Guns of the Apocalypse (2018) Movie Script

It didnt have to happen.
But, it did.
It could have been avoided had we just...
...talked to each other.
But, we didnt.
And, then...
...the bombs fell.
I wasnt on Earth when it all went down.
Instead, I was hibernating
in an LD-sleep pod
on a resupply mission to the colony on
Alpha Centauri IV. Even with all the
advancements in propulsion technology,
the back and forth on that run is still
over ten years. So, by the time my ship
came home, the war was already over and
not much was left. We tried scanning for
survivors but, we didnt find very many... least not ones you could still
consider fully human.
To make matters worse,
immediately after we set down,
our little party of six was cut to two
by a pack of em. They were like animals,
scarred and deformed by
the residual radiation.
Wayne and I barely escaped with our lives,
but his injuries did
him in within 72 hours.
I guess I was the lucky one...
...that is,
if you consider being left alone
to die slowly in a nuclear
ravaged wasteland lucky.
For the record, I don't.
With the colony over four light years away,
meaningful communications
are impossible so,
to keep it flush with
provisions until it became
missions were launched every
five years to make sure there was always
a boat on its way,
and another on the way back.
My ship was the most
recent one to return...
...just two years after
the world fell apart.
Which means,
theres still one ship out there and,
since its been almost five
years since I got back,
its due any day.
Thats what this thing is for.
Before the mutants
completely destroyed my ship,
I was able to salvage a
decent number of useful
parts and I used some
to construct this crude
radio beacon.
I figure, with the dead transmission
tower acting like a giant
antenna, I could boost
the beacons signal enough to contact the
other ships crew once they enter orbit
and maybe...
...just maybe...
...hitch a ride off this rock.
That is...
...if I live that long.
Dang it.
This where I live now.
Most manmade structures were leveled
when the shockwaves hit, and the ones that
are still standing are unstable at best,
death-traps at worst.
I built this place out
of whatever I could find and added a scant
few modern conveniences using leftover
technology from my ship. It aint much, but
its got a certain charm and its solid.
Plus, its near an underground,
uncontaminated spring
so, at the very least,
I have fresh, clean water to sustain me.
Clean water source also
means something else:
access to plentiful small game,
which is basically all thats left.
Most of the bigger animalsyour deer,
your livestock, HORSESwere vaporized
alongside 99 percent of
the human population.
The ones that were spared quickly starved
to death or died of radiation sickness.
As a result, with the benefit of shorter
generations and a distinct lack of
predators beyond me, the little critters
continue to thrive.
So, I have shelter.
I have water.
I have food.
And, I have time. LOTS...
...and LOTS of time.
Which aint all bad.
At least, not compared to the solitude.
That aint nothing but bad.
At least...
...I thought it was.
Stay back!
Hope, come here.
We dont want any trouble, mister.
Looks like trouble already found you.
Well, we dont need anymore!
I dont plan on causing any.
You sure?
I promise.
Whatre you doing out here?
Where did you come from?
Were not telling you.
How do we know youre not one of them?
One of what? These things?
I can assure you, I am NOT.
For one, I can speak.
For two, do I look like them?
Im not talking about them.
We gotta go. Come with me.
How do we KNOW youre not one of them?
It aint safe out here.
You need to come with me.
HOW do we KNOW?
Young lady, I
KNOW WHAT? What are you talking about?!
One of WHAT?
Fine. Suit yourself.
But, from the sound of it, theres a pack
of em heading this way and I only have
so many bullets and
they need to last. So...
Good luck.
For what its worth...
...thank you for helping us.
Youre welcome.
My names Faith. This is Hope.
Im sorry to be so suspicious.
Its just...
...if youd seen half of what Ive seen...
No need to apologize. I get it.
All due respect, mister,
I dont think you do.
Now, what would make you say that?
Who the heck do you think you are
to presume to tell me
what I do and do not get?
Im sorry. I didnt mean any
Why are you two are out here
Thats a bit of a long story.
Were you not aware those things
come out IN FORCE at night?
And, if not, HOW is it possible youve
survived this long without knowing that?
Get behind me.
This aint good. Take this.
Wait! This way!
Come on.
Theyll figure it out soon enough.
Hope... are you alright?
She gonna be okay?
You alright?
Its water. Its safe.
Go ahead. Its safe.
This is safe, too.
Trapped and dried it myself.
Dont give me that.
We dont have any choice.
HOPE. Eat. Please.
Hope... Look, Ill show you!
Okay, Hope. Your turn.
HOPE. You can do it.
Stop being stubborn!
Oh, come on now, it aint THAT bad!
Alright, I take it back.
This is not good at all.
Mustve been a bad batch.
Dont eat that, darlin.
Sorry about that.
Try this one.
Hey. You alright?
Good... morning?
Is it? Morning, I mean?
I believe it is, yes.
Did you... sleep?
A little. Enough.
She yours? Daughter?
Why were you out in the wilderness
in the middle of the night?
We had to escape and I had to save her.
Shes... special.
Special... like... slow?
No. Not even close.
Then... special how?
Are you expecting someone?
No, I am not.
Stay there.
Dont move. Dont even breathe.
Who is it? Whos there?
Please! I mean you no harm!
Then tell me who you are!
I am a survivor, like you!
What do you want?
I only seek to trade!
What is it you have to trade?
Tools. Medicines. Wine and spirits!
Alright. Im coming out.
Whatre you doing? I told you to stay put!
They found us.
Him. THEM. We need to leave.
WE? Whats this we stuff?
Were not safe here. We need to go.
Look, sweetheart, Ive been perfectly
safe here for YEARS.
Im not going anywhere.
You two, on the other hand,
are free to go at any time.
But, if he could find us,
there are going to be others!
With as easy as it was to take him down,
Im not particularly worried
about any more of his kind showing up.
No! You dont understand
what these people are capable of!
I want you two out of here.
Whats she doing?
Hey! Ow!
What do you want?!
I think she wants you to take her hand.
Just, take it.
I dont want to.
Stop that!
Stop being a baby and take her hand.
I said no.
Whats it going to hurt?
I dont know! But, this is weird.
What was that?
Alright, you both warm enough?
Good, because I was not kidding when
I said this is going to be a very
long, very cold walk. Understood?
As long as we stick to the back trails,
we should be able to steer clear
of any mutants and, God willing,
make it impossible for anyone to track us.
What happened to the man from before?
Dont worry about it. I took care of him.
Whatd you do?
I promise you, there are some questions
you dont want answered.
Okay. Well need to keep
the pace brisk if we're
going to make it to the
Governors before dark.
The Governor? Governor of what?
Thats just what he calls himself.
I have no idea why. Hes a bit nuts,
but we can trust him.
He can help us get you two to safety.
Alright. Stay close.
Why are we here? What is that?
Dont you worry about it.
I am worrying.
You said we were going to see some crazy
person who could lead us to safety.
And we are.
What is that thing?
Its of no importance to you.
I think I should be the judge of that.
Look, do me a favor,
and stop asking questions,
because the sooner you do that, the sooner
well be back on our way. Alright?
Thank you.

Message received
Alright, now we can go.
What is it?
Footprint. And not the usual kind.
What do you mean by that?
Whats the usual kind?
Mutants dont generally
wear boots like this.
What kind do they wear?
The kind made of scavenged junk
and scraps of old cloth.
Mutants are essentially
high functioning wild
animals, more instinctual
than self-aware. Whoever was wearing these
has access to high quality provisions
and the brainpower to take advantage.
Most likely another survivor.
Not many in these parts but,
you come across them from time to time.
You think its the Death Dealers?
And who are the Death Dealers?
The men in black with the black
lips and eyes.
Its what they call themselves.
Take cover.
Hand over the abomination.
I have no idea what youre talking about.
The kid. Hand over the kid!
And why would I do that?
Either you turn her over willingly...
...or I kill you and take her.
No matter which you choose,
she WILL be leaving with me.
Is that a fact?
It is.
So, youre saying, If I
refuse, youll shoot me...
BUT, if I simply let you take them then...
...what? Im free to go?
No one is free in this world.
The only true freedom is death.
In that case...
...enjoy your freedom.
Hey! Whats this about?
Were just grateful.
Yeah, well, spare me your gratitude.
You have a lot of explaining to do.
This is the second of these things
weve run into and they are CLEARLY
looking for our little friend here, but...
...NOT you. Why is that?
Who are you?
Who is she?
Its complicated.
I can handle complicated. Try me.
Ill make you a deal.
Get us someplace safe and
Ill tell you everything I know.
I promise.
Fine. But, we need to change our route
to the Governors place.
If that one found us,
there exists the distinct
possibility others
might be close behind.
The sun is starting to get low.
If we dont hurry, these Death Dealers
wont be the worst things we run into.
You get me?
We get you.
You know how to use this?
I do, yes.
Then its yours.
Stay. Close.
Thats it? Thats the Governors house?
Thats it.
It looks like its made out of trash.
Building materials out here arent exactly
easy to come by. You take what you can get.
Which is a roundabout way of saying
its built out of trash.
Oh, how I love to eat my soup!
It's delicious and nutritious!
If you see a critter and
your belly's shouting dinner,
Just pop it in the pot and make some soup!
Its you!
Its me.
To what do I owe the pleasure?
How many seasons has it been, anyway?
Well, well, well... you brought a friend!
Hello, friend!
How do you do?
I do well. Most days, anyway.
Somedays, not so much.
And ANOTHER one!
Hello, little friend!
Oh, its okay!
I aint gonna hurt you! I promise!
Are you hungry, little friend?
Good! Because I just made me a big old
pot o soup and theres
plenty to go around.
Come on in!
You sure about this guy?
I said SOUP, friends!
SOUP. Was I not clear?
Im sure.
So? Soup? Yes? Delicious? Yes?
Very much so, yes.
Uh, yes. Quite good.
Little friend?
Excellent! Im happy to have been able
to share my not-quite-world-famous critter
stew with such a wonderful group of people!
Critter stew?
What kind of critters
do you think he means?
Probably better if we dont know.
Friends! Old friends!
New friends!
Little friends!
I humbly request your attention!
I assume you did not
brave the mutant-filled
wasteland to enjoy my
critter stewalthough, Im guessing
youre glad you did! That being said,
I very much appreciate your company.
As a token of said appreciation,
I come bearing gifts! Well... gift.
As in singular. A gift.
But... not for you two.
Of which, is it okay if I give the little
friend a present?
I promise shes gonna love it!
I... dont see why not.
EXCELLENT! Now, little friend,
this is something very, very special
I found many,
many years ago while out hunting
for scrap. Ive been holding on to it
for the most special-est of special people
and I think you might be the mostest
special person Ive ever met.
Are you ready?
Are you SURE?
Are you absolutely, positively prepared
to receive an amazing gift,
the likes of which you
have never seen before?
What do you think? Pretty nifty, right?
And, I promise you,
it has neither fleas nor mites!
...why are you here and how can I help?
Do you really think this hidden sanctuary
the Governor mentioned exists?
If Im being honest,
Ive never heard of it.
That doesnt exactly
fill me with confidence.
Now hold on a minute.
If the Governor says its there,
it most likely is. This man may be a kook,
but hes always been someone I felt
I could trust. Hes never given me any
reason to doubt him.
Okay, but you still
didnt answer my question.
Do YOU believe this sanctuary exists?
As far as my people were able to determine,
close to nothing survived the war.
I would think we would have been able
to detect such a large
enclave of survivors,
IF it is what he says it is.
Your people? Thats
an interesting phrase.
Did you ever hear of the Genesis Project?
Cant say that I have.
Im not surprised. It was a well-funded,
though well-hidden experiment started
over a hundred years ago by a brilliant
scientist named Michael Shelton.
Doesnt ring a bell.
The main idea of the experiment centered
around human evolution.
Basically, Dr. Shelton
surmised that since humanity had evolved
to the point where it could recognize
evolution for what it is and make conscious
decisions to determine the course of it,
it was only natural to
assume the next stage
WAS to purposely direct
it towards bettering
the species to ensure
its continued longevity.
Were all thats left of that experiment.
I was a scientist working
on the project and...
...HOPE is...
...the result.
She is LITERALLY the culmination of over
a centurys worth of cutting edge science.
Weve been living in an
underground facility,
safe from the war and radiation...
...until THEY found us.
They killed everyone and torched it all.
HOPE and I barely made it out alive.
They? As in... the Death Dealers?
Yes. Theyre a cult of fanatics.
Theyd been searching for
the project for years.
They believe the work we were doing
was pure blasphemy. Man trying to play God.
Werent you?
From a certain perspective. Admittedly.
But, why would God give us free will if not
to use it to unlock the
secrets of his creation?
I dont know.
I never went to Sunday school.
When she grabbed your hand,
you experienced something... unique, right?
Thats one way to put it.
Like the abstract concept of love suddenly
became TANGIBLE and your mind, body
and soul were flooded with it?
Yeah. That about sums it up.
Do you feel the same now than you did
BEFORE you experienced that?
No. Not by a long shot.
Think about that.
REALLY think about what that means.
Think about the current
state of this planet
and humanity in general
and then think about
what she could do!
What she could teach us!
Shes only a child and already,
this is what shes capable of!
Who knows what else she might be able
to do as she matures.
Imagine the possibilities!
Now, imagine all that
power in the wrong hands.
Right. We need to rest.
The Governor said this sanctuary place
is just under a days walk from here,
so well need to set out at first light.
Thats it? Thats all you have to say?
Wake up.
Wake up!
Hey, now! Youre awake!
And, just in time for breakfast!
Eat up! Theres more where that came from!
Thank you for visiting and introducing
me to my new friends! Safe travels and make
sure to stop on by on your way back.
I will.
And to you... was very nice to meet you.
Likewise. Thank you for your hospitality.
Anytime, young lady. Anytime!
And to you, little friend.
It was an honor to be in your presence.
Thank you.
Weve been walking for hours.
I think we need to take a short rest.
We dont have the luxury.
Theres still a long way to go
and I dont think its safe.
Hope is getting tired
and Im getting hungry.
We NEED to take a break.
We cant.
Shes only a child and Im going
to start getting very cranky.
I promise you, you WILL NOT like me
when Im cranky. Surely we can stop
for a couple minutes to have a snack.
Thank you.
What is it?
What is that?
I dont know... but, I dont trust it.
It sounds like someone in pain.
Exactly why I dont trust it.
It might be a trap.
Set by whom and for what purpose?
Mutants? Cannibals? Death Dealers?
Take your pick.
What if its not?
What if its another survivor
and were just leaving
them out there to die?
If they die, they die.
Its not our problem.
Thats horrible. Absolutely horrible.
Yes. It is. But, it is what it is!
If were going to make it
to this mythical sanctuary
You said you believed the Governor!
I do.
Then why would you use the word mythical?
You do know what it means, right?
Of course I do!
I dont usually go around using words
I dont know the definition of.
Then WHY would you say it?
Just forget it. I told you we need
to keep moving, so lets keep moving.
We have to help that person.
We REALLY do not.
We HAVE to. Its not right.
Look, woman, theres no such thing
as right or wrong anymore.
YES, there is!
No. There is NOT!
There is only life and living. Survival.
Where is she?
What do you mean, where is she?
Just that, WHERE IS SHE?
This way!
That was amazing!
We need to go. Where theres one mutant,
there are bound to be more.
You ready to go?
Soup! Soup!
Who goes there?
Is she alright?
I dont know.
What happened?
I dont know!
Is she alive?
Yes. I think she just... passed out.
Can you wake her up?
We are NOT safe out here.
I dont know! Hope?
Are you okay?
Can she walk?
Do you think you can walk?
What happened?
I dont think we can move her.
She needs to rest.
We CANT rest. Not here.
We HAVE to...
...unless you can carry her.
At this rate, I dont think we can make
it to the sanctuary before dark.
Carrying her is really slowing us down.
I can try to carry her for a while but,
I don't think I can move
any faster than you can.
Maybe we should try to find somewhere
safe to camp for the night.
No. We cant.
We have to.
We CANT. Look, Ive been carrying
her for over an hour.
Shes rested long enough.
I think she can walk.
Hope. You look pale. Are you feeling okay?
No, youre not. Youre burning up!
Its not that bad.
Yes, it is. We cant stay out here.
Thats what I just said.
We need to turn back.
What? No, we dont. Shes not that warm!
YES. She IS.
Shes sick and she needs shelter
and medicine. We need to return to the
Governors place.
Were MILES away by now.
Yes, but were closer to the Governors
than the sanctuary, right?
If its there, yes.
We NEED to turn back.
The Governor can help.
No. We need to keep moving forward.
Were running out of time.
Theres still PLENTY of daylight left.
Even if we have to take turns carrying her,
well make it back before dark.
NO. Thats not what Im talking about.
Youre not making sense right now.
If we turn back, we lose a day.
If we lose a DAY, theres no guarantee
I can get you to the sanctuary
and then make it back in time.
If I miss the window, I am STUCK here.
We keep moving forward.
Window? What window? Stuck WHERE?
What are you talking about?
Its not important.
Dont you DARE give me that!
We keep moving forward!
No, we don't! Not until you tell me what
in heavens name youre talking about!
Help me.
Whos there?
Help me, please?
Where... where are you?
I need your help.
Of course. Yes.
Where is Faith?
Dont worry. Shes here with me.
I dont see her.
Come back!
Wow. Thanks, kid.
Not good.
Not good at all.
Back off, man!
Yeah. Yeah, its me. Im still alive.
Those mask-wearin psychopaths thought
they could take out the Governor.
But, I tell you, its gonna take more
than a few bullets to put me down!
Alright, you crazy old
goat, take it easy now.
Crazy old goat, eh? Bah!
Governor... what happened?
Two of em... with the black clothes...
...they was lookin for my little friend.
I told em I didnt know where she was.
But... Im sorry.
Im so, so sorry!
Why? For what?
I wasnt strong enough.
They got it out of me.
I told em where you was goin.
Im sorry.
Im sorry...
Chips. Hey, now! Stay with me, old man!
Wake up!
What? Whats happening?
I need you to stay with me.
But... Im ready to go.
That hurt, dang it!
You cant leave me yet.
Not before you tell me where they went.
To look for you and my friends.
Did they get em? Did they get my friends?!
Yes. They did.
No... all is lost...
No! You know more about what goes
on around here better than anyone.
Do you have ANY idea
where they mightve taken them?
How about the direction they came from?
Which way?
The east?
Oh, Hope. Im so sorry about all of this.
Please be okay!
Good morning, sister.
I said, good morning.
I must say, despite the world being
in such a state of disrepair,
I find your refusal
to acknowledge my pleasantries...
...quite rude!
What is your name, sister?
Where are we?
Youre safe in one of my
underground compounds.
Let us go.
No. Now, I asked you a question.
What is your name?
I said, let us GO.
Ill try one more time.
WHAT... is your name?
Go to hell.
You have one last chance
to answer my question.
WHAT is your NAME?
Well, well, well!
That is a very pretty name.
And, quite apropos, if I do say so myself.
Do you know who I am?
Why have you brought us here?
Ill be asking the questions
around here, sister.
And I wont be answering any more
until you've answered mine.
Must we play this game?
What game?
The one where you act
like youre in control
of this situation. Because the truth is,
no matter what happens...
...the only way THAT game ends... with my friend
here putting a bullet... your forehead.
Do you understand, sister?
The only true freedom is death...
...and I am honored to bring about yours.
I am going to ask you again.
Do you know who I am?
Youre the leader of this cult.
Indeed, I am.
Youre the reason this planet burned.
Yes. Yes, I am.
And, dont think for a moment
that I am not proud of my achievement.
Achievement!? Youre responsible
for the deaths of BILLIONS of people!
Now, wait one second there, sister.
I was not the one who dropped the bombs.
I simply...
...facilitated the events which led
to the eventual destruction
of the human race!
There is a difference!
Either way, ultimately,
it was all YOUR fault.
MY fault?! Im just a scientist!
Just a scientist? Do you not realize
I know who you are?
Who SHE is? WHAT she is?
I know ALL ABOUT the Genesis Project!
Just a scientist!
Just following orders,
were you? No! You are not allowed
to use that excuse. You knew exactly what
you were doing when you decided to play God
and create this...
...blasphemous monstrosity!
Shes just a KID!
NO! She is EVERYTHING that was WRONG
with the modern world!
Shes the very personification
of the degradation of mankind!
The ARROGANCE of mans belief in his own
corrupt infallibility! To create HUMAN LIFE
Can you seriously not
see the perversity of it?
For any man to create a living,
breathing person in the image of HIMSELF
and ONLY himself denies God entirely.
For we were created in HIS image.
This... child, is but a crude facsimile,
and, therefore, is without a soul.
Do you now see why humanity
had to be destroyed?
And God looked upon the
earth, and, behold,
it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted
his way upon the earth.
And, behold, I, even I,
do bring a flood of waters upon the earth,
to destroy all flesh, wherein is the breath
of life, from under
heaven; and everything that
is in the earth shall die.
Do you know what that is from?
The story of Noah and the flood.
Yes. From the book of Genesis.
So, what? YOU looked upon the Earth,
determined it was too corrupt
and decided it was time to start over?
Exactly! We are the flood and we shall
bring death to the entirety of the human
race so that the Lord may begin again!
Whos playing God now?
Untie me, you coward!
Whered your people take the girl?
I dont know what youre talking about.
Try again. Wheres the girl?
I dont know anything about any girl.
She was carrying this.
Seems a little too convenient a coincidence
that I found it RIGHT OVER THERE...
...exactly where I was when YOU
decided to shoot at me!
She was obviously brought
through this area.
And yet, you want me to
believe that you NEVER
saw ANYTHING which might have resembled
a young girl carrying THIS UGLY THING?
Threaten me all you want.
I will never tell you
what you want to know.
I do not fear death.
I have sworn allegiance to The Flood.
I have willingly received the holy poison
which runs black through my veins and,
just like my brothers,
I will one day ascend
into heaven as a celebrated martyr!
Good for you.
Now, say youre sorry.
For what?
For disrespecting me.
I will never apologize.
What is it?
We may have a problem.
What kind of problem?
Someone is coming.
The man... I...
If you killed him,
how is he on his way here?
I dont know!
Then I suggest you stop standing around
and flapping your gums at me and GO.
The job!
Yes, your holiness.
Give me your gun.
Go with him.
And, once this problem is dead,
punish your brother for
failing the first time.
...go stand in the corner.
Because I told you to.
Do it, or I will end
you right here and now.
Youre just going to kill us both anyway!
Wheres the kid!?
Doesnt matter!
TELL ME where she IS!
You know, I may as well just tell you...
...since youll be dead shortly.
The child you seek is in a small,
underground compound about a mile
further down this path.
Shes safe. For now.
And the woman?
Shes there as well and will be for as long
as the Reverend finds her...
Thanks for the information.
That being said, youre an idiot.
Now, why would you say
something so hurtful?
Believe me, in a few seconds,
my words will be the least hurtful thing
youre going to experience.
Whatre you laughing at!?
Im simply excited!
By what!?
Its not every day you
get to kill a man twice!
I fail to see whats so funny.
Because... you missed one.
Well done!
He never saw it coming!
Now, help me up.
Come on, now! Help me up! Ive been shot!
Wait! Whatre you doing? HEY!
Thank you for that.
Fine. I was going to
spare your life and offer
you the opportunity to become one of my...
...special lady friends.
However, youre far too spirited and,
honestly, no man wants that.
As such, I have changed my mind.
You dont have to kill us!
Young lady, YES, I do.
You said it yourself,
I am indirectly responsible
for the destruction of
the entire human race.
Not completely, no, but, its only a matter
of time until I finish the job.
Even the soldiers in my
holy army wont survive.
Every one of them has
ingested a slow-acting
poison with no known antidote to make sure,
once theyve carried out humanitys end,
they, too, will fall.
Have you seen one of their faces uncovered?
The eyes.
Their mouths.
Proof the poison is working.
And yet, clearly, you havent taken it.
Thats true. And, I never will.
Youre a coward.
Since youre not going to last much longer,
I want to let you in on a little secret.
After all is said and
done, and the last of my
soldiers succumbs to the
poison, all that will
be left in this world
besides a bunch of sterile,
soon-to-be-dead mutants...
...will my special lady friends...
...and ME.
So, in your version of this story,
youre not the flood. Youre Noah.
Yes. Yes, I am.
You know... Ive changed my mind.
I DO like your spirit.
Might be useful after
the purge is complete.
I think Ill let you live.
This one?
She has to die.
...Ive already made up my
mind to spare your life.
But, you try anything like that again,
and I swear to you, the next bullet hole
wont be in the wall.
Do you understand what Im saying?
Im sorry, I couldnt hear that.
I STILL couldnt hear you.
Good! There it is! Theres that spirit!
Now. I have a little
business to take care of.
Why, hello there, little sister.
Id apologize for whats about to happen
to you but, you being what you are and all
Hope... stop...
Youre... youre okay?
But... you were sick.
No? I dont understand.
You were holding on to the pain
and suffering of the others.
You took it away and
healed them in the process.
Until you gave it... him.
Im sorry.
No. You hear me? No.
You did the right thing.
He was a very, very, VERY bad man.
You saved us. You saved us all.
Oh, my word!
Hes still alive!
Its okay! Its okay! Its just us!
But, how? I was... I was coming to get you
and then... I got shot in the back!
How are you here? Howd you escape?
Its a long story.
Okay... okay.
How long as it been
since you were captured?
I... uh... less than 36 hours... I think?
That means...
...I think...
...I think theres still time!
Time for what?
...three days hence.
Rendezvous point: transmission source.
We made it.
Repeat. Message received.
How long will we have to wait?
Based on their transmission
and the reading on this chronometer,
it should only be a matter of hours.
In fact, they should already be in orbit
and preparing to land.
What do we do until then?
Stay warm.
WAIT. Where are you going?
What do you mean?
Theres no room on their
rocket for all three of us.
Yes, there is! Those rockets are designed
to haul thousands of tons of supplies!
True. BUT,
theres no way for them to refuel,
so theyre going to have to get back
to the Alpha Centauri system with ONLY
their emergency reserves, most of which
theyre going to have to burn through
to escape Earths gravity.
That means theyll have
to take as little weight as possible.
Ive spent most of my adult life working
on these ships. I know how the math works.
Theres only enough wiggle room
in the calculations to allow for me...
...or the two of you.
But, nothing. This world is dying
and itll soon be gone.
It had its chance and it failed.
Miserably. That colony is the best...
...HOPE humanity has for a future.
It needs her.
And, it needs you.
Take care of her.
