Kaji: Up, Up And Away

FADE IN.


Act 1


INT. SITTING ROOM - NIGHT


KAJI looks perplexed.


KAJI (V.O.): Are we going out again?


FLASHBACK


INT. PET GARDEN - DAY


Kaiji is engaging her FRIENDS. A GANG MEMBER is watching them from a distance.


END FLASHBACK.


KAJI (V.O.) (Cont'd): Perhaps, I've a special mission this time.


EXT. ROAD - NIGHT

Extending her head out of the passenger-side window, Kaji sniffs the air and stares at the sky.


KAJI (V.O.): The scent around is unfamiliar. I wish I could fly up to the sky.


INT. CRUISE TERMINAL CAR PARK - NIGHT


Kaji, the PACK LEADER and PETER get out of their car.


ACT 2


INT. CRUISE TERMINAL CAR PARK - CONTINUOUS


They look around.


KAJI (V.O.): This place is huge. I've never been here.


Pausing.


KAJI (V.O.) (Cont'd): I can detect the smells of other dogs along the road. Let me take the lead.


Kaji finds the way.


A beat.


Waiting at a lift lobby, they see a door opening.


KAJI (V.O.) (Cont'd): Should we get in?


PETER & PACK LEADER : Step inside.


After their stepping in, the door closes. Kaji is circling around.


KAJI (V.O.) (Cont'd): It seems that we're being trapped inside this rectangular capsule.


Kaji sees things around her moving up.


KAJI (V.O.): What's happening?


We hear Peter and the pack leader talking: The first time she takes a lift nearly all by herself!


KAJI (V.O.) (Cont'd): Oh, the door opens again by itself.

Peter & PACK LEADER : Get out now.


Kaji gets out.


KAJI (V.O.) (Cont'd): I've a hunch what we'll do next would be adventurous.


They walk faster and faster.


EXT. RUNWAY PET GARDEN - NIGHT


The party arrive at the entrance.


KAJI (V.O.): Here we're! The strip is huge and long.


We see a big sign "13" on the ground and an aircraft in the vicinity.


KAJI (V.O.) (Cont'd): Oh my wings are ready. My dream can take flight!


As Kaji eyes turn skyward, FRIENDS come over to greet her.


Later, as a flashing ball is being thrown in the air, they begin chasing and jumping at it.


Kaji: I'm taxiing. Do I have permission to take off?


PETER: Shall we let go her leash?


PACK LEADER: Don't know if she'd runaway for good...you've to chase her.


PETER: We've to train her anyway.


Peter lets go the leash as they approach the aircraft.


KAJI (V.O.) (Cont'd): Romeo, I'm taking off...up, up and away!


Kaji jumps up in the air again and again.


Act 3


EXT. CRUISE TERMINAL PET GARDEN - NIGHT.


Kaji is leading Peter. The pack leader is far behind.


KAJI (V.O.) (Cont'd): Having tasted flight and landed, we'll get our car home. I know where it is.


INT. SITTING ROOM - NIGHT


Kaji is resting in the sofa.


KAJI (V.O.) (Cont'd): Having touched the sky, my soul is still there.


Kaji looks out of the window.


FADE OUT.

THE END
