A New World episode 3 : THE NEW WORLD Page #2

Season #1 Episode #3
Synopsis: The story of "The Lost Book of Enki" revolves around the ancient Sumerian gods known as the Anunnaki, who arrived on KI to mine gold and were responsible for creating a civilization. Enki, one of the Anunnaki, is the main protagonist and is depicted as a wise and cunning god who often clashes with his jealous and power-hungry half-brother Enlil. Enki is also enamored with his half-sister Ninmah, who is envious of her brothers' power and resents being left out of their inner circle. The story follows Enki's attempts to navigate the complex power dynamics of the Anunnaki while also trying to protect his new creation from Enlil's wrath. A true template of human existence exploring the darkest recesses of the human psyche, offering a chilling glimpse into the depths of our collective unconscious. An admission detailing the dangers of jealousy and envy, the ethical implications of playing god, and the consequences of seeking power at all costs.

Scene 9

The camera zooms out revealing LALUZ, M.ANU, and their grandson MARDUK in the throne room. MARDUK is playing and running around the throne room, his reaction is not shown.

EA (voiceover) :

LALUZ WAS THE KING; HE TREATED M.ANU AS A SERVANT.

LALUZ (authoritative) : M.ANU, POUR ME A CUP OF WATER.

M.ANU bows and pours water into a cup before handing it to LALUZ. The camera focuses on a stoic M.ANU as he hears LALUZ. LALUZ smiles as he speaks.

LALUZ (condescending): I HAVE GIVEN THE AIR COMMANDER DUTIES TO MY SON, LULU. I WANT YOU BY MY SIDE AT ALL TIMES. (pauses) YOU SEE, M.ANU? THIS IS YOUR PLACE. YOU ARE A WONDERFUL SERVANT.

M.ANU, stands and walks away. As M.ANU walks away, the camera follows him and we see the pain and frustration on his face. He knows that he is more than just a servant, but he is bound to his duty to the king. He takes a deep breath and composes himself, knowing that he must continue to serve with loyalty and honor.

LALUZ (with hidden disdain): M.ANU, I HAVE BEEN THINKING ABOUT WHAT YOU SAID. PERHAPS I HAVE BEEN TOO HARSH ON YOU.

I APPRECIATE YOUR WORDS, MY LORD.

LALUZ (with hidden disdain): YOU ARE NOT JUST A CUPBEARER. YOU ARE THE FATHER OF EA, AND THAT GIVES YOU A SPECIAL PLACE IN OUR KINGDOM. FROM NOW ON, I WILL TREAT YOU WITH THE RESPECT YOU DESERVE.

M.ANU (humbled):
THANK YOU, MY LORD. YOUR WORDS MEAN A LOT TO ME. I KNOW I CAN ASSIST WITH THE FORMULATING . . .  

LALUZ (interrupts authoritatively): M.ANU! DO NOT FORGET YOUR PLACE! !  YOU ARE STILL A SERVANT. (exhausted) BRING ME A GLASS OF WINE.

Scene 12

The camera focuses on his face, his eyes flicker with conflicting emotions as he ponders his role and allegiance. He mutters to himself, almost as if seeking reassurance.

M.ANU (to himself): I UNDERSTAND THE DEPTH OF MY CAPABILITIES AND THE SIGNIFICANCE OF MY POSITION. BUT ABOVE ALL, MY LOYALTY LIES WITH THE KING.
