The One

Synopsis: There is not one universe, but there are many, which is a multiverse. Supposing you are just one person, there are many other versions of you in the other universes, there are ways to travel, but only a police agency, MVA, can travel only for police procedures. Gabriel Yulaw is a former MVA agent, who killed another version of himself in self-defense. It made the other versions of him stronger. When Yulaw found out about this, he became power-hungry killing the 122 other versions for two years. After killing Lawless and getting captured by his former partner Roedecker and a new MVA agent Funsch, Yulaw managed to escape the prison and is trying to kill his last target, Gabe Law who is a police officer. He is also at Yulaw's strength. Roedecker and Funsch now have to arrest Yulaw before he can kill Gabe. There is a possibility that the universe could die or make Yulaw invincible. After encountering Yulaw for the first time, Gabe thought that it was his split personality, but it wasn't. W

There is not one universe. There are many.

A Multiverse.

We have the technology

to travel between universes...

... but travel is highly restricted

and policed.

There is not one you. There are many.

Each of us exists in present time,

in parallel universes.

There was balance in the system...

... but now a force exists

who seeks to destroy the balance...

... so he can become The One.

President Gore addressed Congress today

where he outlined the White House plan....

Here they come, man.

They're going to take you on out.

You're dead, Lawless! You're dead!

Ain't payback a b*tch?

Die, Lawless, you piece of sh*t!

Die like all my boys you took out!

I know they're going to kill you upstate...

... but no one's getting you on my watch,

so don't sweat, Lawless.

You want that thumb?

Let's move him out of here.

I want to hear you scream, Lawless.

Come on, scream for me.

Going to get you, a**hole!

Yeah, walk the walk!

You piece of sh*t! You're a dead man!

Something's wrong.

Prisoner down!

Up there!

Hold your fire! Cease fire!

Woo, Scott, follow me!

Razor wire should have kept anyone out,

let alone moving fast.

There's no blood.

Holy sh*t! He's doing 50!

Adam 13 in pursuit of suspect

headed west, Third and Olympic.

Request assistance

from 2 David air unit. Over.

Roger that.

Air 14 en route to Third and Olympic.

He's going to the hole.

We have to get there,

override him before he jumps.

Give me the go-ahead. He'll never make it.

Check fire. Stick to procedure, Funsch.

You were recruited to apprehend him,

not be his assassin, understand?

I can't hear you. Do you understand?

Loud and clear.

Yulaw! MVA!

Loud and clear, huh?

Roedecker! Less than a minute!


Hands high!

Thirty seconds, Roedecker.

Who the hell is this now?

You must be the new guy.

Where is Roedecker?

This is your last warning.

Get your hands where I can see them.


You, drop that weapon!

I will kill you.

No, you won't.

Where is Roedecker?

- Here I am.

- What the....


You stick to procedure...

... it all works out.

Victim 117, Yu Fook Law,

Monoceros Universe.

Victim 118, Swen Law, Tucana Universe.

Victim 119, Ni Dilaw, Canopus Universe.

Victim 120, Kia Jilaw, Serpenz Universe.

Victim 121, Seth Law, Procyon Universe.

Victim 122, Frun Law, Shauwla Universe.

Victim 123, Lawless, Anubis Universe.

What's the next move?

It won't work for you anymore, Yulaw.

The shortest distance

between two points...

... will always be a straight line.

Your line has run out. You don't see that?

There's never been anything

like what I have become.

You know that.

You were there for my first one.

- I wish I'd never let there be a second.

- But there was a second.

And a third.

And a 123rd.

Why did you come, Harry?

You miss me?

I missed who you were.

You've been chasing me how many years?

Two years.

I just need to do it one more time.

There won't be a "one more time" for you.


Stygian Penal Colony, Hades Universe.

Gabriel Yulaw.

The peoples of the Multiverse

have found you guilty...

... of 123 counts of first-degree murder...

... and 123 counts of unauthorized travel

to parallel universes...

... by use of illegal guantum tunneling.

For these crimes,

you have been sentenced to life...

... without the possibility of return...

... on the Stygian Penal Colony,

in the Hades Universe.

May God be with you.

You may make a final statement.

The Multiverse.

Every universe in it is irrational...

... sloppy.

I just try to make it rational.

I just try to make it neat.

You call it murder.
