The Debt script
The Debt (2010)
Synopsis: In 1965, young Mossad agent Rachel Singer (Jessica Chastain) and two comrades (Sam Worthington, Marton Csokas) are involved in a secret mission to capture a Nazi war criminal known as the Surgeon of Birkenau (Jesper Christensen). The mission ends with the man's death on the streets of East Berlin. Thirty years later, a man claiming to be the doctor has appeared, and Rachel (Helen Mirren), haunted by memories of past events, must return to Eastern Europe to uncover the truth.

Rachel stares back at him in silence.

Sarah appears behind the boy, her son, and scoops him up

into a hug. Still the boy stares at his grandmother, who

gives a tight smile and turns back to the sea.

Another guest walks up to Sarah and she nods, smiling, at

what he is saying to her but her eyes slide back to her

mother, standing on the other side of the glass.

8 1NT/EXT. APARTMENT BLOCK. TEL AVIV SUBURB - DAY 8

A shabby, dimly-lit stairwell in a run-down section of the

city.

A YOUNG MOSSAD AGENT knocks at one of the apartment doors.

After a moment it is answered by OLDER DAVID, now 62.

YOUNG AGENT:

David Peretz?

DAVID:

Yes.

YOUNG AGENT:

You were expecting me?

David looks at this young version of himself.

DAVID:

Yes. I was expecting you.

YOUNG AGENT:

Would you come with me sir?

David stares at him, then walks back into the apartment.

The door almost swings shut and the Agent catches it,

considering walking in after him. But before he can, David

re-emerges carrying his jacket.

DAVID:

Let’s go.

TITLES BEGIN:

We TRACK with David, CLOSE on his face as the two men begin

the long walk down the staircase.

He doesn’t say anything to his companion, doesn’t look

around him, and we HOLD on that face as his mind tries to

catch up, tries to work something out, to decide...

9 EXT. STREET - CONTINUOUS 9

The apartment block stands on stilts. Abandoned furniture

is piled around the columns supporting the building.

Still on David as the two men walk out from the darkness

into the street that services the run-down estate. David

follows as the agent moves ahead towards a larger road.
