Predict The Unpredictable


FADE IN.

INT. STUDY - DAY

PETER works behind his computer.

PETER (V.O.)

Having seen the riots

for the past two week

days, I can predict that

those haven't been caught

yet would still ignore the

law...

Pausing.

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

Let me focus on writing

a disputed domain name

administrative decision.

Peter reads and types; and reads again, and types again.

INT. CHA CHAAN TENG - DAY

Sharing a table with an OLD MAN (70s) sitting opposite him, Peter is having fried rice. Then he hears a MAN's shout.

MAN (O.S.)

(Rudely)

Eat your stuff! Don't

stare at me!

The old man is stunned. Discreetly turning his head, Peter has a glimpse of a MAN (20) in black walking past him.

PETER (V.O.)

The man in black is

charged and sounds

as if he's in charge...

Pausing.

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

As they're irrational

and negative, their

behaviour can't be

predicted.

Pausing.

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

The rule of thumb

is to stay away from

such stupid people

and let law enforcement

agencies deal with

them.

FLASH BACK

INT. COURT - DAY

Peter is court, prosecuting.

A beat.

The accused is taken down to cell.

END FLASHBACK

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

As a prosecutor, I

don't even bother to

look at the accused

if s/he pleads guilty.

EXT. SWIMMING POOL ENTRANCE - DAY

Closed. Looking frustrated, Peter walks close to the gate to read a notice.

PETER (V.O.)

Emergency? Yes,

now, everybody begins

see how negative the

rioters can be...

Peter leaves.

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

Everything looks

normal. The sun shines

the wind is cool... Let

me take a different route

home.

EXT. PEDESTRIAN FLYOVER - DAY

Seeing some Bauhinia flowers on one side, Peter stops to take a few photos.

PETER (V.O.)

The flower that represents

Hong Kong is not fragrant

at all.

Looking at traffic on the other side, Peter is attracted to something.

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

A woman in black is

directing traffic?

We hear motorcycle sounds and then see a motorcycle coming up from the wrong direction of a tunnel.

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

Wow, this is dangerous

driving...Oh, the motorcyclist

is in black...Oh, he uses

his motorcycle to block

cars getting into the tunnel.

Oh, where're the traffic

Police?

INT. PARK, LAGUNA CITY - DAY

Sunset. Many CHILDREN (not yet in their teens) play joyfully with their carers.

PETER (V.O.)

Having seen the wicked

ones today, it's really

refreshing to see the

young and innocent.

Peter checks a message.

PETER (V.O,) (Cont'd) The Police will take

a tougher stand from

today? Then they're in a better position to predict

the unpredictable!

FADE OUT. The End
