FADE IN:

EXT. COUNTRYSIDE - DAY

The end of Winter. SNOW blankets the landscape. A SMALL

STREAM rushes through the VALLEY. A clear, blue sky hangs over

the DISTANT MOUNTAINS adding to the beauty of the setting.

SUPER IMPOSE:
SCOTTISH LOWLANDS - 1665

The CAMERA begins to PAN. The color of the SNOW begins to

change, darkening from PURE WHITE to ASH GRAY, eventually to

COAL BLACK. We continue to pan until we arrive at..

EXT. VILLAGE - DAY

Plague. Once a charming settlement it is now ravaged by

disease. Everywhere BONFIRES burn, sending plumes of BLACK

SMOKE rising into the sky -- the ash and soot drift back down,

blackening the earth. VILLAGERS scurry about in tattered

clothing, their faces soiled by soot as they throw objects of

WOOD and CLOTH into the fires.

THREE HORSEMEN ride into the village. Two of them we can see

clearly as large, powerful men with savage faces. The THIRD

MAN'S man's face is hidden from us in the shadows of a black

HOODED CAPE. He dismounts, motioning for the other two to wait

for him.

The Hooded Man walks though the village. The SOUND of

HAMMERING fills the air as several VILLAGERS finish building a

make-shift GALLOWS.

CUT TO:

EXT. CHURCH - DAY

Built of stone it is already centuries old. A VILLAGER stands

guard at the entrance. The Hooded Man approaches and WHISPERS

something in the Villagers ear, then holds up a GOLD PIECE.

INT. CHURCH - DAY

Dark and musty, lit only by shafts of LIGHT which flow in

through the windows. The Hooded Man follows the Villager

across the stone floor until he reaches a WOODEN DOOR at the

back.

2

INT. STONE ROOM - DAY

No windows. The Hooded Man enters. In the center of the room

a CIRCLE has been drawn. Bordering the circle are hundreds of

CANDLES, forming a ring of fire. A MAN stands in the center,

his head bowed -- his weight supported by thick ROPES around

his wrists that are fastened to a wooden beam which runs the

length of the room.

HOODED MAN'S VOICE

Vieira...

VIEIRA looks up. He is old, his hair thin and gray, but his

eyes are alive, defiant. The Hooded Man moves closer. Vieira

follows him with his eyes, trying to see the Hooded Man's face.

Vieira strains against his ropes. The Hooded Man does not

move.

VIEIRA:

How comes it your are not afraid?

HOODED MAN:

Would'st you harm one who comes to

aid you?

Vieira's silence indicates he is listening.

HOODED MAN:

(continuing)

I've come to strike a bargain with

you. I wish to learn the power of

changing.

VIEIRA:

And what would'st I gain from this

bargain?

HOODED MAN:

(nonchalantly)

Your life.

VIEIRA:

How?

The Hooded Man slowly pulls back his hood. We see his face for

the first time. It is hard, brutal, his eyes cold and dark.

He grins -- a wicked grin.

HOODED MAN:

I have a magic of my own.

3

The Hooded Man removes a KNIFE from under his coat. He holds

it before Vieira, then he quickly stabs it into his chest. His

face fills with pain -- blood flows from the wound -- he falls

to his knees. A beat. He slowly looks up at Vieira as he

pulls the knife from his chest, then stands unharmed. Vieira

cannot believe what he has seen.
