One of Alex’s CO-WORKERS appears in the doorway, motioning to

him. Alex quickly hands Karen a card:

ALEX:

Here’s the address. Use the wall

chart if you need help -- and don’t

forget to bring a map.

Revisions (Blue) -- 1/26/04 7.

Karen looks at THE ADDRESS -- a string of thirty numbers and

Japanese characters. She glances up at

THE WALL CHART:
a color-coded diagram shows how the long

address string is broken down into Postal Code, Prefecture,

City, Ward, District, Block, Sub-Block and House Number.

ALEX:

Don’t worry Karen, you’re ready.

Karen nods. But she’s not quite as confident.

4a INT. RAIL STATION - DAY 4a

People rush madly around Karen as she studies A LARGE MAP on

the wall. It’s the Tokyo rail system -- daunting, at best.

4bb INT. TRAIN - DAY 4bb

Karen sits uncomfortably on the crowded transit car, squeezed

in tightly by the people around her. The LOUD CRYING of a

baby adds to her discomfort.

5 EXT. RAIL PLATFORM - DAY 5

The transit car pulls to a stop and a handful of people get

out. Karen is one of them, shouldering her backpack.

5a EXT. SHOPPING DISTRICT - DAY 5a

Karen walks down the populated sidewalk, weaving through

STREET VENDORS, and passing a large GROCERY STORE.

She pauses, looking at the address on her card. She

approaches a WOMAN and her DAUGHTER (6) and speaks to them in

Japanese. The woman nods, pointing towards a small ALLEY.

Karen gives the daughter a smile; the girl hides behind her

mother’s leg.

Revisions (Blue) -- 1/26/04 7A.

6 EXT. TOKYO NEIGHBORHOOD - DAY 6

Karen exits the alley, entering a quiet, narrow street.

She’s still not sure if she’s in the right place.

But then her eyes fix on something. She begins to walk

towards it, her gaze never leaving it -
