Kaji: Building Trust

  1. FADE IN

  2. Act 1


  4. KAJI is sitting inside a carrier cot near the front door.

  5. KAJI (V.O.): Every time I'm "flown" up here, we'll go out soon.

  6. Waiting, Kaji watches every move of the PACK LEADER and PETER.

  7. KAJI (V.O.) (Cont'd): They're getting prepared.


  9. Inside the carrier cot, Kaji's eyes scan the surroundings.

  10. KAJI (V.O.): Good, it's a trip to the park, not to my hairdresser.

  11. As the Pack Leader lifts Kaji out of the cot, we hear Peter saying: Fly.

  12. KAJI (V.O.) (Cont'd): Flying is very safe.

  13. Having done whole-body shakes on the ground, Kaji leads the way.

  14. Act 2


  16. Arriving, we hear Peter saying "Wait!". Kaji slows down her pace.

  17. KAJI (V.O.): Waiting is tough, especially when I see some who can't wait.

  18. They wait with other PEDESTRIANS.

  19. KAJI (V.O.) (Cont'd): I always obey Peter's command...

  20. We see cars using the road.

  21. KAJI (V.O.) (Cont'd): Not because I've to be obedient but because I trust his judgment.

  22. When the green man appears in the light post, Peter says "Go!".

  23. KAJI (V.O.) (Cont'd): I can go now!

  24. Quickly, they cross the crossing with other pedestrians.


  26. Serene with greenery. Kaji rushes to her favourite spots.

  27. KAJI (V.O.): I'm never tired with exploring this place.

  28. Having satisfied with one, Kaji gets light.

  29. KAJI (V.O.) (Cont'd): The Pack Leader would follow up.

  30. We see the Pack Leader cleaning up the mess.

  31. PACK LEADER: Do you want to go up to the veranda?

  32. KAJI (V.O.): No, it's tiring to climb the stairs.

  33. Pausing.

  34. KAJI (V.O.) (Cont'd): I'll take you to where you want to go.

  35. As Kaji begins to walk in the direction of a mall, the Pack Leader blocks her way.

  36. KAJI (V.O.) (Cont'd): You don't want to go there?

  37. Pausing.

  38. KAJI (V.O.)(Cont'd): You like to buy takeaway drinks there before we go home.

  39. The Pack Leader continues to block Kaji's way.

  40. KAJI (V.O.) (Cont'd): That isn't fair, I'm just acting based on the cues you've given mr in the past.

  41. Pausing.

  42. KAJI (V.O.) (Cont'd): How can I read your mind?

  43. Pausing.

  44. KAJI (V.O.) (Cont'd): If we walk in the opposite direction, it means that we're heading home.

  45. Pausing.

  46. KAJI (V.O.) (Cont'd): But we've come out for a short while...

  47. We hear Peter saying "Kai Kai!".

  48. KAJI (V.O.) (Cont'd): Ah, that's the cue that we aren't going home yet.

  49. Revitalized, Kaji walks along with the Pack Leader and Peter energetically.

  50. PACK LEADER (to Peter): We'll go home via the estate's back door. See if she'd remember it...

  51. Later, they arrive at the back door and Kaji can't wait to get inside.

  52. Act 3


  54. Kaji settles down in her comfortable spot.

  55. KAJI (V.O.): Trust starts with truth.

  56. The Pack Leader comes to pat Kaji's head.

  57. KAJI (V.O.) (Cont'd): Trust is built in tiny moments every day and night.

  58. Then, Peter gives Kaji a gentle stroke on her back.

  59. KAJI (V.O.)(Cont'd): Building trust reassures meaningful connections, deeper intimacy.

  60. FADE OUT

  61. THE END
