    HACKSAW, young female hacker has uncovered all government secrets is
    on
    the run from the authorities who are out to silence her. She is
    sending
    a series of messages to the world to release the secrets before the
    government agencies find her.
    Back Story - HACKSAW
    ===================
    HACKSAW Transmits
    Tasha, 21, science buff, uber geek and latterly fashion model. Born
    and
    raised in Sydney along with her younger brother Stephen by academic
    parents Clary and Catherine.

    Painting
    o 2001 u oThe Puppet Masters or How the Web Was Wonoe u a
    self-created
    puppet show.
    A happy upbringing until the disintegration of her parentAEs marriage
    when her mother developed early-onset Alzheimers. Catherine was
    placed
    in care and regretfully/thankfully passed away when Tasha was 18.
    Clary
    had been a psychological mess for the prior 8 months and skipped out
    before the funeral and has never been heard of again. Tasha has cared
    for Stephen since he was 16 as well as exploring her explosion as a
    technological wunderkind, a foreseer and creator of innovation. Her
    simple (child's play) web-software designs became cornerstone
    achievements and secured her financial success even at this early
    age.
    But TashaAEs real spark ignited when she found an outlet for her
    inquisitive energy and intelligence amongst the elite hacker
    community.
    Blessed with aecamera-loves-herAE good looks and a strong personality
    she
    was soon sidetracked by the talent agencies offering paying gigs that
    lead to international invitations. Stephen had grown up quick and was
    calling the shots in his own life, so, on more a devil-may-care whim
    than a career choice; Tasha accepted the incessant contract
    invitations
    and left Stephen for Paris, Milan, Tokyo and New York.
    TashaAEs life quickly became hectic, constantly in demand, fun but
    frantic. Even so, her first love remained her fascination and
    connection with the hacker world. Her status as grand master of her
    clan a title she was competitive enough to maintain. She was of
    course
    aware of the constant risks but the thrill of breaking down and
    owning
    the Digital Machine is an addictive elixir.
    But when TashaAEs l33t taskforce access a deep-cover computer
    facility
    they break the window into an unknown world and discover a viperAEs
    nest
    of deep conspiracies, cover-ups, other-worldly threats and inhuman
    acts
    of terror. Their hacking is detected and they quickly find themselves
    running from forces they could never have imagine existed. Forces
    known
    only as THEM that put all of their lives in jeopardy and end in death
    for most of the crew.
    TashaAEs brother was one of her crew who made the fatal mistake of
    believing he would not be discovered, that he was untraceable. Only
    when it was too late did he realise what a miscalculation he had
    made.
    As her friends and family disappear TashaAEs resolve is cemented.
    With
    the ever-present danger of detection looming like a shadow Tasha
    makes
    the only decision left to her. She must champion the cause of free
    will
    and the right to be informed and expose her foe and their secret
    installation called The Stack.
    The Stack is a storage facility located beneath the desolate
    wasteland
    of a nuclear weapons testing ground, a vast computer core holding
    everyone on the planetAEs information, everyoneAEs secrets. Her first
    campaign of this digital war must be to reveal The StackAEs complex
    encrypted secrets to an innocent world, a world thatAEs been asleep
    and
    needs to be woken. Secrets so astounding that when the world is woken
    the change will be irreversible, viral.
    Tasha holes up in a pay-by-the-hour dive hotel she remembers from an
    heroin-chic photo shoot to develop her strategy. She prepares for a
    life that is not of her choosing but one that sheAEs determined to
    fulfil. A week creating false but wearable personas; creating ways of
    living in the world that will keep her one step ahead of THEM.
    Her life never seemed so real, so focused. Tasha Rose is gone, she is
    now oHacksawoe.
    Hacksaw takes the risk and catches a bus to Canada, then, using her
    own
    passport for the last time, catches a flight to Cuba. She charms her
    way aboard a container vessel bound for Sydney. Why Sydney? ItAEs
    where
    she knows, where she feels safe. As the container ship enters Sydney
    Harbour on a moonlit night she dives overboard and comes ashore.
    Over the next week she finds a safe place in an inner-city warehouse
    and sets up all the hardware sheAEll need to access The Stack, create
    a
    secure signal for transmission and install security surveillance. She
    nicknames this core the CRAYFISH. Her incognito modus operandi is as
    a
    bicycle courier, ordering and delivering on behalf of fictional
    companies. A busy week but sheAEs had plenty of time to develop this
    plan on the ship journey. Her plan is that this safe place will house
    the master core and will only be accessed by remote and that sheAEll
    stay on the move for the safety of the core.
    Things are going to plan, she believes her enemy hasnAEt detected her
    nor have locals noticed her. Truly underground and feeling in
    control,
    she collates a dossier of information hacked from The Stack.
    Partly as test transmission, partly as announcement, Hacksaw
    repeatedly
    sends out several 10-second sms and mms messages to millions of
    random
    recipients world wide stating oHacksaw. Now weAEre watching THEM.
    Countdown to live signal aoe She does not detect any signal capture
    or
    attempts at interception and so believes that the sub-network she has
    set up is secure.
    But regardless, as a failsafe, she sets up a mirror, a sham
    transmission station with the plan to start that transmission source
    first and monitor it during her actual broadcast - a red herring to
    gauge her enemyAEs tactical response and to give her some escape time
    if
    needed. She will never underestimate THEM again nor forget what they
    are capable of.
    Hacksaw is the director, but a new system a self-aware intelligent
    programme written by Hacksaw is the packet editor. Every live shot
    seen
    by HacksawAEs audience will be from a camera source controlled by
    Hacksaw u laptop camera, handy cam, mobile phone, captured security
    camera footage, 24/7 web cameras etc.. Stock footage played by
    Hacksaw
    will be sourced from The Stack. At the start and end of each mobisode
    bandwidth interference imagery will signify carrier leeching u
    Robin-Hooding pay-per-view bandwidth to capture transmission. Her
    broadcasts will always be battling disruption and reacquisition of
    signal.
    Back Story - THEM
    =================
    THEM
    Born from the perceived need by the US Government to control a
    no-questions-asked elite killing force, the first recruits into this
    secret force were drafted from POWAEs rescued at the end of the
    Korean
    War.
    These subjects, already mentally unstable, were deemed perfect for
    the
    inhuman experimentation they were about to endure; an experiment that
    would backfire terribly in the following decades.
    Known only as RECALL ONE this Top Secret study set out to implant in
    the subjectsAE minds a false outcome to the Korean conflict and
    indoctrinate a different world, a world reality that would only be
    visible to them. They were brainwashed to believe they were engaged
    in
    a clandestine, unseen war.
    To purge and reformat the subjects took almost a year but the outcome
    was deemed a resounding success. These drones performed perfectly and
    their fanatical belief that anyone could be an enemy of the state was
    absolute. They lived for their orders and a chance to fight.
    Insulated from the outside world these new drones were fed a constant
    diet of manufactured propaganda. Allowed to interact only with each
    other and their handlers the intensity of their belief structure
    became
    obsessive. When sent out for missions there behaviour was faultless,
    they could calmly interact with the public secure in the fact that
    they
    believed they were the only ones who knew the real truth. Their
    targets
    would never know they were coming and after a mission the dronesAE
    memory of their role would be wiped away. They would revert to a safe
    state of control.
    Throughout the 50s and 60s their numbers slowly increased to evolve
    into a secret army called THEM. THEM contained three types of
    operatives; Handlers, Drones and Sleepers. Handlers would recruit,
    indoctrinate and manipulate subjects; Drones were the proven
    workforce,
    the soldier assassins (several notable assassinations have never been
    traced back to them) and Sleepers, who were now part of the community
    living a normal life oblivious to the secrets locked away inside
    their
    brains until triggered.
    But when one of THEM starts to suspect his indoctrination and
    glimpses
    a hidden agenda inside the orders heAEs been given, he incites a
    chain
    reaction, a viral revolution amongst other THEM members. These
    disaffected align to a new fanatical belief; that inside everything
    they know lays conspiracy. They coup and create a breakaway faction.
    The now rogue THEM start to amass information on everyone and
    everything in the world via clandestine control of the underground
    packet switching network known as ARPANET (Advanced Research Projects
    Agency Network).
    Entirely unknown to the outside world due to their extraordinary
    training in the covert arts the new THEM quickly grow in numbers and
    power. They insert a sleeper in the Government, a Special Liaison
    officer answerable to no one.
    The Special Projects Construction Bill is passed inside the masking
    bureaucracy of a paper flood and a monitoring station is built
    underground, surrounded by 60ft of concrete and steel. A monitor
    screen
    and loud speaker surrounded by lexan encased in a circular steel
    vault
    encircled by THEM Drones accessible only by the sleeper agent
    (Special
    Liaison) through a secure door labeled ANNEX ZERO underneath the most
    secure building on the planet, the Pentagon.
    No government knows directly of the existence of THEM, only of the
    consequences of their power, a power that has been proven must be
    feared and respected at all costs.
    THEM are now the hidden leaders of the planet, a military sect
    answerable to no one, a collective of fanatical protectors of the
    worldAEs secrets and power and to all intents and purposes they
    donAEt
    exist.
    But inside THEM their dark secret is unraveling. Years of
    brainwashing
    are taking its toll and a new thought process is evolving inside a
    few
    of THEM, a thought process ignited by a rouge hacker sharing her
    secrets to the outside world.
    This seed of free thought, this leak must be stopped at all costs.
    Back Story - THE S.T.A.C
    ========================
    THE S.T.A.C
    [THE S.T.A.C (Subterranean. Tactical. Analysis. Core)]
    The STAC is a gigantic storage facility located beneath the desolate
    wasteland of a nuclear weapons testing ground, a vast labyrinth which
    at its centre contains a massive computer core holding the planetAEs
    information, everyoneAEs secrets. HacksawAEs mission, the first
    campaign
    of her digital war, must be to reveal The STACAEs complex encrypted
    secrets to a naive world.
    Storylines
    ==========
    Episode 1
    Hacksaw is in direct communication with the penulitmate hacker
    located
    high in the building adjacent to hers and is feeding him Intel on
    approaching soldiers which we see via security cams. She pleads for
    him
    to get out but he knows itAEs too late oGet the signal out! Tell
    everyone about the STACoe. Hacksaw spins to see the adjacent
    buildings
    floor explode out into a fireball oNO!oe
    We realize the preceding sequence was pre-recorded when Hacksaw
    appears
    on screen stating she doesnAEt have much time, she is the last of her
    kind and that they will now stop at nothing to prevent her exposing
    their secrets to the world.
    As the signal degrades Hacksaw appears one last time to state oThis
    is
    Hacksaw, now we are watching them!oe
    Episode 2
    From a skyscraper rooftop Hacksaw sets up a red herring transmission
    station to gauge her enemyAEs response time (she guesstimates 2
    mins).
    She then reveals, a secret underground computer core known only as
    The
    STAC, the incredible library of conspiracyAEs and cover-ups it
    contains
    and the little she knows about its fanatical protectors who will do
    anything and everything to stop her sharing itAEs revelations weekly.
    By the time Hacksaw makes it to the street below she looks up to see
    her pursuers encircling the buildings rooftop in Blackhawk choppers.
    She makes her escape.
    Episode 3
    As Hacksaw races to the airport she reveals another conspiracy hacked
    from The STAC.
    For centuries hidden beneath the Vatican is the most unholy of sites;
    a
    giant vault filled with the worlds possessed. And now itAEs full.
    Outside the airport Hacksaw sees herself in a sniperAEs sights, the
    laser target clearly locked on her forehead, she is staring down the
    barrel of an unseen gun. A bus enters frame and a bang is heard.
    Did Hacksaw survive?
    Episode 4
    Hacksaw still on the run reveals another conspiracy from her files.
    Top-secret NASA footage of the Mars Rover uTime lapse film reveals
    unknown shadows falling over the Rover but each time the on-board
    camera spins around only strange marks in the sand can be seen but no
    evidence of what caused them. What the hell is it? Then The Mars
    Orbiter circling the planet, captures some footage of the Rover and
    under extreme magnification something can be seen in the pixelated
    image, emerging from under the sand behind it. It looks human, infact
    it looks like an astronaut .
    Hacksaw reveals that this footage is only a week old and signs off.
    Episode 5
    Hacksaw reveals more classified footage from The STAC. Black and
    white
    documentary footage from the end of WWII of an underground v2 missile
    factory near the blockhouse in France, the contents of which would
    have
    changed the outcome of the war.
    Inside this factory, hidden in an anteroom, lays an Atlas
    intercontinental ballistic missile with the letters U.S.A clearly
    visible along itAEs length. One of the techs in the room is clearly
    overheard saying oThe plans say Vandenburg Air Force base and
    theyAEre
    dated 1967, thatAEs 20 years in the future!oe As this discovery is
    documented on film, the missile suddenly disappears into a frenetic
    lightning Time Storm.
    Hacksaw states that the true conspiracy of this film is that not only
    was a missile from the future was there in 1945 but that no one knows
    why and who brought it there and then made it disappear Somebody is
    toying with history.
    Episode 6
    City Streets night
    Hacksaw on the run describes that for the first time a mysterious
    someone from outside her controllable Network, is feeding her THEM
    intelligence transmissions.
    She patches through the hacked THEM intelligence footage so her
    audience can see.
    The broadcast starts with black-clad soldiers ransacking HacksawAEs
    hotel room, her clothes on the bed, dinner tray on the bedside table
    and scrawled on the mirror in lipstick, PWNED!
    The Soldiers who are watching the broadcast live realise itAEs their
    own
    footage being transmitted. Hacksaw taunts, oCome and get me.oe
    Hacksaw eludes her pursuers by exposing the fallable floors in their
    training.
    Episode 7
    Filming with a night vision camera whilst hiding at night in a forest
    Hacksaw reveals the existence of ghosts with this weeks captured
    footage from The STAC.
    A team of scientists investigating an abandoned asylum with infa red
    cameras interview a co-operative ghost who was once a patient.
    Suddenly
    the tables are turned and they are set upon by the insane spirits
    that
    inhabit the most haunted place on earth.
    Cut back to Hacksaw who this time whispers her sign off line.
    Episode 8
    Hacksaw filming herself using a handy cam inside an aeroplane
    bathroom.
    The plane is hit by extreme turbulence. The engines howl. Hacksaw
    introduces this weeks story hacked from The STAC, which illuminates
    the
    existence of aliens far more real than the American cold war paranoia
    from the 50AEs.
    An investigation into a downed Blackbird SR71 spy plane in North
    Korea
    will turn into a fierce battle as a troop of soldiers flee for their
    lives from dark alien creatures.
    Back to extreme turbulence in an airline toilet.
    Hacksaw states that what weAEve just witnessed is just the tip of a
    much
    darker iceberg.
    oThis is Hacksaw. Now weAEre watching THEM.oe
    Episode 9
    Hacksaw walks the City streets as she delivers this EpisodeAEs story.
    A Top Secret North Korean film. North Korean voiceover and text
    documenting the creation of an human/alien hybrid army. The aliens
    killed in the fight in the forest in the North Korean forest seen in
    an
    earlier transmission and their victims have been taken by North
    Korean
    secret police to a subterranean hospital on a military base where
    geneticists have successfully cloned up a controllable human hybrid.
    TheyAEre creating a super lethal army.
    Episode 10
    Hacksaw, hiding inside a nightclub, describes that her pursuers are
    tightening the net, but in the past few days she has been in direct
    communication with a shadowy informant.
    She verbally cuts to a package that includes conversations sheAEs had
    with this figure, and vision of what little she can see inside the
    camouflaged noise and electronic voice of this well-connected but
    untraceable informant.. How can they know so much about her and the
    STAC? Can Hacksaw trust him, her, whatever? Or is this an elaborate
    trap?
    With the noise inside and out flooding her mind Hacksaw sign-offs .
    Episode 11
    Hacksaw reveals the secret footage of Apollo 18 the only mission to
    never have been made public.
    As seen from inside the LEM we descend to the surface of the moon.
    Mission control, with a skeleton crew and the astronautAEs voices can
    be
    clearly heard. Everything is going to plan then a giant hanger door
    splits open on the moonAEs surface revealing a technological world
    beneath. Panic ensues and then Statica
    Hacksaw signs off.....nothing more to add to what we have seen.
    Episode 12
    Hacksaw has started direct communication with someone who says they
    are
    with THEM and that they no longer believe. Believe in what?
    They show her an internal security report to gain her trust that
    shows
    just how much intel they have amassed about her, from a surveillance
    folder located in The STAC. This is just one of billions of folders
    relating to every human on the planet. What they know about you all
    is
    frightening, your privacy is a thing of the past. The STAC is much
    bigger than Hacksaw ever imagined.
    The informant then shows her autopsy photos of her dead Hacker Clan
    and
    states that they personally were in charge of accessing and the
    elimination of this threat. Only now does this informant understand
    the
    importance of HacksawAEs message.
    But this language is abrupt and clouded in secrets. The mystery
    figure
    says there is a much greater conspiracy that Hacksaw needs to know.
    Episode 13
    Underground car park
    Hacksaw has received no new communication from her mystery informant
    in
    fact all activity at The STAC seems to have stopped.
    As Hacksaw is transmitting all power goes out and screeching tyres
    can
    be heard as a van pulls up and out rush a squad of THEM soldiers
    screaming oGet down on the ground NOW!oe They surround Hacksaw and
    have
    her pinned down there muzzle torches dance over her trapped body. One
    soldier lefts her head by her hair to say,
    oDo you know how much trouble youAEve caused LITTLE GIRLoe.
    Episode 14
    The transmission starts with static and the super HACKSAW SIGNAL
    OFFLINE replaced by SIGNAL CAPTURE. aSOURCE UNKNOWN. aSHUTDOWN YES /
    NO
    NO is mysteriously clicked and an image from security cameras reveal
    a
    clearly panicked HACKSAW inside a dark room strapped to a vertical
    surgical gurney. Multiple cameras, and a cacophony of voices surround
    her, she is covered in sensors and IV drips. Strangely they only ask
    her simple questions about herself oDid you have a happy upbringing,
    what is your favourite colour?oe etc.. The questions tumble over each
    other with no obvious point, or reason, slowly wearing her down.
    Hacksaw pleads for them to stop then in unison they ask, oWhy are you
    doing this?oe
    The medical gurney is then lowered to a horizontal position. From
    above
    we see her head thrashing back and forth wildly until a surgical
    gloved
    hand grabs her chin to restrain her, her eyes widen as a bite block
    is
    forced between her teeth. Stroboscopic lighting ignites.
    Episode 15
    Escape
    Action episode.
    Again,the transmission starts with static and the super HACKSAW
    SIGNAL
    OFFLINE replaced by SIGNAL CAPTURE. aSOURCE UNKNOWN. aSHUTDOWN YES /
    NO. NO is pressed.
    From inside the depravation cell a dazed Hacksaw can hear the echoes
    of
    shouting and gunfire. Security cameras record her cowering tightly on
    the floor in a foetal position then she slowly stands and takes up a
    defiant stance. The door is breached to her cell and a THEM soldier
    enters to drag her out. After a short struggle down corridor the
    soldier draws a gun and places it against her head to subdue her.
    They
    exit that security cameras field of vision.
    A blinding white light floods frame as an emergency siren wails. A
    voice shouts oRUNoe as, Hacksaw gets hurled through a security door
    and
    into the outside world. An external security camera picks her up
    running as fast as her dazed body can deep into the forest beyond.
    Episode16
    Static is broken by images from a flying surveillance drone. We see
    an
    unconscious Hacksaw lying in her underwear in a clearing by a forest.
    Medical information races past frame, heart rate, body temperature
    etc,
    something is monitoring her.
    The image degrades to a flashing super ACTIVATE CEREBAL IMPLANT REC
    1.
    This super is replaced by anotheraONLINE. In a series of image
    flashes
    and vignettes we see Hacksaws journey, including the various
    conspiracies revealed from The STAC, leading up to new subliminal
    images of an ethereal cell suspended in space inside a cavernous
    room.
    Then an unknown face appears under strobing text that reads HACK
    ANNEX
    ZERO.
    From the security drone we see Hacksaw physically affected by this
    invasion on her brain then in a start Hacksaw wakes up. Her first
    words
    are owhatAEs ANNEX ZEROoe.
    Episode 17
    In a dingy Truck stop bathroom dressed in a cheap summer dress,
    Hacksaw
    transmits via a mobile phone while recording herself looking into a
    mirror. She explains that it has taken two days just to find a road
    and
    still she canAEt comprehend the recent past. oWhy did they let me go?
    oe.
    The transmission is interrupted by images flashing in HacksawAEs
    brain.
    In the mirror we see this transference physically affect her. oWhat
    is
    happening to me?oe
    As she splashes water on her face and eyeballs the cameras she states
    oShow stored packetoe.
    A top-level internal CIA film showcasing the contents of a hidden
    hanger, containing captured U.F.Ooes, not just one but many.
    Narration
    explains the circumstances of capture and ends on revealing a tiny
    engine with the extraordinary statement u oIf connected, this
    infinite,
    inexhaustible engine could power the planet for ever.oe
    Finishes with Hacksaw leaning into the mirror to deliver her
    signature
    sign-off.
    Episode 18
    Inside static we see the image of aethe unknown manAE that has
    appeared
    in her mind previously. The static clears to reveal Hacksaw filming
    herself walking the streets in the rain. oIAEve discovered this man
    is
    called the Special liaison officer, liaison for and to what? IAEm
    sure
    heAEs one of THEM but I am still investigating now that some of The
    STAC
    is back on line. As soon as I know who he and why he is important so
    will youoe
    The next stored packet abruptly starts. Black & white film lit by
    torches from the 40AEs of a secret anteroom in the great pyramid of
    Cheops showing the original plans for the construction of the pyramid
    in hieroglyphics. These highly complex and detailed diagrams clearly
    reveal the original architects had help from the future
    Again this footage proves that history has been tampered with,,,but
    by
    who and why is the real conspiracy.
    Episode 19
    Hacksaw seen via web cams slides between terminals inside a vast
    server
    room as she multitasks across systems in an attempt to hack Annex
    Zero
    this hack is the hardest sheAEs ever attempted. She has discovered
    about
    the origins of THEM, the terrible emotional abuse of their sordid
    past,
    how much control they have amassed on the planet and the fact that
    anyone anywhere could be a sleeper agent just waiting to be activated
    into one of THEM.
    Then she discovers aeliveAE where Annex Zero is, and in a sequence of
    shots revealed by satellite imagery we see it is buried under the
    center of the most secure building on the planet the Pentagon. She
    sermises that while the STAC is the core that contains everything,
    this
    must be the Network hub through which all information passes. While
    this is an extraordinary discovery there must be a still a larger

    Annex
    Zero to broadcast everywhere on every system across the globe the
    secret of the Creation Cell, the fact that it is one half of the
    original cell that created the universe and that it was buried here16
    thousand years ago to protect it, (Protect it from what?) but now

    The security camera PULLS OUT to reveal an open caged elevator. The

    HACKSAW (VO)
    It holds answers to all the
    worlds secrets. Conspiracy's.
    Cover-up's. A machine of truth-
    The security camera continues to PULL OUT, further and further, to
    reveal a ginormous structure. A machine made of metal and glass,
    rotating, undulating, somewhat like a crank shaft of a car. Air-
    conditioning units spin, keeping it cool, while steam rises from its
    joints and gaps.
    It is an Orwellian nightmare.
    CUT TO:
    INT. STAIRWELL - NIGHT
    Hacksaw races down those stairs, two, three at a time...

    CUT TO:
    THEM SOLDIERS HELMET CAM
    They exit the elevator, looking around. This machine, it's like a
    skyscraper... only built underground.
    They approach an archway that opens out into a mirrored chamber,
    which
    extends into the distance. In the middle of the chamber, what looks
    something like a 600ft diamond geode. Lightning and static explodes
    within it. There is power here, unimaginable power -
    CUT TO:
    INT. STAIRWELL - NIGHT
    Hacksaw races down the last of the stairs.
    HACKSAW
    Whatever that is, it's the tip
    of the iceberg. What they've
    kept from us. Their well of
    secrets. But it's just the
    beginning.
    She burst out the exit door -

    the middle.
    CUT TO:
    HACKSAW.
    HACKSAW
    Broadcast the truth of all their
    lies. Watch for my signal. And
    listen. The more we know, the less
    power they have.
    CUT TO:
    MULTIPLE SECURITY CAMERA FOOTAGE.
    The soldiers reach the computer. They stop only feet away, guns
    poised at the screen.
    On the screen...
    HACKSAW
    Now I know how you move,
    how you attack. This is
    Hacksaw. Now we're watching
    THEM.
    The computer screen flicks from Hacksaw to the security footage of
    the
    soldiers on the rooftop. One of the soldiers breaks from formation,
    ferocious, kicking the screen. It flies across the floor.
    The others turn to the security cameras and let fire-

    burning in her eyes.
    HACKSAW
    They don't chase me anymore.

    HACKSAW (VO)
    It would have changed the course of
    the war.
    FROM BLACK the camera enters an enormous V2 ROCKET FACTORY.
    Rockets. Lined up one after another as far as the eye can see. The
    Cameraman describes the scene as he sees it through the lens -
    CAMERAMAN (VO)
    Chamber roughly 2000 feet long...
    Antechambers along both sides...
    Railway tracks transport rockets to
    launch pads... Scale of production...

    rockets here...
    CUT TO:
    HACKSAW.
    HACKSAW (VO)
    The Allies invaded before the

    this facility. And something else...
    CUT TO:
    MILITARY VIDEO CAMERA FOOTAGE.
    The camera pans down a huge V2 Rocket.
    MILITARY OFFICER (OS)
    You. With the camera. Over here.
    The camera pans to a line of high-ranking MILITARY OFFICIALS talking
    quietly amongst themselves outside an entrance to another room. The
    camera approaches, the officials turning away as it passes to obscure
    their faces.
    The camera enters a GIANT CHAMBER. A massive, polished, STEEL ROCKET
    lies on its side on a cradle. The rocket is different to the V2's,
    larger, modern. The letters 'U.S.A' are emblazoned along its side.
    The camera films the rocket. The Officials in the room studying it,
    photograph it, pour over blueprints.
    We hear off-screen-
    MILITARY OFFICIALS (OS)
    It's called an 'Atlas'...
    These plans say Vanderberg Air
    Force Base...
    It's dated 1967!
    Suddenly, commotion. Yelling, screams -
    The camera spins around to reveal a BLACK-CLAD SOLDIER sprinting into
    the chamber. He's unarmed, except for a device in his hand. Like a
    trigger to a bomb.
    The Military Officials stand, perplexed, staring at this black
    creature racing across the floor when -
    He reaches the rocket, hand touching. He presses the trigger device -
    And in a flash of electricity he disappears!
    Silence fills the room. The sound of static. Suddenly, arcing bolts
    of
    electricity fill the air, surround the rocket. A thunderous noise
    cracks and everyone turns on their heels, running for dear life from
    the chamber.
    The Cameraman remains, filming the electrical storm. It builds and
    flares and surges around the rocket, until finally a blinding flash
    of
    white...
    Vision returns. Papers float to the floor. Residual static activity
    outlines where the rocket used to be. Because now, it's gone.
    Silence,
    then -
    A sound, like turbines spinning, faster and faster, louder until-
    A sonic wave explodes, knocking the Cameraman over and shattering the
    camera lens!
    BLACK. A LOGO APPEARS.

    CUT TO:
    INT. TAXI - NIGHT
    Hacksaw.
    HACKSAW
    It's THEM. They're trying to toy with
    history. But they can't control it.
    Yet.
    Vertical lines scan across screen. The logo appears again.
    HACKSAW (VO)
    The logo. I've seen something
    like it before.
    A second image appears on screen, next to the first. It's Carter's
    image, half corrupted, but it looks remarkably similar to the logo.
    HACKSAW (VO)
    Carter's image. They're interconnected
    but I don't know how. I need somewhere
    safe... safer... to find out. I can't
    keep running, I need time to look.
    Hacksaw glances out the passenger window, checking her surroundings.
    HACKSAW
    Pull over.
    She throws the Driver some cash, exiting.
    EXT. BUSY STREET - NIGHT
    The door slams behind her, Hacksaw walks to the curbside talking into
    her mobile phone camera.
    HACKSAW
    The signal's dying, I'll be in
    touch. I'm skipping the country.
    Found a safer haven to hack deeper
    into the STAC. If these are
    interconnected, there's more....
    HACKSAW crosses the street.
    HACKSAW (CONT'D)
    Now you know what I'm up against.
    We're up against. I think we're
    at the brink of a war, one we
    have no choice but to fight.
    This is Hacksaw, now we're
    watching -
    Signal interference. The vision switches from Hacksaw to that of a
    sniper's scope at a distance. The rifle lens snap-changes from wide
    to
    an extreme close-up of Hacksaw's face.
    Hacksaw looks up. She's staring down the barrel of an unseen gun.
    Traffic races past her, flashing past frame.
    Gunshot.
