PROFESSOR:

Here the Good.. Here the Evil..

As the Priest looks up, Aziz the mirror boy, tips his mouth under the

water skin, drinking the leakage.

PROFESSOR:

Here..

He points to the Five Elements.

PROFESSOR:

A weapon against evil. Amazing! I am

going to be famous.

PRIEST:

Then let us toast to your fame! Here Billy..

The Priest hands Billy a cup.

PRIEST:

Drink!

PROFESSOR:

To fame.. salud..

The Professor raises the cup to drink, and then...

PROFESSOR:

We cannot toast with water.. Billy !

In my sack.. the Grappa!

The Priest watches, disconsolate, as the Professor tosses away his water.

Billy finishes his cup before running off into the tunnel.

4EXT. COLONNADE - DAY

A muffled SOUND grows steadily louder. Outside, a monstrous linear shadow

disturbs the kid's game and gradually darkens the temple entrance.

5INT. TUNNEL - DAY

Billy is looking for the grappa in the Professor's bag. He comes upon a

machine pistol. When the muffled SOUND suddenly grabs his attention. He

leans toward the corridor and sees part of a spaceship appear. Billy is

paralyzed.

6INT. TEMPLE ROOM - DAY

The Professor keeps reading over the inscription.

PROFESSOR:

"..this perfect person.. this perfect

being.." I do not understand this.. perfect?

PROFESSOR:

Where is that boy? Billy!

7INT. TUNNEL - DAY

Billy presses himself against the wall, in the shadows, terrified, but

sketching away like mad, as large shadowed figures lumber past him. He

begins to blink, feeling the effects of the Priest's potion..

8INT. TEMPLE ROOM - DAY

The Professor reads the wall.

PROFESSOR:

And this divine Light they talk

about.. what is Divine light?

At that moment, the reflection from Aziz's mirror drops again. The light

fails.

PROFESSOR:

(without turning)

Aziz light!
