car. The Sheriff tries to fit
through the fence but gets stuck.
                                                            
                       SHERIFF GLAZE
      (Yelling for help.)
I'm stuck.
                                                            
                                         HOTEL ROOM.
                                                            
Kirum washes his face in the bathroom. He remembers
something and goes back to the computer. When Elicia focuses
in on Lisa he sees the name on the old school house. Anglund
E. Chathum.
                                                            
                       KIRUM
      (To himself.)
You know what to do.
                                                            
 
INT. CABIN IN THE WOODS - NIGHT
                                                            
Elicia's sits in front of a TV but doesn't know it's even

39.

on. She's in shock. A lethargic Samantha's on a couch next
to her. Officer Mayhew's in the background.

Elicia snaps out of it when she hears something. She looks
out the window and sees several cars approaching.
                                                            
                       ELICIA
Oh God.
                                                            
Mayhew goes to the window.
                                                            
                       OFFICER MAYHEW
      (Grin.)
Here comes the Cavalry.
                                                            
He walks outside and greets a half-dozen men who are
strapping on handguns and loading shotguns.

                                                            
                       OFFICER MAYHEW
Elicia come with me a sec.
                                                            
They walk away from the house in the direction of the swing.
                                                            
                                         SWING.
                                                            
                       OFFICER MAYHEW
We're going after Lisa.
                                                            
                       ELICIA
Do you need an army for that?
                                                            
                       OFFICER MAYHEW
Abrahin's very powerful.
                                                            
                       ELICIA
I'm coming with you.
                                                            
                       OFFICER MAYHEW
No. Stay here with Samantha. Don't
leave until we get back.
                                                            
                       ELICIA
Don't let anything happen to her.
                                                            
He smiles at her and 'winks'. She looks at him questioningly
and he walks away.
                                                            
 
INT. ATC HEADQUARTERS. MAIN ASSEMBLY ROOM. - DAY
                                                            

40.

KIRUM SITS IN A CHAIR INSIDE A SEMI-CIRCLE TABLE.
                                                            
Dr. Todd is talking to the other nine Admin. Generals who
are sitting slightly higher than Kirum. Kirum glances down
at a silver case on his desk. It looks like a cigar case but
there's a tiny green light on.
                                                            
                       DR. TODD
Dr. Lambert is there anything on
this disk that gives credibility
to Dr. Mangum's outrageous claims?
                                                            
                       KIRUM
Obviously she's still suffering
ill affects and needs immediate
psychiatric help.
                                                            
                       DR. TODD
Is there anything more you'd like
to address to this panel?
                                                            
                       KIRUM
There's the matter regarding the
death of Mr. Charles Waynebridge.
                                                            
                       ADMIN. GENERAL ONE.
Dr. Lambert we can't let personal
motives taint a perfect record.
We're all very sorry for your loss
but an 'Absolution' has been made.
                                                            
                       KIRUM
Of course but there is
precedence...
                                                            
                       DR. TODD
      (Interrupting
       Kirum.)
Is there anything else 'Doctor'
Lambert?
                                                            
Kirum matches Dr. Todd's heavy stare.
                                                            
                       KIRUM
Well I do have one last question.
                                                            
                       ADMIN. GENERAL TWO.
Yes.
                                                            
                       KIRUM
What is Andre Chathum's role in
the ATC?
                                                            

41.

Attention is heightened and there's some mumbling until Todd
clears his throat.
                                                            
                       DR. TODD
Nothing more than any other
investor. Why do you ask?
                                                            
                       KIRUM
Just curious. Thank you all.
                                                            
                                         ATC LOBBY.
                                                            
Kirum walks past the guard desk and sees the guard cover his
mouth piece. Kirum speeds up.
                                                            
                       GUARD TWO.
Doctor Lambert.
                                                            
Kirum runs out the door and finds a cab. He sees two guards
come running after him and jumps in the cab.
                                                            
                                         CAB.
                                                            
                       KIRUM
There's a hundred in it if you can
get me away from those guys.
                                                            
The driver buckles up and puts on some shades.
                                                            
                       CAB DRIVER
Today is your lucky day.
                                                            
                       KIRUM
You've removed your governor?
                                                            
                       CAB DRIVER
No but I but I have over-sized
rims.
                                                            
                       KIRUM
What does that get you?
                                                            
                       CAB DRIVER
      (Adjusting his
       rear-view mirror.)
One mayyyyybe two miles an hour.
                                                            
                       KIRUM
      (To himself.)
I'm one lucky bastard.
                                                            
Kirum looks back and sees a security vehicle closing. A

42.

slow-paced chase takes place. Kirum's anxiety and
frustration peaks so he tosses a hundred at the driver and
jumps out.
                                                            
                                         SIDEWALK.
                                                            
The guards follow and Kirum runs as far as he can then
collapses on the sidewalk holding his side.
                                                            
                       GUARD TWO.
Station one we have the doctor at
5157 Central.
                                                            
                       GUARD ONE.
I'm right behind you.
                                                            
Kirum sits and catches his breath. After a minute he looks
at the guards.
                                                            
                       KIRUM
You guys must work out?
                                                            
Guard one approaches Kirum and hands him a broken camera.
                                                            
                       GUARD ONE.
You forgot your cigars.
                                                            
The guards walk away and Kirum looks at the smashed camera.
                                                            
 
INT. CABIN - DAY
                                                            
Samantha and Elicia are anxious and Samantha's pacing.
                                                            
                       SAMANTHA
I'm not waiting any longer.
                                                            
                       ELICIA
I don't think I can go back there.
                                                            
                       SAMANTHA
Lisa's in trouble I know it.
                                                            
                       ELICIA
Let's go.
                                                            
 
INT. KIRUM'S HOTEL ROOM. - DAY
                                                            
Kirum removes the memory from the broken camera and places
it inside a module. He watches files upload onto his
computer and locates the file he wants.
                                                            
                                         COMPUTER MONITOR.
                                                            

43.

                       ADMIN. GENERAL ONE.
Maybe you should lay low until the
Henderson Amendment passes Mr.
Chathum.
                                                            
                       MR. CHATHUM
      (From overhead
       speakers.)
The time for hiding has come and
gone.
                                                            
                       DR. TODD
What do we do about Dr. Lambert?
                                                            
                       MR. CHATHUM
I'll...
                                                            
The file is too corrupted to see any more. Kirum does an
Internet search for 'Henderson Amendment'.
                                                            
                                         HOTEL ROOM.
                                                            
Kirum reads while he makes a call.
                                                            
                       DRIVER
Hello.
                                                            
                       KIRUM
Robert it's Kirum.
                                                            
                       DRIVER
Are we finally going back to work?
                                                            
                       KIRUM
Sort of. In fact that's why I'm
calling. Where was it you said you
worked before?
                                                            
                       DRIVER
Andre Chathum's mansion.
                                                            
                       KIRUM
Isn't that outside DC?
                                                            
                       DRIVER
It's ten miles east of DC at 1100
Wilmington Ln.
                                                            
                       KIRUM
Thanks Robert you've been a big
help.
                                                            

44.

He neatly folds a hand-written letter and puts it in a nice
envelope. He writes 'Dear Helen' on the outside and puts a
stamp on it. He puts his jacket on and walks out with the
letter.
                                                            
 
EXT. CATCHUM FIELD - DAY
                                                            
Elicia and Samantha are near the spot where Elicia watched
the ritual.
                                                            
                       SAMANTHA
I don't see a soul.
                                                            
Elicia sees Anglund E. Chathum on the side of the school
building.
                                                            
                       ELICIA
I thought it was Catchum?
                                                            
                       SAMANTHA
      (Ignoring Elicia's
       question.)
It'll be dark soon.
                                                            
                       ELICIA
You're right.
                                                            
They walk up to the old schoolhouse and sneak around to the
front of the building. The door is unlocked and they walk in
very slowly. After peeking into a few rooms they hear a
voice and jump.
                                                            
                                         SCHOOLHOUSE.
                                                            
                       ABRAHIN
Hello Elicia and Samantha.
                                                            
                       SAMANTHA
Where's Lisa?
                                                            
                       ABRAHIN
Ask Christianson he took her.
                                                            
                       ELICIA
Great let's go.
                                                            
                       ABRAHIN
How well do you know him Elicia?
                                                            
                       ELICIA
Well enough to know I don't need
to be talking to you.
                                                            

45.

The door opens at the end of the hallway and the sheriff and
one of his deputies walks in.
                                                            
                       SHERIFF GLAZE
We meet again. Hello Samantha.
                                                            
Samantha almost smiles.
                                                            
Elicia stares at Samantha who holds her head down.
                                                            
                       ELICIA
What do you want?
                                                            
                       ABRAHIN
The question is what does he want
with you?
                                                            
                       ELICIA
Who?
                                                            
                       ABRAHIN
Do you know why these children are
here?
                                                            
                       ELICIA
You keep them here for your sick
rituals.
                                                            
                       ABRAHIN
They come and go as they please.
                                                            
She looks at Samantha who confirms what Abrahin said.
                                                            
                       SHERIFF GLAZE
Mayhew and Christianson work for
Andre Chathum. They came here for
the Kirian Blade and they took
Lisa so they could protect
Milgatha.
                                                            
                       ELICIA
Andre Chathum? That's not
possible.
                                                            
                       ABRAHIN
It's possible. He's the son of my
uncle Zephyr Chathum.
                                                            
                       ELICIA
Your father killed himself?
                                                            

46.

                       ABRAHIN
He was forced to kill himself
because he wouldn't let his
brother use the children.
                                                            
                       ELICIA
Now you're doing it.
                                                            
                       ABRAHIN
The 'Innocents' take the spirits
away.
                                                            
She pauses to think.
                                                            
                       ELICIA
Lisa took one out of me.
                                                            
Abrahin smiles.
                                                            
                       ELICIA
Then how are they passed on?
                                                            
                       SAMANTHA
ATC agents.
                                                            
                       ELICIA
What?
                                                            
                       ABRAHIN
They're called 'Carriers' because
they can pass the spirits on
without being affected.
                                                            
                       ELICIA
I was affected. I wanted to die.
                                                            
                       SHERIFF GLAZE
That spirit was meant for Kirum
Lambert.
                                                            
                       ELICIA
You're saying Kirum's a 'Carrier'?
                                                            
Abrahin nods yes.
                                                            
                       ELICIA
How can something like this be
kept secret? Why don't you report
this sheriff?
                                                            
                       SHERIFF GLAZE
I'm just a small town sheriff.
When I first took office I had a
            (MORE)

47.

                       SHERIFF GLAZE (cont'd)
wife and two kids. Now I have one
child. We're dealing with a man
who shows no mercy and has
unlimited resources. Remember the
boy Joseph Crandle?
                                                            
                       ELICIA
Yes I've been to his grandmother's
house?
                                                            
                       SHERIFF GLAZE
We know. She's dead now. John
Mayhew stabbed her in the eye with
a Kirian blade.
                                                            
                       ELICIA
Why?
                                                            
                       SHERIFF GLAZE
If a 'Carrier' dies by the blade
the spirit inside dies with them.
                                                            
                       ELICIA
This is too much.
                                                            
                       ABRAHIN
Walk with me Elicia.
                                                            
 
INT. SECURITY DESK AT ATC HEADQUARTERS. - NIGHT
                                                            
Kirum stands at the desk while the guard listens on his
headset.
                                                            
                       GUARD FOUR
He'll see you.
                                                            
                                         FOURTH LEVEL.
                                                            
On the fourth level he sees one door and goes inside. Dr.
Todd is sitting at a desk overlooking the meeting hall where
they were earlier.
                                                            
                       DR. TODD
This is unexpected Dr. Lambert.
                                                            
                       KIRUM
What's a 'Cleanser' for?
                                                            
                       DR. TODD
A Cleanser is an integral part of
an agent's existence. Dealing with
death and having to make such
            (MORE)

48.

                       DR. TODD (cont'd)
important decisions on a daily
basis causes a great deal of
stress and the purpose of the
'Cleanser' is to alleviate some of
that stress.
                                                            
                       KIRUM
I see. And would you say that it
works?
                                                            
                       DR. TODD
Is there a point to this doctor?
                                                            
                       KIRUM
Does the 'Cleanser' work?
                                                            
                       DR. TODD
If you studied your literature
you'd be aware that our agent's
suicide rate is less than one
tenth of the International
average.
                                                            
                       KIRUM
Why doesn't everyone have one?
                                                            
                       DR. TODD
I beg your pardon?
                                                            
                       KIRUM
If it reduces the risk of suicide?
                                                            
                       DR. TODD
It isn't that simple. There are
other factors involved in the
reduced suicide rate..
                                                            
Kirum waits for an elaboration.
                                                            
                       DR. TODD
Such as higher pay and less
stress.
                                                            
                       KIRUM
But you just said our jobs are
very stressful. Which is it? Are
we stressed? Are we not stressed?
                                                            
                       DR. TODD
Well there are other purposes for
the Cleanser. It's used as...
                                                            
He catches himself and stops speaking.
                                                            

49.

                       KIRUM
As? Were you about to say as a
controller? A manipulator? A way
for ATC to make sure we don't
screw up it's contract by missing
an Absolute?
                                                            
                       DR. TODD
This conversation is over.
                                                            
                       KIRUM
Am I an accessory or not?
                                                            
Dr. Todd tries to walk past Kirum but he stops him from
leaving.
                                                            
                       KIRUM
Your wealth is paid for with
millions of lives and I want to
know my role?
                                                            
                       DR. TODD
You've just committed career
suicide and as you well know you
don't get a third strike.
                                                            
                       KIRUM
Take away a man's family and his
job and there's nothing left. Your
threats don't work any more.
                                                            
                       DR. TODD
      (Very angry.)
What could you possibly do you
impudent little puppet? Give me
your recorder.
                                                            
Kirum takes out a tiny recorder and hands it to him. Dr.
Todd removes the disc inside and smashes the recorder
against the wall. Kirum opens his mouth.
                                                            
                       DR. TODD
Is this your idea of confession?.
You're not an accessory you are
the murderer. And don't pretend
you didn't realize before now what
a 'Cleanser' was for. How else
were you to know who to kill next?
                                                            
Kirum sits down and Dr. Todd straightens his clothes and
walks away.
                                                            

50.

                       KIRUM
At least some day I'll be able to
look myself in the mirror.
                                                            
                       DR. TODD
Yeah well I hear they're hiring
"Instinct Doctors" at McDonald's.
For future reference I don't like
pickles on my hamburger.
                                                            
He walks out the door and it closes behind him.
                                                            
 
INT. JANICE MANGUM'S HOUSE. - NIGHT
                                                            
Elicia walks in the front door and FATHEAD (English Mastiff)
barks and jumps on top of her. She laughs and plays with the
dog until her mother walks up.
                                                            
                       JANICE
Sampson! You'll rip out your
stitches.
                                                            
Elicia stops playing and gives her a hard look.
                                                            
                       JANICE
What?
                                                            
                       ELICIA
What happened with you and Andre?
                                                            
                       JANICE
Honey I've told you a hundred...
                                                            
                       ELICIA
The truth this time.
                                                            
                       JANICE
I don't want to relive those times
by talking about them.
                                                            
                       ELICIA
What about my brother Thomas?
                                                            
Janice turns to walk away.
                                                            
                       ELICIA
I want to know.
                                                            
                       JANICE
You couldn't remember him.
                                                            

51.

                       ELICIA
I remember a lot. I remember the
smell of his cigars and how he'd
laugh so loud it would fill the
whole house. I remember thinking I
was getting a baby brother but he
never came. What happened?
                                                            
                       JANICE
I did it for your own good.
                                                            
                       ELICIA
Did what? What did you do mother?
                                                            
                       JANICE
I traded your brother for you.
                                                            
Long silence.
                                                            
                       JANICE
He would have drawn you into that
world and I wasn't going to have
it.
                                                            
                       ELICIA
What world?
                                                            
                       JANICE
That family. Not a day goes by I
don't think of Thomas and hope
he's alright.
                                                            
                       ELICIA
He's not alright he's dead. An
accident on his twentieth
birthday.
                                                            
Janice looks Elicia in the eyes but she turns away.
                                                            
                       ELICIA
Andre Chathum made the same deal
but he checked on me.
                                                            
Janice sits down hard.
                                                            
                       JANICE
      (Talking half to
       herself.)
This is what I've tried to avoid
your whole life.
                                                            

52.

                       ELICIA
I'm going to see Andre in the
morning.
                                                            
Janice looks dazed and Elicia makes a phone call.
                                                            
KIRUM'S HOTEL ROOM IN WASHINGTON.
                                                            
                       KIRUM
      (On his mouth
       phone.)
Hello.
                                                            
                       ELICIA
Kirum where are you?
                                                            
                       KIRUM
Washington.
                                                            
                       ELICIA
I'll be there in the morning. You
won't believe who this leads to.
                                                            
                       KIRUM
Andre Chathum.
                                                            
                       ELICIA
How'd you know?
                                                            
                       KIRUM
We'll discuss it in the morning.
                                                            
                       ELICIA
Are you alright?
                                                            
                       KIRUM
I'm in suite 1139 at the ATC
Hotel. .
                                                            
He hangs up without another word.
                                                            
She looks at the phone then hangs up.
                                                            
 
INT. JANICE MANGUM'S HOUSE - NIGHT
                                                            
MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT.
                                                            
Elicia's awakened by a noise. She walks out of her room.
                                                            
                                         KITCHEN.
                                                            

53.

Elicia drinks some water. She sees a shadow outside and
notices the door's unlocked. Very slowly she reaches for the
handle but as she touches the lock the door comes flying
open and a man grabs her. She tries to scream but he covers
her mouth and forces her to the floor face down. With his
hand on her mouth he turns her head around and she sees John
Mayhew holding a gun to her head.
                                                            
                       OFFICER MAYHEW
      (Whispering.)
You don't follow directions very
well do you? If you don't follow
these directions it's your life.
You're going to stand up very
slowly and walk out that door.I'm
going to take my hand off of your
mouth and you're not going to
scream. Understand?
                                                            
She shakes her head yes. Very softly she says.
                                                            
                       ELICIA
John?
                                                            
                       OFFICER MAYHEW
What?
                                                            
                       ELICIA
Meet Fathead.
                                                            
He looks up and the dog is inches from his head. He growls
and John points his gun at him. Elicia knocks the gun out of
his hand and the dog clamps down on his throat. Elicia finds
the gun but John is already dead. She looks out the window
and James is standing by a car smoking a cigarette.
                                                            
                                         OUTSIDE.
                                                            
Elicia surprises James from behind and holds a gun on him.
                                                            
                       ELICIA
No sudden moves. Let me see both
hands.
                                                            
He drops his cane and raises his hands after flicking his
cigarette on the ground.
                                                            
                       DETECTIVE CHRISTIANSON
You have no idea what you're
getting into.
                                                            

54.

                       ELICIA
Mayhew's dead. Cuff your right
hand and lay face down.
                                                            
He does and she cuffs his hands behind his back. Her mother
walks outside. She's very calm.
                                                            
                       JANICE
This is what Andre Chathum's world
is like Elicia. Hello James.
                                                            
                       DETECTIVE CHRISTIANSON
Janice. I'd shake your hand but...
                                                            
                       ELICIA
How do you know each other?
                                                            
                       JANICE
We go way back.
                                                            
                       ELICIA
What else do you know? Never mind
go call the cops.
                                                            
                       JANICE
      (Ignoring the
       question.)
He is a cop Elicia. Save yourself
some time and let him get rid of
the body.
                                                            
Elicia looks at Detective Christianson who smirks.
                                                            
                       DETECTIVE CHRISTIANSON
Mother knows best.
                                                            
Elicia thinks about it for a second and then takes the cuffs
off.
                                                            
                                         CARRYING MAYHEW'S
BODY.
                                                            
Christianson puts Mayhew's body in the trunk and Elicia sees
Lisa on the back seat asleep. She picks Lisa up and James
gets in the driver's seat
                                                            
                       ELICIA
I trusted you.
                                                            
                       DETECTIVE CHRISTIANSON
You're making a mistake.
                                                            

55.

                       ELICIA
Where's the Kirian blade?
                                                            
He drives away.
                                                            
 
INT. KIRUM'S HOTEL ROOM. - DAY
                                                            
Elicia's heard by Kirum who is in the bathroom looking in
the mirror.
                                                            
                       ELICIA
If you'd have received that 'wink'
we might never have known because
you're immune.
                                                            
Kirum is in deep thought.
                                                            
                                         FLASHBACK TO
IN-LAW'S BACK YARD.
                                                            
Charles Waynebridge walks up to Kirum and Helen.
                                                            
                       CHARLES
Did a boy walk back here?
                                                            
                       HELEN
We didn't see anyone. Kirum's been
called to work and we're going to
have a tree service come and cut
down the tree.
                                                            
                       CHARLES
That's nonsense. I'll have it done
in an hour.
                                                            
He smiles and winks at Kirum who winks back.
                                                            
                                         BACK TO BATHROOM.
                                                            
                       KIRUM
      (To himself in the
       mirror.)
How many people have you murdered?
                                                            
                       ELICIA
      (From the other
       room.)
What do you know about Andre
Chathum?
                                                            
Silence.
                                                            

56.

                       ELICIA
Kirum.
                                                            
                       KIRUM
      (Splashes water on
       his face.)
He's the silent force behind ATC.
If the 'Henderson Amendment'
passes in Tuesday's election he'll
no longer have to hide his
technology derived from illegal
stem-cell and clone research.
                                                            
                       ELICIA
Will it pass?
                                                            
                       KIRUM
How do you think the victims are
chosen?
                                                            
She's dazed.
                                                            
                       ELICIA
So my mother's ex is killing for
profit.
                                                            
Kirum walks back into the other room.
                                                            
                                         HOTEL ROOM.
                                                            
                       KIRUM
Andre Chathum is your father?
                                                            
                       ELICIA
All of this is by design.
                                                            
                       KIRUM
It's time for some answers.
                                                            
They leave and Kirum double checks to see that he has his
remote.
                                                            
 
INT. AC MANSION OFFICE - NIGHT
                                                            
ANDRE CHATHUM (Late fifties white male with a white beard
and hair) is sitting behind an old desk smoking a cigar and
Kirum is escorted in by a butler.
                                                            
                       MR. CHATHUM
Have a seat Dr. Lambert.
                                                            
Kirum sits across from Chathum.
                                                            

57.

                       MR. CHATHUM
I hear you're leaving the company?
                                                            
Kirum just stares at him.
                                                            
                       MR. CHATHUM
What do you think you know?
                                                            
                       KIRUM
I know suicide trends in shear
numbers, non to mention sporadic
shifts in areas of the population,
astound logic. I know the ATC is
growing wealthy beyond estimation
because of suicides. I know only a
few years ago a vote to allow
unbridled Embryonic Stem Cell
Research was impossible but now it
appears inevitable.
                                                            
                       MR. CHATHUM
What does all that mean?
                                                            
                       KIRUM
It means money. I'm sure you'll
benefit more than anyone.
                                                            
                       MR. CHATHUM
Ungoverned research has gone on
for years in places like India and
Malaysia. An upcoming vote might
provide some federal funds but
that's small potatoes. It's a
'Litmus' test if you will to tell
me when to enter an election.
                                                            
                       KIRUM
      (Facetiously.)
Don't tell me. You want to be
President?
                                                            
Chathum grins.
                                                            
                       KIRUM
Impossible. ATC can't even have
your name attached to it because
of outcries about your lack of
research ethics.
                                                            
                       MR. CHATHUM
Ironic isn't it? ATC kills people
while my research save lives and
I'm vilified?
                                                            

58.

                       KIRUM
You don't deny it? You really
believe you can be President?
                                                            
                       MR. CHATHUM
'Electoral College' good doctor.
No matter how slim the margin a
win is a win.
                                                            
Kirum pauses to think.
                                                            
                       KIRUM
Now you think you can just stop
killing people and all will be
forgotten?
                                                            
                       MR. CHATHUM
Although making money while
eliminating the opposition has
been serendipitous for me it was
and still is the primary
motivation for others. As agreed
I'll remove myself from the
picture but I hardly see the ATC
being desolved.
                                                            
                       KIRUM
The number of deaths mean nothing
to you?
                                                            
                       MR. CHATHUM
Just casualties of war. At least
they're dieng for a good cause.
                                                            
                       KIRUM
Cause? Since when does genocide
qualify as a cause? And it takes
two to make a war; the people
you're killing don't even know
there in a fight.
                                                            
                       MR. CHATHUM
Why did you come here?
                                                            
                       KIRUM
You're the one who led us here you
tell me.
                                                            
                       MR. CHATHUM
I'm afraid you're mistaken but
obviously now I can't let you
leave.
                                                            

59.

                                         FLASHBACK TO PHONE
CALL FROM DR. TODD.
                                                            
Kirum's in a hotel room playing his video game when his
mouth phone rings.
                                                            
                       DR. TODD
Dr. Lambert I'm going to need
another favor. You and Elicia have
an 'Absolution' for reverend
Charles Plackard. Let her handle
it and don't let her know you know
the detective working the case.
                                                            
                       KIRUM
Christianson. Elicia's probably
ready but I don't see a need to
break with protocol.
                                                            
                       DR. TODD
Just make sure she takes the
reading doctor.
                                                            
                                         BACK TO AC MANSION
OFFICE.
                                                            
                       KIRUM
      (Snapping out of
       it.)
Surely you don't think I came here
without telling anyone?
                                                            
Chathum opens a drawer and pulls out the envelope addressed
to Helen.
                                                            
                       MR. CHATHUM
It's our hotel doctor. Look at it
this way. Without your confession
you're fiance will cry at your
funeral.
                                                            
The door opens and a guard takes Kirum by the arm and leads
him out of the room. Andre's eyes glow a little as Elicia
walks in.
                                                            
He sits back in his chair and she sits across from him.
Neither of them speak at first.
                                                            
                       MR. CHATHUM
So now do you believe me?
                                                            

60.

                       ELICIA
I believe mother's lying about
something but so are you.
                                                            
                                         FLASHBACK TO
ELICIA'S CHILDHOOD.
                                                            
Janice and a four year old Elicia are planting flowers and
Janice is wearing a flattering sun-dress that accentuates
her trim figure.
                                                            
                       YOUNG ELICIA
Mommy will my brother be here
soon?
                                                            
                       JANICE
Tomorrow dear. And you'll need to
be a big girl OK?
                                                            
                       YOUNG ELICIA
I'll be a big girl mommy I
promise.
                                                            
                                         AC MANSION OFFICE
                                                            
                       ELICIA
Mother wasn't pregnant when Thomas
was born.
                                                            
He just stares at her.
                                                            
                       ELICIA
Your medical file says you were
injured as a boy and could never
have children is that true?
                                                            
                       MR. CHATHUM
It was no accident. Abrahin and
Zephyr nearly castrated me.
                                                            
                       ELICIA
Who are Thomas's father and
mother?
                                                            
                       MR. CHATHUM
Same as yours Abrahin and Helen.
                                                            
                       ELICIA
But...
                                                            
                       MR. CHATHUM
We began experimenting with your
DNA as soon as you were born. We
            (MORE)

61.

                       MR. CHATHUM (cont'd)
made several clones of you and
then by pure luck sent a signal to
the regulatory DNA of one of them
which made him male. That's the
one we kept alive.
                                                            
Elicia's dumbfounded.
                                                            
                       ELICIA
You can't be serious?
                                                            
                       MR. CHATHUM
Unfortunately so many laws were
broken we couldn't publish. I
didn't care I just wanted to know
it was possible. When it worked
your mother came to me with an
offer.
                                                            
                       ELICIA
A trade?
                                                            
                       MR. CHATHUM
An opportunity to get one of you
away from that family.
                                                            
                       ELICIA
Wow. Dejavu.
                                                            
                       MR. CHATHUM
Your grandfather was Zephyr
Chathum. He was responsible for my
father's death. Janice was one of
the students who watched him take
his own life with the Kirian
blade.
                                                            
                       ELICIA
And the two of you fell in love.
                                                            
                       MR. CHATHUM
I was in love with her but she
loved Abrahin. Zephyr said he
wouldn't let a homeless orphan mix
blood with his son's so she
pretended to love me. We ran away
at sixteen but when she told me
she was pregnant I knew it was a
matter of time.
                                                            
                       ELICIA
For what?
                                                            

62.

                       MR. CHATHUM
They're going to use you Elicia to
try and destroy me.
                                                            
                       ELICIA
Why?
                                                            
                       MR. CHATHUM
Like his father Abrahin could care
less about money but he needs
control of ATC to further his
cause. If I die you'll inherit
everything and he believes he can
control you.
                                                            
                       ELICIA
What cause?
                                                            
                       MR. CHATHUM
He's says he's learned the ways of
the 'Dablique'. They were powerful
native Americans who could
communicate with the spirit world.
The freak believes he's helping
Satan's warriors defeat God's
army.
                                                            
                       ELICIA
      (Sarcastically.)
So all of this is the work of the
devil? Why should I believe you?
                                                            
                       MR. CHATHUM
Because you're still alive. I told
you to stay away from the ATC but
you had to see for yourself. The
only reason you left that hotel
room alive is they need you.
                                                            
Eyes wide open she shakes her head no.
                                                            
                       ELICIA
Kirum knows nothing about this.
He's as innocent..
                                                            
                       MR. CHATHUM
Ask him how he became an agent.
                                                            
The door opens and in walks three men holding guns followed
by Dr.Todd and THOMAS CHATHUM. (Early to mid-twenties male
who looks eerily similar to Elicia)
                                                            

63.

                       ELICIA
Thomas?
                                                            
Thomas pays no attention to her. He grins as he walks toward
Andre.
                                                            
                       DR. TODD
Put her with her friends.
                                                            
Thomas walks behind Andre's desk causing him to retreat as
he stares at him. Thomas sits in Andre's seat and takes one
of his cigars.
                                                            
 
INT. UNDERGROUND ALTAR. - NIGHT
                                                            
Elicia and Kirum are a circular room with a giant bowl-like
alter at the bottom of descending layers of steps/seats.
Christianson is at the bottom of the room leaning against
the alter.
                                                            
                       ELICIA
      (To Kirum.)
If you saw him you'd know that was
my brother.
                                                            
Kirum doesn't look her in the eyes as he descends a couple
levels and sits.
                                                            
                       DETECTIVE CHRISTIANSON
Brother?
                                                            
Elicia keeps looking at Kirum.
                                                            
                       ELICIA
Whatever you call him I thought he
was dead. Kirum how did you become
an agent?
                                                            
Kirum doesn't say anything and she walks closer to him.
                                                            
                       DETECTIVE CHRISTIANSON
He killed his wife and child.
                                                            
Kirum closes his eyes.
                                                            
                                         FLASHBACK TO
LAMBERT'S BEDROOM.
                                                            
Kirum's wife is screaming and Kirum is delivering their
child at home.
                                                            

64.

                       KIRUM
      (Calm.)
Elizabeth.
                                                            
She looks at him and nods.
                                                            
Kirum gives her an epidural analgesic.
                                                            
                       KIRUM
Better?
                                                            
She doesn't answer. He turns her over and her eyes are
rolled back in her head.
                                                            
                                         UNDERGROUND ALTER.
                                                            
                       KIRUM
Elizabeth had a maternal
anaphylactic reaction to a general
anaesthetic and I lost them both.
                                                            
                       ELICIA
Kirum you could have told me...
                                                            
                       DETECTIVE CHRISTIANSON
No he couldn't.
                                                            
                       KIRUM
Don't act so smug Jim you're as
guilty as I am.
                                                            
                       ELICIA
Jim?
                                                            
Christianson and Kirum look at each other and Elicia waits
for one of them to speak.
                                                            
                       KIRUM
The ATC had just received a
worldwide contract and I needed a
fresh start. Raymond Todd trained
me and as I told you my first
Absolution was a Type 3.
                                                            
                       ELICIA
Right. A suicide.
                                                            
Kirum looks at her then looks away.
                                                            
                                         FLASHBACK TO
ACCIDENT SCENE.
                                                            

65.

It's dark and rainy. Kirum is examining the charred remains
of a boy when Dr. Todd walks up to him.
                                                            
                       DR. TODD
Have you made your decision?
                                                            
                       KIRUM
Yes he took his life.
                                                            
                       DR. TODD
That's the problem. Good job but
this is the son of one of the
wealthiest men in the country and
he's not going to put up with
having his family name dragged
through the mud.
                                                            
                       KIRUM
Are you asking me to lie?
                                                            
                       DR. TODD
It's not a lie you could be wrong.
                                                            
                       KIRUM
You just said...
                                                            
                       DR. TODD
I just said this is an accident. I
don't have to remind you how hard
it was to save your license
doctor.
                                                            
                       KIRUM
Don't call me doctor and you still
have a problem. If I say this
isn't a suicide the police will
investigate and the truth will be
told.
                                                            
Detective Christianson walks up.
                                                            
                       DETECTIVE CHRISTIANSON
A clear case of a young man
driving too fast in his birthday
present and losing control in the
rain. Happens all the time.
                                                            
                                         UNDERGROUND ALTAR.
                                                            
                       ELICIA
But that was Thomas upstairs.
                                                            
Kirum looks at Christianson.
                                                            

66.

                       DETECTIVE CHRISTIANSON
Andre wanted Thomas dead and
Raymond Todd was promised he'd be
President but Andre changed his
mind. It wasn't hard for Todd and
Thomas to stage the accident.
                                                            
                       ELICIA
So why are you in here with us?
                                                            
                       DETECTIVE CHRISTIANSON
What's the difference he
accidentally killed his family and
I grew up without a family. The
ATC was founded using freaks,
criminals and losers and we fit
the mold.
                                                            
                       ELICIA
      (To herself.)
Hitler.
                                                            
                       DETECTIVE CHRISTIANSON
Yeah a lot like Hitler. They have
cops in virtually every department
and I had a history with Andre
Chathum so they recruited me. But
when Mayhew told me about the
symbiotic relationship between the
ATC and Catchum Conservatory I
joined his gang.
                                                            
                       KIRUM
      (To James.)
You never said they were working
together.
                                                            
                       ELICIA
How?
                                                            
                       DETECTIVE CHRISTIANSON
They consider each other a
necessary evil in their chess
match against 'weak-minded'
people. Abrahin's little freaks
provide the pieces, Chathum and
the Counsel the money and strategy
and the agents move the pieces
around whether they realize it or
not.
                                                            
                       ELICIA
Freaks? You mean the 'Innocents'?
                                                            

67.

Christianson chuckles.
                                                            
                       DETECTIVE CHRISTIANSON
That's some euphemistic crap made
up by Abrahin. The little
cave-devils provide a refuge for
demons and in turn grow up in
ecstacy.
                                                            
                                         FLASHBACK TO HOTEL
WITH KIRUM.
                                                            
Elicia's in bed and smiling from her dream. In her dream
she's making love to a man and they're in ecstacy. Elicia
hears a voice and stops but the man keeps making love to
her.
                                                            
                       MAID
Elicia. Elicia. Elicia.
                                                            
                                         ELICIA'S CHILDHOOD.
                                                            
Elicia closes her eyes and sees herself in bed, as a little
girl, with her wrists tied together. A maid walks into her
room and checks to see if anyone is listening before talking
to Elicia.
                                                            
                       MAID
Whatever you do don't let them see
you smile.
                                                            
Elicia smiles and the maid kisses her forehead.
                                                            
                                         BACK TO HOTEL WITH
KIRUM.
                                                            
Elicia wakes up and peeks at Kirum who is playing his video
game. She glances at her gun and picks it up. She looks and
sees the clip is missing and then pulls the trigger.
                                                            
                                         UNDERGROUND ALTAR.
                                                            
                       ELICIA
Where's Lisa?
                                                            
                       DETECTIVE CHRISTIANSON
With her grandfather.
                                                            
Kirum and Elicia wait for him to elaborate.
                                                            

68.

                       DETECTIVE CHRISTIANSON
Sheriff Glaze. His son and wife
were killed in a 'Crimilla'
ritual...
                                                            
                       KIRUM
      (Kirum and Elicia
       at the same time.)
Crimilla?
                                                            
                       DETECTIVE CHRISTIANSON
Actuvia Tuo Crimilla comes from
some satanic text. I don't know
what it means but that's what this
room is for. Victims are chained
to that alter and the little
creeps give' em a suicide demon
and watch them kill themselves.
They really get off on it.
                                                            
                       ELICIA
Is that what they'll do to Lisa?
                                                            
                       DETECTIVE CHRISTIANSON
Not hardly.
                                                            
                       KIRUM
How do you know this?
                                                            
                       DETECTIVE CHRISTIANSON
Mayhew's sister was an 'Innocent'
and he told me some. As I was
about to say the sheriff got rid
of his wife and son to protect
Samantha. She filled me in on the
rest.
                                                            
                       ELICIA
She was an 'Innocent'.
                                                            
                       DETECTIVE CHRISTIANSON
One of the best until she grew out
of it. Most die soon after they
lose their ability to 'house'. I
guess she's hanging around for
Lisa.
                                                            
                       KIRUM
But Lisa saved Elicia.
                                                            
                       DETECTIVE CHRISTIANSON
Lisa saved Milgatha. According to
Abrahin Milgatha wants to usurp
            (MORE)

69.

                       DETECTIVE CHRISTIANSON (cont'd)
Gravhalla and have control over
all demons. For that to happen
Gravhalla's 'Carrier' has to be
killed with the 'Killian' blade.
                                                            
                       KIRUM
Andre?
                                                            
                       DETECTIVE CHRISTIANSON
Zephyr had Andre take Gravhalla
from Anglund's dead body but
instead of trying to kill himself
he became fearless.
                                                            
                       KIRUM
So they used me to learn whether
or not Elicia could survive
Gravhalla?
                                                            
                       DETECTIVE CHRISTIANSON
      (Nodding yes.)
When she kills Andre.
                                                            
                       ELICIA
I'm not killing anybody.
                                                            
The door opens and in walks Thomas and Dr. Todd followed by
Andre Chatham who has his wrists bound and his mouth taped
shut.
                                                            
                       THOMAS
Hello sis.
                                                            
Raymond Todd prepares a syringe and needle for Elicia.
                                                            
 
INT. ON THE ALTER. - DAY
                                                            
Elicia's on top of the alter naked. She's in a drugged state
and isn't sure whether she's dreaming or awake. She sees
Thomas on top of her naked and then he disappears and she
sees Milgatha. There are moans and a man's voice around her
so she looks to see what's going on. Lisa is passed out on
an upper level. Andre Chatham and Samantha are cuffed to the
alter with Abrahin standing over Samantha. Chatham goes limp
and Samantha has the Kirian blade over her left eye. Elicia
looks at Milgatha who smiles and she passes out.
                                                            
                                         AN HOUR LATER.
                                                            
Elicia wakes up and has blood all over her. In her right
hand is the Kirian blade and she sees Samantha is dead with

70.

a hole where her left eye should be. Andre Chathum is also
dead. Elicia drops the blade and puts on Samantha's robe.
Raymond Todd walks in the room followed by Janice.
                                                            
                       JANICE
      (Trying to hug
       Elicia who backs
       away.)
Darling are you alright?
                                                            
Elicia is still groggy.
                                                            
                       DR. TODD
A Senior Agent is on his way and
of course we hope and pray this
was a suicide.
                                                            
                       JANICE
Of course dear.
                                                            
                       ELICIA
Cut the crap. The least you can do
is not patronize me. What's all
this for?
                                                            
                       DR. TODD
      (Meeting eyes with
       Janice.)
You'll be charged and convicted of
the murder of Samantha but the
judge will put you in our custody.
After your mother gets legal
custody of Brezhula I'll pronounce
you fit to be released.
                                                            
                       JANICE
You'll be fine darling.
                                                            
                                         FLASHBACK TO
ELICIA'S COLLEGE
GRADUATION DAY.
                                                            
Elicia signs for a package and opens it. Inside is a bundle
of cash and a letter.

Letter: Dear Beatrice,

Congratulations for all you've accomplished. Here's
something to free your mind and your time while you're in
med-school. When you finish come visit me so you can know
who you really are.

Sincerely,

71.


Your father Zephyr Chathum

Leavenworth Prison
Leavenworth, Ks
Inmate 18109

Elicia looks at the application for ATC Medical Institute.
                                                            
                                         BACK TO ALTER.
                                                            
                       ELICIA
I know who my real father is.
                                                            
                       JANICE
The Chathums were our protectors
until Zephyr raped me. You failed
the test and I couldn't have
another child so we funded Andre's
research.
                                                            
                       ELICIA
We who?
                                                            
                       JANICE
The Catchum estate. Your's was the
greatest family on earth and it
was nearly wiped out but destiny
gave us Thomas.
                                                            
                       ELICIA
What did you need Thomas for?
                                                            
                       JANICE
We needed a father for your child.
                                                            
                       ELICIA
So he did rape me? This is sick.
You're doing this because you
think we're destined to birth the
savior of the world?
                                                            
                       JANICE
Not savior dear the ruler of the
earth. The son of the one true
god.
                                                            
                       DR. TODD
Thomas is the first man not made
by the creator. 'The son of a man
without a soul will have dominion
over all the earth.'
                                                            

72.

                       ELICIA
I see fine. I see you're all nuts
and if I am pregnant there's no
way I'll have it.
                                                            
                       JANICE
That's why we had to do it this
way dear. You'll see some day.
                                                            
She walks away and Elicia covers her face with her hands.
                                                            
                       DR. TODD
Your accomplices are upstairs. You
can wait up there until Agent
Pei's finished.
                                                            
 
INT. ENTRYWAY OF THE CHATHUM MANSION. - DAY
                                                            
Kirum and Christianson are talking to Elicia.
                                                            
                       ELICIA
I'm fine. Where's Thomas?
                                                            
                       DETECTIVE CHRISTIANSON
He left with your mother.
                                                            
Senior Agent Maulin Pei walks in followed by three heavily
armed men. Kirum looks hard at Pei who takes charge.
                                                            
                       AGENT PEI
Everyone outside.
                                                            
Dr. Todd looks at his guards and they escort Kirum,
Christianson and Elicia outside.
                                                            
                                         MANSION COURTYARD.
                                                            
                       KIRUM
      (To Elicia.)
Did you kill Chathum?
                                                            
                       ELICIA
No but I'm being framed for it.
                                                            
Kirum walks away quickly and takes his remote out of his
pocket.

                                                            
                       ELICIA
      (To Christianson.)
How could Glaze let this happen?
                                                            

73.

                                         FLASHBACK TO ANGLUND
CHATHUM'S SUICIDE.
                                                            
Anglund Chathum walks out of the school-house and stabs
himself with the 'Kirian' blade. A group of students watch
almost unaffected until Zephyr Chathum walks up to a young
Janice.
                                                            
                       ZEPHYR
Your destiny is set Janice.
                                                            
Zephyr bows to Janice and all of the students follow his
lead. Janice looks at Zephyr with obvious disdain.
                                                            
                                         BACK TO MANSION
COURTYARD.
                                                            
                       DETECTIVE CHRISTIANSON
Loyalty to your family is all he's
ever known.
                                                            
                                         INSIDE MANSION.
                                                            
Dr. Todd tries to get the attention of Agent Pei but he's on
his mouth phone. He holds his palm up to Todd and Todd gets
frustrated.
                                                            
                       DR. TODD
Need I remind you who you work for
Agent Pei. The victims are
downstairs.
                                                            
                       AGENT PEI
I work for the ATC and you need to
wait outside with everyone else.
                                                            
Todd wants to argue but one of the armed men shows him the
door. He stomps out.
                                                            
                                         MANSION COURTYARD.
                                                            
                       DETECTIVE CHRISTIANSON
We have to make a run for it.
                                                            
                       ELICIA
You're right. After they take me
in I won't have a chance.
                                                            
                       KIRUM
Just wait a sec.
                                                            
Kirum watches the big van pull inside the gate and the three
of them wait anxiously.
                                                            

74.

The rear doors come flying open and a team of 'Cleaners' run
into the mansion.
                                                            
Dr. Todd tries to run inside but gets a gun put into his
chest. He turns and looks at Elicia and yells to his guards.
                                                            
                       DR. TODD
      (Pointing at
       Elicia.)
Stop her!
                                                            
Kirum, Elicia and Christianson are held at gunpoint by Dr.
Todd's men. Todd walks over to Elicia.
                                                            
                       DR. TODD
It doesn't matter because you
can't kill your baby. Brezhula
will live and even if you gain
control of ATC you'll still have
to call me Mr. President.
                                                            
Agent Pei and his men surround Todd and his men.
                                                            
                       AGENT PEI
Excuse me Mr. President but you
have some explaining to do.
                                                            
Todd's men drop their guns and Todd is cuffed and read his
rights. Elicia runs inside. Pei looks at Kirum and smiles.
                                                            
                       AGENT PEI
      (Showing his
       remote to Kirum.)
I love pickles on my hamburger.
                                                            
                       KIRUM
      (Laughing.)
I'll remember that.
                                                            
Elicia walks out carrying the Kirian blade. She checks
Todd's pocket for keys and gets into his car. Kirum looks at
Christianson.
                                                            
                       DETECTIVE CHRISTIANSON
I know where she's going.
                                                            
 
EXT. CATCHUM CONSERVATORY - NIGHT
                                                            
Elicia's cab pulls up and she gets out. She walks up to the
window of the school building and looks inside. Everything's
completely dark and the cab pulls away without her. She

75.

finds a rock and throws it through the window. She can hear
herself breath as she checks from room to room. She can't
find anyone and she uses a phone in the office.
                                                            
                                         SCHOOLHOUSE
                                                            
                       ELICIA
Kirum ask Christianson where they
take the kids?
                                                            
                       KIRUM
Are you there now? We'll be there
soon Elicia wait for us.
                                                            
                       ELICIA
      (Very serious.)
Where do they take the children?
                                                            
She hears nothing for a second.
                                                            
                       KIRUM
They don't take them anywhere they
live under ground.
                                                            
Elicia pauses to think.
                                                            
                       ELICIA
I have to go.
                                                            
                       KIRUM
      (To a dead line.)
Elicia!
                                                            
                                         BASEMENT OF
SCHOOLHOUSE.
                                                            
The room is pitch black and Elicia has to feel along the
walls to get around the room. After finding nothing but
walls she gets on hers knees and finds a very small opening.
She has to lay flat and inch forward using her elbows. Near
the end of the tunnel she stops to catch her breath then
sees demon eyes light up. The eyes disappear to her left.
                                                            
                       ELICIA
Lisa?
                                                            
She works her way to the end and stands up bumping her head
on the dirt ceiling.
                                                            
                       ELICIA
Lisa! Lisa where are you?
                                                            
She stands quietly and hears activity in front of her. She

76.

puts her left hand on the dirt wall to help guide her into
the pitch black cavity. About ten feet she realizes she's in
a corridor. She finds a small cubby dug into the side of the
wall on the left and sees something in there.
                                                            
                       ELICIA
Hello. Is someone in there?
                                                            
She reaches inside and finds a child's teddy bear. A little
further down there's another cubby on the right side of the
corridor and this continues as she finds several staggered
cubbies but no children. Suddenly eyes light up in front of
her again then disappear to her right. She follows and as
she rounds a corner a dozen glowing eyes are staring at her.
                                                            
                       ELICIA
I'm here to help. Don't be
frightened.
                                                            
                       ABRAHIN
      (Suddenly.)
It's isn't you that frightens them
Elicia Catchum.
                                                            
Abrahin lights a kerosene lamp and the 'Innocents' scatter
and disappear. Abrahin looks at the Kirian blade in Elicia's
front pocket.
                                                            
                       ELICIA
I'm just here for Lisa. Give her
to me and we'll go.
                                                            
                       ABRAHIN
Lisa! Lisa do you want to go with
Elicia?
                                                            
Lisa appears out of the dark and stands in front of Elicia.
                                                            
                       LISA
      (Demon voice.)
No but she can stay with me.
                                                            
Elicia backs away and bumps into the dirt wall.
                                                            
                       ELICIA
That's not Lisa talking. I want to
hear from Lisa she wants to stay.
                                                            
Lisa returns to normal and looks Elicia in the eye.
                                                            
                       LISA
      (Sweet voice.)
Elicia.
                                                            

77.

                       ELICIA
Yes Lisa.
                                                            
                       LISA
I have something for you.
                                                            
                       ELICIA
      (Dropping to her
       knees.)
What do you have for me?
                                                            
Lisa smiles and then winks at her.
                                                            
Elicia's in disbelief.
                                                            
                       ELICIA
Lisa how could you do this?
                                                            
                       ABRAHIN
He misses you Elicia.
                                                            
Elicia grabs the Kirian blade and holds it over her eye.
Abrahin drops his lamp and runs at her.
                                                            
                       ABRAHIN
      (Reaching for the
       blade.)
Elicia no.
                                                            
Elicia buries the blade into Abrahin's left eye. As soon as
she does all of the 'Innocents' scream at an unbearable
decibel and volume. The lamp oil spills and creates a fire
lighting up the room.
Elicia grabs Lisa and finds the door Abrahin used to enter.
She runs out and ends up at storm doors in the middle of the
field. She sees headlights and hear sirens. She starts to
run but sees Kirum and Christianson in the first car being
followed by two police cars. Kirum and Christianson get out
of the car and run to Elicia. Sheriff Glaze and his deputies
jump out of their cars and hold their guns on Elicia. They
let their guns drop to their sides and stare in Elicia's
direction. Kirum turns and looks behind them.
                                                            
                       KIRUM
Elicia.
                                                            
She looks at him and he turns his eyes behind her. She looks
and all of the 'Innocents' are neatly lined up waiting for
her command.
                                                            
                       SHERIFF GLAZE
They're yours now whether you want
'em or not. Goodbye Lisa.
                                                            

78.

                       LISA
Goodbye grandpa.
                                                            
He gets in his car and drives away leaving Elicia, Kirum and
Christianson staring at each other.
                                                            
 
INT. WAYNEBRIDGE HOME. - DAY
                                                            
Kirum walks in without knocking and sees Helen and Charlotte
in front of the TV. The news is on and the reporter is
standing in front of ATC headquarters.
                                                            
                       REPORTER.
According to a source with the FBI
this is the culmination of a
long-term investigation of the
ATC's role in the incredible
number of suicides over the last
several years. No official comment
was given as to whether or not
this is linked to the simultaneous
deafening screams by hundreds of
children around the world last
night at eleven twenty three east
coast time. Sheila Mitchell
reporting live from ATC
headquarters.
                                                            
Kirum stands in the doorway and watches as the News returns
to the newsroom anchor.
                                                            
                       ANCHOR.
Thank you Sheila. And in a related
story the catholic church says in
light of recent revelations it
will allow absolutions on past and
present suicide victims that fall
under the umbrella of what is now
being referred to as death by
'Suicide Hypnosis'.
                                                            
Helen and Charlotte hug and then Helen notices Kirum. She
runs to him and they hug. Charlotte joins them in a group
hug.
                                                            
 
INT. FORT LEAVENWORTH PRISON. - DAY
                                                            
Elicia waits for ZEPHYR CHATHUM. He walks in and sits across
from her separated by a glass partition. They speak over the
phones.
                                                            

79.

                       ZEPHYR
I guess you have a lot of
questions?
                                                            
                       ELICIA
No. I don't have any questions I
just came to give you something.
                                                            
He looks surprised and feigns a grin.
                                                            
                       ZEPHYR
What's that?
                                                            
She looks him in the eye and smiles. He smile back and she
'winks'.
