DISSOLVE TO: EXT. IRAQ/IRAN RURAL NORTHERN BORDER JANE GOLD (30’s), a battle worn and very athletic American brunette Forced Recon Marine Lieutenant Colonel confidently stands next to the back gate of a desert camouflaged USMC Humvee looking across the infertile valley below her with a jaded eye. About a half mile away an eight man squad of American Marines are in a fire-fight with about thirty enemy terrorist. She looks up on a baron ridge to her left. A platoon of Iranian soldiers emerge from behind a hill on the Iranian side of the border lead by MAJOR AKBAR JABALAH (40’s), a powerful mustached goon barking orders as they move toward the Marine squad. 3D SUPER - IRAQ/IRAN BORDER, Present Day. Jane turns to the back of the humvee and opens the tail-gate exposing a stack of AT-4CS shoulder fired missile launchers and a few small arms. The Iranian soldiers begin to fire their weapons on the already out numbered Americans. Jane picks up her binoculars from the back of the Humvee and watches for a moment. She grabs a missile launcher, sights it and fires. The streaming missile leaves a vapor trail until it hits in a group of three Iranian soldiers and blows them into the air. Three more Iranian soldiers stop their attack on the Marines and start shooting at Jane. Jane aims and fires another missile launcher at the second three Iranians. The missile hits and blows all three across the battlefield killing them. Another group of four Iranian soldiers have stopped and looking toward Jane. One points as Major Jabalah shouts orders and gestures to shoot at Jane.
Jane takes another launcher. She braces against the Humvee and fires as gunfire rains down on her. The missile streams and it takes out the four Iranian soldiers blowing them into the air. Major Jabalah angrily fires his SIG 9mm automatic pistol at Jane missing her, because he is out of range. Another rough looking field worn Iranian platoon comes over the next ridge over from the first platoon and bares down on Jane. She fires another launcher at them and another. The launchers hit their mark blasting Iranian soldiers into the air. Major Jabalah is directing a squad of his men to shoot at Jane and the rest to attack the Marines. The second platoon’s sergeant waves to the major and directs his men to shoot at her also. The new rugged Iranians begin to lay down heavy fire on Jane. Jane kneels and turns her attention to the Marine squad as bullets hit near her. She calmly fires a missile targeting the major’s remaining Iranian troops that are moving in on the Marines. Jane’s missile hits the mark taking out three of his men. She aims another launcher and fires again. This time the missile takes out four terrorist and their leader. Two Iranian soldiers finally reach Jane advancing from her left. Jane throws her launcher down, quickly pulls out a 9MM Beretti and shoots them as they attempt to shoot her. A third troop that Jane didn’t see, shoots her in the back two times and Jane falls flat on the ground, face down in the dirt. The Iranian smiles and waves to his commander with his rifle as he walks to Jane and stands over her. Abruptly Jane rolls over and snaps the blade open on her PROTECH AUTOMATIC OPENER combat knife and stabs the man in the ribs.
As she twist the blade and attempts to wrestle him to the ground the frayed bullet-hole in the back of her bullet-proof vest is visible. The soldier gasp from his punctured lungs and falls to the ground dying as Jane pulls her knife out and cleans the bloody blade on his uniform. A new husky knife ready just breaks of blood to Iranian soldier attacks her with his survival and slashing at her neck. The tip of the knife the skin causing a slight cut and a small amount flow.
Jane dodges and cuts the aggressive soldier across the chest. She touches her own wound and sees, her hand is bloody. JANE (American New York accent) You son-of-a-bitch. She slashes again as the soldier moves in on her and cuts his arm a little. The Iranian back-off. He watches her and slashes at Jane. Jane cuts the big man deep across the front of his shoulder, down to the stomach as he comes in. The soldier bleeds profusely, but ignores it and positions his knife in a combat attack position, then rolls in hard on Jane, trying to stab her. Jane runs her survival knife deep in his stomach as he passes. He falls back to the ground dying. Jane looks up. Major Jabalah is about forty feet away, aiming his AK-47 automatic rifle at her. MAJOR JABALAH (Iranian accent) You’re dead. JANE You first. She rolls as bullets from the major’s rifle rip across the ground next to her. Jane grabs a .45 automatic from the small of her back and fires three shots. The bullets hit the major’s rifle stock and splinters fly. A large splinter hits him in the eyes still sticking out. He falls back bleeding profusely reeling in pain.
MAJOR JABALAH (in Iranian sub-titled in English) Shoot her. Shoot! An Iranian soldier hears him and turns from combat to shoot Jane. Jane instantly fires and hits the soldier in the chest. The man goes to the ground with a thud. Jane watches him closely and smiles looking at the wounded major. JANE Did you see that? Jane turns and she sees ten more Iranians closing on her. Suddenly CAPTAIN RICHARD STEINBERG (30’s), a strong looking Israeli soldier with three days of stubble and wearing an unmarked desert uniform comes from behind Jane’s truck carrying an Israeli NEGEV heavy machine gun with a two hundred round belt container slung on its underside. He begins to skillfully fire his weapon. Iranian soldiers fall across the battlefield while other scramble for cover. Richard turns his gun on the terrorist and begins to shoot. Three terrorist fall dead and the others take cover and return fire. A young Iranian soldier pulls the major up and helps him retreat. The Americans see what is happening and step up their defense, moving on the terrorist shooting them in wholesale numbers. Abruptly, a matt black Israeli STEALTH BLACK HAWK helicopter with no markings flies over shooting terrorist and Iranian soldiers. FREEZE FRAME FADE TO ANIMATION ROLL TITLE AND CREDITS End of Teaser

The Iranians and terrorist take cover from the Gatling guns onboard the chopper shooting back. Jane grabs an M4A1 Remington Carbine Combat rifle from the back of her truck and starts shooting. The few Iranian’s that are left head back for the mountain border with the wounded Major Jabalah in tow. Jane shoots at the Major, but is to far away. The Marine squad pursues the last of the terrorist troops in the same direction. The Israeli Black Hawk flies from the valley behind the truck and hovers. Richard looks at Jane. JANE (American New York accent) Who the hell are you. RICHARD (Israeli accent) Your commander wants to see you. (Jane hesitates) About Skyhook. JANE What a time to start that shit.

Our focus now is on Iran’s Nuclear system. You and Captain Steinberg are our first operatives. If you agree you will be killed off on paper and given a full closed casket funeral. Colonel Barton looks at Jane.
Jane looks at Captain Steinberg. She is thinking. RICHARD They’ve already done me. JANE I’m in. But skip the funeral. My mother passed and my dad’s to busy. COLONEL BARTON You will have crying relatives at your funeral. Colonel Gold nods. RICHARD The skyhook safe word that you use on the Iraqi/Iran border will continue to be your safe word in this operation. Colonel Barton is cheerful. COLONEL BARTON Okay then, we all agree. Colonel Gold will go to Washington for orientation then to Israel for a brief training program, after that, on assignment. JANE What’s in Washington?

(Jane is surprised) Your father is very proud as is Israel to have you aboard.
JANE Thank you... (under her breath) sort of. Jane looks at Colonel Barton as Lieutenant Goldberg sits down. He shrugs his shoulders and raises his eyebrows. COLONEL BARTON Thank you Lieutenant Colonel Goldberg... The Israeli Embassy party is put on by the ambassador to promote peace between the Israeli’s and their neighboring countries, but more precisely it’s for you to get ta know your enemies and your friends.

KIM (in North Korean subtitled in English) Asad my old friend. They shakes hands. Asad cuts Jane and Richard a hateful look. Jane looks at Richard. JANE Who are those rude son-of-abitches. Richard smiles. RICHARD The fat one is Kim Park, a diplomat at the North Korean Embassy, some say is a spy and the evil one is Asad Atash, the Iranian Ambassador. JANE Why in the hell would Israel invite these bastards? RICHARD This is a peace mission. JANE Peace my ass. Looks like those two ass-holes could use a good ass kicking... RICHARD You been in the field to long. This party is about peace, not kicking ass.

Glad to finally meet you both. (looks at Jane) I understand you colonel are close with Major Akbar Jabalah. JANE Never heard of him. ASAD Oh, I think you have. You put his eye out. Jane looks at him curiously. Asad holds up an iPhone with a picture of the major lying in a hospital bed with an eye patch over his bad eye. MAJOR JABALAH I am coming for you. Jane is amused. JANE Already tried that, how’s that working for ya, Popeye. Asad hangs up the phone as the major rants and puts it away while just looking evil at Richard and Jane. ASAD I think you should be careful... for the rest of your short life. JANE You should be careful right now, you arrogant fuck. I’ll cut you from ass to elbow with great pleasure. ASAD Such poor manners, typical American.
JANE And damn proud of it. MARY JABALAH (20’s), a very pretty Persian girl walks up. MARY JABALAH (Iranian accent) Oh excuse me. It’s so good to see you.

I’m Mary Jabalah, I work at the State Department. JANE Thanks Mary. Mary starts walking away. MARY JABALAH I’ll see you soon. We’re working together on your next project. Jane smiles and nods. Richard is flirtacious as he smiles. RICHARD She knows Asad, I wonder what that’s about?
JANE (V.O.) I don’t know, but I do know we need to stop screwing around with those two-faced bastards that talk out of both sides of their mouth and probably their ass too. Something has to be done before they nuke Israel and us. RICHARD Diplomacy is a bit more discrete. JANE Discrete gets people killed. RICHARD Relax, you are here to observe. DANIEL GOLD (60’s), a handsome graying man and the Israeli ambassador walks up with ISRAELI SERGEANT HIRAM ROTH (late 20’s), a handsome youthful man dressed in an Israeli army dress uniform.

JANE (sarcastic) Oh great. Thank you daddy. Hiram is amused. DANIEL You are welcome. You’re still my little girl, you know. Richard looks at Jane. RICHARD How does this work? You’re an American soldier and your father’s the Israeli ambassador to American. Jane smiles confidently as her father watches. JANE Well it’s pretty simple. Dad is Israeli and mom is American. I was born in New York and lived with mom after they split up. RICHARD Well then, you’re a duel citizen. JANE Yes, duel personality, duel citizen. a lot of duels. Richard nods and smiles. Daniel kisses her on the cheek and hugs her. DANIEL Who loves ya? Jane smiles. JANE Santa. DANIEL No, your father. I must mingle. Come by my quarters after this. Love you. Jane nods. Daniel and Hiram walk on. Asad passes by leaving the event and speaks as he walks.
ASAD We know about you. He walks on as Janes speaks. JANE Know this, Go f... Richard looks at Jane. RICHARD Don’t say it. We don’t want to be noticed. Jane is quieter. JANE Bug eyed bastard. RICHARD Back off. JANE Sorry Richard, all of my life because of ass-holes like him, I have had to look at the world through a gun sight. It’s time we stop them. RICHARD Maybe, but we can’t do it here, tonight. Jane gives him a look and smiles. Mary walks up with champagne for everyone. DISSOLVE TO: INT.

LILA (in Iranian sub-titled in English) Hello father. How are you? The major is rude. MAJOR JABALAH (in Iranian sub-titled in English) You go home and put on some decent cloths before the police arrest you. Don’t embarrass your father. LILA (in Iranian sub-titled in English) I just came to see how you are, not get a lecture on the morality police. Her father just looks at her. BANU (in Iranian sub-titled in English) Lila, please go, and do as your father ask. Lila walks out and turns at the door. LILA (in Iranian sub-titled in English) Mother, I am not coming home. I love you... and you too father, but you go to far. I’m a grown woman now. Her father looks at her in disgust. Banu looks at her daughter lovingly. BANU Lila, we love you. Don’t go LILA Sorry mother. Lila leaves. Banu’s eyes well up with tears. BANU Lila.
MAJOR JABALAH Let her go. She’ll be at home when you get there. BANU My little girl is gone. MAJOR JABALAH She’ll be back. Banu shakes her head, not believing. BANU That’s what you said about her sister. EXT. SECRET BRICK HOUSE - GEORGETOWN - WASHINGTON D.C. - DAY Jane pulls up with Richard out front of the house and parks her rental car, a black Porsche Carrera Turbo. Jane and Richard get out looking around. As they walk to the front door a man on a bike rides past going very fast. Richard goes inside his coat for a weapon. The man moves on past without incident. Jane and Richard relax and move to the front door where they are greeted by Colonel Barton. INT. SECRET BRICK HOUSE - GEORGETOWN - WASHINGTON D.C. - DAY Jane and Richard walk inside. COLONEL BARTON Morning Colonel, Captain. Follow me. They follow Colonel Barton down a hall to a closed door. He stops and opens the door and they go inside. Mary Jabalah stands by a lit five by six feet computer screen. Colonel Barton gestures to two chairs where he wants them to sit. The colonel stands next to them. COLONEL BARTON (CONT’D) This is Mary Jabalah. She works for the State Department, our chief Iranian consultant.
Jane and Richard nod. JANE We met at the embassy. Richard is suspicious. RICHARD Are you from Iran? MARY JABALAH Yes, my family still lives there Iran. RICHARD Colonel, do you think it is wise, on such a sensitive mission? Colonel Barton cuts him a look. COLONEL BARTON Mary is a trusted patriot. I have put my life in her capable hands many times. RICHARD I don’t like it. I am placing a formal protest with the council. COLONEL BARTON Place your protest, but remember when you are in Iran. The politicians are our enemy, not the people of Iran. RICHARD So noted. The colonel nods to Mary for her to begin. Mary smiles and points toward the screen that has a map of Iran on it with eleven nuclear location across Iran. MARY JABALAH This map shows the eleven nuclear locations in Iran. These locations range from uranium mines, missile silo’s and manufacture/development centers. In your case there are two important locations; both in the Great Salt Desert. (points with a laser) (MORE)

You will bring the agent back to Israel. Understood? JANE Yes sir. The captain nods.

Hiram gets up smiling. HIRAM (Israeli accent) You got lucky. Jane smirks. JANE Lucky my ass. You blinked.
Hiram is amused and quickly takes action. He grabs Jane and throws her to the ground, then puts his combat boot on her neck. HIRAM What makes you think you are so special. Jane grabs his foot twisting and flips Hiram. He hits the ground. JANE I’m not, I’m every woman. Hiram gets up with Jane. HIRAM You’re ready. Jane nods toward a boxing ring set up outside near their area where six Israeli soldiers stand around watching two other soldiers fighting. The two soldiers that are fighting/wrestling wearing Israeli military gear and tee-shirts fall and roll across the big ring. Jane looks at Hiram. JANE What’s that? HIRAM That’s combat training. It was copied from your ultimate fighting TV shows. JANE No shit, I thought that was fake. Am I going to train on that? HIRAM No, I understand you are already an expert in that field. JANE I still need to hone my skill a little. (whistle to get the fighters attention) HEY.
HIRAM Don’t do that, That’s Moses Mangoon, everybody calls him grinder, for good reason. JANE For real? Mangoon. Sounds... feminine. HIRAM What? Don’t screw around, he’s a cruel man and an expert at it. Jane looks toward Mangoon JANE HEY, BIG BOY. The fighters stop. MOSES MANGOON (30’s), a very powerful looking man with a shaved head looks her way pushing his sparing partner back a little. MOSES ( In Israeli sub-titled in English) You talking to me. JANE Speak English. I know you can. MOSES (Israeli accent) Bossy little wench. JANE Come on, I want to spar a little, to get some training time in. MOSES I don’t want to hurt you girly. JANE Are you afraid of girls? MOSES Are you crazy, or just like to get beat-up? JANE Crazy. MOSES Come on I’ll teach ya.

MOSES Some say Forced Recon Marine? JANE And damn proud if it. MOSES Doesn’t mean anything here. JANE It will in a minute. MOSES We will see. Moses moves on Jane and punches her in the head.

Jane smiles and moves in on him. She side-kick and Moses grabs her foot throwing her to the canvas. Jane gets up shaking her head. JANE Got lucky again.
Moses is amused. MOSES Lucky as a casino in Las Vegas. Jane charges him again and gets a straight arm knocking her back to the canvas. MOSES (CONT’D) (sarcastic) Oh sorry, that had to hurt. Jane gets up and charges Moses. He turns to the side and gives her a clothes-hanger as she passes. Jane fall back to the canvass. She looks up and blinks rubbing her chin. Moses smiles and looks at the men standing around the ring then glances at Janes. She comes up and grabs his arm twisting it behind him. Moses face shows the pain. She drops down behind him and sweeps her legs across his. Moses falls to the canvas with a thud. Jane stands over him and offers her hand to Moses pulling him up. Jane smiles. JANE Girl Pow-urr. Moses is amused and pats her on the back. MOSES What’s your name? JANE Jane, Jane Gold. MOSES You’re good and tough soldier Jane Gold. Jane smiles at her new friend Moses EXT. LONG WOODSIDE BUILDING NEAR THE TRAINING AREA - DAY Civilian Scientist DOCTOR ARIEL DREYFUS (40’s), an attractive bleach-blonde woman with cat’s eye glasses that are slipping down her nose, sticks her head out of the building door.
DOCTOR DREYFUS (Israeli accent) Colonel Gold may I see you for a moment please? EXT. SECRET ISRAELI MILITARY TRAINING CAMP - DAY Jane and Moses look toward the doctor. Hiram shades his eyes looking toward her. HIRAM She’s not scheduled to see you for two more hours. DOCTOR DREYFUS DON’T, don’t make me come out there sergeant piss ant. The soldiers around the ring laugh. Moses and Jane smile. Hiram nods to Jane to go. She talks as she gets out of the ring and walks. JANE (looks back at Hiram) Find out where Captain Stienberg is. HIRAM I don’t have to find out. He’s already on mission Skyhook. Jane nods and smiles as she walks toward Doctor Dreyfus that is patiently waiting. INT. LONG WOODSIDE BUILDING NEAR THE TRAINING AREA - DAY Jane walks to Doctor Dreyfus and they go inside. DOCTOR DREYFUS Thank you for coming. I have some things I want to show you. Doctor Dreyfus walks to a long table with a lot of gear on it. She picks up a pen-light flashlight.
JANE That’s novel, a little flashlight. You really have flare for inventing. Doctor Dreyfus smiles and points it at a thick sheet of metal anchored to the floor. DOCTOR DREYFUS Novel as lighting in a bottle. JANE So, where’s the gimmick? The Doctor clicks it. The flash light becomes a powerful laser. It burns through the thick metal like it was butter. Doctor Dreyfus clicks it off. DOCTOR DREYFUS This is one of the tools for your espionage work. JANE I like bright lights. DOCTOR DREYFUS You can only use it a couple of times, it takes ten hours to recharge. JANE Design flaw. Doctor Dreyfus cuts her a look, then puts on a foil colored very thin bullet-proof vest and hands Jane a loaded 9mm automatic. DOCTOR DREYFUS Shoot me... go ahead at any range. Jane takes the pistol and raises it to the doctors head. DOCTOR DREYFUS (CONT’D) No, dummy, the vest... Oh, I almost forgot. (she hands the colonel a vest to put on) Put it on and do it. Jane puts on the vest.
JANE I’m shooting you and I need a vest? DOCTOR DREYFUS Hurry up, this is wearing me out. Jane raises the pistol and fires two times into the doctors chest. The bullets bounce off and hit Jane in the chest. She falls back a little and looks down at the smoking bullets in her vest. JANE Wow. smokin. DOCTOR DREYFUS As you can see Jane, this vest is an important part of your wardrobe. JANE I’ll say. DOCTOR DREYFUS You get shot and they get shot. It protects and deflects, not only deflects but deflects straight, no odd angles. So your enemy gets the full impact. JANE Okay, let’s stick with the short version... This is great Doc. DOCTOR DREYFUS You got the point. Jane looks at her chest. JANE Got it. DOCTOR DREYFUS Jane, you must learn your equipment. Otherwise you are useless in the field. Jane picks up a star of David necklace looking it over, not hearing. JANE Yours? DOCTOR DREYFUS No.
She takes the necklace and holds it, then breaks the chain and throws it in a sandbagged bunker in the corner of the room. It blows up. JANE That’ll stop a jewelry thief, every time. DOCTOR DREYFUS It is effective. As we know the terrorist don’t like Jewish people and Americans. So, we built the necklace with a star of David and when they jerk it off to be rude and show contempt... JANE Rude gets your ass blown up and I get away. DOCTOR DREYFUS Precisely. Be sure and turn your head the shape charge will turn toward the people with the weapons, it’s magnetic... the jewelry also comes in American flags, British, you know and related things they hate. JANE Gees Doctor gadget, you got it going on. DOCTOR DREYFUS Yes we do. My American and British counterparts will be here in two days and you will learn more. One more thing... follow me. Doctor Dreyfus picks up a remote from the table. Jane walks with the Doctor to the back of the building past two working technicians. She pushes the remote and a metal door opens to reveal a beautiful camouflaged TOYOTA FJ CRUISER that is decked out with every all terrain option available; from push bars, to huge tires and wheels, fog lights and wenches. JANE Whoa, this is like Christmas. DOCTOR DREYFUS A gift from our Japanese friends.
MAKO (20’s), a robust smiling Japanese technician steps forward and bows at the waist. JANE Hello. Do you come with the car? Mako nods and starts to speak. DOCTOR DREYFUS Yes he does. He can fix anything, anytime, an excellent marksman and knows combat martial arts. JANE And drives like, Meatloafs, Bat out of Hell? Mako smiles and bows slightly. DOCTOR DREYFUS Meat what? JANE Never mind. It’s a cl... forget it. MAKO (Japanese accent) I am Mako. (bows again) At your service. JANE Great, I think. Mako is a complete gentleman, just waiting. Doctor Dreyfus walks back to the front of the building talking as she goes. DOCTOR DREYFUS Back to work Mako. We are on a tight schedule... Come along, one last thing for the day. Doctor Dreyfus stops at her table and picks up a black pistol that looks like any automatic. JANE I already know about pistols. Hiram sticks his head and part of his body in the front door. HIRAM I need the Colonel.
Doctor Dreyfus points the pistol and pulls the trigger. An electrical pulse shoots from the barrel and hits Hiram in the shoulder. He freezes and falls to the floor. JANE Holy shit. What have you done? The Doctor smiles. HIRAM Nothing, he is simply neutralized. The weapon sends out an electrical impulse and short circuits the victims nervous system. It is used when noise is a factor or you don’t want to terminate your enemy, like a scientist. Jane nods as Hiram is getting up. HIRAM (CONT’D) What happened? DOCTOR DREYFUS You’re fine, just a little test. JANE That was pretty bad, electrocuting Hiram that way. DOCTOR DREYFUS I was going to demonstrate on you. JANE Hiram’s good. Hiram has a curious look on his face. The doctor looks at Jane and clicks a lever on the side of the gun. DOCTOR DREYFUS You may set it for longer periods of unconsciousness by clicking to the next higher setting. JANE What else you got? Hiram shakes his head a little to become more conscious.

With all of this secret crap coming down, something big must be on the move, and you’ll be killed in a horrible way, and everybody will dance on your grave and cry happy tears, then they’ll put a cardboard marker on your grave, and then go on a picnic with some crazy terrorist and... GARY Okay. Okay, I’m a little negative sometimes. LARRY Why ask me anyway, nobody tells me nothin. GARY I bet we’re going after Iran, to knock out those nukes. Larry gives him a look. LARRY Here we go again... Maybe, maybe that’s why we got all those professor types up front. They look like real fightin machines.
Gary nods. GARY Scientist on the battlefield equals bad news. Larry rolls his eyes. DISSOLVE TO: EXT. SKIES OVER ISRAELI DESERT AIRFIELD NEAR TRAINING CAMP DAY The armed matt black unmarked C130T transport aircraft flies in on a very low and long angle near the ground and lands. It taxi’s to a desert camouflaged hangar next to the training area. EXT. ISRAELI SECRET CAMOUFLAGED HANGAR - DAY The cargo gate opens on the airplane and the two corporals walk out checking the gate where the crates in the plane will be unloaded. A few scientist types exit the front of the plane. LARRY This is it. Jesus old turf. GARY Man, stop that. You’re gonna get hit right in top of the head with lighting or something. LARRY Come on, Budda and those other guys turf is that way. He points. GARY Man, you are asking for it. LARRY Come on man. Those guy could joke around like anybody else. Look in the mirror dude. Check out that face.
EXT. SECRET ISRAELI MILITARY TRAINING CAMP - DAY Jane and Hiram look up as they walk out of Doctor Dreyfus’ laboratory then move toward the C130T aircraft. In the distance a fork lift is unloading the crates from the plane with the corporals supervising. EXT. ISRAELI SECRET CAMOUFLAGED HANGAR- DAY Hiram and Jane walk up looking at the crates. LARRY Hey, those are privileged access. You need to back-off. JANE Get some respect soldier, your talking to an officer. The corporal’s salute. LARRY Sorry, I’m looking for Colonel Gold. JANE I’m Gold. The corporal pulls a paper out of his front pocket and hands it to Jane with a pen. She signs. LARRY Thanks, it’s all yours. Doctor Dreyfus walks up. DOCTOR DREYFUS Where’s Doctor Thorne? LARRY Who? DOCTOR DREYFUS Doctor Theodore Thorne. The corporals look at each other. GARY The guy with the thick glasses.
A small man wearing a leather flight jacket with flight patches, thick glasses, thin tie and a rumpled white shirt rushes toward Doctor Dreyfus. DOCTOR THORNE (American Southern accent) Ariel. Ariel! It’s me, Theodore. Doctor Dreyfus smiles big and Theodore stops in front of her. They kiss and Theodore puts his hand on her butt. The corporals roll their eyes. LARRY Gees, no old sex in public. GARY Come on, have mercy. Jane looks at Hiram and Hiram shrugs his shoulders. Ariel and Theodore stop kissing and she looks at them. DOCTOR DREYFUS Colonel, Hiram, this is Doctor Theodore Thorne my American counterpart. He will be assisting in your support and training. DOCTOR THORNE Assisting? DOCTOR DREYFUS Joining me as an equal, with a huge male ego. Theodore is happy. JANE Nice to meet you Doctor. Hiram nods. DOCTOR THORNE Isn’t this great, outdoors and all. Doctor Dreyfus looks at Theodore. DOCTOR DREYFUS Where is Doctor Livingston?
DOCTOR DOYLE LIVINGTON (40’s), a man very much like Theodore with ruffled light hair thick glasses wearing a flight suit walks to them from the front of the plane. DOCTOR LIVINGSTON (British accent) I say, hello everyone. Sorry I’m late getting to my mission. Theodore left me to do the paperwork as usual. DOCTOR THORNE What’s as usual? You’re the copilot, they do the paperwork. Doctor Dreyfus looks at the others. DOCTOR DREYFUS This is Doctor Doyle Livingston of the UK. DOCTOR LIVINGSTON Hello you lovely creature. The corporals roll their eyes again. Doctor Dreyfus smiles. DOCTOR THORNE Down boy. She not on the market. Doctor Livingston looks at everyone else. DOCTOR LIVINGSTON Let’s get this show on the road. Time is of the... ah, it’s being wasted. DISSOLVE TO: EXT. LONG WOODSIDE BUILDING NEAR THE TRAINING AREA AFTERNOON Out back of the building Doctor Dreyfus, Jane, Hiram, Doyle and Theodore have gathered. They look down range at a large bulls-eye target. Theodore holds a shoulder held olive drab mini rocket launcher with a six rocket magazine and the corporals carry several more on their back.
DOCTOR THORNE This is part of your arsenal, a six round automatic rocket launcher. (he demonstrates) You point and take a picture of the target by pushing this red button on the side. Once the picture is in the mini computer on board. DOCTOR LIVINGSTON Don’t forget the button. Theodore cuts him a look. DOCTOR THORNE You push the button again and point or don’t point the launcher at the target. Bingo, when you hear the tone, the weapon is locked on target from your picture. DOCTOR LIVINGSTON Pull the trigger. Doctor Dreyfus elbows Doyle in the side. DOCTOR THORNE Pull the trigger. (he casually points in another direction and pulls the trigger, one rocket after another fires off in different direction finally hitting the target as Theodore takes different humorous stances until the magazine is empty) As you can see it is deadly and fully automatic. JANE Damn. DOCTOR LIVINGSTON Co-invented by yours truly. DOCTOR THORNE Yes, co-invented by my MODEST academic friend. An Israeli soldier/messenger walks to Jane and gives her a paper.
MESSENGER SOLDIER (Israeli accent) An eyes-only message for you colonel. Jane takes the message and reads it. CLOSE ON - the message from Colonel Barton: Colonel Gold, We have sent Captain Steinberg ahead of you for recon work. He was compromised and captured due to a double agent inside our organization, who has now defected to Iran. Soon he will be moved to Russia. YOUR IMMEDIATE MISSION (highlighted) OPERATION SKYHOOK. Recover the captain, terminate the nuclear capability of Iran and capture or kill the agent before he is transported to Russia and divulges more secret information. Your mission starts immediately. END MESSAGE Jane looks at the messenger and gives him the paper. He hands her a picture of the double agent and defector. Jane looks it over and puts it in her pocket. JANE Destroy that. The Messenger pulls out a cigarette lighter and burns it. Doctor Dreyfus, Doyle, Theodore and Hiram are watching and waiting. DOCTOR LIVINGSTON What ya got there Colonel? JANE Our mission is a go. Doctor Dreyfus, that long range digital earphone radio, that you oriented me on, get it ready for communications and standby. No one is to leave the radio unattended. It will be my only link to this support unit. Understood? (the doctor nods) Do each of you know the Skyhook operation. They all shake their heads yes. DOCTOR DREYFUS Yes, of course.
JANE Doctor Thorne, you and Doctor Livingston prepare every weapon available for operation Skyhook and be ready to deploy. (looks at Hiram) Well buddy. It’s me and you, saddleup. We leave in one hour. Hiram smiles. HIRAM I love this six-gun western talk. DOCTOR LIVINGSTON Me too, that saddle-up thing was great. The corporals discretely shake their heads. DOCTOR THORNE Come on. Lets get ready Doctor Thorne walks toward the plane with the corporals following. Doctor Livingston rushes after them. DOCTOR LIVINGSTON Yo Rambo, wait for me. Doctor Dreyfus walks to her laboratory. Jane walks with Hiram to the training building next to Doctor Dreyfus laboratory and starts inside while speaking to Hiram. JANE Lock and load Sergeant. I want you armed and ready to burn down some Iranian ass. HIRAM Yes sir, ma’am. INT. ISRAELI SECRET TRAINING FACILITY - AFTERNOON Jane blast open the door and goes to a locker. She puts on her foil bullet-proof vest, then an unmarked black uniform and a Colt 45 automatic shoulder weapon. She pulls out an M16 Carbine style weapon with a banana clip and an ammo belt. She checks it and slings the rifle, then checks her KABAR survival knife and holsters it. Hiram comes in dressed in combat gear like Jane as she is still putting weapons away in her pockets and on her uniform.
HIRAM Our gears packed. We’re ready to board. Jane nods and walks out with Hiram. EXT. ISRAELI SECRET TRAINING FACILITY - SUNDOWN They walk on board the matt black cargo plane carrying their back-packs greeted by the corporals. They see two technician’s watching large computer screens while operating their computers that are attached to metal desk bolted to the bulkhead. The plane starts up and the cargo door moan and whine as they close. The big aircraft taxis and become airborne flying at a very low altitude. INT. MARINE CORPS MATT BLACK C130T SPY AIRCRAFT - NIGHT Jane and Hiram are checking their gear. DOCTOR THORNE (AIRPLANE INTERCOM V.O.) Welcome aboard. I’m your captain. JANE That sounds like... DOCTOR THORNE (AIRPLANE INTERCOM V.O.) Doctor Theodore Thorne... I’ve checked in with Doctor Dreyfus. She has drone recons and armed drones in the air flying bodyguard for us. Jane and Hiram look at each other then toward the cabin. They see Theodore’s hand waving and then Doyle’s face looking back smiling and waving. Jane looks at Hiram. JANE What the hell? I thought this is a military special op’s mission? Hiram smiles and looks toward Theodore and Doyle. HIRAM The lines blurred theses days between science and soldier.
DOCTOR THORNE (AIRPLANE INTERCOM V.O.) Relax, I know what you’re thinking; scientist? He should be a soldier, well this doctor flies. I was an ace before you were born. DOCTOR LIVINGSTON (AIRPLANE INTERCOM V.O.) Relax, it’s all good. I’m monitoring this low altitude flight auto pilot that Doctor Thorne and I invented. This is our maiden voyage. In short we’re flying on top of the ground. DOCTOR THORNE And yes, Doctor Dreyfus is monitoring the radio. Oh, and Doctor Livingston was the top pilot in the UK, when they flew biplanes. But he flies like a friken sea gull. DOCTOR LIVINGSTON Hoorah. JANE Does he have a ... DOCTOR THORNE (AIRPLANE INTERCOM V.O.) And yes, Doctor Livington is our copilot. In this aircraft we have a pilot and two co-pilots. Doctor Livington’s co is Major Carmela Isaccs of the Israeli Air Corps. (they see her hand waving) Get ready to jump. HIRAM I hope they know what they’re doing. The cargo door begins to power open. JANE To late now. This mission is on. DOCTOR LIVINGSTON (AIRPLANE INTERCOM V.O.) This is a low altitude jump. Standby for the count down.
Jane and Hiram go to the back gate jump site. The corporals give them a thumbs up and check their chutes and harness. DOCTOR THORNE (AIRPLANE INTERCOM V.O.) Positions.... This is Doctor Thorne. When you jump, immediately open your chutes as you clear the plane. Your chute will glide when opened. It has gas canisters in the roof of your canopy to keep you airborne until it is safe for you to land. (an electronic board comes on with lit numbers counting down) Here we go, five four, three, two one... Geronimo! The First Corporal pats them on the back signaling them to jump. Jane and Hiram tumble from the cargo gate airborne. EXT. IRANIAN SKIES - NIGHT Jane and Hiram’s black chutes open immediately and they glide. As they get close to the ground gas canister pop open and blow against the canopy’s in an even spray. The parachutes float up and then slowly glide toward the ground. EXT. IRANIAN SKIES - NIGHT The matt black plane turns back toward Israel as Jane and Hiram float to the ground. Jane and Hiram hit the turf and roll. They get up folding their chutes. Jane and Hiram go behind a hill to get rid of the chutes and start taking off their jumpsuits revealing Iranian tribal gear. They put on black turbans and masks. Jane looks at a GPS on her wrist. JANE It’s there. Move out. She and Hiram start to walk toward some baron rugged looking mountains north of them slinging their rifles and ammo belts under their shrouds.
EXT. MOUNTAINS ABOVE THE IRAN URANIUM ENRICHMENT CENTER NATANZ - SUNDOWN Jane and Hiram crawl up on a ridge near the top of the mountain range that butts up against the facility. Jane pulls out a set of small binoculars and surveys the area. HIRAM We need to be very careful. They have foot patrols as well as helicopters on random schedules. JANE Richard’s down there. We’ll get him out tonight, after midnight. HIRAM There’s a cavern above us, let’s sleep there until then. Still looking through her binoculars. JANE How the hell are we going to blow that big son-of-a-bitch up. Hiram opens his backpack to show a small black box. HIRAM Until now myself and the inventor of this box are the only ones that knew about its existence. I am now authorized to tell you... All we have to do is set this box up in the facility. JANE So, you think that thing can blowup this big ass complex? HIRAM No, their own Quem supersonic ballistic missiles will blow-up the complex. When turned on, this sweet little invention will activate the missiles and function as a targeting device for them to strike. JANE Doctor Dreyfus? HIRAM Of course.
Jane smiles. JANE How many missiles do you think. HIRAM Probably the box will be able to lock in about twenty or so before they take counter measures. That’s enough. JANE We better be long ass gone by the time they get here. HIRAM The rogue agent is at another location. We can get him later. JANE So, we get Richard and blow this place up, then take out the agent while the entire Iranian Army is after us? HIRAM That’s it. JANE Okay... Let’s get some rest. They move to the cave. DISSOLVE TO: EXT. SECRET ISRAELI MILITARY TRAINING CAMP - MONITORING TENT SUNDOWN Doctor Livingston sits at a small table watching the sun go down drinking a cup of hot tea. The corporals walk up. DOCTOR LIVINGSTON Evening gentlemen. Sit down have a spot of tea. The young corporals smile at each other and sit with the doctor. LARRY Thanks Doc.
DOCTOR LIVINGSTON Where are you boys from? LARRY I’m from Fort Worth. The doctor looks at Gary. GARY I’m from Tulsa. DOCTOR LIVINGSTON I assume you mean Fort Worth Texas and Tulsa Oklahoma in the United States. The corporals nod. LARRY You think we’re going to have an all out war? GARY With nukes and all? DOCTOR LIVINGSTON You know, I worked at the Lockheed Martin aircraft assembly plant in Fort Worth when I was young. We were developing what is now the F16 fighter, it was once the Fsomething or the other and I had a girlfriend from Tulsa, she was so fine and hungry for love. I can still see her naked breast... GARY Yo Doc. LARRY Are you lyin? The doctor smiles. DOCTOR LIVINGSTON About the girl or the airplane. GARY Seriously Doc, are we gonna shoot it out with Iran.
DOCTOR LIVINGSTON Well boys, my best opinion is, live your life like there is no tomorrow and let God sort it out. (the corporals just look at him) He’s a good sorter. The corporals sits back. DISSOLVE TO: EXT. IRAN URANIUM ENRICHMENT CENTER - NATANZ - NIGHT Richard is being dragged by two Iranian soldiers through a porthole into the facility as an Iranian Sergeant shouts indistinguishable orders in his native tongue. INT. IRAN URANIUM ENRICHMENT CENTER - HALL - NATANZ - NIGHT The soldiers drag the weak, but struggling Richard down a marble hall. They turn into a large conference room. INT. IRAN URANIUM ENRICHMENT CENTER - CONFERENCE ROOM NATANZ - NIGHT The soldiers slam Richard into a waiting metal chair. Major Jabalah walks in wearing a gauze patch and a black eye patch over it. He nods to a soldier. The soldier Duck tapes Richard to the chair. The other soldier hits him in the face. MAJOR JABALAH Why are you here? (nods again and Richard is hit) Why are you in Iran? Richard just looks at him with his bloody face. DISSOLVE TO: INT. CAVE - NIGHT Hiram is sitting by a small fire in the back of the cave thinking as Jane watches the front.
HIRAM Colonel, You think we’re going to get into a nuclear fight with these people? Jane looks back at Hiram. JANE Maybe. But I don’t think those bastards are completely insane... Where you from Hiram? HIRAM Jerusalem, born there. JANE You go to school and make friends there. HIRAM Yes, I miss home. JANE Me too. I grew up in New York and spent some time in Tel Aviv with my dad. I was an under achiever, all I wanted to do was play video games. Hiram thoughtfully stares into the fire. HIRAM Me too, I joined the army to get a job. This is my life. JANE Yeah, me too. I’m a jar-head for life. HIRAM You think we’ll make it out of this? JANE You know, I once lived my life worrying about everything. One day I went to a Navy doctor and ask him for some medication to calm me down. He looked at me and said, “you don’t need medication, you need to learn to say fuck it”. HIRAM Did it work?
JANE Damn right, I’m not giving a shit right now. Hiram smiles. EXT. IRAN URANIUM ENRICHMENT CENTER - NATANZ - NIGHT Major Jabalah walks the center’s stone walls checking the guard post followed by two armed guards. A guard comes to a rifle salute. MAJOR JABALAH (in Iranian sub-titled in English) Good job, be careful. I got the word that we are a target of the Israelis. If you see aircraft, call the missile bunker right away. The major walks on down the line. DISSOLVE TO: EXT. CAVE - NIGHT Jane and Hiram come out of the cave. Jane looks at her GPS. It is beeping. JANE Richard’s in that building in the center. They see a huge government facility. Jane and Hiram start to walk. JANE (CONT’D) Hiram, go to the back of the facility and create a diversion and I’ll grab Richard. Meet us at the Skyhook location. HIRAM Got it. They move out.
EXT. IRAN URANIUM ENRICHMENT CENTER - BACK ENTRANCE - NATANZ NIGHT Hiram is moving toward the back of the facility. He stops and watches. Hiram sees two guards. He pulls his GERBER survival knife and works his way toward the men. EXT. IRAN URANIUM ENRICHMENT CENTER - SIDE ENTRANCE - NATANZ NIGHT Jane is moving along the building wall. A guards sees her. ENRICHMENT CENTER GUARD (in Iranian sub-titled in English) Halt. Hands on your head. Jane turns and looks at him. The guard walks up to Jane holding his rifle on her. JANE (points) Holy shit! The guard does a split-second glance in the direction she pointed and Jane hits him with her fist as hard as she can then kicks him in the groan. When he bends over, she kicks him in the chin and he falls back on the ground knocked out. Jane unloads his weapon and throws the bullets across the parking lot, then moves inside the building. INT. IRAN URANIUM ENRICHMENT CENTER - HALL - NATANZ - NIGHT Jane is moving down the hall looking at her GPS. She pulls out her black pistol made for her by Doctor Dreyfus. Two guards emerge from the conference room. They are caught off guard. Jane shoots them with the black pistol and the pulse knocks them against the wall. They fall to the floor shaking from the shock. Jane steps over them moving into the room. She sees the badly beaten Richard taped to a chair. Two men are beating him. They stop.
FIRST IRANIAN GUARD (in Iranian sub-titled in English) WHY ARE YOU HERE? Richard just looks at them. The First Iranian Guard looks at the Star of David necklace around his neck that is tucked under his tee-shirt. He pulls it out and jerks it from Richard’s neck as the second guard looks closer. Richard tips his chair and falls back as the necklace explodes killing both guards. Jane draws her survival knife and goes to Richard cutting him free. RICHARD I’m glad to see you. JANE Yea, me too. Can you walk? RICHARD No, I can run. JANE Let’s go. She hands him a 9mm automatic from her belt. Suddenly Major Jabalah rushes through a side door. MAJOR JABALAH GUARDS! Jane instinctively throws her knife. The major dodges and puts up his hand to guard. The knife goes through his hand and sticks to the door trim pinning his hand. He grimaces in pain. Janes pulls her 45 automatic from her shoulder holster and pulls on Richard to follow. MAJOR JABALAH (CONT’D) I’m coming for you. He struggles to get his hand loose and finally does as Richard fires two shots at him. He ducks to the floor just in time to save himself. Jane and Richard run down the hall. Two guards run from an office and start shooting.
Richard and Jane shoot back taking them down almost immediately. They continue to run. Hiram runs toward them from the other end of the hall. HIRAM Don’t shoot it’s me. A wounded guard shoots two times and hits Hiram in the shoulder the bullets deflect and hit the guard as Hiram falls back. JANE Doctor Dreyfus? Hiram recovers, smiles and glances at the guard then pulls out his black box pushing a large red button. It begins to beep. Jane looks at Richard then Hiram. JANE (CONT’D) Hurry up. HIRAM All right. I just got shot. Jane smiles and nods. Hiram puts the blinking black box inside a massive vase next to the wall and he hurries toward Richard and Jane. A NEW IRANIAN GUARD (20’s), an average Iranian man turns the corner and shoots at Richard. NEW IRANIAN GUARD (in Iranian sub-titled in English) HERE THEY ARE! Hiram shoots him. Richard looks at Hiram. RICHARD I see you still want to be first at everything. HIRAM First is best, everything else is last. They move out the side door and cross the parking area to an Iranian ZULFIQAR 2 Main Battle Tank.
A guard on the roof top behind sand bags shoots at them. Jane shoots him while on the move. He fall to the ground. Jane, Hiram and Richard get in the tank. EXT. OPEN DESERT, 5 MILES FROM IRAN URANIUM ENRICHMENT CENTER - NATANZ - NIGHT Out in the desert a dozen missile silos begin to open. The huge missiles blow fuel steam as they ready themselves for launch. A half a dozen Iranian soldiers run out of an underground bunkers and watch the missiles rise for launch out of control. INT. IRANIAN ZULFIGAR 2 MBT TANK - NIGHT Hiram painfully sits down in the driver’s seat of the tank. HIRAM Somebody load-up while I get us on the road. Jane loads a shell using the automatic loader and Richard gets on the machine gun. JANE Go around the main gate and move up that draw on the West side of the facility, there’s open desert from there. HIRAM I’m on it. We got to get at least a couple a miles away before the missiles get here. Hiram engages the drive and the tank moves. EXT. OPEN DESERT, 5 MILES FROM IRAN URANIUM ENRICHMENT CENTER - NATANZ - NIGHT The missile nose cones are sticking out of the silos as the missiles continue to move up. The first missile out starts it’s rockets. Then another and another until about twenty are launching. The scientist are pointing and yelling.
EXT. IRAN URANIUM ENRICHMENT CENTER - NATANZ - NIGHT The tank that Jane and her group are in speeds toward the front gate while thirty armed Iranian troops shoot at them with small arms. The major comes out of the building with a surface to air missile. Richard turns the machine gun on the major as he fires. The missile is to close to lock on and hits the back corner of the tank and glances off becoming airborne. It explodes spreading shrapnel across the complex, killing a dozen Iranian soldiers. The major is angry and frustrated. He jerks out his automatic pistol and starts shooting as the tank moves closer to the gates. INT. IRANIAN ZULFIGAR 2 MBT TANK - NIGHT Jane talks on her radio as Hiram moves the tank out of the complex. JANE Doctor Dreyfus sent Skyhook central to designated rescue location. (the answer is garbled) I hope she got that. Richard sees a platoon of heavily armed Iranian troop moving toward them. INSIDE TO OUTSIDE - He fires a rocket from the external pods mounted on the side of the turret. EXT. IRAN URANIUM ENRICHMENT CENTER - GATES - NATANZ - NIGHT The rocket reaches the troops and hits the gate post exploding, blasting soldiers everywhere. Hiram drives the tank through the soldiers and turns toward the mountain pass shooting a charging Iranian tank on the way. EXT. MOUNTAIN PASS ABOVE THE IRAN URANIUM ENRICHMENT CENTER NATANZ - NIGHT The tanks stops. Jane, Richard and Hiram get out.
They see missile flying toward the Enrichment Center. JANE My God, are those nukes. Hiram smiles. HIRAM Yes, but the box armed the missiles, not the nuclear warheads. Jane is oddly amused. JANE Doctor Dreyfus. Hiram nods. Three heavily armed Iranian SHAHED 285 LIGHT ATTACK HELICOPTERS fly the area working their spot lights looking for the tank. Jane walks to a stash of goods left there for them and removes the desert camouflaged tarp. JANE (CONT’D) Come and get it. This is out ticket out. There are three unmarked M1030M1 USMC JP8 diesel motorcycles, a stack of rocket launchers, assorted automatic weapons, ammo and a few grenades. Suddenly a chopper’s light spots them. Jane grabs a LAW rocket launcher and shoots at the helicopter. A direct hit and the chopper is out of control going nose down into the mountains. Richard grabs an M249 U.S. Machine gun with an ammo bucket clipped to the bottom of the barrel and starts shooting at a company of troops rushing up the ravine toward them. Hiram takes a grande launcher and fires at an approaching helicopter that is firing on them. He manages to hit the chopper. The chopper burst into flames crashing into the troops that Richard is shooting at. Jane slings a 12 gauge RED JACKET Drum-fed scattergun with a silencer/suppressor on her back, then rolls a motorcycle out and starts it.
JANE (CONT’D) Richard, can you ride? (Richard nods) Go to the Skyhook check point. We’ll be right behind you. Richard gets on. RICHARD Be sure you are. JANE Don’t get caught. Richard rides away. HIRAM Trust me, he won’t. JANE Sort of like the last time? HIRAM Sort of. Jane unslings her shotgun and shoots an approaching Iranian soldier in one smooth action. The first missile hits the facility in the background, then another and another until about twenty have ravaged the place lighting up the night sky. Hiram is shooting more Iranian troops as they attack his position. Janes grabs a second bike and starts it. JANE Hiram, get your ass on this bike and meet me at the Skyhook Check point. Hiram grabs the bike and gets on. HIRAM Get on your bike. I’ll cover you. Jane gets on and fires the bike up. Hiram throws his machine gun away and rides on with Jane. Major Jabalah rides up in a SAFIR, an Iranian copy of a Willis Jeep.
He see his troops still shooting in the direction of the long gone trio. He stands in the vehicle with the light from the burning facility in his background. MAJOR JABALAH (in Iranian sub-titled in English) Stop firing. STOP! (it gets quiet) Any man that brings me their head gets one hundred thousand Toman... A head. The troops roar and take off after the trio. The Major sits down shaking his head and his driver moves out. EXT. OPEN DESERT - GREAT SALT DESERT OF IRAN - DAWN The three motorcycles speed behind a ridge in front of a rock outcropping. They park the bikes and get off dirty and exhausted. JANE Glad to see you made it Richard. RICHARD Thanks, there are Iranian troops everywhere. Jane goes to a few rocks and moves them.
There is a trickling spring running between the rocks. She cups her hands and catches water then drinks and washed her hands and face. JANE Come on. There’s fresh water. Washup and fill your canteens. Hiram goes to the spring and drinks. HIRAM I never thought water would taste so good. Richard fills his canteen and sits drinking.
JANE I got a radio message on the way here. These crazy bastard mined the straits of Hormuz and we are in a navel battle with their ass. That speeds up our process... We got to terminated the nuclear missiles stashed in this desert. Five miles that way. (points) Our double agent is there running the facility. Hiram sits down. HIRAM It’s a two for. JANE Your command center thinks we got twenty-four hours before this side of the world goes nuclear. Richard lies back. RICHARD I think command is right, mining the straights is just camouflage to keep everybody off guard while they hit Israel. JANE All the more reason to be sure we do our job and cancel those missiles. HIRAM Let’s hold up here until tonight, we can’t operate in daylight. RICHARD Yeah I need a break anyway. JANE All right. I’ve rescheduled our Skyhook pick-up for tomorrow night, right before dawn, if we’re not crispy critters by then. RICHARD I’m beat.
JANE Before you get to comfortable, we need to dress those wounds and clean our weapons. (they look at her) That’s an order. Jane takes out a first-aid kit from a stash left for them. She begins to check their wounds. HIRAM When you’re done, I’ll take the first watch. Jane nods as she works on his wound. JANE I gotta get this bullet out. It’s not to bad, I can see it. Jane takes some forceps from her kit and digs for the bullet. HIRAM Holy Shiiite! That hurt. Richard is relaxing and smiling. RICHARD My father once said, grit your teeth and bare it. HIRAM Right. Got any painkillers? RICHARD Do you think, we’ll go nuclear? HIRAM I do. Those bastards have been wanting to wipe out Israel since we started. Jane comes out with the bullet, looks at it and throws it away, then dresses the wound. JANE Listen-up boys. We’re pretty beatup, but we got a job to do. So, buck your asses up, nukes or not. Richard and Hiram nod. Richard drifts off as Jane looks at his wounds. Janes finishes and relaxes. DISSOLVE TO:
EXT. SECRET ISRAELI MILITARY TRAINING CAMP - AIRFIELD - DAY Theodore looks over the matt black aircraft engines and tires wearing his old leather flight jacket. He checks a series of rocket pods on the wings while mechanics check everything out. DOCTOR THORNE Good job men. Mount those quad fifties in the nose, below the radar, just like in the back. I’m going to need a good gunner this trip. ISRAELI MILITARY MECHANIC (Israeli accent) Get Tommy Roth. He can shoot like Jessie James, dead eye on anything. Theodore smiles. DOCTOR THORNE Good, go get him. The mechanic nods. Doctor Dreyfus walks up as the mechanic leaves. She grabs Theodore’s butt and smiles. DOCTOR DREYFUS Hey Theo. DOCTOR THORNE Control yourself, Ariel. She smiles and pats his butt, then walks back to her laboratory talking. DOCTOR DREYFUS I didn’t come for that. I came to tell you the run is for tonight. Pick Jane and her people up fifteen minutes before dawn. DOCTOR THORNE I’m ready. Did you get recon to check out flying over Syria. DOCTOR DREYFUS Yes, The French will fly their southern border keeping them busy while you slide through into Iraq, then it’s home free to Iran.
DOCTOR THORNE That’s my girl. DOCTOR DREYFUS Theodore... Come by before you go. She walks on. DOCTOR THORNE Wear the red teddy. Theodore watches her go acting like a teenager. DISSOLVE TO: EXT. OPEN DESERT - GREAT SALT DESERT OF IRAN - LATE AFTERNOON Major Jabalah rides up on a ridge with his driver in their Iranian Jeep. The major looks across the valley below. All he sees is the expanse of a great desert range. Ten truck loads of soldiers pull up and stop behind him. A few officer’s get out and mill around speaking to the men in Iranian as the sun slowly goes down. MAJOR JABALAH (in Iranian sub-titled in English) They are out there somewhere. DRIVER (in Iranian sub-titled in English) Are we going to the Khatami facility? The major nods and they drive on. EXT. OPEN DESERT - GREAT SALT DESERT OF IRAN - NIGHT Jane is waking up. She sees Hiram sitting with his hands on top of his head and two Iranian soldiers are holding Iranian NORINCO CQ assault rifles pointed at his head. One soldier points his rifle at her. JANE (in Iranian sub-titled in English) Okay, relax, your win.
FIRST IRANIAN SOLDIER (in Iranian sub-title in English) On the ground. The second soldier pulls on a star of David necklace that Hiram has around his neck. SECOND IRANIAN SOLDIER Shoot them they are Jews. He jerks the necklace from Hiram’s neck. Hiram turns his head. The soldier looks at him curiously and the necklace explodes blowing his head off. Jane looks at Richard. Richard is still sleeping. Suddenly Richard rolls over and shoots the last guard in the forehead. He falls. Two more soldiers come out of the rocks shooting. Richard shoots one and he falls dead. Jane is on the last soldier as he attempts to shoot her in their struggle. His rifle fires several rounds and hits the ground near Richard and he rolls out of the way. Jane jerks out her knife and stabs the soldier in the neck. He falls. Jane looks around. JANE Somebody heard that. Let’s get the hell out of here. EXT. GREAT SALT DESERT OF IRAN - MOUNTAINSIDE - NIGHT An Iranian patrol of twenty soldiers move across the rocky hillside toward Jane and her crew. The leader stops and listens and signals for his men to follow. EXT. GREAT SALT DESERT OF IRAN - ROLLING PLAIN - NIGHT Major Jabalah’s driver stops their Iranian Jeep. The major looks around listening. He looks at the driver.
MAJOR JABALAH (in Iranian sub-titled in English) (points, motioning for the trucks behind them to follow) Over there. Go, go. The driver drives on. EXT. SECRET ISRAELI MILITARY TRAINING CAMP - NIGHT Doctor Dreyfus is looking at a large monitor set-up under a camouflaged tent. She tinkers with a remote that has a joystick. Four technicians work on wiring, the monitor and two more work on a large black X47B robotic fighter jet drone that sits on a launch platform in the background on the runway. Theodore walks up.

OPEN PLAIN - GREAT SALT DESERT OF IRAN - RAILROAD TRACKS AND PARALLEL DIRT ROAD - NIGHT The speeding drone bares down on the Iranian truck convoy. It’s 50 caliber machine guns open fire strafing the entire convoy, wreaking two trucks spilling soldiers all over the road. The major looks back and taps the driver on the shoulder telling him to speed-up. He then motions for the trucks to follow. Two Iranian desert camouflaged SAEQEH fighter jets burn up the sky headed straight for the drone.
The American drone fighter does a tight bank and heads straight for the jets, firing all four 50 caliber machine guns. It runs out of bullets and fires two heat seeking missiles. The missiles swing wide and bank into the vapor trail of the jets as the drone speeds past getting shot at. One missile goes straight into the back of the jet nearest the missile and the Iranian fighter explodes in mid-air. Jane, Richard and Hiram watch the dog fight as they make their way down the hill. The second drone missile is gaining on the Iranian pilot as he maneuvers to evade. The Perisian pilot drops down on the deck and the missile is locked on. The pilot takes his fighter thought a mountain pass and is clipped as he turns by the missile causing him to crash into the side of a low cliff shattering into pieces. The drone is high in the sky doing a hard back left flying back toward the convoy. It fires four missiles as soldiers in the trucks shoot at it. The missiles hit four separate trucks blowing them into the air. Jane, Richard and Hiram blast out of the foot hills and speed to the side of the train.

Hiram goes to the back door. It is locked. He pulls out a 7.62 WHISPER suppressor/silencer automatic pistol and shoots the lock, then opens the door. Jane and Richard go out with him carrying three rocket launchers each on their backs. EXT. SPEEDING TRAIN - NIGHT Hiram goes to the door of the car behind theirs. He tries it and it is locked.

Hiram and Jane are pinned down twenty yards from Richard fighting with their own group of soldiers. Suddenly Theodore’s matt black aircraft flies over shooting missiles and machine guns, killing a lot of Iranian soldiers. Theodore stays low. He dips his wing for a tight turn around to do another run. Just outside the exit, he opens his cargo gate. Doctor Livingston and the corporals are standing in the back gate waving. They push a huge wooden crate out with balloon ballast on each side to keep it from turning over and mini parachutes to slow it down. The crate slides to a stop not to far from the blown out front gate. The matt black aircraft flies away. While the soldiers are attempting to recover, Jane and Hiram run for the crate. Richard follows. They shoot their way to the big box. They hear a roar inside the box. Suddenly the crate breaks open. They see Mako driving the tricked out FJ CRUISER hanging half way out of the crate. He hits the gas and blast on out of the giant box and slides to a stop next to them. MAKO Hurry.

Doctor Livingston grabs a rifle from the rifle rack and lays down cover fire. The plane hits a bump and the first corporal falls out holding onto the back gate wrench cable. Jane grabs the corporal and pulls him in, then looks down to see a ammo box caught in the door. She kicks it loose and the gate begins to close. Suddenly bullets hit all around her from the Iranians.

MARINE CORPS C130T TRANSPORT AIRCRAFT - DAWN Richard and Hiram are looking out a small window in the belly on the aircraft. HIRAM Get me a parachute. I’m going back for her. RICHARD Count me in too. Doctor Livingston is caught up in the moment. DOCTOR LIVINGSTON Damn right, me too. HIRAM Doc? The two computer hacks sitting against the bulkhead just give them a look and keep pecking away on they keyboards. DOCTOR LIVINGSTON I’m completely capable. Theodore steps through the porthole. DOCTOR THORNE Listen-up. She’s a good soldier and by no mean without skills to survive. You are going no where. HIRAM You don’t tell me what to do. DOCTOR THORNE Listen up mister. I tell you and everybody here, but Doctor Dreyfus what to do. If you don’t like that take it up with your commanding general at YOUR court martial. HIRAM Sorry sir.
DOCTOR THORNE Forget it. We go back to the base and wait until we hear from her. (Richard and Hiram look away) Besides, she still has a mission to finish. You didn’t get the defector.

INSIDE TO OUTSIDE - The major and his troops are down in the valley moving away from Jane’s location with a scout pointing the way. Jane sits back down and relaxes looking at the pictures of her targets. Jane wipes the sweat away from her face. CLOSE ON THE PICTURES - a picture of a handsome Caucasian looking man with ALI CONNNOR written across the corner in black marker. The second picture is of DOCTOR WIN TEHRANI and written across the corner in marker is his name. She puts it away and looks at her side. It is red and inflamed.

Doctor Dreyfus watches her monitors while Doctor Livingston sleeps in his chair still holding a magazine. 3D SUPER - TWO WEEKS LATER Doctor Thorne walks in. DOCTOR THORNE What about Jane? Doctor Dreyfus looks up from her computer screens. DOCTOR DREYFUS Got a GPS fix on her implant homing device. She’s in the desert hills not far from Iraq, but she’s not moving or talking on the radio. DOCTOR THORNE Do you think she’s alive? DOCTOR DREYFUS Yes, I think so. Her GPS moves a few feet once in while. I suppose it could be wolves or something moving her body around. Theodore’s face crunches up and he looks a little grossed out. DOCTOR THORNE Damn Ariel, that’s harsh. Besides, she our friend Daniel’s baby girl. Let’s stay positive. DOCTOR DREYFUS Maybe, Jane’s lying low. I got Intel that her man is in Tehran now. Someone’s got to get him before he’s moved to Russia. Doctor Thorne leans on the table near Doctor Dreyfus. DOCTOR THORNE Let’s standby for a few days. Give her a little time to get on target.
DOCTOR DREYFUS I’m worried. The longer she stays out there, the higher the odds of her getting caught. DOCTOR THORNE Things have cooled off with the Iranians, since they can’t blow anybody up. We got a little time. DOCTOR DREYFUS We need someone to go in and find her, maybe help her or do the job, if she’s dead. DOCTOR THORNE Not yet. A few days can’t hurt, then we go. Doctor Dreyfus pours a high yellow colored liquid in a coffee cup and takes a drink. DOCTOR DREYFUS Tea? DOCTOR THORNE Are you kidding, looks like urine. DOCTOR DREYFUS OH shit! (Theodore looks at her seriously as she smiles) It’s really a very rich hot lemonade... (Theodore shakes his head) Call Washington and get them to send over some unmarked cruise missiles, incase she’s not dead and we have a shoot out to get her out. DOCTOR THORNE Not gonna happen. As far as they are concerned this matter is closed. We’ll have to use what we already have. Doctor Dreyfus pulls up a picture of a stealth jet on her computer screen. DOCTOR DREYFUS I’m not leaving her out there, under any circumstances.
DOCTOR THORNE I’m with you. I know Hiram wants to go... and Richard. They are the best we have. Just wait until I give you the word. Doctor Livingston looks up from his slumber.

By the time you get there, she’ll be in the open desert and need all the help she can get. Richard is thinking. RICHARD Let’s do it. Richard walks toward a row of tents. DOCTOR DREYFUS Meet me back here in thirty. RICHARD You got it Doc. INT. TENT - NIGHT Hiram is sharpening a ISAK army survival knife. He looks up as Richard walks in and keeps sharpening. Richard starts packing gear for his trip. RICHARD Get your shit together, we’re going after her. HIRAM Let’s get Mako to go and drive that All-terrain PUMA that Doctor Dreyfus invented. RICHARD The what? HIRAM Yeah, I’ve seen it. It’s got guns all over it, bullet proof and it gives all-terrain a whole new meaning. The thing is... ah, futuristic. Richard slings his pack over his back and walks out as Hiram throws a few things in his canvas bag and follows.
RICHARD Let’s go. Time is not on our side. EXT. ISRAELI SECRET TRAINING CAMP - AIRFIELD - NIGHT Hiram and Richard are uniformed in black with no markings and carrying their combat gear walking to the running aircraft that is loading gear and ammunition. HIRAM Be sure and let it be her idea and we’ll get it. RICHARD Got it. Mako drives up in the desert camouflaged PUMA with two huge canvas bags lashed to the front and back. MAKO Hello soldiers. HIRAM Mako. Are you going. MAKO Yes, Doctor’s orders. RICHARD She’s pretty smart. HIRAM Read my mind like a freakin psycho. RICHARD The English word is psychologist. HIRAM Whatever, she nailed it. RICHARD She always nails it. INT. MARINE CORPS MATT BLACK C130T SPY AIRCRAFT - NIGHT Mako drives the PUMA in the cargo bay of the plane guided by the corporals as Hiram and Richard enter. Theodore walks up looking in the bay.
DOCTOR THORNE Fasten your seat belts. We got no cover tonight, except for a couple of drone fighters flown by Doctor Dreyfus. LARRY Don’t worry, we got the laser. DOCTOR THORNE Yes, that’s right. Doctor Livingston will be using his experimental laser radar scanner hoping to give us advance warning and good weapons coverage. The corporals look at each other. Doctor Livingston walks in cheerfully. DOCTOR LIVINGSTON I’m here... (everyone is looking at him) What? Am I late, my deodorant? INT. MOVING VAN CAB - NIGHT Jane watches the road closely as she drives at 80 MPH. Lila and win are quiet just watching the road. LILA It is to quiet, something’s up. JANE Did your first husband commit suicide? LILA No, I think there is usually more traffic. JANE Chill, we’re almost home. (looks at Win) Doctor, do you know how to handle gun? Win nods. DISSOLVE TO:
INT. MARINE CORPS MATT BLACK C130T SPY AIRCRAFT - NIGHT A flat scene TV is bolted to the wall showing Jane’s GPS signal moving out of Tehran. Eyes Only signs are painted on the wall. Full small arms gun racks are next to the TV screens. The corporals are checking anchor straps on the PUMA while Richard and Hiram check their weapons. The computer geeks are tapping away on their keyboards as the aircraft engines start. Theodore walks into the bay from the cockpit. DOCTOR THORNE Doctor Dreyfus got a call from Jane. She’s got the defector and the traitor. She also has a woman with her. (looks at Mako) Is that thing a six passenger. Mako smiles. MAKO Eight passengers and eight cylinders... of electric coils. DOCTOR THORNE Okay then. Theodore goes to the cockpit and sits with the copilots. Doctor Livingston looks back at everyone. DOCTOR LIVINGSTON We had quad fifty’s installed. That should help with any intruders. Everybody smiles or makes a noise. Mako looks at Richard and Hiram. MAKO Get in and fasten your seat harness. We go down with the PUMA. Hiram and Richard look at each other. The cargo door goes up and the black plane taxis, then goes full throttle and blast down the runway finally becoming airborne.
EXT. SECRET ISRAELI MILITARY TRAINING CAMP - AIRFIELD RUNWAY NIGHT The cargo plane climbs as two black drone fighter jets taxi and fly toward the secret cargo plane. DISSOLVE TO: EXT. OPEN DESERT - GREAT SALT DESERT OF IRAN - NIGHT The moving van speeds ahead on a dirt road toward Iraq. Up ahead they see lights pointed toward them on the road. Janes keeps driving and watching. LILA That’s a patrol. What now? JANE Don’t worry. We’ll crash through. EXT. SKY - OPEN DESERT - GREAT SALT DESERT OF IRAN - NIGHT Theodore’s black aircraft flies in low, not far off the ground behind the road block. The cargo gate opens and the PUMA rolls out the back surrounded in an inflated rubber balloon. EXT. OPEN DESERT - GREAT SALT DESERT OF IRAN - PUBLIC ROAD NIGHT The balloon hits the ground bouncing as Theodore banks left and flies away. The PUMA continues bouncing down the road toward the road block. It hits the two pick-up trucks blocking the road, smashing them and bounces again finally rolling to a stop. Jane stops the van watching the scene. The four soldiers at the road block watch in awe. A few small charges blow the bolts loose from the PUMA that hold the balloons on. The balloon falls away and the Puma turns toward the soldiers at the road block. It begins to fire machine guns at them. The Iranians duck behind the wreckage as bullets fly. The PUMA turns toward the van.
Janes, Lila and the Doctor rush out of the van and take cover. The PUMA turns back to the Iranians and blast a short burst at the soldiers again and waits. The PUMA turns back to Jane’s group and rolls toward them. The Iranian soldiers run into the desert. The metal top on the PUMA opens like a cockpit on a jet. Inside is Mako, Richard and Hiram smiling. MAKO Let’s go. We don’t have much time. Jane goes to the back of the van and opens the gates then the trunk. She pulls out Ali wrapped in the blanket she gave him. Janes pulls her pistol and motions for him to move toward the front of the van. Lila and Doctor Tehrani are getting in the back area of the PUMA designed to haul eight troops on jump-seats lined around the bay. Jane pushes Ali to the PUMA and punches him in the back with her pistol. Ali gets in with Jane following. JANE Hey fellas. Good to see you. This one is Ali the traitor. Puts some draw-tites on him. (Hiram does it) This is Lila my Iranian friend that is running away to America and this is Doctor Tehrani, a nuke scientist defecting to the West. MAKO Hello, we got to go. The PUMA’s top closes as Mako speeds away making dust on the rough road ahead. Abruptly over the hills comes a fully armed MI24 Iranian defense helicopter. The chopper picks up the Iranian soldiers and becomes airborne again. They fly toward the PUMA.
INT. PUMA - NIGHT Jane is looking back at the helicopter JANE There’s a chopper dead on our ass. Mako looks at a video screen on his dash. MAKO Jane under the seat is a door. Open it and grab that SAW-MAG 249. It’s loaded with a hundred fifty rounds. See if you can do them in. Jane opens the top of the turret, it flips up and back like a sunroof. She stands through the hole in the roof. EXT. SYRIAN PLAINS - SKY - NIGHT The mat black aircraft is flying a steady course. In the distance are two MIG25 Soviet built, Syrian flown jet interceptors closing fast. INT. MARINE CORPS MATT BLACK C130T SPY AIRCRAFT - NIGHT Doctor Livingston looks at his radar screen. DOCTOR LIVINGSTON We have been made, there are two MIG25 interceptors dead on our ass. MAJOR ISAACS (Israeli accent) We’re five miles from the border. WE can’t out run them. DOCTOR LIVINGSTON We got to fight. DOCTOR THORNE Put that laser on them. See if it works. DOCTOR LIVINGSTON All right, but I never tried it on a moving target. MAJOR ISAACS Maybe they won’t have time to move.
Doctor Livingston looks at his radar screen and pushes a green button. Yellow lights come on around his screen. Metal gears grind outside the plane. The corporals look toward the cockpit. GARY What the? LARRY They turned on the new laser. We can use our screens now. DOCTOR LIVINGSTON (AIRPLANE INTERCOM V.O.) We have two MIG25’s approaching from the East. Man your guns. The corporals go to two computer screens bolted to the wall. They put on harnesses to hold them in place and pick up joy sticks. Larry and Gary flip their toggles and the screens come on showing the MIG’s. LARRY I’ll take the one on the left. GARY Yours or mine? LARRY Ah... mine. DOCTOR THORNE (AIRPLANE INTERCOM V.O.) Where’s Tommy Roth? The corporal gets on the intercom. GARY He’s in the gunners nest. DOCTOR THORNE (AIRPLANE INTERCOM V.O.) Wake him up and tell him to man his guns. If you miss, he’s on. GARY Yes sir. Larry climbs a metal ladder leading to the gunners nest in the tail of the plane. He sees Tommy sleeping. The corporal shakes him.
LARRY Tommy, (opens his eyes casually looking at Larry) You’re on man. We got MIGS on our ass. Tommy sits up gets on his guns flips some switches and sights through a computer screen then looks though a slit of a window in the tail of the plane. It is to dark to see. He looks at the corporal. TOMMY (Israeli accent) I can’t see them. I’ll do it in brail. (the computer makes a few noises as Tommy makes adjustments) They are targeted. They’re Syrian. Are we fighting with them now? LARRY Yeah. TOMMY Do we splash them or wait? LARRY Call Doctor Livingston. Tommy gets on the intercom. TOMMY Doctor Livingston. DOCTOR LIVINGSTON Go ahead Tommy. TOMMY I got the MIG’s targeted, do I do them in or stand by? DOCTOR LIVINGSTON If they get tone before Larry and Gary get my laser to do it’s magic, drop them from the sky like Wyatt Earp. Tommy looks at Larry. Larry shrugs his shoulders. TOMMY Roger... Larry, who’s this Wyatt guy.
LARRY Some guy from... Ah, Florida. Tommy nods. Larry leaves talking. LARRY (CONT’D) Don’t miss Zombie man. Tommy goes about lining up his shot. INT. MARINE CORPS MATT BLACK C130T SPY AIRCRAFT - COCKPIT NIGHT The three pilots eyes scan their instruments. The laser beeps signalling it is time to target. Doctor Livingston pushes a lever on a joystick. DOCTOR LIVINGSTON Larry, you and Gary work your magic. EXT. MARINE CORPS MATT BLACK C130T SPY AIRCRAFT - NIGHT Two long slender doors open on either side of the tail section of the aircraft. An electronic gear sound is heard. Two Laser cannons rotate out a few inches. INT. MARINE CORPS MATT BLACK C130T SPY AIRCRAFT - NIGHT Larry and Gary are using their joysticks to fire the laser weapons. LARRY Shoot Gary, you’re right on it. Gary pushes a button yelling like he’s playing a video games. GARY Holy moly! EXT. MARINE CORPS MATT BLACK C130T SPY AIRCRAFT - NIGHT The laser cannons rotate a little and a bright blue beam goes straight to the MIG’s.
EXT. SKIES NEAR THE MARINE CORPS MATT BLACK C130T SPY AIRCRAFT - NIGHT The MIG’s nose pushes forward slightly and a thick flat mirror pops up deflecting the laser back to the Matt black spy plane. Hitting in Tommy’s area. They begin to fire Gatling guns at Tommy’s area. The lasers lights go out. They are jammed. INT. MARINE CORPS MATT BLACK C130T SPY AIRCRAFT - GUNNER’S NEST - NIGHT Tommy sits next to a hole in the wall of his area with a smoke covered face and windblown hair. He gets on his guns and shoots back while at the same time pushing buttons to launch missile. EXT. SKIES NEAR THE MARINE CORPS MATT BLACK C130T SPY AIRCRAFT - NIGHT The MIG’s are caught by surprise as Tommy’s missiles hit them head on. The pilots eject and the planes hit the ground in a ball of fire. In the distance twenty MIG’s race toward them as they fly low over a border crossing station into Israel. The MIG’s fly right up to the border and turn, flying North along the border. INT. MARINE CORPS MATT BLACK C130T SPY AIRCRAFT - NIGHT Doctor Thorne looks at a rear view screen. DOCTOR THORNE That was close. Better check on Tommy. Doctor Livingston gets up and goes to the back. DOCTOR LIVINGSTON I got it. Major Isaacs is busy flying. MAJOR ISAACS We had better fly south and jam their tracking radar, before we actually go back to camp. They have a tracking lock on us now.
DOCTOR THORNE Make it happen. Major Isaacs turns the aircraft south across the desert. She flips some switch to jam enemy radar watching her computer screens. Her computer screens fade and come back showing two courses of flight, one South and one Southwest. She touches the screen and an arrow starts moving along the southern course. She turns the aircraft back Southwest. DISSOLVE TO: EXT. OPEN DESERT - GREAT SALT DESERT OF IRAN - DIRT ROAD NIGHT Jane’s battle is still going on. She puts down a stream of automatic rifle fire at an attacking helicopter. The helicopter fires back and Jane ducks inside the bullet proof PUMA. She gets up and shoots again. The chopper fires a missile. Jane aims and rips off twenty rounds of automatic rifle fire at the missile, just before it gets to her. The missile explodes in mid-air. Another missile is on the way. JANE Mako, we got a missile headed up our tail pipe. MAKO Got it on the monitor. Suddenly a flash of a hundred lights of decoys blast into the air high above PUMA. The rocket follows the chaff decoys. When the missile is into the chaff they all explode blowing up the missile. A third missile is fired from the chopper while Jane shoots at the helicopter. The helicopter is hit and the turbine engine starts to smoke. Janes sees the missile coming. She gets in the PUMA. The missile hits the PUMA from the back flipping it in the air and rolling it off the road, down a shallow hillside.
The helicopter is loosing altitude and spirals a little, finally hitting the ground and skidding across the landscape. Janes rushes everyone out of the PUMA. Hiram helps Richard out. He is injured badly. Mako and Lila get the prisoners out as Jane fights off Iranian soldiers getting out of the helicopter. The Major immerges shooting his AK-47 at Jane. Jane looks behind her. She see the Iraqi border with Israeli soldiers and America tanks waiting at the border, all aimed at the Iranians. Colonel Barton stands in front waiting with his counter parts from Britain, Australia and Israel. Janes looks at everyone. JANE Get everybody over the border. HIRAM Mako, I’m staying to help the colonel. You’re in charge get moving. Jane smiles and keeps shooting at the advancing Iranian soldiers. Mako and the rest of the group start limping toward the border. From the horizon five Iranian helicopter become visible speeding toward Jane and her people. From the hillside a group of ten MEK Iranian rebels surface and fire shoulder held surface to air missile launcher (SAMS) at the helicopters. One chopper turns and shoot most of the rebels. All five helicopter are hit and crash at random locations. Two choppers careen toward Jane and Hiram. They jump for cover as the choppers crash into the PUMA. The major shows up in a Ural 375D Iranian Army transport truck standing up in the passengers side of the topless truck with a dozen men in the back. They blast across the desert billowing dust out the back. Jane points.
JANE There that son-of-a-bitch comes again, like a flea on a dog’s back. HIRAM You want to stand and fight or try for the border. JANE We fight. Jane’s radio comes on. DOCTOR DREYFUS (RADIO V.O.) Colonel, acknowledge. JANE Go ahead base. DOCTOR DREYFUS You must destroy the PUMA. We can’t let it get in the hands of Iran. Use you laser. Just set it on max and stick it in the ground with the laser down in the ground. You have thirty seconds to get away. Jane is disgusted. JANE Roger, just one more thing. DOCTOR DREYFUS We don’t have much time. The entire Iranian Army is headed straight for you. JANE All right. Get somebody on standby to get our bodies out if we don’t make it. You no, no evidence. DOCTOR DREYFUS I sorry, I do understand... out. Hiram looks at her a little surprised. HIRAM I’m not going to die here. The truck stops and the twelve soldiers get out with the Major and his driver.
MAJOR JABALAH THIS IS IT. ONE OF US GOES HOME, THE OTHER TO THE GRAVEYARD. JANE I PICK YOU. The soldiers start shooting. Jane and Hiram shoot back. The major is hit and falls. Lila is almost to the border looking back when she sees her father down and breaks, running toward her father. LILA (sub-titled in English meaning father) Baba! Baba! Jane stands and yells at Lila. JANE Go back. Go back. Suddenly Jane is hit in the back with three bullets. She falls forward and the three bullets deflect straight back to the soldier that shot her. He is shocked and falls on the ground wounded. Lila stops looking at Jane and then her father. The major raises up a little. MAJOR JABALAH Go back Lila. Go back. The major falls back to the ground. Mako comes after Lila and pulls her toward the border as the others cross over. The soldiers look at the border and then Hiram. They get in the truck with the driver and he drives away. Jane rolls over and gets up watching with Hiram. HIRAM For a minute there, I thought that vest was not as good as the doctor said.
JANE If she says it, it works. They smile at each other. The soldiers in the truck roll over a hill out of sight. Lila looks toward the border and sees her mother with Colonel Barton. She looks back toward her father and continues with Mako. Jane goes to the PUMA and sets her laser charge then walks away. The major gets up and limps to Jane as the PUMA explodes and burns. Jane and Hiram help Major Jabalah to the border and their waiting friends. A huge cloud of dust boils over the horizon as the Iranian Army rolls toward the Iraqi border. Jane, Hiram and the major stop and look back, then turn and walk on toward the border and their waiting army, a few feet away. JANE (CONT’D) Sorry about your hand. The major’s good hand goes to his belt and pulls out Jane’s survival knife. She looks at him with concern. The major hands her the knife as they walk. FREEZE FRAME FADE OUT.
