This was my first ever movie script, but as most of you can see for a beginner I got side tracked too much and didn't plan it overall.

The Wanderer

 

Written by OngCore Srisuk


 

Summary: A man wandering the wastelands of world war 3 travels around to find his brother that he was separated with at a military test base. He faces raiders, a town and people who are willing to help him. All he refuses as he travels the road trying to repay his sins and trying to find what he has lost.


 

Starting credits with news reports and video footage of World War 3 from start to the lead up to the destruction of countries due to nuclear bombs.


 

CUTS TO THE HIGHWAY WITH CARS PILED UP. ABANDONED


 

EXT.  WASTELAND OF HIGHWAY  -  DUSK

 

As the sun sets DEAN (28) walks past the cars stiff and upright, unafraid. He checks some cars for any goods but most have been scavenged. The sun outlines Dean as he walks down the highway alone towards a GAS STATION.

EXT.  IN FRONT OF GAS STATION  -  SUN STILL SETTING

Dean stops in front of the gas station where the entrance light is FLICKERING, slowly dying. He checks for any sound or sight of RAIDERS, being extra cautious and careful. He takes one more look at the slowly setting sun and wanders inside.


 

INT.  INSIDE GAS STATION  -  NIGHT

 

He searches around as the last light of the day fades away. Checking every shelf for any food or water. With no results he sighs and looks off in the distance.

EXT.  ON TOP OF GAS STATION  -  FEW MOMENTS LATER

 

Dean grunts as he effortlessly climbs his way on top. He slumps down beside the air conditioner unit and uses his bag as a pillow. He drinks a bit of his water left in his canteen. When finished he reaches for some food but stops as he remembers he doesn’t have any with a FROWN on his face. He stares up at the sky with the stars lighting up the sky.

 

Dean takes off his GLOVES to reveal his BURNT battle scarred hands. He rolls up his pants to reveal a machete and more scars. He cleans it with a DIRTY cloth and sharpens it with a JAGGED rug. He stares down the sharp edge and closes his eyes and breaths in.

FADES OUT TO TITLE SCREEN

THE WANDERER


 

EXT.  SAME HIGHWAY  -  DAWN

 

The sun rises and the rays of light slowly take over the land that was once shrouded with darkness. (CUTS TO DEAN)

 

Dean turns around and looks back at the sun that was rising. He shields his eyes as a small gust of wind sweeps over. (CAMERA CLOSES IN ON FACE)


 

EXT.  FORKED HIGHWAY  -  MORNING

 

(CAMERA SLOWLY DRAWS IN ON DEAN’S FACE)

 

Dean stops as he stands before a fork in the highway and is challenged on making a decision.

 

(PAN SHOT OF HIGHWAY SIGN)

 

The signs are RUSTED and Dean shakes his head in disappointment.

 

(CUTS TO RIGHT FORK)

 

A dust cloud is heading towards Dean from the right and he can hear the MOTORBIKE engine from the distance and immediately judges that they are raiders.

INT.  INSIDE OF CAR  -  FEW SECONDS LATER

 

(CAMERA SETUP ON LEFT FRONT SEAT)

 

Dean hauls the RIGHT door open as bits of rust crumble from the door frame. He positions himself as low as possible making sure he had an escape route as well.

 

(CAMERA MOVES TO APPROACHING MOTORBIKES)


 

EXT.  FORK OF HIGHWAY  -  MOMENTS LATER

 

A group of raiders (8) come to a sudden halt at the base of the fork and the SCOUTER jumps off his bike first.

 

SCOUTER

I swear I saw someone just a minute ago. I swear.

 

The others aimlessly look around. A man with a big build steps off his bike and is clear he is the leader.

 

LEADER

Search the cars!

 

The others leapt off their bikes in fear and starting checking the cars. The LEADER looks around frustrated and glares at the SCOUTER with a “YOU BETTER NOT BE LYING” look.

 

(CAMERA SWEEPS AROUND AND FOCUSES BACK ON DEAN. RAIDERS CLOSING IN)

5

INT.  INSIDE CAR  -  FEW SECONDS LATER

 

Dean tries to lower himself even more and controls his breathing. He rolls up his pants and his hand is at the handle if needed.

 

(CUTS TO RAIDER #1 CLOSING IN)

 

RAIDER #1 looks at a car and see’s a coat

 

RADIER #1

Hey I think I have something over here

 

Moves towards car and is about to open the door.

 

LEADER

What is it?

 

RAIDER #1

 

I don’t know. Looks like-

 

Dean kicks the door off the car with a powerful kick sending RAIDER #1 crushing towards another car. Everyone stops and stares at DEAN.

 

(CAMERA MOVES AROUND THE RAIDERS CIRCLE)

EXT.  FORK IN HIGHWAY  -  SECONDS LATER

 

RAIDER #2 charges in throwing a punch, but is parried and DEAN grabs his arm and breaks it. RAIDERS #3 & #4 both come charging at DEAN and (SLOW MOTION) DEAN pulls out his machete and slices both their throats open and finishes off RAIDER #2.

 

DEAN Looks around at the few RAIDERS and meets with the gaze of the LEADER.

 

LEADER

 

Well what’re you idiots standing around for. Get him!

 

The other 2 RAIDERS swoop in from the ordering voice. DEAN takes advantage of their fear and easily is able to slice them down. The LEADER steps up and grins. Spits at DEAN’S foot and lunges at him.

 

The LEADER’S huge body weighs DEAN down but he is able to dog his knee into the big mans crotch. With an angry roar and a slight weight lifted off DEAN he takes advantage of the moment yet again. Rolls off under and gets him into an arm lock. No escape. The fight looks decided.

DEAN

 

Which town were you sent from

 

LEADER

 

No town around here. “WANDERER”

 

DEAN tightens his grip. Threatening to break his arm. He doesn’t seem to want to give off any information.

 

LEADER (CONTD)

 

Even if you go. You people. Are dead anyways. Filthy ra-

 

A loud crack is heard and the man screams in pain. DEAN grabs him by the neck and snaps it with no emotion and regret.

 

DEAN

 

You’re not free yet

 

He grabs a small throwing knife from his bag pocket and throws it behind him, hitting the SCOUTER deep in the left leg. Leaving him crawling. DEAN approaches him.





 

8

SCOUTER

 

The town is that way

 

Pointing to the LEFT road. DEAN squats down beside him.

 

DEAN

 

You came from the RIGHT road. Why?

 

SCOUTER

 

I don’t kno-

 

DEAN punches him square in the mouth.

 

SCOUTER

 

Supplies! We went there for sup-

 

Another punch on the mouth.

 

SCOUTER

 

Alright. ALright. A couple weeks ago a few of our men went up their. They didn’t return.

 

DEAN stands up and and looks ahead. The SCOUTER laughs. Relieved. But DEAN stomps his head. DEAN makes way for the right fork leaving all the dead bodies behind.

EXT.  END OF HIGHWAY  -  NEARING DUSK

 

The highway lead to mountainous terrain and it abruptly stopped, the rest of the road looks to have vanished. DEAN takes in his surroundings and see’s no clue of civilization except for tire tracks left behind by the RAIDERS. Had the SCOUTER been lying?

 

(CAMERA CUTS TO P.O.V FROM AN UNKNOWN PERSON HIGH IN THE MOUNTAINS AND BACK TO DEAN)

 

DEAN jerks his head towards the mountainside, certain he was being watched. He looked back at the way he had come and hesitated either to go back or not. He continued to move forward of untracked land.


 

EXT.  DESERT, MOUNTAIN SURROUNDING  -  NIGHT

 

DEAN walks under the night sky with only the starlight giding him. He sings a song to himself but no words are heard.

 

(CAMERA WANDERS OFF INTO THE VAST OPEN LAND FILLING WITH A WHITE FLASS)







 

10

INT.  MILITARY SECRET TRAINING FACILITY  -  UNKNOWN

 

A young DEAN (15) is meditating in the centre of a pure white room. A military OFFICER suddenly breaks in through a concealed door.

 

OFFICER

 

Dean Captain Ice is requesting you


 

DEAN says nothing and continues to stay motionless. The officer approaches him but is only greeted by a neck submission.

 

DEAN

 

Next time tell him to not disturb me

 

DEAN lets go of the officer and walks out the door leaving him gasping for air.
