INT. A CASTLE HALL

Were in a large castle that seams dark and cold you hear the screams of pain mixed with the snap of whips.

THRONE ROOM

We enter a room and see princess ZARRA holding the whip tower above a young boy no more then ten,, MILKO, tears streaming from its eyes.

While a regal but evil looking man Lord ZARR watches from above.





MILKO


Please, stop please, don’t!

Zarra continues lowering her whip, the whip meats his flesh, another scream escapes his lips.





MILKO


OK! OK! I’ll tell you want


to know just please stop!

Lord Zarr raises his hand palm out; Zara lowers the whip and steps away from the poor creature head lowered.

Zarr comes toward the sad little creature.





ZARR


Then when are the rebels coming?

Milko speaks solidly but through tears





MILKO


They plan on attacking tomorrow





ZARR


Thank you my young friend.


Zarra can you please dispose of this


Sad lump of youth.





ZARRA


Yes father

Then she lifts her hands above her head and red sparks flash towards the sad creature.

As soon as they hit Milko his body jolts as if he was struck with electric energy.

He looks at Zarra pleadingly but she doesn’t flinch.

he dies

Zarra doesn’t seem to be moved
Zarr snaps his fingers and men in red armour and red eyes come from the door.

Some remove the Milko’s body while one CAPTIAN MOROS stands beside Zarr








ZARR


Prepare for battle

The captain nods then leaves, leaving Zarr and Zarra alone





ZARR


Good job you have much improved





ZARRA


Thank you father








ZARR


Now go I have much to do before tomorrow

Zarra nods then leaves

She leaves the room.

INT. THE HALL- DAY

Zarra runs down the Hall and a servant walks by too but scared by the shock of seeing the princess he trips and all dropping his tray of food.

Zarra first walks by.





SERVENT


Sorry your highness

Zarra then turns to face the Servant





ZARRA


Did I ask you to speak?

The princess then points her hand and sparks fly sending the servant across the room.


EXT. STABLES- DAY

It’s cloudy and hot

Zarra walks to one horse he’s a muscular black Friesian, for the first time we see Zarra smile

She mounts him bareback, and they go galloping away toward the bleak black cliffs and eventually a mountain.

They gallop through

A ROCKY DESERT LANSCAPE

The horse is breathing hard, her skirt is flowing, Zarra’s rich eyes stare a head of them.

ROCKY CLIFF

They climb up the horse struggles but they make it.

THE TOP OF THE MOUNTAIN

The horses main and tail blow in the wind along with Zarra’s skirt

She is staring at the castle below.


INT. THE HALLWAY OF THE CASTLE - DAY

Lord Zarr is walking briskly through the halls until he reaches a door he pulls out a key and cautiously turns the key and opens the door

SECRET ROOM

He walks with purposely toward a specific chest; he removes it from its spot and cautiously opens the chest looks at the thing in the box and sighs

He takes the chest and puts it back but in another chest in another chest

He steps away and looks at the huge chest then he raises his hands and red sparks fly from his finger tips





ZARR


Mech nama kilo nika

As he speaks his enchantment the chest glows and shakes then goes back to normal.

Satisfied Zarr leaves the room and closes the door.

EXT. THE FOREST –DAY

Zarra rides through a dark almost dead forest when she comes to a clearing in the trees; the clearing has lots of rocks and targets on the rocks. They look torn and beaten some look burned.

Zarra dismounts her horse and approaches the rocks.





ZARRA


Nia sha sta nia mira show na

Red sparks fly from her finger tips immediately a crossbow bolt attacks her from behind the rocks and she ducts.

Then a collection of bolts and arrows come firing at her from the hidden rocks some she ducts and moves others she blasts with magic.

She’s done so she stops looking proud of her self when her eyes lift and she sees a spear rising but not a normal spear this spear is decorated with symbols all across it. Zarra is startled but she gets over it and blasts the spear.





ZARRA


Show na mira nia sta sha nia

She breaths a sigh of relief.

MONTAGE – THE TRATOR

-- Two children playing by the fire a boy and a girl shooting each other playfully with sparks.

BACK TO SCENE

Zarra looks at the spear tears in her eyes





ZARRA


Cousin

She turns away from the spear and away from the rocks

EXT. THE STABLE – DAY

Zarra is brushing her horse when JOHN, a boy in rags and covered in mud comes in he is carrying buckets of water which he puts in the horses stall.

Zarra sees him




ZARRA


John, where have you been?




JOHN


Work, what about you? Shouldn’t
you be preparing for battle?




ZARRA


That’s where I’m going now,


Father contacted me

John nods then walks away after emptying his water bucket.

Zarra watches him leave


INT.THRONE ROOM –DAY

Zarra enters the room

The room is full of the same red knights.

In the center of the room is a table with a map of the castle on it, Zarr and Captain Moros are huddled over it making planes.

Zarra walks to her father





ZARR


Zarra you will cover the back door





CAPTAIN MOROS


Hide in the shadows





ZARR


We’re expecting a surprise attack





CAPTIAN MOROS


So we will surprise them

He says with a smile

Zarra nods with a slight bow

He leans in and whispers in her ear





ZARR


Use your gift



(Even closer)


And don’t mess up

Zarr pulls away from Zarra





ZARR


I want you at your post by sunset


You may leave

Zarra turns around and walks away

Zarr turns back to the map.





ZARR


What about here



(zarr points at the map)







CAPTIAN


I will protect the south gate


Sir





ZARR


Yes captian





CAPTIAN


You don’t think he will come.


Do you sir?





ZARR


I certainly hope not.

Zarr turns back to the map.

EXT. THE DOOR BY STABLES –NIGHT

Zarra is hiding in the shadows, a knife in her hand. She is no longer in her long black dress but fighting cloths.

MONTAGE – TIME PASSING

--the moon is out low in the sky

--The moon is about a ¼ of the way

--the moon is ½ way through the sky

--the moon is ¾ of the way

BACK TO SCENE

Zarra is now siting playing with her knife looking at the moon reflection in it when she hears a rustling in the bushes she perks up immediately and stares out she is breathing hard and she is grasping even harder on the knife.

The John walks in; Zarra relaxes, and then looks closer. John is agitated and worried he run cautiously to the wall and opens a secret door and men come walking in, they whisper with John then walk towards the castle.





ZARRA


Niemba badaba bubbla

Immediately all the men’s pants fall down and Zarra suppresses a laugh, John hears her.

He starts to walk towards the sound

Zarra is suddenly serious and raises her knife.

As soon as he gets close Zarra plunges the knife into his leg the gets up as John writhers in pain





ZARRA


Kraka kima crama

Red sparks fly from her hands and they touch the foreheads of them men the men sigh until they start to burn then they writher in pain as the coals burn into their brain.

Zarra then raises her hands and send red sparks like fireworks to the sky.

MONTOGE – THE GAURDS KNOW

--the guards hiding in a tree see the lights

--the archers on the tower know

--the men in the moat know

--lord Zarr hiding in the hall see the sparks

INT. THE HALL –NIGHT

Zarr sees the sparks then look out a window and sees Zarra fighting rebels coming from all angles. He turns then goes to the

SECRET ROOM

And opens all the chests to find a medallion he grabs it and puts it on his body flashes red and his eyes stay red. Then he walks away and goes towards the tower. On top of the tower he raises his hands.





ZARR


Vosoro

Immediately his voice is amplified





ZARR


How dare you attack he home of Lord


Zarr, ruler of this land, protector


Of your homes, yet this is how you


Thank me. Well now I will return


The favour.

Zarr lifts his arm high and just as red sparks begin to form some sparks appear from behind, and knock him down.

A hand reaches out and grabs the medallion from Zarrs neck





THE FIGURE/MARCUS


Finally

then in the cover of the shadows the figure runs off the roof.

EXT. THE FIELD OUTSIDE THE STABLES –NIGHT

Zarra is fighting left right and center all by herself but she’s doing well with a mix of magic and knife work. Until she gets cornered and red sparks come from behind her and knock her out.

John and the other rebals are surprised then the figure enters MARCUS the boy in Zarra’s vision comes out from the dark.





MARCUS


Pick her up we will need her


to wield it’s power.





JOHN


So you have it

Marcus shows John what’s in his hand. John smiles.

Then other red eyed knights come to attack to band of rebels.





JOHN


How will we fight them?

Marcus rolls his eyes then lifts his arms.





MARCUS


Jia nia kia lia

Red sparks fly then all the rebels and Zarra disappear in a cloud of smoke.

EXT. THE ROOF- DAY

Lord Zarr is still unconscious on the roof when the Captian comes and wakes him.





CAPTIAN


My lord

Zarr wakes up and using magic propels him over the roof then stops seeing it’s his friend.





ZARR


Where’s the medallion?


Where’s Zarra





CAPTIAN


they or is should say he took them





ZARR


So he’s back

The captain nods





ZARR


Thne we need to hide


And we need to bring them back


or else we will certainly be doomed


INT. THE REBAL HIDE OUT –DAY

The scene is taken place in a dark musty room there are a few people in the room all look tired and dirty wearing nothing but rags. At the front of the room is a sad excuse of a throne and in front of the wooden chair is a man, PAUL, pacing back and forth. The room is silent.

The door opens and John is leading the rebels back. They are dragging Zarra with them she has a black bag over her head and she doesn’t struggle.





PAUL


Do you have her?




JOHN


See for your self

John rips off the bag. Theirs a figure but her hair is in her face.
Paul comes over and attempts to brush away her hair.




ZARRA


Yama nira

Immediately Paul is thrown to the other side of the room





JOHN


Satisfied?
Paul nods




PAUL


What about the other thing?





MARCUS


Right here

He says in the shadows. Then he steps out of the shadow and Zarra gasps.





ZARRA


Cousin?




MARCUS


That I am your father couldn’t keep me


away for long




ZARRA


But, why?




MARCUS


For this

Marcus pulls out the medallion from his jacket its golden glow shines on Zarra’s face.




ZARRA


Where did you find that?





MARCUS


With your father where else would he


put it he doesn’t trust anyone with it.





ZARRA


For good reason, you know the power it


Possesses.




MARCUS


Exactly that’s why we need it and that’s


why we need you





ZARRA


Why would you need me?





MARCUS


Because it belongs to you





ZARRA


No it belongs to my father





MARCUS


But it will work even better for you,


you are its true master





ZARRA


How can you say that it’s has always


worked well for my father, hell that’s


how he established this kingdom with help


from that.

She points an excusing finger at the medallion









MARCUS


But it will work even better for you





ZARRA


I won’t use it, not for you, I will stay


loyal unlike you, traitor.





MARCUS


Ohh but you will

Marcus then lifts up his hands and sends out red sparks towards the bound Zarra




ZARRA


Blacka nira gora fiesta

Then objects that she looks at fly at Marcus but he sends out sparks and obliterates the rocks and furniture.








MARCUS


So daddy has trained you well









ZARRA


Since before I could walk,


good luck controlling me.





MARCUS


I thought we would have this problem


John please bring out the chains

John brings out a chest in the chest are chains black as night.





MARCUS


Recognize these? They’re the same ones


I was bound in when you tortured me now


I will return the favour.

Using magic Marcus sends the chains toward Zarra they wrap around her. Another man brings out a black whip with barbs on it and he lifts the whip ready to strike.




PAUL


Is this really necessary? Are we


really going to torture this little


girl.





MARCUS


You saw her power you saw her defiance


we have no choice.





JOHN


But there has to be another way





MARCUS


There is no other way. Do you want to be free?


I could take on the king myself if need be and


I will if you won’t support me.





PAUL


Then do as you must.

Paul looks at John, John looks at Zarra and Zarra looks at Marcus and Marcus looks at the whip As he lowers it on her flesh.

See screams

INT. A JAIL ROOM -DAY

Zarra lays on her stomach her back is red from the whip and the sun peaks through a window up above she’s in a jail with straw on the ground and chains on her ankle. She puts a hand on her back and sees the blood on her hand.





ZARRA


Homoro obinno helo
Slowly her skin comes together and new skin is created in a matter of seconds she just has long white scars. She sits up.

A door opens and there’s John with a tray on the tray is bread and water. Zarra looks at him he looks at her.





JOHN


Brought you some food

Zarra looks up at the food but she doesn’t reach for it.
John looks at the food then puts it down beside her. Then sits down beside her. Zarra looks at him she lifts her hands then lets sparks begin on her fingertips.




JOHN


Look there’s no reason for that

just though you would want company

that’s all.

She lowers her hand the sparks stop



JOHN


Why can’t you use the medallion?


Is it really worth it?



ZARRA


I’m no traitor

Zarra eyes John, John looks to the ground. He gets up and leaves leaving the tray behind. Takes one last look at Zarra then closes the door. Zarra sighs.

OTHER SIDE

John leans against the door sighs then turns around and looks through a crack, Zarra is eating the food, John smiles.

INT. THE REBAL THRONE ROOM –DAY

Marcus is in the room and he is pacing, then john enters.





MARCUS


How did it go?





JOHN


She blames me. She’s so mad


and so hurt, but she didn’t


tell me anything about the medallion


or about where her father will be hiding.





MARCUS


Thought so the medallion is too precious


and she’s too loyal to her father. But don’t


worry I know where her father will be but I’m


not pure enough to work the medallion I need her


to use it.





JOHN


Pardon my asking but what do you mean by


pure enough?





MARCUS


The medallion will only work for those of


royal blood and the more pure one is the better


the medallion is and that girl in the dungeon


was breed to master that power.





JOHN


Breed?




MARCUS



Her father’s mother was a nobody but


her mother queen Lilly was the


previous master of the medallion and


Zarra is now the purest person alive.


All she has to do it touch the medallion


and it will belong to her until her dying


days.





JOHN


We need to make sure she will work for


us before we let her touch that thing.





MARCUS


Exactly





JOHN


How?





MARCUS


That seems to be the question of the day

They stare at each other.

INT. JAIL –NIGHT
Zarra is laying in the straw sleeping when a hooded figure enters the jail cell the figure walks towards Zarra and lowers a key and a note by her head. Then Zarra jumps she grabs the figure and flips then so the person is on their back she has her hands around the persons neck.

Zarra pulls of the hood and Captain Moros is laying before her.





CAPTIAN MOROS


It’s ok your father sent me

Zarra releases his neck





ZARRA


Why are you here why did he send you?





CAPTIAN MOROS


He doesn’t trust anyone else


Listen you can’t escape not yet


you’re here so your father has


a job for you.





ZARRA


What dosue he wish of me









CAPTIAN MOROS


Something was stolen in the attack


you need to get it back.





ZARRA


The medallion





CAPTIAN MOROS


Yes... have you seen it?







ZARRA


They want me to use it against


father they clame that I can overrule


fathers power over it. I don’t believe


them, I’ve seen my father do incredible


things with it and I can’t believe that with


me it will be more powerful.

The captain lowers his head then lifts it





CAPTIAN



There is truth in their words.





ZARRA


So I can become more powerful


then father, how?





CAPTIAN


Zarra this is not my place to tell you get the medallion and bring it to your father and he will tell you what you should have learned a long time ago but bring the medallion the rebels will destroy everything if we don’t have its power.





ZARRA


Meet me out side

The captain bows then leaves.

ZARRA


Chraka maka ninaka

A flash of red sparks then her chains break

THE HALL OF THE DUNGION

Rebel guards come she stops and stands

The guards stand eyeing their curious prisoner

Zarra closes her eyes





ZARRA



(Whispering then shouting)


Ni ona, maka nira, flacka!

She opens her eyes and the guards burst into flame they squirm and cry and Zarra smiles

She keeps walking past the crisp forms of the guards

She keeps walking until she gets to the

THRONE ROOM

all the leaders of the rebels are huddled around the a map but turn to stare at their prisoner






ZARRA


You tortured me you hated me and now it’s


time for my revenge. There are more of you,


this isn’t all the rebels, I’m not that blind so


I will deal with you here, you will see the


wrath of Zarra daughter of lord Zarr and master


of magic. I garinte you, you will all die.

Zarra raised her hands red sparks flying around her like lightning the men in the room begin to shake involuntarily then the wind comes they swirl around Zarra until finally the sparks explode and when the explosion is over the blood of everyone has been exploded as if everyone had a bomb inside of them.

Zarra opens her eyes and there red.





ZARRA (VO)


Show yourself to me.

The a golden glow refects through a pool of blood Zarra crouches down and lifts the medallion imedietly her eyes turn red and sparks shoot from the medallion. She puts it around her neck then she turns and leaves.
