A shot of BASTION

JAMES:

Now please don't tell me we've got the

only medic who can't stand the sight

of blood.

MOLLY:

Bashira, that's a lovely name. I'm

Molly.

Smurf looks at Molly and Bashira with dislike.

BASHIRA:

Molly?

SMURF:

That kid is spotting for the Taliban

and reporting back.

Gun shots go off and everyone ducks.

NUDE-NUT

Man down!

KINDERS:

That's Smurf!

MOLLY:

Sir, he's losing blood. I can get to

him.

Molly's foot knocks an IED. She is thrown into the air as it

explodes.

NUDE-NUT (OOV)

Molly!

SMURF:

I was a dickhead. I'm telling you, I've

learnt a big lesson. I'm gonna come back

to you.

Well done Dawes.

MOLLY:

Thank you Sir.

You're an excellent medic. You're

proving yourself.

00:32 EXT. AFGHAN VILLAGE.

Close on Molly as she hurries through the bustling Afghan village.

We see the colourful market stalls set up and people going about

their business. We don't know where or what Molly is hurrying

to, but the atmosphere feels tense.

We see the locals staring at her, puzzled. Young men make comments

in Pashto about a western woman hurrying through their village

on her own. But Molly is focused on where she is heading and there

is a sense of urgency to her mission.

Suddenly she calls out.

MOLLY:

Bashira.

Bashira turns smiling to Molly. Molly has a scarf in her hands

and she holds it out to Bashira.

MOLLY (CONT'D)

(handing it to Bashira)

You dropped this at the market. I've

been chasing you!

Bashira smiles and puts on her scarf.

BASHIRA:

Thank you.

MOLLY:

(with a friendly smile)

That's alright. It's what we're here

for.

BASHIRA:

Sang Chill Bazi?

Bashira shows her the pebbles she is holding and beams.

MOLLY:

Yeah. Sang Chill Bazi!

Bashira offers a pebble for Molly to have a go at the game - similar

to Jacks. Molly crouches down to play with Bashira. The locals

and some ANA soldiers watch Molly with disapproving looks.

MOLLY (CONT'D)

Come on then. Right, last time you beat

me so this time the revenge is mine!

Right..

Molly lobs the pebble in the air and quickly tries to scoop up

the remaining four pebbles on the ground. She can't do it and

they both laugh a little.

MOLLY (CONT'D)

I'm rubbish at this.

Bashira does it with ease. Molly takes out some sweets from her

pocket and offers one to Bashira.

MOLLY (CONT'D)

Ahhh, you beat me again! I tell you what,

the winner gets a sweet.

Molly goes into her pocket as they stand up and pulls out a sweet

and hands it to Bashira.

MOLLY (CONT'D)

These are pang. My mum sends these from

London.

BASHIRA:

Pang?

Of course Bashira can't understand but Molly's tone is gentle

and friendly and Bashira knows this. Molly takes a few more out

of her pocket and puts them in Bashira's pocket.

MOLLY:

Take these for Ron.

Bashira looks confused.

MOLLY (CONT'D)

Later... Ron!

Bashira looks even more confused but smiles.

MOLLY (CONT'D)

I'm teaching you proper good English

here, Bashira. See, me and you, we're

soul sistas!
