Kaji: Absolute Happiness

  1. FADE IN


  2. Act 1


  3. INT. HOME - DAY


  4. Sitting on a sofa, KAJI looks out of the window.


  5. KAJI (V.O.): I can feel some uncomfortable changes.


  6. Pausing.


  7. KAJI (V.O.) (Cont'd): I sense that today won't be a fine day.

  8. Seeing food on the table later, Kaji joins the PACK LEADER and the GANG.


  9. KAJI (V.O.) (Cont'd): Eat therapy is fine.


  10. PACK LEADER (to Gang): Do you think our Babe would like to go out today?


  11. Recalling.


  12. KAJI (V.O.) (Cont'd): Yesterday at the promenade, I was a little naughty...


  13. Act 2


  14. FLASHBACK


  15. EXT. PROMENADE - YESTERDAY


  16. Leading the Pack Leader and PETER, Kaji finds her favourite spot and poops without delay.


  17. KAJI (V.O.): I sensed that we're going out today and so I didn't poop at home.


  18. Then, they hear squeaky sounds.


  19. KAJI (V.O.): Are they from my prey?


  20. Then, they see SOMEONE taking pictures for a COUPLE and a KID.


  21. KAJI (V.O.) (Cont'd): It seems that the kid is responsive to the sounds too.


  22. Reacting.


  23. KAJI (V.O.) (Cont'd): I feel the urge to find my prey first.


  24. On a leash, Kaji runs into the family. The Pack Leader follows reluctantly.


  25. PACK LEADER: No, we're bothering the family's photo-taking session.


  26. As Kaji insists on intruding, the Pack Leader carries Kaji away from the family.


  27. KAJI (V.O.): But I haven't done my job yet...


  28. Later, when Kaji is allowed to be on her own again, we hear the same squeaking sounds again.


  29. KAJI (V.O.) (Cont'd): I must go and silence my prey.


  30. Having run into the family again, the Pack Leader carries Kaji from the family once again.


  31. RETURN TO PRESENT


  32. Retreating to a sofa later, the Pack Leader and the Gang focus on colourful moving images on a big screen.


  33. KAJI (V.O.) (Cont'd): They seldom do that as they're always on the move, even without me.


  34. Kaji looks out of the window.


  35. KAJI (V.O.) (Cont'd): What's happening outside is bothering me.


  36. Pausing.


  37. KAJI (V.O.) (Cont'd): Black clouds have already conquered the Sun.


  38. We hear thunders.


  39. KAJI (V.O.) (Cont'd): They're very loud and clear to me.


  40. Kaji goes to sit on Peter's lap.


  41. PETER: She's trembling.


  42. KAJI (V.O.) (Cont'd): I feel the sky tumbling down.


  43. Trembling.


  44. KAJI (V.O.) (Cont'd): Is this the beginning of the end?


  45. Kaji observes the Pack Leader and the Gang.


  46. KAJI (V.O.) (Cont'd): I don't know why they remain amazingly calm...


  47. Trembling.


  48. KAJI (V.O.) (Cont'd): Trembling is my cue to them of imminent danger.


  49. Pausing.


  50. KAJI (V.O.) (Cont'd): But they still don't get it!


  51. Act 3


  52. INT. HOME - CONTINUOUS


  53. KAJI (V.O.) (Cont'd): On a fine day, just a simple walk outside is pleasurable.


  54. Pausing.


  55. KAJI (V.O.) (Cont'd): On a rainy day, no one mind staying in a dry, nice and warm place.


  56. Pausing.


  57. KAJI (V.O.) (Cont'd): My idea of absolute happiness now is to be with the Pack Leader and the Gang at home.

  58. Seeing the vacant massage chair, Kaji takes it.


  59. FADE OUT


  60. THE END
