A white silk parachute opens.

 

TITLE AND CREDITS

 

-as it drifts. Beautiful. Ethereal.

 

EXT. DESERT LANDSCAPE AND MOUNTAINS - DAWN

 

Empty. Still. The sun is just starting to rise.

 

We see, in a rush of movement, the PARACHUTIST landing.

 

His boots first.

 

He hits the ground and rolls and the parachute streams out, billowing.

 

CUT TO

 

The Parachutist gathering up his parachute and folding it in the rising desert heat.

 

He's wearing a black leather jacket, canvas trousers, boots: a quasi-military look.

 

Blue eyes, black hair. Young. Not overly tough looking, but his movements show an inner toughness. Spirit.

 

He folds the parachute and buries it shallowly, along with the leather case. Marks the spot with stones.

 

Standing up, he looks at the sky. The desert. Mountains fading into blueness.

 

Nothing. No living being, but for some weeds or cacti.

 

He studies the sunrise, the shadows, and begins to walk.
