Cupid


FADE IN.

INT. SLEEPING ROOM - DAY

IPadmini in hand, Peter taps the iMovie icon and begins to edit a film.

PETER (V.O.)

I've done the audio.

Let me use the

captured moments

in Hokkaido in early

February as the video.

Peter focuses on his editing.

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

I was in Chitose,

Sapporo, Otaru and

then back in Sapporo

and Chitose. Let me

follow that sequence.

Checking the re-edited film.

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

I flew from New Chitose

to Haneda. Bought

something at Ashibara

before going to Narita.

But I was so busy that

I didn't have the time

to shoot any video

until I boarded my

homeward bound flight.

Reflecting.

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

Although it was my

early February trip,

it seemed a long time.

A lot of things have

happened because

of the COVID-19.

Reflecting.

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

And personally, a

disputant hired a

killer to take my

life and harm my

family if I decided

the dispute not in

the disputant's favour.

Pausing.

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

I've done what I've to

do to strike back. To

let wicked bother me

is stupid.

Finishing his draft, Peter renames the music video as: "Cupid".

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

As the music-video is

meant to celebrate

Valentine's Day, the

ending shot should be

a bunch of red roses.

INT. SUPERMARKET - DAY

Floral section. Selecting a rose bouquet, Peter looks pleased.

PETER (V.O.)

My wife expects to get

it - and a little thing I

do once in a year.

INT. BATHROOM - DAY

After taking a shot of the rose bouquet with his iPadmini, Peter re-edits Cupid.

PETER (V.O.)

Done!

INT. SITTING ROOM - DAY

iPadmini in hand, Peter taps the screen to upload and share his music video "Cupid".

PETER (V.O.)

Many are home-

working these days.

They should get

something to cheer

them up.

Checking his chat groups on screen, Peter begins to see some thumbs up icons.

INT. SEASIDE RESTAURANT - NIGHT

As Peter, his WIFE and KAJI , their pet, are having dinner; Peter is still having screen time.

PETER (V.O.)

Oh, here's the latest

notification of the

University Council

meeting. The Secretariat

worked until the

evening and wishing

everyone a nice

weekend.

Thinking.

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

Let me reply in noting

the notice and including

my Valentine music-

video to cheer people

up!

After taping his phone screen a couple of times, Peter looks pleased. Then we see and hear Peter's song: Cupid.

PS

CUPID

(Translation of the Cantonese Lyrics)

(Verse)

"How much love," ask I.

"have I sowed?"

"Counting it," says Sky.

"I'd turn old."

(Pre-chorus)

"Way too much!"

(We hear just guitar riffs.)

(Chorus)

Romantic lovers

- a story told.

Love is stronger

Than gold.

There's no rule -

to do anything to please me,

if your heart stays true

to me.

Loving each other

isn't bargaining.

Feeling your partner

You can't help falling...

Love Cupid is...

the most blessed -

firing as many arrows

as he pleases!

Peter smiles like an old cupid without wings.

PETER (V.O.)

I fire arrows of love to people fairly.

FADE OUT.

The End
