Right Turn


FADE IN.

INT. SLEEPING ROOM - DAY

Waking up, PETER grabs his phone.

PETER (V.O.)

Let me pick a question

in my waiting list to

answer.

He scrolls down the screen.

PETER (V.O.) (Cont'd)

Time is about right to

answer this question.

We see on the screen: Who and what are the big losers from the demonstrations and chaos in Hong Kong in the summer of 2019?

PETER (V.O.) (Cont'd)

It's about the big losers

and not small potatoes.

Peter begins to type.

INT. CLUBHOUSE - DAY

Phone in hand, Peter is editing a draft.

PETER (V.O.)

I hate the expression "Pro-democracy", as

they aren't, actually.

We see Peter modifying the last paragraph to read as follows:

"Pro-democracy". The expression is no different from "pro-violence", "pro-riots", "pro-tyranny of the minority", "pro-secession" and "pro-anti-China".

PETER (V.O.)(Cont'd)

"Pro-democracy" has

enslaved many naive

followers who are led

about by dark forces.

Peter taps "Submit".

Then, we see the number of views mounting, from a single digit to double digits, and then triple digits.

PETER (V.O.) (Cont'd)

The curious community

can't wait to see my timely

reports, analysis and

opinions.

Peter is thoughts.

PETER (V.O.) (Cont'd)

I believe I've touched

some of the viewers'

pain points. Many of

them have their own

biases and prejudices,

I don't hesitate to point

them out.

Pausing.

PETER (V.O.) (Cont'd)

I don't know who and

what they're. It's really

up to them to reflect

on their own fears and

desires.

INT. RESTAURANT - NIGHT

Enjoying his Red Bean Ice, Peter stares at his phone screen.

PETER (V.O.)

Here's a question for me

regarding what would

indicate the protesters'

winning. Having talked

about big losers, I'd also

talk about the winning

characteristics.

As Peter begins to type, we begin to see the following words, phrases and sentences appearing on his phone screen-

The following five act-characteristics, if they won the day without missing any one, would indicate victory:

(1) Stupidity. Stupid is as stupid does - their acts are irrational and destructive.

(2) Violence. They use physical force with the intention to damage, harm or kill. They are equipped.

(3) Terrorism. Apart from anti-authority, they use intimidation and violence against civilians.

(4) Tyranny. Unlike real democrats, they do not tolerate political pluralism ie their "democracy" trumps all.

(5) Communism. Hong Kong has to practise communism so as to re-distribute wealth, for them.

PETER (V.O.)

I'm just stating what

they're doing and their

end game if they

haven't thought about

it yet.

EXT. ROAD - DAY

Peter drives a vantage sports car, listening to the radio. We hear a news report:...the anti-mask law has been passed and will take effect from midnight..."

PETER (V.O.)

That means tonight is

the last night that rioters

can hide their identities.

I believe they'll make the

most of their last breadth.

Seeing a road fork ahead, Peter makes a turn.

PETER (V.O.) (Cont'd)

I've got something to do

in NT but I can wait until

the law comes into effect.

I don't want to be delayed

on my way back tonight.

INT. STUDY - DAY

Watching TV breaking news, Peter sees on the screen that masked persons are blocking roads in Hong Kong's CBD.

PETER (V.O.)

Yes, the law touches

their pain point.

Peter takes a look of the number of viewers of his Quora answers.

PETER (V.O.) (Cont'd)

I'm sharing my opinions

and insights so that if I

touch their pain points,

they'd better rethink

their values of good

and evil and make a

right turn.

FADE OUT. THE END
