EL LIL' MAGO (CONT’D)

...Four, five. Five... Five and

half... Six...

He is knocked again and again, all he can do is protect his

face.

EL LIL' MAGO (CONT’D)

...nine, ten, eleven, eleven...

twelve.

El Casper looks at El Lil' Mago, waiting for “thirteen.” The

Boy’s face is cut and his left eyelid sags. El Casper only

halfheartedly punches him now.

EL LIL' MAGO (CONT’D)

Twelve.

El Casper feels El Lil' Mago glaring at him, so he launches a

kick into the boys chest. The boy YELPS as El Casper kicks

him over and over.

EL LIL' MAGO (CONT’D)

Thirteen.

El Casper finally stops, breathing heavily. Despite his

tears, whimpers and quivering body, the Boy forms a smile --

a crying smile.

El Lil' Mago pulls him up. The men HOLLER as they rush in,

throwing Mara Salvatrucha (MS13) gang signs (”M” then “S”

shapes with their hands) and stacking those with their

clica’s name “CONFETI LOCOS” in a form of sign-language.

They hug him.

EL LIL' MAGO (CONT’D)

Look at this kid, Casper, he’s all

smiles.

4 EXT. COLONIA STAIRWAY - TEGUCIGALPA, HONDURAS - DAY 4

SUPER:
TEGUCIGALPA, HONDURAS

We see a large expanse of the capitol and its foothills. A

city covered with colorful homes, patches of tropical green

and smog.

On the bottom of the frame THREE ADOLESCENT GIRLS make their

way up a long set of stairs towards us, sharing a cigarette.

SAYRA, 15, an olive-skinned girl with long hair and bright

eyes stands between CLARISSA and YAMILA.

CLARISSA:

You’re so lucky, Sayra.

(BEAT)

If my Dad came back to take me

north with him...

SAYRA:

Mine didn’t, he was deported.

CLARISSA:

And? At least he can make the

journey with you, instead of paying

a pervy pollero to take you.
