Kai looks at his fridge. Looks at the date and the time.
It's October, 18, 2021. And it's 11:03 AM. Gets concerned.

KAI

Oh my God!

Goes to the bedroom.

42 INT. DR. FRED'S OFFICE, FUTURE - DAY

KAI walks in, confused. DR. FRED is standing in front of him.

KAI

(Angry)

What the hell just happened, DR. Fred?

Why did you send me there?

And why didn't you tell me that you where going to send me to Travis?

Why?

DR. FRED

Kai, I get that you're upset.

KAI

Upset? Are you shitting me? I'm pissed! I'm broken, man!

You knew you couldn't have done that! You know how much the memory of Travis hurts me!

DR. FRED

I do, and that's why I had to do that.

KAI

What? What do you mean?

DR. FRED

You know that in order to be a Doctor, you have to past a test,

right?

KAI

What? That was my test?

Dr. Fred nods. Kai gets shocked.

KAI

Erm... So? Did I pass, at least?

After all that suffering?

DR. FRED

Not yet.

KAI

What?

DR. FRED

Do you remember what you told Travis?... Life has some rules that you must follow, but,

to be truly happy you need to rebel a little and create some rules of your own.

You don't have to do everything that you think you're supposed to do.

KAI

So... I could have saved Travis?

DR. FRED

No. That is one of the rules that you need to follow, no matter what.

Do you know why? Because it is easier to contradict it.

But that's not what this is about.

Kai nods, thoughtful. Goes away.

43 INT. ERICA'S BEDROOM - DAY

ERICA is sleeping. Wakes up, on a hangover.

ERICA

Oh, man... Ouch!

Gets up. Looks at the cellphone on the chest of drawers. Has two missed calls from Adam. Gets thoughtful and ashamed.

44 INT. DR. ARTHUR'S OFFICE - DAY

A car walks in. DR. Arthur is driving it. DR. Naadiah is with him. He parks the car.

DR. ARTHUR

So, do you understand now, Naadiah?

DR. NAADIAH

(Overwhelmed)

Yes... Yes. I mean, you didn't have to show me that.

I would have understood it anyway.

DR. ARTHUR

I'm sure you would.

Pause.

DR. NAADIAH

Why?

DR. ARTHUR

Pardon me?

DR. NAADIAH

Why now, DR. Arthur?

Why did you show me that now and not before?

DR. ARTHUR

Well, you never asked.

They get out of the car.

DR. NAADIAH

That's not exactly true, I mean...

You know that I was suspicious about this, your car...

DR. ARTHUR

And, now, everything is clear.

DR. NAADIAH

Everything? As in...

DR. ARTHUR

Well, that was a manner of speaking. The whole truth is never completely revealed.

There are always some things that remain to be explained.

Things that even I am not aware of.

DR. Naadiah says nothing.

DR. ARTHUR

So... I think you know what you have to do, right?

DR. NAADIAH

Yes.

DR. Naadiah walks to the door. Stops.

DR. NAADIAH

Thank you, DR. Arthur.

DR. Arthur opens the car's hood.

DR. ARTHUR

Any time.

DR. Naadiah goes away.

45 INT. ERICA'S LIVING ROOM - DAY

ERICA is calling Adam, concerned.

ERICA

Come on!

Erica goes to the bathroom.

46 INT. DR. NAADIAH'S OFFICE - DAY

ERICA walks in. DR. NAADIAH is sitting. Erica turns off the call.

ERICA

(Bitter)

What did I do wrong, this time?

DR. NAADIAH

Nothing.

ERICA

(Ironic)

Really? Wow, that's a twist.

DR. NAADIAH

Erica... I want to apologize. I...

I handled things really badly. But, you know,

I'm here for a long time and... I guess I got caught up on the rules of... all this.

Erica sits.

ERICA

Keep going.

DR. NAADIAH

And... Before, when we met, you were right.

ERICA

I was right? I... I broke a rule.

DR. NAADIAH

Yes, but... We got to do what we got to do, right? A rule is a rule.

Yes. And we should follow it. But what happens when we are not happy following it?...

Things are not black and white and you don't have to do the things that others tell you to do

or the things that you think that make more sense...

ERICA

Like...?

DR. NAADIAH

Like with love, Erica. I remember once you edited a book called 'The None'.

Do you have any idea why it received so many bad critics?

ERICA

Because they didn't understand how love should be lived.

DR. NAADIAH

Exactly! You see... You say that love should be objectivised.

That people should be practical. But, for example, for me - and certainly for many people -

love is the exact opposite of that. That rule that is on the book doesn't have to be followed, right?

ERICA

DR. Naadiah, that is not the purpose of the book.

It just tells you that you should stop looking for the perfect man.

DR. NAADIAH

You know what I meant.

Silence.

ERICA

What does that have to do with me?

DR. NAADIAH

Do what you want to do. Not what you think you're supposed to do.

Erica gets up and goes away, crestfallen.

47 INT. SARAH'S BEDROOM - DAY

SARAH is looking at the street. Watches Martin talking to an old woman. He's laughing. Sarah is crestfallen. Goes away. Walks through the door.

48 INT. ERICA'S OFFICE - DAY

SARAH walks in. ERICA is sitting.

SARAH

What do you want now?

If you're through yelling at me, I'm going back to my bedroom.

Sarah prepares to go. Erica gets up.

ERICA

I'm sorry.

Sarah stops.

SARAH

What? So... You're human?

ERICA

Yes! Very human! And I make tons of mistakes, just like you, your father... Just like everyone.

And I made one mistake with you, before.

I... I have some problems and...

SARAH

It's... It's okay.

ERICA

No, it's not and that's why I'm apologizing. You see, I told you that

you needed to be objective and pragmatic and that you shouldn't let old feelings get in your way,

but that's wrong. I mean, yes, you must stop using Heroin - that's a rule that you have to follow if you want to get better -

but I think you should embrace all those feelings and shape them into something good and healthy.

SARAH

Like... Go talk to Martin?

ERICA

If that's what you want to do.

SARAH

I don't want to do it. It's embarrassing.

I mean, he seems happy and successful and I'm...

Like this. I just can't.

ERICA

It's hard to do it. But you know that your gut wants to do that,

in order to get better. Make an effort, Sarah.

It's up to you.

Sarah sighs.

SARAH

Okay.

Erica smiles.

49 EXT. STREET, FUTURE - DAY

KAI is sitting on a bench. His phone rings. It's his mom.

KAI

I'm done, mom.

Kai disconnects the call.

KAI

I'm sorry.

ANDREA appears.

ANDREA

Here I am, baby! What's the big emergency?

KAI

Andrea... I... I have to talk to you. I mean, a definitive talk.

Andrea gets concerned.

50 EXT. STREET - DAY

MARTIN is talking on the phone. SARAH looks at him, on the other side of the street. Takes a deep breath. Approaches to him, embarrassed.

SARAH

Martin...

Martin notices her. Gets shocked.

MARTIN

Sarah?

SARAH

I... I need your help.

51 INT. ERICA'S LIVING ROOM - TWILIGHT

ERICA gets out of the bedroom, well dressed. Grabs her purse. Looks at the cell phone, thoughtful.

ERICA - V.O

Life may seem like a dictatorship.

There are things that you're supposed to do.

And you feel like if you don't do them, you will never be happy. But the thing is...

Nothing is black and white, hot and cold. Between those two sides, you can create happiness.

Your own happiness. And, to do it, all comes down to this: Sacrifice.

Erica puts the cellphone away and gets out.

52 INT. TOM'S LIVING ROOM - TWILIGHT

TOM sits on the couch, holding his camera. Plays it. We can see a footage of him opening Sarah's bedroom door. The door leads to Erica's office, being covered by light. We can see Erica's face in the middle of all the light. Tom gets surprised and nostalgic. Has tears in the eyes.

ERICA - V.O

Sacrifice what others expect from you, for the feeling of reunion.

53 INT. KAI'S LIVING ROOM - TWILIGHT

ANDREA is crying.

ERICA - V.O

Sacrifice the people that you feel you're supposed to be with...

54 EXT. MARSHALL'S FAMILY HOUSE - TWILIGHT

RITA gets out, happy. She holds a ticket for Kai's concert.

ERICA - V.O

For true love.

55 EXT. STREET - TWILIGHT

JENNY is walking. Holds shopping bags. Stumbles and the shopping bags fall. A MAN helps her collecting them. They look at each other and smile.

ERICA - V.O

Sacrifice the idea that you'll fail every time you try, for hope.

56 INT. TOM'S LIVING ROOM - TWILIGHT

MARTIN, SARAH and TOM are sitting. Sarah cries.

ERICA - V.O

Sacrifice a past that you don't want to deal with, for a brighter future.

Martin and Tom hug Sarah.

57 INT. THE SOUND ACADEMY - NIGHT

ERICA is standing in the middle of a big group of people.
Thoughtful. Smiles. Kai and his band appear. Everyone applauds.

ERICA - V.O

It will hurt, you'll feel miserable at first...

But if that's the thing that your heart truly needs,

then you must do it.

And, when you do it, you'll open the doors into a world of possibility.

The band starts playing and Kai starts singing. In, 2012,
Erica looks at him, delighted, while he sings. In 2021, Rita also looks at him, delighted.

KAI

When it's time to go

And you overcome the throe

Would you keep the memories aglow?

Would you stop the clock

Keeping us in Wonderland?

Or would you be locked

In the hourglass' sand?

'Cause the end is not forever

We can light the light after an effort

'Cause we belong to each other

And we'll be together

When we decide

That it's time

To make our time

You decide to keep moving

[Moving on]

And you keep struggling

With your path

[With your past]

Would you stop the clock

Keeping us in Wonderland?

Or would you be locked

In the hourglass' sand?

'Cause the end is not forever

We can light the light after an effort

'Cause we belong to each other

And we'll be together

When we decide

That it's time

To make our time

We're in different pointers

[They never stop moving]

And us, voyagers

In this twisted clock

Will eventually meet again

'Cause the end is not forever

We can light the light after an effort

'Cause we belong to each other

And we'll be together

When we decide

That it's time

To make our time

'Cause the end is not forever

We can light the light after an effort

'Cause we belong to each other

And we'll be together

When we decide

That it's time

To make our time

And us, voyagers

In this twisted clock

Will eventually meet again...
