Cosmic Dawn (2022) Movie Script

Why can't we light a fire?
So we can see the sky better.
Come. Want to look?
But we came all this way.
Don't you want to see
the eclipse?
I'm cold. I want to go to bed.
Okay. Okay.
Let's go. Get in.
I will make a fire
in the morning.
Do you know how much I love you?
This much.
'Night, Ro.
'Night, bunny.
What's going on?
It's not snow!
Isn't it beautiful?
Don't be scared, honey.
Don't worry.
I'll hold on to you.
Do you know how much I love you?
This much.
Don't touch me!
Oh, Ro, shh, shh.
It's okay.
Hey, it's me. I'm here.
Uh, yeah.
Hey, it's okay, honey.
You're okay.
Is she okay?
Do you mind if I ask you
a question, Aurora?
How long have you been
using drugs?
Since I was a kid.
She was in some pretty intense
therapy when she was younger.
What were you in therapy for?
How much time do you have?
Her mother, my sister,
died when she was a little girl.
She didn't die. She disappeared.
She was just a little girl,
and she was very scared
and all alone,
and you know how it is
with kids.
They build up these things. Ro!
- Ro, Ro? Please don't.
- Get back!
- Excuse me.
Ro, please don't go.
Aurora! And I'm sorry.
Paging Dr. Trudeau.
Dr. Greg Trudeau,
please report to...
Aurora? Excuse me.
Don't go.
Ro. Ro!
Can I help you?
Um, did someone
just come in here?
Besides you?
Um, is there a bathroom
I could use?
Yeah. Over there.
Looking for something
in particular?
No. Just browsing.
Maybe I could recommend
I don't need help.
I'll leave you alone, then.
Uh, wait.
No, no. No, no. Don't cry.
We all have bad days.
I'm sorry.
This is so embarrassing.
I don't judge.
Unless you were actually
going to buy that.
Then, maybe I would've.
No. It's pretty stupid.
Well, especially that one.
It's just a bunch of
recycled conspiracy theories.
But I have something
that you might like.
Ah. This.
This is something else entirely.
No last name? Is she like Cher?
Well, Elyse isn't like anybody.
She's a visionary.
Is this a joke?
Not to me.
No. I saw her.
She came into the store.
Elyse has
a way of finding people.
Ooh. "Aurora." I love your name.
Yeah. My mom loved
the stars, so...
I'm Natalie, by the way.
All right.
Let me know what you think
about the book.
Yeah, I will.
I don't know what you're up to
this weekend,
but I'm getting together with
a bunch of friends
if you want to join.
Yeah. Maybe.
- Thanks.
- Mm-hmm.
- Bye.
- Bye.
This weekend in London
marks the final eclipse
of the lunar tetrad.
This event is quite rare,
having occurred a mere 62 times
since the first century.
Of course, this has created all
sorts of so-called prophecies
throughout history.
Even the name "blood moon"
evokes a sense of doom.
There will be wonders
in the heavens
and signs on the earth.
The sun will turn into darkness
and the moon to blood
before the great
and glorious day
when he returns.
Perhaps ,
although I don't think
the rapture
is scheduled for this weekend.
Aurora? Hey, Ro.
Blood moon?
In class?
What are the odds?
It must be a sign.
Stop following me, Dieter.
You've left me no choice.
You didn't return
my phone calls.
She came back.
Just like she said she would.
- Fuck off and...
- You belong with us.
You belong with us.
Next time I see you,
I'm calling the police.
We're sorry. You have reached
a number that is disconnected
or is no longer in service.
You made it.
I was beginning to think
I wouldn't hear from you.
Didn't you say that your friends
were going to be here?
They are.
My friends
are dying to meet you.
You tell them that I was coming?
I told them you might.
It turns out I was right.
I hope you like karaoke.
Elyse, this is Aurora.
She's the one
I was telling you about.
Yeah. Hello.
And this is Mizuki,
our resident bad-ass.
Natalie tells us
many great things.
Oh. Well, we just met, so...
Natalie says you read my book.
And? What did you think?
Uh, it was interesting.
That's a way of saying
you didn't like something.
No, I didn't mean it like that.
I've read so many books
about UFOs and stuff.
But your book was...
Your book was like reading about
my own experience.
Maybe you were.
Join us.
One, two, three.
One, two, three. Testing.
Before we get started,
I would love to thank Zee
for making tonight possible.
Thank you.
I'm really happy to be here
for this special occasion.
Thanks, you guys.
But the real reason
we're here tonight
is because of Aurora.
- Whoa!
tell us why you're here,
Uh, Natalie invited me.
Go inside.
Deep here.
I'm sure you know.
Know what?
That you were not invited,
You were chosen.
Your mother
is Iris DeLuce.
June 8, 1997.
It's okay.
You moved here
after the encounter
to live with your aunt Caroline.
You were just a girl.
How do you know that?
Tell her, birdies.
December 10, 2011. Japan.
February 21, 2008.
Kami, October 27, 2004.
Dinesh, April 14, 2014.
Winston, May 27, 2006.
Naveed, July 5, 1982.
August 22, 2007.
The blood moon
brought us here...
From all over the world,
like a magnetic force.
We're witnesses.
Just like you.
Who wants to share
their encounter with Aurora?
It's okay. Really.
- Is everything okay?
- Yeah. Sorry.
Oh, I just need a bit of air.
You know, the first time
is really intense.
I don't understand.
Who is she?
When I first met Elyse,
she knew everything about
my encounter, too.
It's a process of discovery
and acceptance,
but Elyse saved my life,
and I really...
You know what? Never mind.
- What?
- No. Nothing.
You know what? We're going to do
some karaoke.
So, come back inside.
Wait. No.
What were you going to tell me?
Elyse has a place up north,
and the rest of us
are going up this weekend.
She wants you to come.
I know. I get it.
Too much, too soon.
Next time.
Well, when are you leaving?
You're not going to regret it.
But first, karaoke.
Your phone was disconnected.
I was worried
something happened to you.
Can you just let me in, please?
So, what have you been up to?
Why are you here, Ro?
I thought that
we could have dinner together,
like we used to.
That was a long time ago.
I saw Dieter.
So, Dieter also said that
Elyse was back,
which is obviously insane.
No. So is Dieter.
I know that you probably
don't want to see me,
which I totally get, but...
No, it's okay.
I'm glad you came.
Thanks for saying that.
God. I just want it to stop.
It will.
Hello. I'm here to pick you up.
I'll be right down.
Aurora? Hi. I'm Dieter.
Where's Natalie?
Oh, she's going to
meet us there.
Do you have everything you need?
Okay. Well, we have
a long drive,
so come on. Hop in.
Okay. There you go.
Come. Sit up front.
I won't bite.
I'm just a pussycat.
Come on. It's okay.
A little.
Everyone is at first.
It's just that Natalie said she
was going to pick me up, so...
She's too important for pickups.
That's why Elyse sent me.
Why does everyone call her Zee?
Why is the sky blue?
You know,
a lot of phonies
try to slip by me,
but they always reveal
I'm not a phony.
That's what everyone says.
- Well, I'm not.
- Mm-hmm.
June 8, 1997.
May 4, 1985.
Wake up.
We have a long way to go.
Come on.
Don't forget your suitcase.
Let's go.
Very, very cold...
...this morning.
Where are we going?
Don't worry. It's very nice.
Come on.
Hey, you guys.
Ah. There you go.
Hi. Welcome.
You never said it was so remote.
I know. Amazing, right?
Wait till you see the place.
Hey, it's this way, huh?
Careful. Watch your step.
Watch for the bears.
It's a joke.
I wish you would've told me that
you weren't going to pick me up.
Oh. I thought I did.
Why? Did something happen
with Dieter?
No. It's just a bit intense.
Right. He's really
just a pussycat
once you get to know him.
He said the same thing.
No, it's true.
If he seems protective,
it's only because he's been
with Elyse the longest.
I'll take this to your room.
Let me show you around.
Where did these all come from?
It's a mystery. Elyse had
a vision that led her here.
She says these heads
were probably erected
by ancestral witnesses.
Wild, huh?
And you believe that?
Well, why wouldn't I?
They can't explain
Easter Island, either.
Look who's here.
Winston was an architect
in Kingston,
and Kami was in construction
when she wasn't kicking ass.
They're a crucial part of
what we've built out here.
Where's the house?
It's not a house.
We call it the mother ship.
Before Elyse remodelled
the place
it was an old tunnel system,
probably dug out
with primitive tools.
And the renovations
were all done
to plans she'd laid out
in the book.
- Hola, Sol.
- Hola.
Sol ran a flower shop
in Iquitos in her former life,
and we would be so lost
without her.
You'll see why. I mean, her
plants are out of this world.
And this is
where we usually meet.
Uh, goggles, Dinesh.
Dinesh rigged lights
on big Bollywood productions
in his former life.
Oh, wow.
And this is
where the lessons take place.
Full stomach, full mind
kind of deal.
Lots of protein.
Strictly poultry.
And that is Elyse's room.
The private tutorials happen
back there,
but only on special occasions.
And your room...
Is down here.
Elyse prepared it
especially for you,
to help you get used to life
out here.
I never said I was staying.
Oh. Neither did I, at first.
Thank you, Naveed.
What's with the bow?
Well, I'm Nazeena.
- Like the warrior princess?
- No.
With a "Z," not an "X."
It means "key."
Or "gate,"
depending on the context.
It's in the glossary,
which you should memorize.
Things will make
so much more sense.
But you can call me Natalie.
I kind of prefer it.
You must be dying to freshen up.
My first night here,
I had the best sleep of my life.
Something about this place
just clears your mind.
The cleanse helps, too.
Diet is a critical part
of the preparation.
For what?
They return
for those who bear witness...
And prepare for their return.
You know? Like us.
Elyse :
Good morning, birdies.
Breakfast will be served shortly
in the dining room.
Please be on time, okay?
And let's make our best effort
to make Aurora feel at home.
Aurora, this song goes out
for you.
I'm really glad you're here.
I'm leaving.
On a jet plane?
- Hey.
Ro, wait.
Hey! Looking good.
It's not really my style,
but it's sort of comfortable.
I know. They're better than
pyjamas, right?
Aurora, this is my husband, Tom.
Um, could you please make one of
your legendary smoothies?
She's beginning her cleanse.
Lucky you.
You know, today, I want to hear
a real loud one for Aurora...
...for finding her way.
Okay. Thank you.
You know,
we should all congratulate Zee,
whose astral exercises
are going very well.
- Woo-hoo!
- Okay.
Thank you. Thanks.
Well, to mark this special day,
I would love to start
with a reading
from the Book of Tetrad
in the original Reptine.
"To the witnesses,
it was said..."
Thank you, Tom.
Okay. Enough.
May we reach The Dawn.
Okay. Enough preaching.
Let's eat.
This is not Kool-Aid.
You look good, Aurora.
That colour is perfect on you.
Did you get it all out?
Yeah. Yeah, I think so.
Here. Let me help you.
All right. There we go.
Supposedly, it's supposed to
make you more receptive
to the signals.
But, uh, it's really just mostly
kale and cayenne pepper.
And hey, hey.
It happens to everybody.
Natalie never told me
she had a husband.
Yeah? Well, she does,
and it's me.
So, are you from the city?
No. Not originally.
I moved out here
to be with my aunt
after my mom disappeared.
What about you?
Uh, I'm not really from here.
I really just kind of
ended up here.
Like me.
Yeah, I guess.
So, what's your aunt's name?
She know you're here?
- No. God, no.
- Mm-hmm.
She already thinks I'm crazy.
Are you?
Do I seem like I am?
It's too early to tell.
- Were you followed?
- I don't know. Maybe.
Where's your laptop?
Over there.
Dieter was cruising
around the block earlier.
You know there's a blood moon
this weekend, right?
The ability of the human mind
to convince itself
of just about anything,
it never ceases to amaze me.
That was her.
She probably made that years
ago, just to fit her narrative.
Okay, honey. Here.
It's to protect you.
I would, but...
So, how do you like it?
It's not what I expected.
And all from a book.
Have you read it?
Ooh. Great stuff.
Especially the parts about, uh,
channelling the star source
and interstellar projection.
Have you had an encounter?
Yeah. Probed, twice.
Although the second time
was my choice.
No, no.
It was, uh, Natalie
who had the encounter,
or so she says.
You don't believe her?
I believe that she believes
she did.
Put it that way.
If you believe that, then
why are you doing here?
Well... because
I love her.
It's in the book.
I came by, and you
were not here.
Uh... Yeah.
I was outside.
It was so hard,
losing her.
Wasn't it?
Tell me,
what did you
see that night?
You know I was just
a kid when it happened.
Things get built up
in your mind.
I'm a good listener.
Unlike most
people you know,
I'm sure.
We were camping
in the woods
to see the eclipse.
And when I woke up,
there was all this light,
and my mom was gone.
So I followed the light.
I was so scared.
I just want to
see my mom again.
And you will.
That's why
you are here.
They talk to us
through living things, Aurora.
This is where they will
return for us.
The landing site.
Wanted to show
it to you personally.
How did you
know about my mother?
Your mother told me.
I was sent to
find you, Aurora.
Hmm. I see
you're skeptical.
It's not easy
to accept.
But it's true.
What did my mother say?
If I tell you, I want you to
do something for me first.
You're joking, right?
That's up to you.
Hmm. Your mother said
she loves you...
It's alright.
It's alright.
It's okay.
Hey. Race you back.
It's me. Hey.
You took it. Why?
Why didn't
you tell me?
I was protecting you!
Dieter was using me
to get to you.
He wanted me to
show you the video.
I said no.
You took the bait anyway.
She's supposed
to be dead!
Aurora, that's what they want.
It's mind games.
Then we need to
do something!
How are you?
Hey, good morning,
How'd you guys
sleep last night?
- Hey.
- Hey.
I had a dream about
you last night.
A good one, I hope.
We were planning to
kill somebody.
Really? Who?
You know, today,
I woke up,
and I felt that it would be
so beautiful to start the day
singing a song.
- Would you like?
- Singalong time.
- If you want to sing...
- Coffee?
Go ahead.
- Black, like your soul.
- If you want to dance,
- please let yourself go.
- You got it.
Go ahead. Cry.
- Okay?
In your mind
You have capacities
You know
To telepath messages
the vast unknown
Please close your
eyes and concentrate
With every
thought you think
Upon the recitation
We're about to sing
Calling occupants
Of interplanetary craft
Calling occupants
Of interplanetary
Most extraordinary craft
Calling occupants
Of interplanetary craft
Calling occupants
Of interplanetary craft
Calling occupants
Of interplanetary
Most extraordinary craft
You've been observing
Our Earth
And we'd like to make
A contact with you
You know why?
We are your friends
Calling occupants
Of interplanetary craft
Calling occupants
Of interplanetary
Ultra emissaries
We've been observing
Your Earth
And one night
we'll make
A contact with you
I hope I'm
not interrupting.
No. Come in.
I have something
for you.
Oh, Tom.
Thank you.
Yeah. Well, don't get
too excited.
It's gluten-free, so...
That's okay.
So, I was looking
for you yesterday.
I was with Elyse.
Oh. Where...
where'd you go?
We went to
this beautiful cliff.
Did she ask you to jump?
I mean, that's
the whole thing, right?
She asks you to jump, and
then you're supposed to have
some kind of
special insight?
But I didn't jump.
Nobody does.
It... it's a loyalty test.
It's about the fear and
the trembling, all that stuff.
No, but... she knew
things about my mother
that she couldn't
have possibly know.
Well, yeah. No. She
has that effect on people.
What effect?
She... gets them to believe
that she has special powers,
that kind of thing.
Maybe there's
a reason for that.
Because she tells people what
they want to hear.
Uh... I mean, how much do you
really know about her?
How much do I really
know about you?
- Well...
Okay. Shh. It's okay.
- It's okay. Okay.
- It's okay. It's okay.
Natalie! Natalie!
- It's okay. She's okay.
- What did you do?
- Somebody help her!
- Shh.
- Natalie!
- It's okay. It's okay.
Hey, what's going on?
Fuck off! Fuck off!
- Stop it! Stop it!
- She's fine! She's fine!
- She's fine.
- Calm down, please.
It's okay.
She's fine. She's fine.
Come here, my darling.
Come on. I'm
here. Talk to me.
- She's okay.
- They are speaking to her.
And they
are saying...
They are
watching us.
And they are
coming back.
Zena unlocks the door.
- That's okay, my darling)
- That's okay.
That's okay.
Calm down. Calm down.
- It's okay, my love.
It's okay, my love.
Come here. Come here.
I'm so proud of you.
I'm so proud of you.
You were perfect.
- Okay. Let's take her in.
Please help me.
Okay. Let's go.
It's perfect, my love.
Oh, my sweetheart,
it's okay.
It's okay. Come on.
Not everyone can
communicate with them.
She has a rare gift.
Tell that to Tom.
I don't have to.
He already knows.
Alright. When we
get inside,
just let me do
the talking.
Okay. Got it.
You ready?
Hey, Frank.
she doing here?
I don't want her
in my house.
on our side.
She wants to help.
So, you're
telling me you're okay
with whatever
happens out there.
No. I just don't
want to be involved.
I don't want that
part of my life. Okay?
What if Natalie were
stopped there?
She's not!
Go on out there.
I need your boat.
Natalie's 15
in that one.
She was such a good girl.
Independently minded.
But that was before all
the trouble started.
And then that witch
filled her head
with all these... ideas.
You want to help your
child, but at some point,
you got to accept that
maybe you're not able to.
It's not your fault.
I'm going to take a shower.
Are you alright?
Yeah. It's just...
You're wasting water.
- Hey.
- Did you talk to her?
Frank, I tried.
She won't...
What did she say?
I'm coming out.
No. Don't do that.
Stay there. It'll
only make it worse.
- I can handle it.
- You're making it worse.
- Would you just listen to me?
- What?
Okay. There's
this other woman here.
- Uh-huh.
- Her name is Aurora DeLuce.
- Okay.
- And she has an aunt
named Caroline
who lives in the city.
Now, I think that if
we just could reach out...
What are you doing?
Who was that?
My dad?
He's just
worried about you.
I'm a grown woman, Tom.
But you're still
his daughter.
He loves you.
Do you love me?
Of course.
Then quit living
in denial.
Nat. Hey, wait.
Hey, come on.
Hold up a second.
Listen to me for
a second.
Just don't tell anyone.
Come on. Please.
How are you?
Why is everyone so concerned
with how I'm doing?
Last night
was really intense.
They were speaking
through me.
Sorry if that
scared you.
Okay. Look.
Tom may seem
all cool and cynical.
It's all an act.
He was with me
that night,
when I was abducted.
You were abducted?
Yeah, of course.
That's how we met.
Tom came back with me.
At first,
it was exciting.
It was our
own little secret.
But I didn't want
to live that way, so...
I don't understand.
Yeah. My dad didn't, either.
He thought I was having some
kind of psychotic episode.
Everyone did.
Until I met Elyse.
There you are! I was
looking for you.
Soledad told me your
flower blossomed.
Aurora was just asking me
questions about my encounter.
And did you answer?
I'm pretty sure
I did. Right?
Tonight, eight o'clock.
Bring the flower.
I, uh, I saw you
talking to Natalie.
What did she say?
She's ready for you.
Hey, no. I need your help.
Thank you, Dieter.
Oh, it's beautiful.
You know, it does
not respond to everyone.
I wish everyone had
your faith.
Like Tom, for example.
Despite what he says,
Tom is here for
a reason, Ro.
And it's not because
he loves his wife
or whatever he told you.
It's because deep inside,
he knows the truth.
And one day, he
will reveal that to you.
This flower
has been used
by shamans in the Amazon basin
for a millennium.
They were the first
one to connect
the direct link
between the Pachamama,
Mother Earth,
and the cosmos
through their
experience with plants.
It's literally a step
of inner vision.
I won't lie
to you, my bird.
It tastes awful.
But it worth the effort.
Try another one.
You will start feeling the
vibration almost immediately.
Don't fight it.
It's nice.
Let it wash over you.
Whenever you're ready,
open your mind.
Let yourself go.
Now, come to me, Aurora.
Come to me! Aurora!
Don't worry!
It's okay!
Don't be afraid!
It's time for you
to face this night.
Don't be scared. Look.
Come on.
Ready to go.
I just want to say...
You sure you know what
you're doing?
Goodbye, Frank.
It's good to see you.
Everyone, look who's here.
- It was beautiful.
- Elyse! Elyse!
going on?
There's someone here.
There's someone here.
Everybody stay inside.
You know the protocols.
Go to your rooms.
Now. Now!
Natalie, what is
going on?
Is everything okay?
Oh, my God. Ro.
- Natalie.
Oh, Jesus.
I'm here to
take you home.
I am home.
what's going on?
Do you know anything
about this woman?
Did she tell you she was
in the same ward as Natalie?
I was sent
to find your daughter.
Delusions of grandeur.
That's what they call it.
Her real name is
Rose Alba Salazar.
She was a registered nurse
in goddamn Guadalajara
before she lost
her fucking mind.
Lies. All of it.
I can show you
the patients' list
from the hospital
if you want.
It's true, Ro.
I've seen it.
Come on. Enough
is enough.
- Come on, honey.
- Hey.
- Come on.
- Hey.
No. I'm not going anywhere.
Natalie, wait.
Natalie, please, honey!
- Natalie!
- Leave us alone.
Fucking crazy bitch.
Come on.
Natalie, are you okay?
Did you see that?
Yeah. I think
you should lie down.
It's happening, Ro.
It's really happening.
Oh, my God.
Oh, my God.
It is so beautiful.
- They're speaking.
- Help!
- What's going on?
- Help!
- Elyse.
- What's going on?
Elyse, there's
something wrong!
- Calm down.
Let me get her up.
Let's go inside.
Watch out, my birdy.
Take care. Okay.
She's arriving.
- Take her, please...
- Where's Tom?
- To my room.
Go. Go.
Lay her down, Dieter.
I really don't
This was not supposed to
happen like this.
coming back soon.
Hey, hey, hey. Yes.
Why did you turn her
father away like that?
He wants to put
her back in that cage,
and she belongs
here with me.
- She's sick! She needs help!
- She is not sick.
She's arriving. Hand
me the flower, please.
Elyse says no
one leaves!
Shh, shh, shh.
There's something
wrong with Natalie.
I know. Frank and
Caroline are waiting.
Come on.
Police are on their way.
We have to go now.
Left her
with that monster.
Someone's coming. Shh.
- Where's Tom?
- Shh, shh. Down.
Tonight at 6:43pm,
in a moment of
divine revelation,
Natalie arrived
at the hour of
her dawn.
Her father won't
but Tom does.
Despite his betrayal.
And his betrayal
will bring him
back to me,
and in doing so...
I will be killed.
But have faith,
because I
will return...
On the fourth moon of
our lunar ...
Our cosmic dawn.
So, now, I leave you
with a reading from
the book of Penumbra.
No, no, no, no.
- Aurora!
Mizuki! Mizuki!
- Stop!
On parting,
I say to you...
No! No!
May we reach
the dawn.
Be okay. Be okay.
- Be okay.
Somebody help!
You, you killed her.
I was wrong
about one thing, Tom.
Natalie was
never the Zena.
Put it down,
you slimy fuck.
it down, Dieter.
It's okay.
Natalie? Nat?
She's not gone.
She reached...
- Ah!
Where are they?
They are waiting
for you.
I knew
you would come.
No, no. This
can't be real.
It was always you.
I just didn't
realize it at first.
Sorry. It was the
only way.
No, no.
No. Th... this
is a dream.
The world is full of
illusions, Ro.
But the dawn
is real.
You are the one
they chose.
Honey? Honey? Ro, honey?
Ro, honey?
I see you.
Do you know
how much I love you?
