Kaji: Are You Lonely?


FADE IN.


Act 1


INT. SITTING ROOM - DAY


Waking up on a sofa, KAJI sees the PACK LEADER approaching.


PACK LEADER: It's Kai-Kai time again!


KAJI becomes alert.


KAJI (V.O.): Oh, I don't need to sleep away my time? Good, no one want to be lonely.


Pausing.


KAJI (V.O.) (Cont'd): Whenever they leave home without me, I feel bad.


Pausing.


KAJI (V.O.) (Cont'd): My maid, Peter, the pack leader and recently a gang member would come back.


The pack leader helps Kaji wear the harness.


KAJI (V.O.) (Cont'd): Do we walk or drive there?


ACT 2


EXT. ROAD - DAY


Kaji sits on the lap of the pack leader as PETER drives.


PETER: Should I open the window for our baby?


PACK LEADER: No, our children don't approve it.


KAJI (V.O.): Oh, I haven't seen two gang members for a long while. I remember they left home with big suitcases.


Pausing.


KAJI (V.O.) (Cont'd): When the pack leader doesn't talk about them, I don't expect to see them...Suddenly, my feeling has become mixed.


Pausing.


KAJI (V.O.): Are they lonely if they're alone somewhere?


KAJI looks out of the car window.


KAJI (V.O.) (Cont'd) : We're arriving.


EXT. PET GARDEN - DAY


Kaji leads the pack leader and Peter inside.


KAJI (V.O.): So quiet. No one's here. The whole garden's mine.


Scratching the grass with her legs, Kaji chooses her favourite spots to obey the calls of nature.


KAJI (V.O.) (Cont'd): What a relief. I feel so good. What's next?


Pausing.


KAJI (V.O.) (Cont'd): I've forgotten I'm here all alone...


Seeing the pack leader and Peter sitting on a bench, Kaji jumps up to sit next to them.


KAJI (V.O.) (Cont'd): Yes, I need companionship.


Both pack leader and Peter stare at Kaji.


PETER: She looks bored.


PACK LEADER: It's quite a surprise that her friends aren't here.


PETER: is it because of the pandemic?


Act 3


We hear some sounds at the entry gates.


KAJI (V.O.): Ah, someone is coming...


Jumping down the bench, Kaji runs to the entrance. We see a black-and-white SHEPHERD and his CARERS appearing.


KAJI (V.O.) (Cont'd): He's big. But we might have something in common.


Kaji plays host.


KAJI: Are you lonely?


Sniffing.


KAJI (V.O.) (Cont'd): No worry. Just come and play with me.


They begin chasing each other.


FADE OUT.

THE END
