FADE IN:

INT. PAPILLON CAFFE - DAY

Cosy and quiet environment. PETER chats with Gentleman#1 (67) over lunch.

PETER

What's your dream now?

GENTLEMAN#1

(Unpretentiously)

To change the world...

PETER

Yes, our time is growing

short. Got to leave a

legacy and do something

meaningful.

As gentleman#1 nods, Peter passes him an A4 paper with a table filled with small prints.

PETER

This is my draft business

model.

Peter points to the rows and columns in the paper.

PETER (Cont'd)

I need not dwell on the

business model's value

propositions. They're

high-level public good

in the 21st C economy.

Pausing.

PETER (Cont'd)

The key activities I need

your techies to do is to

map out the gap and

niche of the current

technological landscape,

and preferably, the next-

generation technology

eg 6G.

Gentleman#1 nodding.

PETER (Cont'd)

As to revenue streams,

it'd take a few years to

happen.

PETER (Cont'd)

While the cost structure

has to be lean, there's

no money yet.

GENTLEMAN#1

(Nodding)

Security Coin Offering

(SCO) should be able to

eliminate the obstacles.

Peter nodding.

PETER

We use the tokens to

recognize the upfront

contribution of those

doing the initial due

diligence.

GENTLEMAN#1

If it wouldn't be easy

for SCO to be done in

Hong Kong, we can do

it in Taiwan, Singapore

or Switzerland.

PETER

The Netherlands is

another option.

GENTLEMAN#1 Let's have proof of concept

first.

Peter nodding.

INT. SIMPLY LIFE -DAY

Comfortable environment. GENTLEMAN#2 (67) chats with Peter.

PETER

What's ABCD?

GENTLEMAN#2

AI, Blockchain, Cloud

and Data. There're

many such centres of

excellence across

Canada.

PETER

I see. I've just talked

about them with another

same-minded gentleman.

GENTLEMAN#2

(Confidently)

I've very good Canadian

connections. I can connect

the dots - from technology

to funding...

PETER

That would be disruptive

in terms of partnerships.

International collaboration

is inevitable if we're to

change the world.

GENTLEMAN#2

Should the collaboration

be at the governmental

level?

PETER

We're retirees. Building

capacity at the

entrepreneurship level

is flexible - more can

join to achieve the Wow

effect.

Gentleman#2 nods as Peter ponders.

PETER (Cont'd)

Let's get prepared and

launch the project when

the Hong Kong protests

end. It will give new hope

to Hong Kong!

GENTLEMAN#2

(Smiling)

Yes, the timing's right!

PETER

Let me send you a detailed business plan to take

the matter forward on

your front.

INT. STUDY - DAY

TV ANCHOR reports on screen about the 50th anniversary of the release of the Beatles' Abbey Road album.

PETER (V.O.)

(Smiling)

I mimicked them taking

the same zebra crossing

too.

PETER (V.O.)

Perhaps, in a few years, "IPmania",coined by me,

will begin!

DAYDREAMING SEQUENCE

EXT. QUEENS ROAD - DAY

Blue sky. A piano-keyboard-like zebra crossing. A cyber-green Beetle parked half on the pavement.

Peter, leading gentleman#1 & 2, are sliding over the unique zebra crossing, with style.

END DAYDREAM SEQUENCE

Peter smiles.

FADE OUT. The End
