The jeeps continue up the increasingly winding roads. We are

in remote mountainous terrain now, no towns, barely any sign

of life.

9 I/E. JEEP. REFUGEE CAMP. DAY 9

Finally the jeeps turn and drive down a track. At the end a

small camp for refugees. They stop.

ROPER:

Here it is. Our little

contribution. A safe haven for the

wretched of the earth.

A small aid camp. Fifty miserable tents, a muddle of

refugees.

The Night Manager ep 5

Dogs are barking, barbed wire fences, a military compound,

soldiers at the checkpoint, ROPER’s own army training base in

the middle of the Turkish mountains.

JASPER double hits his horn, SOLDIERS see ROPER is inside and

let them through the barrier. The jeeps stop inside and

ROPER, PINE, JASPER and LANGBOURNE, FRISKY and TABBY all get

out.

ROPER:

Tabby take everyone’s phone, no

comms, no calls in or out. Get Mr

Birch some suitable gear. (to

JASPER) You clear the site all

JASPER:

ROPER turns to PINE.

ROPER:

You’re master of ceremonies. Make

sure you know what you’re selling.

He hands PINE a file. And ROPER heads out across the camp.

PINE watches him walk across the dust like Kurtz in his

jungle.
