Kaji: To Begin

  1. FADE IN


  2. Act 1


  3. INT. HOME - DAY


  4. Sitting with the PACK LEADER on a sofa, KAJI sees Peter approaching.


  5. KAJI (V.O.): Judging from his lip movements, he's saying "Kai Kai". I'm excited!


  6. Kaji leaves the sofa to run around Peter.


  7. KAJI (V.O.) (Cont'd): Peter's cue lets me believe I'm into something good.


  8. Kaji circles Peter a few more times.


  9. KAJI (V.O.) (Cont'd): I'm anticipating fun activities soon.


  10. Kaji takes a look of the Pack Leader.


  11. KAJI (V.O.) (Cont'd): I'm feeling some unease as the Pack Leader remains sitting.


  12. As Kaji goes to her carrier cart, the Pack Leader gets up and Peter puts Kaji inside it.

  13. PETER: Fly.


  14. Act 2


  15. EXT. PAVEMENT - LATER


  16. As the Pack Leader puts Kaji onto it from the carrier cart, Peter says "Fly" again.


  17. KAJI (V.O.): I guess "fly" means moving through the air.


  18. Pausing.


  19. KAJI (V.O.) (Cont'd): I can move without lifting and settling down each foot in turn on the ground.


  20. Walking past a tree, Kaji sees birds flying up from the ground to the branches.


  21. KAJI (V.O.) (Cont'd): So they can also fly.


  22. EXT. PARADISE LOST - LATER


  23. Leading the Pack Leader and Peter, Kaji stops at the blocked entrance.


  24. KAJI (V.O.): I'm sure the entrance was here.


  25. Pausing.


  26. KAJI (V.O.) (Cont'd): As I can't get inside anymore, I still want to mark my former garden.


  27. Kaji pees without hesitation.


  28. KAJI (V.O.) (Cont'd): Let me take them to the promenade.


  29. EXT. PROMENADE - LATER


  30. Arriving, Kaji pees at will.


  31. KAJI (V.O.): Those are my "I was here" graffiti.

  32. Then, Kaji finds a green spot to get light.


  33. KAJI (V.O.) (Cont'd): I've to settle for the second best now.


  34. Having walked past a fountain, Kaji sees a few birds gathering on a stand amid a group of PEOPLE.


  35. KAJI (V.O.) (Cont'd): Why wouldn't they fly away?


  36. Observing.


  37. KAJI (V.O.) (Cont'd): Oh, their legs are chained.


  38. Kaji takes a look of her leash.


  39. KAJI (V.O.) (Cont'd): In my former garden, I could go here and there without the leash.


  40. Later, they arrive at a special garden. As the Pack Leader takes off Kaji's leash and Kaji finds herself sitting inside a circled opening, we hear Peter saying "Fly" again.


  41. KAJI (V.O.) (Cont'd): So I fly again.


  42. The Pack Leader and Peter begin to point their handheld device at Kaji.


  43. KAJI (V.O.) (Cont'd): They always like to point their things at me.


  44. Smiling


  45. KAJI (V.O.) (Cont'd): Anyhow, they don't seem to be angry with me anymore.


  46. FLASHBACK


  47. INT. BEDROOM - THE NIGHT BEFORE


  48. A GANG MEMBER is about to go to bed with Kaji.


  49. KAJI (V.O.): The Pack Leader and Peter aren't home. How come the gang member would take our bed?


  50. Kaji then pees in bed.


  51. END FLASHBACK


  52. Act 3


  53. EXT. STREETS - LATER


  54. Kaji, the Pack Leader and Peter leave the promenade.

  55. KAJI (V.O.): My peeing in bed didn't determine where I could go or fly now.


  56. Leading the Pack Leader and Peter, Kaji finds her way.


  57. KAJI (V.O.) (Cont'd): It only determines where I start. Let me explore something new.


  58. Kaji quickens her pace.


  59. KAJI (V.O.) (Cont'd): And the important step is to begin.


  60. FADE OUT


  61. THE END
