AERIAL SHOT of Krastly, where dark smoke bellows from various buildings of the city. Camera zooms towards Memorial Park, panning down for MID SHOT.

DISSOLVE TO:

EXT. MEMORIAL PARK - DAY

A large crowd stands in front of a makeshift wooden stage in the centre of the park. There is incoherent speech as the crowd talks over one another.

CUT TO:

EXT. OFFICE BLOCK ROOFTOP - DAY

MID SHOT of FIGURE facing away from the camera. Memorial Park is still visible from vantage point and camera angle. FIGURE crouches down to view Memorial Park and to stay out of sight from any other eyes. FIGURE is listening to the shouting of the crowd.

CROWD MEMBER (O.S)

Bring 'im out!

SECOND CROWD MEMBER (O.S)

Show us the demon!

 

Voices cut out due to FEEDBACK noise. FIGURE visibly flinches at the sound and all voices from the crowd are silenced.

CUT TO:

MEMORIAL PARK

CAMERA FOLLOWS second FIGURE, who is wearing army fatigues, and carries an assault rifle. A CLOSE UP SHOT of the S.U.L. badge on the FIGURE's arm. The S.U.L. MEMBER is followed by a second S.U.L. MEMBER, who is dragging a MAN behind him. The head of MAN is covered with a sack and the hands are bind by rope. The crowd watches as the S.U.L. MEMBER pass the Memorial Wall of the '07 Earthquake victims and stand on the stage. The MAN is forced to kneel on stage and the sack is removed from his head. The MAN, late 20s and Caucasian,  blinks as his eyes adjust to the light. FIRST S.U.L. MEMBER, a 20 year old African-American, steps forward to address the audience.

FIRST S.U.L. MEMBER

Fellow children of the Lord! Our Father has brought us together today. He has brought us together so that we may remain united in our hardship. So that we may follow the path that our Father has laid out for us. So that we may make an example of those who defy our Father's will. 

(pause)

But you have all been led astray! You scorn our Father! You believe he has turned his back on his children, that he no longer cares for us.

(pause)

But believe this. The plague that our Father has brought to this city is not a plague. It is a reckoning. The plague is the first step towards our Father's ideology. The plague will return the weak-hearted children to Him and those who remain at the end of his trial, will lead the rest of His children towards salvation. 

CROWD MEMBER (O.S.)

Kill the demon!

FIRST S.U.L. MEMBER

(look towards crowd member)

Patience, brother! We are the survivors of our Father's first step and now our test is to stay true to our Father. We must not (pause) succumb to the demons that poison our city. 

The crowd shouts and cheers.

FIRST S.U.L. MEMBER

(points at MAN on the stage)

Theo Brooks has poisoned our beloved city! He has been seen aiding the Electric Demon. Theo Brooks has been intoxicated by their otherworldly powers and has betrayed our Father's will. 

THEO BROOKS
(sobbing) 

No! No, it wasn't me!

FIRST S.U.L. MEMBER

Who knows what the Demon has made this man do? Perhaps he is the one that has been stealing food rations? Perhaps he is the one that has been stealing our sisters and daughters in the night? But this man. He has sold his soul to bring more of those Demons into our world. 

THEO BROOKS

I swear! I haven't killed anyone. Please. I have a daughter. 

FIRST S.U.L. MEMBER

Only our Father can deliver punishment. 

FIRST S.U.L. MEMBER signals to SECOND S.U.L. MEMBER who lifts his assault rifle.

FIRST S.U.L. MEMBER

But first we must deliver Brooks to Him.
