7 EXT. AFGHAN VILLAGE - DAY 7

INTERCUT AFGHAN VILLAGE. Intro Afghan warlord. AHMAD SHAH.

35 years old. Tall, strong. Fierce. He moves through anAfghan village with a small pack of equally fierce Talibanwarriors.

4.

LOCAL AFGHANS avoid eye contact. This Shah and crew feelslike an old school western bad guy moving through a cow town.

NOTHING like the SUICIDE BOMBERS of BAGDAD. These are real

warriors. Strong-jawed. Thin but ripped muscles. Worn rich

soulful faces, vivid eyes, color reds and blues. Strong

boots. Military vests. Good radio equipment. Well-maintained

weapons.

Shah’s number two is TARAQ. Late twenties. Shah is vicious,

TARAQ, is more vicious. Strong and very, very violent.

A very worthy opponent.

RIGHT now they are clearly pissed. Shah leads the way, walks

with purpose.

They are looking for a man. Someone has violated TALIBAN LAW,

accused of aiding the Americans.

Shah moves into a house. Women and children terrified.

Trembling. Women pleading.

SHAH SHAH:

Where is he?Hagha Cherta Dey?

The women scream. As Shah starts throwing teenage boys aroundthe room. Slamming them viciously into walls.

A 25-year-old man Gulab tries to reason with Shah. A YOUNG

BOY watches.

GULAB GULAB:

Please, we want no trouble. Mehrabani/lutfan, monga hes

mushkil no ghowaro

Taraq throws Gulab down hard. Turns, locks eyes with an olderAfghan man(30s). Taraq moves quickly at him, kicking him inthe face, his foot down hard on his throat.
