13) Ext. Gothenburg - construction site - sunset / night
Magnus wheels Ari's wheelchair onto a remote
construction site. Ari is wrapped into a blanket.
They stop and wait until sunset to view the
sun vanishing behind the horizon.
Our date seems like a really bad movie!
Magnus seems to be confused. He goes on
What do you mean by that?
Don't get me wrong. I'm serious. It is just so...
Yet it serves you.
No, Lazarus, you don't have to pretend
anything to me... It serves us both.
They stop. Ari takes out a package of
cigarettes and keeps it in his hands.
I mean, I cannot understand why you are
doing this... there must be some deeper reason behind it.
I just want to help.
How many have you already 'just helped'?
I don't know.. I'm not counting.
Is it okay with you if I smoke?
You know, all losers smoke.
Magnus takes out his lighter and lights Air's
But not all smokers are losers.
Well! And which group do you belong to?
Magnus fishes his cigarettes out of his coat
and lights one. Silence.
It seems I am a member of the first one.
Since my accident a couple of years ago, I've only been able to bear all this
by retreating into my dreams.
With anger in his eyes he hits on his legs.
But at some point it becomes clear, that it
is just ridiculous, to simply jump from dream to dream...
Let's go for a walk.
(quietly to himself)
Yea exactly. Go for a walk...
Magnus wheels Ari slowly over the construction
When did you make this decision?
At first the only person who made my life
worth living left me...
A lost love?
No, Lazarus, no. You probably hear these
kinds of stories all the time. But with me it's different.
Somehow he didn't actually leave me, he
wasn't around often enough for it... to be like that.... How can I explain it?
... He stopped feeding my dreams... Yes, that is the best way to say it.
However. As well as that I found out
something. A few days ago. I found out that my biggest wish and only dream will
never come true...
And now nothing makes sense anymore.
Maybe even this doesn't make sense anymore?
Magnus stops walking.
Close Up Magnus
Magnus gets afraid that Ari could change his
mind. He is so tensed up that he clenches his fist.
Back to scene
What you are doing is right, Soulwalker. You
even mentioned that it cannot go on like this.
You are probably right.
You promised it will be painless.
Just one thing Lazarus...
I have got something for you. It is in my
What is it?
My legacy. For you. But you will see.
What are you talking about?
Here, take the keys. You will find it in my
flat. Between the pictures.
Magnus takes the keys and examines them
carefully before putting them into his pockets.
Promise that you are going to go.
I'm ready then.
Magnus smiles. Slowly he takes out a flacon.
Drink this. I am with you.
Ari drinks the liquid which is in the flacon. He
closes his eyes. For a moment nothing happens. Then convulsions are shaking him.
Camera: long shot
Magnus is standing right behind with both
hands on Ari's shoulders. He holds him tight, looks into the sky and apparently
enjoys the moment.
Back to scene
After a while Magnus takes out his notepad
with the data of all his victims.
He consults his watch and extends the list: 'Soulwalker
xx.xx.2007 04:21 poison'.
After that Magnus takes a deep breath. He
carefully examines Ari's key again... puts it back into his pocket... just to
take out his cigarettes.
Camera: long shot
He smokes and slowly goes away.
