Screen in black.

WOMAN (V.O.):

Good morning, Sunshine! Desperta, Xavi…

We hear a boy yawning.

WOMAN (V.O.):

Wake up, baby… today is going to be a very special day for you… Open your eyes!

Kissing' sound. The boy yawns again.

KID (V.O.):

Don't want to wake up!

WOMAN (V.O.):

Yeah! You want! You've been talking all the week about how eager you are to know the Big Ben, well; today we're going to go to the Big Ben…

Google opens his eyes. His mother is in front of him. She's blonde, she is a very beautiful girl, her name is Nicole, and she is 28.

Close up to Nicole.

NICOLE:

So, wake up, we need to use all the time we got to know London before we come back to Barcelona.

GOOGLE:

That's why; you are talking in English with your fake British accent, Mom.

NICOLE:

I need… We need! To practice our English in case the company transfers your father to England. So, wake up Xavi.

Google wakes up.

GOOGLE:

You know… I have the weirdest dream last night.

NICOLE:

Tell me.

GOOGLE:

I dream with a Tsunami and… (Pause) I saw a lot reptile…

NICOLE:

Reptiles? You mean like crocodiles or snakes?

GOOGLE:

No, they were like reptilian shaped humans.

BEYOND "The Rise of the Phoenix"

CUT TO…

EXT. LONDON EYE. DAY. (DECEMBER THE 21ST 2012)

Google (Xavi) is on the London Eye with his mother. She is taking pictures with a camera.

GOOGLE:

Mom, where's dad?

NICOLE:

You know where he is… He's working…

GOOGLE:

I've thought this well, and, I don't want to live here.

NICOLE:

What are you talking about, baby? You love London and England…

GOOGLE:

Yeah, but I don't want to live here. All my friends live in Barcelona; my whole life is there…

NICOLE:

(Smiling)

"You're whole life" Lock at you! You are talking like an adult.

GOOGLE:

I want to go home.

NICOLE:

All Changes are difficult, baby, but trust me; we will be just fine. You will find new friends here, I know that.

GOOGLE:

I don't know.

NICOLE:

Let's talk about other topics… (Pause) Tell me about your dream…

GOOGLE:

I don't want to talk about it. It was really scary…

NICOLE:

(Points the Big Ben with his finger)

Ok, don't think about that now… Look! It's beautiful.

CUT TO…

EXT. WESTMINSTER BRIDGE. DAY.

Xavi and his mother walk through the bridge with their eyes on the Elizabeth tower. Suddenly, they hear the buzz. Google looks up the sky; it turns to blue sepia.

GOOGLE:

Mom, Look! Isn't that weird?!

NICOLE:

Oh, no! It can't be happening now! It's too soon.

GOOGLE:

Mom, what's going on?

NICOLE:

Run… run away.

GOOGLE:

What?

NICOLE:

RUN AWAY!!!

The earthquake begins. Google runs to the parliament square, his mother runs in the other direction. A flashing light that comes from the sky blinds Google. He falls down.

FADE TO WHITE…

Google opens his eyes. He is alone. The sky is black, the sun is gone.

GOOGLE:

Mom! Mom! Where are you? Please! Someone!

Some houses and monuments fell down; but the British parliament and the Elizabeth tower are fine. There are fissures on the streets, and huge crack in the middle of the Westminster Bridge.

GOOGLE:

Hello!!! mare, on aquestes? et necessito…

The little boy walks to the Big Ben. He is crying.

GOOGLE:

Where's is the sun? Am I dead?

Google looks up to the clock; it's still working. The clock strikes the 10 o'clock in the morning. Google sits down on the sidewalk.

FADE TO BLACK…

It's been two hours; Google is sleeping on the sidewalk. A metallic noise breaks the silence; a big red marker falls down from the sky.

GOOGLE:

What?

He stands up and walks very carefully to the marker. Google picks it up.

GOOGLE:

What is it? (Pause) Is someone here?!

The boy looks up again. There's something in the sky, Google can't distinguish what is that thing because the darkness, but it looks like a huge triangle. It makes no sound.

GOOGLE:

Hello?

He listen a female voice but he doesn't recognize the language. A laser beam hits the huge triangle, it comes from the tower.

There's a huge explosion, the boy runs away. The triangle ship responds the attack with a red laser beam.

GOOGLE:

What is going on here? Mom… Where are you?!

Google kneels down,

with the red marker writes on the street: "Ajuda'ma, mama".

The flashing light blinds him again.

FADE TO WHITE…

INT. WHITE ROOM.

Google opens his eyes. He is on white room; the walls and the floor are shining. It's impossible to say where the walls finish and where the floor begins. On a corner, Google sees his own body on a table.

GOOGLE:

What? No?!

A man and woman discuss about something near to him. Google doesn't recognize the language. They're look to be debating. The language that they are speaking to each other is so similar to the Hebrew.

GOOGLE:

Please let me go…

WOMAN:

(Speaking on the strange language)… You must go down, some of the creatures are still alive, and we need to kill them all… Take his body.

GOOGLE:

Noo!!!

CUT TO…

EXT. BIRDCAGE WALK. NIGHT. (Two hours later)

Mario and Luigui walk through Birdcage Walk. They're not wearing the robes.

LUIGUI:

Told you, this is a bad idea.

MARIO:

It's not.

LUIGUI:

We better go back, we need to go back.

MARIO:

NO! I need to know what is going on here… (He stops) Look! I saw my father and my mother dying by my side, and then… they just disappeared…

LUIGUI:

I know, you are not the only one, we all saw weird stuff, but… what are you going to do? Uh? Are you going to enter to the Buckingham Palace and talk with the queen?

MARIO:

Yes! Yes! It's impossible that all are gone! There's had to be someone on charge!

LUIGUI:

Yes! There's someone on charge! We are! There are no more people, there's no government! There's no grown-up! It's just us!

MARIO:

NO! NO! I refuse! Something is wrong here!

LUIGUI:

You're right! Something is wrong! But, we need to go back! They need you. We shouldn't leave the kids with them.

MARIO:

I Know! But, I Can't! I can't! I can't go back!

LUIGUI:

Why not!

MARIO:

I just can't be what everyone expects for me to be! I'm not a leader! I don't know what to do! (Crying) I just buried my parents!

LUIGUI:

I know I helped you… but… If we expect a lot from you is because we know you can! We need someone who brings us confidence!

MARIO:

I don't know! I'm just a teenage!

LUIGUI:

We all are! But you got vision!

Suddenly, Mario saw a shadow walking in zigzag to them.

MARIO:

Look, Luigui! There's someone there! (To the person) HEY! HEY!

Luigui and Mario runs to that person. The person has something in your arms; its look like a bunch of books.

MARIO:

(To Luigui)

Oh no! It's just a boy!

Mario and Luigui just found Google.

LUIGUI:

(To Google)

Hey! What's your name? What are you doing with those all books?

Google seems to be bemused.

MARIO:

Hey! What's wrong with you? What's your name?

GOOGLE:

I don't know?

LUIGUI:

And the he books? What are..?

GOOGLE:

I am preserving the human Knowledge.

MARIO:

Do you know what is happening?

GOOGLE:

Yes, the axis of the earth just changed… and that causes tsunamis all over the world. The tectonic plates move violently for the change of the axis, too, and that causes the earthquakes.

LUIGUI:

And, what about the sun? Where's the sun? What happen with the electricity?

GOOGLE:

An electromagnetic pulse damages the electric transformers. The sun… umm… I'm not sure!

MARIO:

How do you know all this? What is your name?

GOOGLE:

Told you, I don't know my name… I can't remember it, but, I just know Stuff.

LUIGUI:

I don't believe you! Tell us your name!

GOOGLE:

(Dramatic pause) I just don't know!

LUIGUI:

(To Mario)

What do think about that! This kid seems to know everything, he is like Google, but he doesn't know his own name… Ironic, isn't it?

MARIO:

Yes! It is… (To Google) Have you been in the Buckingham place? Is the Queen alive?

LUIGUI:

(To Google)

Is Kate fine?

MARIO:

(To Luigui)

Who's Kate?

LUIGUI:

Middleton! Of course! (Pause) What?! I'm genuinely worried about her.

MARIO:

Yeah! Right!

GOOGLE:

I wouldn't go there if I were you, guys.

LUIGUI:

Why?

GOOGLE:

Let's go to the Kniegge's Store…

MARIO:

How the hell you know that?!

GOOGLE:

Told you, I just know stuff.

Google stars to walk. Mario and Luigui follow him.

LUIGUI:

Hey! Google boy wait for us!
