TEASER

FADE IN:

1. DESERT PATH - DUSK

A group of people in tattered robes is cautiously speeding through the desert, Eve at their lead.

Ahead of them, the land becomes hilly, but there is a noticeable path that weaves around the hill-like dunes.

A toddler starts to whimper, but is quickly hushed by his mother.

They look around, anxious and scared, for any signs of pursuers. A young Elijan, Darren, catches up with Eve.

 

DARREN
(quietly)

How much longer?

 

EVE

When we cross the borderlands, we'll take a break. We can't be more than another day, maybe a day and a half, from the sanctuary.

 

DARREN

How do we know he told us the truth or that they will even help us?

 

EVE

Faith.

 

DARREN
(looking over his shoulder)

Do you think they followed us?

 

Eve pauses and looks back, beyond the Elijans, then to the ground in front of her, sad.

 

EVE

I'm sure they did.

 

Darren looks around, alarmed. He looks at a young blonde woman worriedly.

 

DARREN

What?! Are you sure? How far back are they?

 

EVE

Less than a day.

 

DARREN

You said we'd be safe... what do you expect us to do?

 

EVE

I said you'd be safe at the sanctuary... you knew the risks inherent in the passage...

 

DARREN

What is that supposed to mean?! What kind of prophetess are you that you couldn't have warned us about the Romans being so close?

 

EVE

That's not how it works... 

 

A few of the Elijans hear them talking and they pick up on Darren's fear. They stop, lowering their baggage to the ground.

 

ELIJAN 1

We can't fight them. It's against the will of Eli.

 

ELIJAN 2

He's right.

 

ELIJAN 3

What are we gonna do?

 

EVE

Quiet everyone. The only thing we can do is move a little faster. The sooner we can make it to the village, the better off we'll be. Come on! Let's go!

 

The Elijans grudgingly pick up their meager belongings and start moving again.

2. DESERT PATH

Later, when the sun has passed its zenith, they enter a tall ravine with a few scraggly bushes and bare trees.

Their passage through is blocked by felled trees and boulders. Eve eyes it suspiciously as she looks around for tracks and clues.

 

DARREN
(throwing up his arms)

What do we do now? It's too steep to climb. The women and children will never make it.

 

EVE

Shh!!

 

She looks around. Her expression is one of deep concentration.

The sound of falling pebbles from above grabs her attention and her head turns up quickly.

 

EVE

It's a trap!

 

Suddenly Romans pour forth from behind rocks and boulders brandishing their weapons.

The Elijans freeze and clutch each other.

Children start to wail, sensing their parents' fear.

The Romans circle the Elijans and herd them into a small, cowering group with only Eve standing tall, defiance shining in her eyes.

The captain, Darius, walks through the guard and smiles at Eve.

DARIUS

Hello, Livia.

 

EVE (coldly)

Darius.

 

DARIUS

My, my, my... how the mighty have fallen... In with the Elijans. Absolutely incredible.

 

The Elijans look back and forth between their spiritual leader and the Roman captain.

 

EVE

You think I've fallen... I've merely found my calling.

 

DARIUS

Murder and mayhem were your true calling, Livia. Now, you can't even guide a small group of people through a desert.

(whispers)

How many of them know who you are? Who you REALLY are...?

 

EVE
(ignoring him)

Of course they know. I am Eve.

(beat)

What are you going to do us, Darius?

 

Darius slams the hilt of his sword against her head, knocking her out.

 

DARIUS
(to Roman soldier)

Put them in the cage. We have a four day journey to the hippodrome.

 

The Roman nods and the soldiers start gathering the Elijans and herding them into the cage.

As Darius observes them, a shadow briefly passes over his face.

 

DISSOLVE TO:

3. EVE'S DREAMSCAPE

Eve is laying unconscious on the floor of the desert. A light breeze rustles the sands. She slowly comes to and finds that she is alone. She clutches her head and blinks to clear her eyes.

Suddenly, a VISION of a crucifix strikes her like a bolt of lightning: the crucifix stands tall amidst twirling dust devils in an arid land, a crowd of mourners at its base.

 

EVIL CALLISTO
(tauntingly)

Poor little Eve... being visionary's a bitch, isn't it?

 

Eve turns and finds the original psycho-barbie Callisto, replete with her black leather battle dress, standing behind her with her hands clasped behind her back.

 

EVE

Who are you? What's going on?

 

EVIL CALLISTO

I'm your teacher, and I'm here to educate you.
