A New World episode 5 : MASTER OF THE WATERS Page #2

Season #1 Episode #5
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.

MA.RA (Elite English accent)(firmly) M.ANU, THIS UNION IS UNACCEPTABLE. YOU MUST DIVORCE NIN.UL IMMEDIATELY.

M.ANU's face turns from joy to confusion, his brows furrowing as he looks at the scroll.

M.ANU (confused): BUT WHY, MOTHER?

MA.RA (Elite English accent)(resolutely): THIS FAMILY TREE REPRESENTS OUR LINEAGE, OUR BLOODLINE. IT CARRIES THE WEIGHT OF GENERATIONS AND LEGACIES. NIN.UL'S PRESENCE DISRUPTS THE CAREFULLY WOVEN THREADS OF OUR FAMILY'S HISTORY.

M.ANU'S eyes widen with realization, but he refuses to back down.

M.ANU (defiantly but full of respect) : MOTHER, I UNDERSTAND THE SIGNIFICANCE OF OUR LINEAGE, BUT LOVE SHOULD NOT BE SACRIFICED FOR THE SAKE OF TRADITION. NIN.UL AND I LOVE EACH OTHER DEEPLY, AND OUR UNION SHOULD BE HONORED.

MARA's expression hardens, her voice taking on a colder tone.

MA.RA (Elite English accent)(coldly) : LOVE ALONE CANNOT SUSTAIN A KINGDOM, M.ANU. THE BURDEN OF LEADERSHIP AND THE EXPECTATIONS PLACED UPON YOU DEMAND SACRIFICE. YOU MUST THINK OF THE GREATER GOOD AND THE STABILITY OF OUR REALM.

M.ANU's face displays a mixture of determination and sadness.

M.ANU (earnestly) : MOTHER, I CANNOT ABANDON THE WOMAN I LOVE, NOR THE CHILD WE ARE BRINGING INTO THIS WORLD. I BELIEVE OUR LOVE CAN COEXIST WITH OUR RESPONSIBILITIES. WE CAN FORGE A NEW PATH, ONE THAT UPHOLDS BOTH OUR LOVE AND OUR DUTY.

MA.RA's gaze softens slightly, her voice carrying a hint of sadness.

MA.RA (Elite English accent)(regretfully) : M.ANU, I FEAR YOU DO NOT FULLY GRASP THE CONSEQUENCES OF YOUR ACTIONS.(0:30)

Scene 9

Mara and Her Children :

The camera cuts to a series of close-up shots, we see MARA and her children having a conversation while they are shown their family tree. MALISA is noticeably untroubled, NIN.ITA noticeably distant, and M.ANU stoic and remains that way from this day forth. MARA's voice remains firm as she explains, pointing to a specific branch and names on the scroll.

Scene 10

The camera focuses on a picture of EN.URU, 13, Shiny white skin and blue eagle eyes with long braided blond hair and a short beard without a mustache. Wings. Standing at an impressive height of 7 feet and weighing 250 pounds, EN.URU possesses a distinct appearance and his physical presence commands attention.

EA (voiceover):

A THRILL-SEEKER AND ATHLETIC INDIVIDUAL, WHOSE PRESENCE EXUDES A SENSE OF ADVENTURE AND DARING. AT THE AGE OF 12, EN.URU FACED A SIGNIFICANT LOSS WHEN M.AN.KI, HIS OLDER BROTHER, PASSED AWAY. DESPITE THE GRIEF, EN.URU CONTINUED TO EMBODY A SPIRIT OF RESILIENCE AND DETERMINATION. (his story is told in season 2)
