The old Cook slides over the side as the enormous tanker

FLIPS OVER.

CUT TO:

WINDSHIELD WIPERS

Clearing at their highest speed, we see through the rain

doused windshield, DR. NIKO "NICK" TATOPOULOS. Music

blares from the tiny headphones of his Walkman.

NICK:

(singing)

...I'm singing in the rain, just

singing in the rain...

CUT TO:

10 INT. RUSSIAN TOWN - RAIN - DAY10

The utility van races through this small Russian town

right past a roadblock marked with the international

signs for "no trespass" and "nuclear radiation."

NICK:

..."What a glorious feeling. I'm happy

again..."

As the van disappears down the road, we CRANE UP

revealing a city sign reading: CHERNOBYL, RUSSIA.

11 EXT. CHERNOBYL DIRT PARK - RAIN - DAY11

With the infamously crippled nuclear power plant in the

distance, the utility van slides to a muddy stop by this

field of dirt.

Nick hops out quickly and rushes to the back of the van.

He opens the back of the van and grabs several metallic

cases.

Walking a few yards away from the van, he dumps the

cases on the ground, opening them to REVEAL an

assortment of sophisticated scientific equipment.

Taped to the inside are several photos of a girl we'll

meet later. Some of the photos are of her looking young

and beautiful. Others are of the two of them happily

together.

With a switch he turns on the equipment which comes to

life. Inside one of the cases are several cables

attached to long SPIKES. He grabs them and dashes away.

NICK:

..."I'm laughing at clouds, so dark up

above..."

Nick rushes over to a small patch of land and begins to

SHOVE the spikes into the muddy earth.
