Enemy Empire

Synopsis: Sol, a charming fugitive with a robotic arm, crashes through a vast desert empire filled with deadly larger-than-life enemies on his quest for revenge. His only chance of survival is with the help of an uncooperative nomadic woman. This ultra-micro budget guerrilla-style movie is an upbeat post-apocalyptic comedy adventure.

(dramatic music)

(gasping, snap)

Woah, woah, new idea.

You surrender to me.

It's just one option.

But what if instead of that, you run home

to the city, and on your way you tell

all the other scout teams that I died.

That will put me at ease.

Just hand it over.

Come on, what have you got?

Don't you wanna live out here in this

glorious Empire and serve The Nomads?


That's the deal Catherine made.


She's probably selling city secrets

to The Nomad King in his bed right now!


(action music)


Scout Team Seven to Control,

Scout Team Seven to Control!

[Control] Team Seven, what's your location?

Nomad outpost!

[Control] What's the situation?

The situation's bad, we found Sol!

- Scout down...

- [Control] Wait, wait,

shut up, shut up, what's your situation?

Scout down, request backup.

[Control] Which outpost,

I need your exact location.

Come in Team Ten, what's happening?

Team... (crunch)

(arm whirring)

(powering down)


(music intensifies)

You might wanna fix that arm.

I don't need it to kill you.


[Scout] These Nomads were ruthless people.

Mad like you, watch what they did.


(machine running)

This is gonna hurt!


Turn it off, and I won't kill you.


If you slide this back in,

can that arm break that chain?


How bad is Sun Disease?

I can't imagine this being the

last face you see before you die.


What a horrible way to die.

You know, I'm disappointed.

They said you were clever and dangerous.


(banging, clanking)


(dramatic music)

This is a horrible way to die.

(phone ringing)


[Caller] Who is this?

I'm with Scout Team Seven...

[Caller] One of the teams looking for Sol?

Yes, but you shouldn't worry

about him anymore, he isn't a problem.

The mission was very successful.

[Caller] Who is this?

Do you know if there's any way

to turn off the giant torture machine?

A funny thing happened.

[Caller] Cleo isn't there?

Cleo, no, Cleo's away at the moment.

So this machine...

[Caller] You tell her the deal is off.

(dial tone)

That was the most useless

conversation I've ever had in my life.

(machine whirring)

(tribal music)


Hello, hello?

I don't suppose you know who that was.

What did they say?

Can I have some assistance?

Maybe, answer my question.


They asked for Cleo and

said the deal was off.

Not much of a

conversationalist, are you Cleo?

You stole my call!

Half the world's dead, look where we are,

and I get my call stolen?

What are the odds?

Perhaps they're regrettably

higher than you might expect.

This is just funny.

Ahhh, I fail to see the humor, Senorita.

Can you hand me that bolt over there?

What are you supposed to be?

Please give me the bolt, it's right there.

Just hand me that bolt, get

the bolt, please, right there.

You've got Sun Disease.

Why didn't you protect your eyes?

You must not be from around here.

Just kick the bolt in my direction!

It's looks like you've got

steel in there, that's rare.

Did someone from Paradise

City make that for you?

Ahhh, lady, give me the bolt!

Well for that we'll have

to work out an exchange.

Afraid I don't do favors

for inconsiderate people.

I apologize for skipping the social

niceties of introductions, I would

love to learn more about

you, you seem like a

very interesting person, but if you don't

give me that bolt, I'm going to die!

Well obviously you're gonna die.

Horrifically from the looks of things.

How can a bolt help you?

I'll show you!


What will you trade me for it?

Maybe you can tell me how to

find your friend from Paradise.


(banging, clanking)

I came from Paradise.

I can get you inside if you want.

You're from Paradise?


Huh, how would you get me in?

It's hidden, no one on the

outside knows how to find it.

I do, I stole an access

card, I can give it to you.

An access card?


It's a Presidential key.

It opens any city gate,

you can walk right in.

And right back out?

Sure, what, are you planning a robbery?

My plans really aren't your concern.

(arm powering up)


Well thank you, lead on.

(suspenseful music)





[Cleo] Give me the card.

What can you trade me for it?

A bullet.

Listen Senorita, I don't usually

kill women, but for you,

I might make an exception.


That was your last shot, wasn't it?

Would I still be standing here if it was?

I don't know.

Why is the card so important

to you that you'd break our deal?

I thought you'd be honorable.

Honorable is just a word people

give you when you do what they want.

And I didn't promise you anything.


I can't give you the card because

I need it to trade to The

Nomad King for a woman.

Named Catherine.

Who is she to you?


What's Paradise to you?


If you give the King an access card

to the city, he'll go and destroy it.

She's worth it.

I don't help other people, Senorita,

so either go away or kill me.

Ooof, ahhh!


(machine whirring)

(gasping, buzzing)

We done with this fight now?


So, you clever enough to get Catherine

without this, or will

you try to steal it back?

Nah, it's yours.

I can still get her, it'll just be harder.

You know how to get to the King?


You show me how to get to him,

I'll tell you how to get into Paradise.



What's your name anyway?


Nice to meet you.

(action music)

[Sol] If this is one of The Nomad Army's

abandoned storage outposts,

why are we sneaking up to it?

Are we supposed to be frightened

of Warriors and Invisibles, and what else?

Not... did you see that?


I didn't see anything.

Yeah, well how reliable is your eyesight?

Look, Sun Disease would drive me crazy.

If every time I looked at other

people's faces I saw my own?

No thank you.

Does it happen with everyone you look at?

Do I look like you to you?

Yes, everybody looks like me to me,

but I can read your

face, you can't lie to me.

I never lie.

Are you up for this?

Nobody can stop me from getting to her.

Including Creatures.



[Sol] What the hell is

wrong with this individual?

Cleo, shoot it!

(arm powering down)


What, you're out of bullets?!

You said you weren't out of bullets!

I never said that!

It was a direct implication.

I thought you could read my face,

you're an arrogant bastard.

Oh don't you criticize me!

Don't yell at me!

I'm not yelling at you!

Yes you are!

(grunting, snarling)


Some help you are.

I don't believe this.

You don't want to point a weapon

at someone if you can't use it anyway.

(arm powering up)

You'd better listen to

me next time I tell you...

(arm powering down)

Don't do that.

Why didn't you kill him? (arm powering up)

He didn't know what he was doing.

It isn't their fault, they're mad.

The world is lonely and quiet enough,
