Prisoner X

Synopsis: On a cold February night, a young man is found unconscious at the wheel of a crashed vehicle in Montana not far from the Canadian border and a lump of weapons-grade Uranium is recovered from the trunk. He is immediately thrown into a high-security prison and tortured relentlessly for months. But apart from a few vicious-sounding curses in an unknown language, he utters nothing. Then one day out of the blue, he gives his interrogators a list of numbers and letters, which turn out to be astronomical coordinates of upcoming Supernova explosions. The very next day the first of those celestial events occurs exactly as predicted, sending shock-waves through the security establishment. It's obvious; the man in custody is no ordinary terrorist. He is a time-traveller from the future. Fifteen years later, RAMIRO still sits in the same secret prison two kilometres under the ground, but much has changed in the world above. Based on the information he has provided over the years, the US has waged

- Delta 1, we

got a 10-53 at mile 37.

Stand by.

It's a black Nisan maxima.

Alberta license plate, yr1 9142.

- Copy.

It's Alen vehicle,

suspect could be armed.

- Copy that.

Searching the vehicle now.

Code 9. Code 9.

I found some metal disks

hidden in the trunk.

We're gonna need a special unit.

- Copy.

Central's been alerted.

- Hello?

- Sir, Comissioner

of border control here.

- Yes, Michael, what is it?

- About 20

minutes ago a man was taken

into custody in Montana

not far from the border.

He was trying to smuggle

in around 10-pounds

of weapons-grade uranium.

- I am speaking to you.

Speaking to you.

Speaking to you.

Speaking to you.

I am speaking to you.

Speaking to you.

Speaking to you.

Speaking to you.

I am speaking to you.

Speaking to you.

Speaking to you.

Speaking to you.

Speaking to you.

Speaking to you.

Speaking to you.

Speaking to you.

Speaking to you.

- Tough son of a

b*tch, ain't he?

- By now he should be

on his knees begging us

to let him confess.

- Push harder.

This should do it.

- What is it? KH-5?

- The enhanced version.

It attacks the nerve cells

even faster and the pain

is ten-times worse.

No one's lasted more

than a couple minutes.

I give him five, tops.

What the hell?

- Maybe we should up the dosage.

- No.

Max, get the hell out of there.

Let's get blood work done,

let's run every test possible.

I k we're dealing

with a far bigger problem

than a few pounds of uranium.

Synthetic genes?

Nano devices?

- All that's missing

is a battery pack.

Is this guy even human?

Is he, asking...

- Pen and paper.


Any ideas?

- Coordinates to me.

- These l

yeah, supernovae, comets.

Something like that.

I had a thing about

astronomy in high school.

I have no idea what these are.

- I think they're dates.

- Dates.

- Yeah.

We live in the year 1433

according to e Islamic calendar.

Looks like our prisoner can

predict celestial events.

It's 140-years into the future.

- Bullshit.

- The first day on

the list is tomorrow.

Oh, look at that!

I'll be damned.

- The star blew

up exactly where he said.

What do you think, Fischer?

Who the f*** is this guy?

- As insane as it sounds,

I think he's from the future.

There is no other

explanation for it.

- A

time-travelling terrorist.

That doesn't sound scary at all.

- Agent Carmen Reese.

Well it's nice

and quiet up here.

Almost makes one

believe that all is

peachy in the world out there.

If you need me I'll be outside.

- Oh, Fischer.

Why am I not surprised?

- Forgive the intrusion, Carmen,

but you left me no choice.

In the envelope is the

directive terminating

your leave of absence,

effective immediately.

- Since when did

you become my boss?

- It's signed by the president.

- Well you can tell the

president that I've decided

not to return to my job.

- Well you can tell

him that yourself.

But first I need

you to hear me out.

The data disk contains

a brief on a prisoner

I've been working

with for years.

An extraordinarily-dangerous

individual who holds the fate

of our world in his hands.

- So that was your

top-secret assignment?

- Look, I kept you out

of it for your own good.


Now I'm desperate.

I need help.

- You've got the entire

agency at your disposal.

- I need someone I trust.

- Are you okay?

- Whoa.


Things have gotten

strange, Carmen.

And I feel like I'm

losing my mind but,

I'm this close to

figuring it all out.

- Fischer, don't you get it?

I'm in no position to help you.

- I know you're still looking

for answers for what happened.
