Upside Down

Synopsis: Adam is a seemingly ordinary guy in a very extraordinary universe. He lives humbly trying to make ends meet, but his romantic spirit holds on to the memory of a girl he loved once upon a time from another world, an inverted affluent world with its own gravity, directly above but beyond reach... a girl named Eden. Their childhood flirtation becomes an impossible love. But when he catches a glimpse of grownup Eden on television, nothing will get in the way of getting her back... Not even the law or science!

(SLOW TUNE, FUTURISTIC)

NARRATOR:
The universe...

So full of wonders...

I could spend hours and hours

looking up at the sky.

So many stars,

so many mysteries...

And there's one very special star

that makes me think

of one very special person.

Now let me tell you my story.

At the dawn of time,

from the chaos,

came an exception.

One of the most mysterious secrets

of the universe.

You see, I come from

that very mysterious and unique place.

We are the only known solar system

with double gravity.

Two twin planets

whirling together around one sun

but each with its own

and opposite gravity.

Now, in our world

it's possible to fall up

and to rise down.

But... my story,

it's about love.

Some people say

that true lovers are one soul

that is separated when it's born.

And those two halves will always yearn

to find their way back together.

Well, to understand my story,

you're gonna need to know the three

basic laws of double gravity.

All matter, every single object

is pulled by the gravity of the world that

it comes from, and not the other.

An object's weight can be offset using

matter from the opposite world:

inverse-matter.

The problem is:

After a few hours of contact,

matter in contact with inverse-matter

...burns.

All these laws are as old

as the universe itself.

They're are unchangeable,

and there are no exceptions.

Gravity...

They say you can't fight it.

Well, I disagree.

What if love

was stronger than gravity?

Now let's go back

to the dark times

when any contact between worlds

was extremely dangerous

and totally forbidden.

Up top had grown rich

and prosperous

while here, down below,

we stole inverse-metal from up top

to heat our homes and to survive

risking everything,

even our own lives.

I think he's dead.

Hey! Police!

They only authorized contact

between worlds is through TransWorld,

a giant corporation up top,

created to take cheap oil

from down below

and to sell back to us

overpriced electricity

that we couldn't afford.

Because of TransWorld,

I grew up in an orphanage.

You see,

my parents died in the Big Blast,

a TransWorld oil refinery explosion

that destroyed much of the city.

Fortunately,

there were the weekends.

They let me visit

my great aunt Becky,

my only surviving relative.

(SLOW ORCHESTRAL VIOLIN MUSIC)

As well as Becky, there were

two things that I truly loved:

model airplanes

and Becky's flying pancakes.

Going to have to get me

some more pink pollen tomorrow.

Okay, sweetie?

Becky also initiated me

into an ancient knowledge

passed down over the generations

to the women of our family...

Now catch!

The secret of the pink bees.

(MUSIC CHANGES TO SLOW PIANO TUNE)

Becky, how do they do that?

(PIANO TUNE CONTINUES)

It's all in this book.

It was passed down

to my mother from hers.

And, of course,

I would have given it to your mother.

One day, when you grow up, it'll be yours..

(SLOW VIOLIN AND PIANO MUSIC)

Becky would often sent me to gather

pink pollen from the Sage Mountains.

This was the only place,

and a forbidden place,

where pink bees could be found.

Bees that fed of flowers

from both worlds

and without whom this story could

never have happened.

But I have a little secret

of my own...

I used to go chase inverse-rain

from up top.

(WHISTLING WIND

AND SOFT THUNDER)

One day

I went much further than usual,

climbing higher and higher

above the cloud line.

And that day... that day...

changed my life...

...forever.

(RAIN TRICKLING)

(SLOW VIOLIN MUSIC CONTINUES)

VIOLINS, HORNS)
