Silence (2016)
Two 17th-century Portuguese missionaries, Father Sebastian Rodrigues (Andrew Garfield) and Father Francisco Garupe (Adam Driver), embark on a perilous journey to Japan to find their missing mentor (Liam Neeson). While there, the two men minister to the Christian villagers who worship in secret. If caught by feudal lords or ruling samurai, they must renounce their faith or face a prolonged and agonizing death.

1 EXT. UNZEN HOT SPRINGS DAY 1

The faces of FIVE MEN appear out of a thick cloud of mist

rising off a seething lake of boiling water. They look like

pale phantoms. Terrified.

We HEAR the voice of FATHER CHRISTOVAO FERREIRA. Strong.

Resolute.

FERREIRA (V.O.)

(reading)

"Good Friday, 1633. Pax Christi.

Praised be God. Although for us there

is little peace in this land now."

CUT TO:

2 EXT. UNZEN HOT SPRINGS DAY 2

Now we see FERREIRA. He is a Jesuit priest. A missionary. But

the look on his face does not match the reflective tone of the

voice we are hearing. He is troubled at something he sees. He

turns away...

...but two GUARDS, holding him, force him to look back. Vapors

of steam make them seem like creatures in a dream.

FERREIRA (V.O.)

(reading)

"I never knew Japan when it was a

country of light. But I have never

known it to be as dark as it is now.”

On those last words, Ferreira is pulled, through the steam,

into close-up. He struggles not to show the pain of what he

sees.

CUT TO:

3 EXT. UNZEN HOT SPRINGS DAY 3

The five men are surrounded by SAMURAI and various OFFICIALS.

Guards are pushing them forward. The five men are THREE

AUGUSTINIAN FRIARS, a FRANCISCAN FRIAR and a JAPANESE JESUIT

PRIEST.

FERREIRA(V.O.)

“All our progress has ended in new

persecution, new repression, new

suffering.

FERREIRA(V.O.) (cont'd)

The governor of Nagasaki first hoped

to destroy our Christian faith with

ridicule, and by example.”
