FADE IN

EXT: SKYSCRAPER, NIGHTTIME

We open on a wide shot of a large skyscraper. Night has fallen, and all around us we see and hear the sounds and motions of a lively city.

CUT: Front shot of the skyscraper. At the bottom of this shot, we see an individual climbing the skyscraper. This is our protagonist, SERENE. She is an anthropomorphic fox who works as an undercover ninja.

CUT: Side shot, closer angle of Serene climbing. We can see now that she is using suction cups to climb the building. As well, we get a better look at her appearance. She has red hair, and is wearing a black one piece jumpsuit, with a utility belt. In one of her ears, she has an earpiece.

Suddenly, Serene stops climbing, and puts a hand to her earpiece. The person on the earpiece's end is Serene's partner, NATALIE, an anthropomorphic squirrel who creates gadgets for Serene to use in her line of work.

NATALIE (V/O, over the radio):

I told you this would work!

SERENE:

Better than I thought.

After some more climbing, she finally stops at the window of a certain floor of the building. Serene takes one of her hands off of the suction cups, and grabs an object from her utility belt. It seems to be a knife, albeit with a button on it.

CUT: Close up of the knife. Serene presses the button on the knife, and the blade slowly turns a bright red.

CUT: Serene, she looks down, a bit nervous.

CUT: The city streets below from a dangerous height, illuminating with life.

BACK TO: Serene, trying top get over her vertigo by focusing back on what she's doing.

INT: SKYSCRAPER

A floor in the skyscraper, seemingly unused, and illuminated only by the city below. We can see Serene at the window, with the knife she pulled out earlier. Putting it to the window, she cuts through the glass with ease, making a circle slightly smaller then her.

With the handle of the knife, she pushes out the cut glass onto the floor inside, making a small clatter as it falls. She then carefully crawls through the hole; slowly so as not to lose her grip or make much noise. Upon getting inside, she puts a hand back up to her ear.

SERENE:

I'm in.

NATALIE (V/O, over the radio):

Alright, that's good! Very cool! Man, I can't believe we made it-

SERENE:

Don't get your hopes up yet, Natalie. There's still room for error.

Putting her hand away, Serene proceeds to walk offscreen.

CUT: Hallway, the walls are painted beige. In the foreground, an anthropomorphic badger is seen looking towards the camera, wearing a blue uniform. He seems to be a security guard. In the background, we see Serene enter this room from a door.

She immediately stops upon seeing the security guard, looking very alarmed.

CUT: A close-up on Serene, slowly grabbing something from her belt. It seems to be a syringe containing a green liquid within.

BACK TO: The security guard, looking somewhat bored, oblivious to the person behind him. Serene is slowly walking towards him.

CUT: Serene's POV, looking behind the guard as we approach him. At the last possible second, he turns around.

CUT: Serene, syringe in hand. She is swinging it towards the guard.

CUT: Front shot of the door Serene came out of. A struggle is heard offscreen between Serene and the guard. After a beat, the sounds stop.

CUT: Serene and the guard. The guard is lying on the floor, seemingly unconscious. Serene is on her knees, winded from the scuffle, but eventually gets back to her feet and walks away from the body.

CUT: A large square room, painted all black. In the middle of the room is a safe.

Serene appears onscreen, walking towards the safe.

CUT: Closer shot of the safe, focusing on its door. Serene appears onscreen, and kneels in front of it.

CUT: Close up on the door, we can see it needs a combination to be opened. Serene grabs the lock and begins to input a combination. The code turns out to be "06-19-49".

CUT: Serene. With a click, the lock opens, and Serene opens the safe.

CUT: The interior of the safe. The items within rather rudimentary, consisting of only a few stack of documents. Serene grabs these.

CUT: Front shot of Serene. She is smirking. She puts a hand to her ear.

SERENE:

Natty, I've got 'em.

NATALIE (slightly muffled):

Oh my- oh my god, you got them?! Awww, yes! I knew we could do this. Head on back, I'll be getting that champagne ready!

SERENE:

Much appreciated.

Putting her hand away, Serene looks down at the documents in her hands, obviously proud to have pulled it off again.

EXT: APARTMENT COMPLEX, NIGHTTIME

Establishing shot of a large apartment complex, it is night.

INT: SMALL LIVING ROOM, APARTMENT

Side shot, Serene is seen sitting down in a cream-colored room. This is our main character, SERENE. She has long red hair, and is wearing a white sweater and blue jeans. She is watching a program on a small television in front of her, on top of a small shelf.

CUT: Front shot of the television. The picture is in black & white. On the screen, we see two characters, an anthropomorphic elephant and pig. The elephant is wearing a chef's outfit, the pig looking at him at him angrily.

ELEPHANT:

Hey, those people had it coming!

PIG:

Still, you shouldn't be putting gasoline into the sandwiches!

A laugh track plays.

ELEPHANT:

Hey, at least we still made some profits, and even better...

The pig looks at him intrigued by what he's about to say.

ELEPHANT:

We don't have to pay for their medical expenses!

The pig begins to smile. Another laugh track plays.

PIG:

Hmm! Smarty, maybe you were onto something!

An applause sound effect begins to play. The picture fades to black.

CUT: Front shot on Serene watching. She chuckles slightly.

CUT: The television, it is showing the title card of the program.

TV ANNOUNCER:

Pork & Smarty will return after these messages.

CUT: Serene, who looks unamused. She gets up, turns off the TV, and walks off-screen to our right.

EXT: APARTMENT BALCONY

Wide shot of the balcony of Serene's apartment. It is dimly lit by a sole light that lays above the door inside. Serene is leaning over the edge of the balcony, observing the city.

Suddenly, knocking is heard from the front door, Serene turns her head around, surprised.

INT: APARTMENT

Close up of the doorknob, Serene's hand comes on screen, and opens the door.

The door opens slightly, and we pan up to see who was knocking, a lanky RAT wearing a light yellow polo shirt and white pants, along with a cap, which is covering their eyes. The uniform resembles that of a pizza delivery guy.

RAT:

Delivery.

CUT: Corner shot of Serene, who looks slightly confused.

SERENE:

You sure you got the right place?

BACK TO: The rat.

RAT:

I'm sure...

CUT: Close up of Serene, her eyes slowly turn downward.

CUT: The pockets of the rat's pants, a large knife is seen, he's got his hand on the handle.

CUT: Close up of Serene's eyes, her eyebrows quickly raise.

CUT: Wide shot of Serene at the door, looking behind her. The rat rams open the door, and Serene jumps back in time to not be hit by it. He enters the room, knife in hand and intent to kill in his eyes, slowly walking towards Serene.

CUT: Side shot of the two, the rat suddenly charges at Serene with the knife, both of his hands on the handle. She grabs hold of the rat's hands.

CUT: The rat, struggling to plunge the knife into Serene. He still looks dead-eyed, but there's a hint of exasperation in his face.

CUT: Serene, also struggling, looking angry but also scared.

CUT: The same side shot of the two, both struggling, but then suddenly, Serene grabs the rat's arms and swings him with force.

CUT: Front shot of the door to the balcony, surrounded by a large window. The rat enters the shot, and hits the door hard, he falls to the ground. Silence enters the room.

CUT: Serene, panting and looking at the rat, she is slightly scuffled up.

CUT: Close up of the rat's head, he slowly starts to get up, slightly moaning.

BACK TO: Serene, bewildered, shortly after, her bewilderment turns to shock and then horror.

BACK TO: The rat, his knife is jammed in his chest. He is still moaning in pain, he starts to slowly walk towards Serene.

BACK TO: Serene, still looking in horror, the rat comes on screen, arms spread out towards Serene. She takes a step back, knowing the would be assassin can't be saved.

The rat then lets out his last breath and falls to the ground. Serene looking at him.

Serene looks at the offscreen body, shocked and silent.

CUT: A phone on a table in the hallway of the apartment. Serene comes onscreen and immediately starts to dial someone, she is looking back and forth, worried.

She puts the phone to her ear. A dial tone is heard.

NATALIE (V/O, slightly muffled:)

Mmm...who is it?

SERENE:

Natty, it's Serene.

Natalie moans on the phone.

NATALIE (V/O, slightly muffled):

It's one in the morning! Go to sleep!

Serene then begins to looks flustered.

SERENE:

Listen, I need to make this short and sweet, I need to come to your house for a little bit, maybe lay low for a while...

NATALIE: (V/O, slightly muffled):

...w-what? What did you d--

SERENE:

I can't speak now! Expect me soon!

She abruptly hangs up the phone.

More coming soon.
