Open Borders (2019) Movie Script

- Wow.
Every day there's more bodies.
- They're trying to send us a message.
- What's the message?
Pales don't survive?
- Give up or die.
- Think we'll survive?
- Oh, we'll survive.
It just might not be here.
- Don't move, Pale.
- Looks like they got someone.
- Scrag Rebel Enforcement.
- Don't resist.
- Looks like
some of Malik's men.
- Hold her, let's go.
- Come on.
- General Malik.
- Yes Madame President.
- I heard you had some trouble
today with some rebels in Quadrant 57.
- Yes, Madame President.
- We can't allow these rebels
to continue to thwart our efforts.
Our anti-Pale programs
are working with great
effectiveness but this
resistance must be stopped.
- It will be, Madame President.
- I'm counting on you to crush
this resistance, General.
You are paid to destroy rebels.
Total elimination must be achieved.
- I assure you Madame President,
we will take care of this.
- Good, that's what I want to here.
- I can't
wait to kill the Pales.
- Yeah man.
- We can't be outdone by a
couple Pale rebels like this.
The President has upped the bounty to
100,000 Scrag coins for
each Pale rebel killed
and 250,000 for each rebel female Pale
submitted to the breeding program.
So we're gonna produce, do you understand?
I said do you understand?
- Sir, yes sir.
- So go out there and do it.
- Sounds like somebody's waking up.
- Yeah?
- Oh my god, who are you guys?
- My names Jam, this is Bronson.
What's your name?
- Missle.
for saving me, I thought
they were gonna kill me.
- Pales can't go out in
the daytime like that.
- But I needed some food.
- They only want you for one reason.
- They want us for one reason
too and it's not very happy.
At least they want you alive.
The President has passed a new Harmony Law
stating that any Scrag that marries
a Pale gets 100,000 Scrag coins.
- It's an anti-Pale program
designed to wipe us all out.
- God.
Is this really happening?
- Yeah it is.
They've been brainwashing people for
years with this Scrag-Pale
coupling propaganda.
We got a lot of miles to travel so
you two should probably go get some rest.
Oh hey dad.
- Bronson.
Can you sit down for a minute?
I need to speak with you.
- What do you need?
- Well right now I need you to sit.
- Son, with the formation of Scragland
and the purging of the Pales
that they think are a threat,
we're not gonna be able
to stay here much longer.
- What do you mean?
- Massive persecution is next.
- Really?
I don't think so, dad.
- Trust me, we need to move somewhere.
Somewhere away from the Scrags.
- And where would that be?
- Well, I think it could
be in the Hinterlands.
- The Hinterlands?
- Yeah, the Hinterlands.
So I need you to go out
there and check it out.
That way I won't raise any
red flags by missing any work.
- I don't think so, dad.
Do you know how crazy that sounds?
We don't need to go out there.
We can work within the system.
What are they gonna
do, kill all the Pales?
- Maybe, yeah.
- Come on, dad.
- Look, we need to go out there
and check it out, explore
all our possibilities.
If it's safe, then we
can set up a new society.
If it's not, then...
- I don't think it's necessary.
I think we'll be fine right here.
- Son, I need you to go okay?
For us.
- No, you know what?
Look dad, if you want to go,
then go yourself, I'm not going.
- Don't move,
hands in the air, let's go.
Let's go.
Down on the ground.
Hands behind your back, cuff him.
- Bronson, are you all right?
- Yeah.
Thanks for asking.
Looks like we need some gas.
We're gonna have to go to Micah's.
Angel, hey Micah, how's a going?
- Crazy as usual.
I can't get away from them Scrags.
I moved out here just to get
away from them all and now,
we're surrounded by 'em.
They are everywhere, I just hate 'em.
- I hear you, brother.
- You boys on your way back home?
- Yeah.
- You guys still living in
that old abandoned house?
- Yeah, it's peaceful out there.
Unfortunately we had a run-in with Rebel
Enforcement and ended
up saving a female Pale.
- That's what I call true citizenry.
You know I've saved a few
myself, ain't that right Evette?
- You betcha, Micah.
- We gotta save and protect our women.
- Yeah, how you been Angel?
- Good, good, you know,
just trying to stay one
step ahead of these Scrags.
- I hear you, Rebel Enforcement's
getting tougher and tougher every day.
- There you go, Angel.
- Thanks for the gas, Micah.
Enjoy the fresh meat, brother.
Try to stay out of trouble, all right?
- I'm trying, brother.
Glad he's on our side.
- Yeah.
Me too.
Pull your car up here.
Gas is getting pretty
scarce in these parts.
- Can we get out of the
car for a couple minutes?
- Sure.
- Well hi there Jam.
- What's up, Micah?
- Who's your new friend?
- She's...
- My name is Missle.
- Well that's a powerful
name for a pretty girl.
- Thank you.
- Hey Jam.
- Hey.
This is Missle.
- Hey.
- Nice to meet you.
- So what do I owe you, old wise one?
- Ah, this one's on me.
- Thanks Micah, appreciate it.
You're a godsend.
- No, no, no.
I'm just an old friend of your father's.
- That you are.
- Bronson, your dad was a great man.
You can't keep blaming
yourself for what happened.
- Then who am I gonna blame?
He wanted me to go and I didn't go.
His death was my fault.
- He believed in you
and you may not believe
in yourself but one day,
one day you will.
- I don't know, Micah.
I'm starting to think that we can
live safely among the Scrags.
- Can we?
I'm not so sure.
- Yeah.
- Y'all be safe.
- Yeah.
- How did all this start?
- It was pretty innocent at first.
People elected socialists
to the government.
They enacted Hate Speech
Laws condemning any speech
that went against anything
that they had to say.
People went to jail and that
was the end of free speech.
- That's crazy.
- That was just the beginning.
Then they started tearing
down the monuments
and saying that we needed
a new Constitution.
- Why?
- Because they were
written by slave owners.
Thomas Jefferson, George Washington.
So, they got rid of it
and wrote a new one.
- Then
they got rid of the flag
and the National Anthem too.
- As soon as Americans
lost all their rights,
they went door to door
and physically confiscated
all the weapons, saying they
would be safer without 'em.
- Yeah, right.
- I can't believe all this,
I've never heard any of these things.
- Just a setup for what
they really wanted to do.
Get rid of all of our
borders and when they did,
millions of people flooded
in from all around the world.
- Here comes Scragland.
- What's wrong with that?
I thought that was a good thing.
- No, not really because
that many millions
of people at one time,
they come in and they
have no understanding of
America or her principles.
Basically turning America
into a Third World country overnight.
- Well, that's crazy.
- We need to find these rebels.
Check all the highway video surveillances.
Rebel Enforcement,
Special Forces Division.
Yes, one moment.
Line one for you, General Malik.
- Yes?
Thank you.
Let's go.
- That's when things
really got worse for the Pales.
- What do you mean?
- Well with that many
Scrags in the country,
they finally took over the banking system
and seized all the money, all
the land that the Pales had.
A Pale couldn't even get a job
unless it was working for a Scrag.
Most Pales didn't even resist,
they just joined the Scrag system.
- How do you know all this?
This isn't what I learned in school.
- Because you were taught
revisionist history
where they rewrite history
to fit their own worldviews.
I lived through most
of it and my dad, well,
he told me about everything
that happened before that.
- What happened to your dad?
- He was the one that said that we needed
to leave the Scrag system
and go out and start
our own new free society
in the Hinterlands
and he wanted me to go and check it out.
But I was too scared and I didn't go.
So he went.
They killed him
and the dream of a new free
society died that day with him.
- I'm so sorry.
- I miss him dearly.
What about your family, where are they?
- All my family was killed
in the initial purge.
Now I'm all by myself.
Why can't they just leave us alone?
- They
don't want us here.
- That's for sure.
So where are you guys staying?
- We're staying in an abandoned house.
- There's more of you?
- Yeah.
I have a wife and a son.
- What's your son's name?
- Minor.
- Do you guys mind if I
stay with you tonight?
- Sounds good to me.
- I don't think you have
any other choices right now.
Something doesn't feel right.
- What do you mean?
- Come on.
Somebody's been here.
I'm going in here, you guys go that way.
June, where are you, Jam?
Minor, Minor.
Yeah, all right ready, here it comes.
All right, nice catch.
Remember plant that foot back,
bring that ball to your
ear and then release.
- Good job, come on, it's time for dinner.
- Thank you.
- You're welcome.
Here you go, dear.
- Thank you.
It looks good.
- Did you like playing catch today?
- Yep, it was great.
- He's gonna be better than you soon.
- Oh, you just wait and
see, you just wait and see.
- I love you, daddy.
- I love you too, son.
I will never forget you, my son.
- Sorry Bronson.
What can we do now?
- I don't know but if we stay
here and do nothing, they win.
But if we go after them,
we could all be killed.
- I'll do whatever you want me to.
- The two of you need to
stay here, you'll be safe.
- What are you doing?
- I'm gonna go hunt down some
Scrags and get June back.
- But what if they killed her?
- They didn't kill her,
she's too valuable.
They probably kidnapped her to
sell her to the government breeders.
- What's this breeding about?
- The Scrags like to breed with
the Pales so that they
can lighten their skin.
They associate Pale skin with
power, status and beauty.
- That's crazy.
- Yeah it is but that's what they believe.
The Scrag government wants to absorb all
the female Pales into their society system
so they can make everybody light-skinned.
That's why they kidnapped
you at an early age
to put you into their
system, get you re-educated,
use you up and eventually get rid of you.
- What about the Pale males?
- That's a whole other story.
- It sure is.
- Most men didn't go along
with the absorption plan.
So the Scrags had to
come up with a different
way to deal with it and
that was to either A,
re-education them and put them to work
in the Scrag system or
totally eradicate 'em.
- That's where we come in.
- For those of us who remain,
we're basically just rebels to the state.
We must be hunted down and killed.
- It's not a pretty picture.
- No, it's not.
That's why the two of
you need to stay here.
You'll be safer because they're not
coming back here because it's safe here.
- Bronson, I'm not gonna
let you go by yourself.
June was like a mother to me.
I can help you find her.
- No way I'm staying here by myself.
- Okay.
Okay, if we're gonna do this,
then we're gonna do this together.
All right, let's go.
- Hey
honey, you want some of this?
- It's my hometown, I can't
believe how rundown it is.
- It looks like crap.
- You see that store?
My dad used to take my sister and I into
that store to get us
candy when we were little.
Missle, get down and stay down.
We don't need any Scrags seeing you.
Jam, put a blanket over her.
- There you go, can you breathe okay?
- Barely.
- Jam,
I'm gonna go over to that store
and I'm gonna talk to Baheeb
because if anybody knows
anything around here, it's him.
If I'm not back in 15 minutes,
you guys get outta here.
- Sure thing.
You'll be back.
He'll be back.
- Sure hope so.
- What are you doing around here, man?
- I just want to get some water.
- What's the matter, you thirsty Pale?
There ain't no water in there
for you man but you know what?
I got something for you, I got
something for you right here.
Come on Pale, you ain't
got nothing to say?
Get his stuff.
Thanks for the tip.
- Oh my, look
what the cat dragged in.
- Hey Baheeb.
- What are you doing here?
New government regulations,
I told you I can't help your type anymore.
- Can't or won't?
- Both.
- Have you seen some Scrags come in here
with a woman with brown hair?
- No.
I have no recollections
of that, I'm sorry.
- Would 10,000 Scrag
coins help your memory?
- Perhaps but you never know.
At my age, they say the mind
is the first thing to go.
Where are the coins?
I think I saw a captive brunette
with some Scrags last night in a pickup.
- What direction were they headed?
- Towards Planned-Opolis.
- Wait, you need to pay for that candy!
You crazy Pale.
- I'll be out back.
- Hey boys, what can I do for ya?
- Hey Micah, we need some gas
and a place to camp tonight.
- Sure thing Bronson,
my place is your place.
Where you boys headed?
- Planned-Opolis in the morning.
- What's the occasion?
- The other night they
ransacked our house,
they killed Minor and they kidnapped June.
- What?
I'm so sorry, Bronson.
If there's anything I can
do, you just let me know.
- You're doing it.
- Well if there's anybody that
can find her, it'd be you.
- Wow, what a ride.
Where are we?
- About halfway to Planned-Opolis.
- This place is so pretty.
- That's because the Scrags
haven't been here yet.
- Jam, take Missle and see if
you can find some firewood.
I'm gonna go see if I can
find us a good place to camp.
- Sure thing.
- All right.
- So,
how'd you meet him?
- When I was 10 years old,
the Scrags came to my
house and burned it down.
My whole family burned alive.
Before my mother died,
she was able to throw me
out of one of the windows.
Bronson was a first
responder, him and his wife
nursed me back to life and I've
lived with them ever since.
They're my family.
- Wow.
That's an incredible story.
I wish we could find a place
to live away from all this.
- That would be great, wouldn't it?
- You think we'll find a place like that?
- Yeah,
we will.
- So, what's your dream?
- I don't know.
I just want to find someplace
we can all live in peace.
Maybe raise my own family.
- Oh, your own family?
Who's the lucky girl?
- I don't have a girlfriend.
It's not very easy finding someone
when you're always on the run.
- I'm sure that's challenging
and it's forbidden for
Pales to mate together.
- Yeah.
But I am a renegade.
Maybe I could break one of the laws.
- I just want to live in
peace with the people I love.
- Me too, my lady.
- Do you think it's possible?
- Anything's possible.
- But where?
- Hey guys come on.
Grab some wood, I found
a place to camp, come on.
- Man,
it's so good eating real food
rather than that crap from
the Global Food Council.
- Yeah it is, buddy.
But not as good as June's,
nothing's that good.
- Do you think we'll find your wife?
- We have to find her.
- Do you think all Scrags are bad?
- No.
I don't think all Scrags are bad.
Most maybe but just like I don't think
all Pales are good but most
are, it's a numbers game.
- What do you mean it's a numbers game?
- Numbers, statistics, I
learned it playing sports.
Statistics don't lie.
All you gotta do is look at
the true numbers and don't
listen to what the people
or the government tell you.
- So how did they get that name,
- When the millions of people came in,
they all wanted one common name
that represented what they believed in.
So they came up with the Single Community
Representing All Globalists,
SCRAGS for short.
- Where did they all come from?
- Oh.
Millions poured in through
South America, through Mexico.
Muslims came in from the Middle East.
Millions came in from Africa.
Right then is when the United
States of America collapsed into chaos.
- So why do they call us Pales?
- You sure are full of a
lot of questions tonight.
- This is all new to me.
It's fascinating.
I thought it was always like this,
I didn't realize what had happened.
- It's okay.
You don't know 'cause it's
not what you were taught.
They didn't want you to know the truth.
- What was that?
- Bronson, it's Micah.
- Micah, over here.
- We just thought we'd come
out and join our friends
and brought a couple stragglers
that were passing through.
- Hey Angel, Evette, Johnny.
Yeah, we were just
finishing up dinner here
and we'd love to have
a drink with you guys.
I was just telling Missle
why it is they call us Pales.
- Great story.
Oh no no no, I brought here
some of the good stuff.
- Come on in.
It's good to see you, Johnny.
- Good to see you.
- Lookin' forward to
you playing us a long a little later.
- I'll play ya a beauty.
- So back to what I was saying,
they call us Pales because
of the cowboys and Indians.
- They don't call me Pale.
- The what?
- We're called Pales because
of the cowboys and Indians.
When the European settlers
came over to this country,
they were called pale faces by the Indians
and the pale faces later
displaced the Indians,
killed them, took their natural resources,
stole their land and created
the United States of America.
- That really happened?
- Yeah.
The thing that we did to the Indians
is now being done to us by the Scrags.
We're the ones being destroyed,
we're the ones being displaced.
Our natural resources are being used
and our land is being
taken to create Scragland.
- That's really scary.
I wish we could find a
home away from all this,
a peaceful place like this.
- Yeah.
That'd be great.
- John, go ahead and play
us one of your songs.
The water is wide and
I can't cross over
I neither have
My wings to fly
Give me a boat that can carry two
That boat shall row my love and I
For love is gentle and love is kind
And love is sweet
When first it's new
But love grows old
And waxes cold
And fades away
Like morning June
There is a ship that's loaded deep
She's loaded deep as deep can be
But not as deep
As the love I'm in
I know not how I'll sink or swim
The water is wide and
I can't cross over
I neither have
My wings to fly
Give me a boat that can carry two
That boat shall row my love and I
That boat shall row
My love and I
- That was so beautiful.
- Thank you, ma'am.
It's a song about heartbreak and love.
- When we find June,
then I think it's about time
we head out to the Hinterland
and make a new home for ourselves.
- The Hinterland?
We can't go out there.
The government says there's radiation.
- They're just saying that.
The government is just saying
that, I don't believe 'em.
They're trying to build up their forces
so they can occupy it and control it.
So that they can expand
it for the Scrags later.
But for right now, they're
just saying it's banned.
- So,
we're going there?
- We should
and Bronson's the one to lead us there.
- I don't know that we
can make it out there.
But I sure would like to get
away from all these Scrags.
- Bronson,
if you lead us, we'll follow you.
- Yeah.
And we can invite other rebels to join us.
- Sounds like a dream.
- It is.
- Yes sir, it's some good
stuff here I'll tell ya.
- Run, Scrags.
- I think we lost 'em.
- I don't know, baby.
- Bronson.
- Jump in the car,
they're coming.
- Where's Missle?
- Just get in the car.
- Go.
- Shoot 'em.
Oh man, that was crazy.
Good shooting, man.
- Yeah.
I'm glad we lost 'em.
- I'm sorry we lost her, Jam.
It was all my fault.
- It's not your fault, it's their fault.
They killed my family.
They killed your family, June and Missle.
They might both be dead.
- I shouldn't have brought
you two out here, okay?
- I wasn't gonna let
you do this by yourself.
You're all I have left.
You think we lost 'em?
- I think we have for now.
- General Malik, did you
catch all the rebels?
- No ma'am, we lost a couple
of soldiers and the rebels got away.
- Got away?
I want every one of those rebels hanging,
do you hear me General Malik?
- Yes, Madame President.
That's what I do.
- I don't think I need to remind you Malik
that these Pales are a disruptive force
that must be removed from our society.
Their abuse of power and
privilege must be terminated
and you are the one in
charge of ending it.
Retributions must be made.
- Yes, Madame President.
I will find them and destroy the rebels.
- Yes, find and destroy.
- What the heck is going on here?
- This world would be
such a beautiful place
if everything that we loved
wasn't being destroyed.
- What do we do now?
- We have to fight.
We have to fight for freedom
and we have to fight for survival.
- You're right.
We've gotta fight
for our way of life.
I can't take this.
- We're gonna make it.
- What was that?
- It came from over here.
It's okay friend, it's okay, it's okay.
Who did this?
- Scrags.
- Where were you?
- Planned-Opolis.
- That's where we were
headed, we were headed to
the breeding center to see if
we could find my wife June.
- June.
So beautiful.
- Where did you see her?
- Nurse,
- Did you hear that?
He said he spoke to somebody named June.
Do you think it was my June?
- Bronson, I don't know.
- Let's go check out his car.
- Poor guy.
- Check the glove box.
- The keys are in it.
- Let's check the trunk.
Look at that.
If June and Missle are alive,
the Scrags would've
taken her right in here.
- Wow, you're using
the dead guy's uniform.
How am I getting in?
- You're not.
- I'm not?
I can help you find them.
- I can't lose you, Jam.
This isn't gonna be easy.
I need you to stay here
and be ready to go.
- Okay.
I'll be ready.
- All right.
- Watch it, Pale.
- Come on, put your stuff down, hurry up.
Hands up against the wall.
Spread those legs.
What are you standing there for?
Come on, get your stuff.
Let's go, let's go.
- Get going, Pale.
- Attention,
this is a security zone.
All personnel are subject to search.
- Oh no.
- Keep moving, Pale.
- You're gonna like this.
- Hi, I need to spray for bugs.
- Y'all always late.
Dang Pales.
Here's a keycard to get in the rooms.
You have strict orders
to get in and get out.
Do you understand me?
- Yes ma'am.
- And don't talk to any of the prisoners.
- Yes ma'am.
- Dang Pales.
- Watch it, Pale.
- June baby it's me, it's me, it's me.
- Bronson?
Oh my god Bronson, this place is horrible.
- Don't worry baby, I'm
gonna get you outta here.
It's all right, it's okay.
It's okay.
- Attention,
this is a security zone.
All personnel subject to search.
Come on, come on, come on.
- Security breach, we have a female
incubator missing from
room 2042, get here now.
- Wow, I can't believe you got her out.
Where's Missle?
- I'm sorry Jam, I didn't see her.
There's thousands of women in there.
- What the heck happened here?
- A Pale male
broke in and abducted
one of the incubators, they
escape in a black Supercharger.
- What the?
Radio all the Rebel Enforcement crew.
Ask them to be on the
lookout for a black Charger.
Scour the city.
- Missle?
- Jam!
- Stop the car, that's Missle.
- What?
- Go.
I can't believe you're alive.
- I thought I was dead.
The Scrag government was
committing me to the breeding center.
Thank God you found me.
- We gotta get outta here quickly.
We need to head to the
Hinterlands right now.
- Do you think it's safe?
- I don't know but we're gonna find out.
- Anything's gotta be safer than here.
- Yeah.
Let's do it.
- Madame President, we
haven't found them yet.
I believe they left the city.
- Then look for them outside the city.
I want those rebels found.
- Do you think the Scrags
will follow us out here?
- Malik's bounty men would
follow us to hell and back.
But I don't think
they'll find us out here.
- Why do they hate us so much?
- We should be coming to
the Hinterland crossing.
You guys ready for this?
- Yes.
- Absolutely.
- I'm sure it'll be a whole
lot better than Planned-Opolis.
- Gimme a hand June baby.
- Get me General Malik.
- I feel better already, I do.
- Me too, baby.
- I wonder what we'll find out here?
- I'm sure it'll be something wonderful.
- Feels good to get away
from all those Scrags.
- Let's check this place out.
Looks like we're coming up to something.
- It's amazing.
- It must've been a resort or something.
Let's go check it out.
Wow look at this place, it's perfect.
- It's incredible.
It's beautiful.
- Yeah.
- It's incredible, like a fairy tale.
We could have a school here.
- I could help you.
- I know how to garden,
we can raise our own food.
We could have livestock.
- I can't wait.
Where do we even start?
- It's an incredible place for us to
build our new community but first we
gotta be prepared for any type of attack.
- Do you think
they'll come after us again?
- Yeah, they'll never leave us alone.
Is that Angel?
- What's he doing out here?
- Oh, hey Jam,
- What are you doing out
in these parts, Angel?
- I was just...
- Angel, it's General Malik.
What do you have for us?
- You radio back that
you're here right now.
- 10-four, I'm here.
- Good job, let's hear it.
- So you're the betrayer,
you killed my son,
kidnapped my wife and
had my family attacked.
- It wasn't just me.
- We need to kill him, you maniac!
- No, no, no, no.
Get some rope, we're gonna tie him up.
We've got work to do.
So now all we have to do it wait.
- Copy that.
- So why'd you do it?
- The money, it was too tempting.
I don't believe in this country anymore.
- You sold my family out for money?
You traitor.
- Oh my god, they're here.
- Get out and move the signs.
- I'm gonna release you,
despite what you did.
- It's an ambush, it's an ambush!
- So this is our new home.
A safe place where we can live
and love and start our new lives.
- This is awesome, you did it Bronson.
- We did it, we did it
and when we need supplies,
we can go back into the
city and raid for them.
- And we can save as many women as we can.
- Yeah and when the other rebels
hear about it, they'll come and join us.
- You can count on that.
- You guys ready to get started?
- Yeah.
- Yeah.
- All right let's go, come on.
- Hey guys, come and look what I found.
Come on.
- What is it?
- I don't know.
I was just going through some
stuff and came across it.
It says Do Not Destroy on the box.
- It sure is light.
- Whoa.
- Wow.
- I've only seen those in pictures.
- Is that real?
- Yes it is.
- Look, there's a letter in the box.
"Dear friend, I hope
you cherish this flag.
"This is all we have left
from our great country.
"They've taken everything else from us.
"We hope you feel the same faith
"and freedom we did
when you fly this flag.
"God bless you and God bless America."
- Come on.
- Isn't it beautiful?
- It sure is.
I feel something.
- I do too.
What is that?
- Freedom.
