SCENE 1. There seems KALEA in red looks like an old-fashioned lover with her odd brunette hair and floral necklace. KALEA looks so tired yet her tanned face showing that she’s into her earphone and already on swing mode. KALEA is about to take her clothes off wandering that it has been a perfect day. As she is taking the top piece, KRIS comes and holds a glass of yellow juice yelling at her.
KRIS (yelling). Kalea! Ya ready for the surfing competition next week?
KALEA (shaking hands and hugging). Aloha Kris.. Krisanjani, you seem so right! How’s life? Been a year, huh?
KRIS. Life’s been so dashing! I’m back, you can rely on me.
KALEA (pointing to KRIS). I got you baby! You mind to swipe a bit? I’m enjoying the sun.
KRIS (swiping right). Oh I’m sorry. How about lunch?
KALEA. Well I have no doubt, no short pants!
KRIS. Yeah! I know my sexy feet. Luckily you had been so dig it.
KALEA (chuckling). Ho really? Wear anything properly my dear Kris!
SCENE 2. One year ago, KALEA visited where KRIS lived in Sumatra, Indonesia. Since her first day, she is dazzled of the beauty of Mentawai Islands. She takes her luggage, directly heads to shore, meets new four guys, and pretends that she is just the local. These guys have just starred at her and can’t stop to keep their sight towards her. KRIS comes and joins the talk that just goes way fun about one hour in the orange evening. He is about to invite her to look around on the West Coast.
KRIS. Hun, I wanna see you the best surf spot ever on the island, you gotta seet this!
KALEA. Well, where is it? Show me everything nice here hun.
KRIS. On the West Coast, the wave is incredibly stunning. The sunset awaits!
IPOEL (shouting). No, you couldn’t! It’s forbidden.
KRIS. You have no idea Poel! I swear to God nothing ever happened to me. I used to spend my evenings there alone.
IPOEL. You’re the local, she’s just an outsider. There’s a strong power which covers the beach, it’s forbidden for strangers.
KRIS. Don’t you ever said so anymore! You consider about the turtles’ life right? I know what I’m doing. I’m going.
IPOEL. You couldn’t without us!
KRIS. No, we can. Come on dude!
KALEA. Kris, it’s okay if we can’t go there. Many good places to see here, even here I love this beach.
KRIS. You will get more, trust me.
KALEA. Really, I’m curious about the coast, yet, if it’s forbidden then don’t go.
KRIS. No, you gotta go with me. I used to be there, you know that.
IPOEL. I can’t ban you anymore, make sure you’ll be here before the sun sets.
KRIS. I will!
SCENE 3. About twenty minutes of walking, they finally get the shore. KALEA keeps her smiles on fire, she has already been in love with the island and her lover. In the shade of palm tree, they lay down their bodies enjoying this wonderful evening.
KALEA. Thank you my dear. You have shown me this magnificent view. I couldn’t get enough.
KRIS (Smiling towards KALEA). I told you nothing to worry about.
KALEA. Can we go back now? The sun is about to dive into the ocean.
KRIS. Yeah, go go go!
SCENE 4. On the way back home, there is a strange feeling she feels. She really wants to get off shore and swim a while. She can’t deny her desire of playing and swimming in the water. Without asking KRIS, she is very sure to jump off the fifty-meter cliff standing on her left side. Running as fast as she could, she get the edge. She really has no doubt looking down the dark water and directly she jumped off. Realizing his lover in danger, in a rush, he catches up her. KRIS has no idea what just happened, all he knows that he has to get her soul safe. KALEA has been in the water then followed by KRIS. She has been lost in the darkness, KRIS even can’t find her. In searching of KALEA meanwhile, he is sure that he has heard IPOEL yelling hardly and calling their names. Carrying torches, IPOEL and some villagers just realize something bad is happened to his friend. They come closer to the shore and don’t find KALEA around him.
KRIS (shouting loudly). Kalea..Kalea…!!! Where are you? It’s not a funny thing. I swear, when I get you, I’ll kiss you much time!
IPOEL (in a rush). Kris! What happened? Where’s Kalea? Where is she?
KRIS (crying). I have no idea, she’s been lost there down the cliff.
IPOEL (blaming KRIS). What just she had done? You already know the story about the cliff, how could you let her do that?
KRIS (sobbing). It just happened, I don’t know why!
IPOEL. I told you buddy! Now let’s find her. You gotta show us where exactly she had been lost.
SCENE 5. They continue to search where KALEA is. From the shore to the water, since six hours, it results nothing. IPOEL and the villagers decide to go back to the village, yet KRIS refused it. He wants to keep searching his girlfriend. IPOEL keeps telling him it is too dangerous to stay alone there, it is way better if they continue it in the next day. KRIS feels empty about anything and is already hopeless. He follows them to go back home.
IPOEL. It’s getting late. Tomorrow is a good idea to continue this.
KRIS. No, I will stay.
IPOEL. Don’t you ever dare bud! It’s too dangerous here. I know you’re upset. Please be make sense.
KRIS (sobbing). I have no idea, I want her now, I want her!
IPOEL. Tomorrow will be fine. Let’s get back to the village.
SCENE 6. Passing through an alley, a lush daisy bush, and the sounds of nocturnal creatures deep in the woods create a sense of mysterious path. Village light has finally on their sights. They have planned before to come to the house of the paranormal living on the dale near the small lake in order to ask for help. They arrive to the face of village, they should take about thirty minutes to get this old man’s house. Silent village, six of them walk through a quite lane in a rush. Dogs bark as if they have seen ghosts in each corner of the village. They finally arrive at the old man’s house.
IPOEL (knocking the door). Good night! We need some help. Hello..
THE PARANORMAL (opening the door). What kind of thing that makes you have no doubt to be here? I guess it’s about the stranger.. that girl.
IPOEL. How do you know her? Please help us to find her.
THE PARANORMAL (convincing). Hard.. it’s just no chance.
IPOEL (digging). How could you say so? It’s the monster who did it right?
THE PARANORMAL. I don’t find any mystical thing here, it was an accident.
KRIS (snapping). She acted so strange, like she had no idea what she had done to jump off the cliff when the day was getting dark! How could it be there was no mystical thing here?
THE PARANORMAL. I feel she’s still alive out there. She could be stay somewhere. I can feel that. That’s what I can explain to you, it’s enough. You all can go home now.
IPOEL. Thank you sir. Good night!
SCENE 7. A new day has come, the sun shines strong as the fishermen just came back from the ocean. They have been ready to search KALEA. There are KRIS, IPOEL, and JUN. In the fish market, the villagers do their daily business. It wis crowded. The last fishing boat just came from the shadow of the horizon. It can be seen a man with bucket hat docking his boat, HERI, two meters next to his red and new fishing boat. They have been ready to leave the island for some days. After sipping a morning coffee, the boat slowly throws off the dock. As the daylight is getting blazing, they never lose their sight towards every direction. They have been arrived around an island which has been known as the wildest. There, some boars welcomed them. KRIS never stops shouting KALEA, so do the others.
KRIS (shouting out loud). Kalea..Kalea..!!!
IPOEL (shouting out loud). Kalea…!!!
SCENE 8. Six hours pass by, nothing is found but some wrecks of fishing boats around the island. The island with big wave is the next stop. It is forbidden to be here due to the local belief that there is a big monster which has been living. They never lose their belief, they trust God more than anything. The day get dark, the storm is about to come. The boat then docks in the shade of a lush tree. It is impossible to be continued, the storm has already been so remarkable. Suddenly, such a giant creature comes up from the sea. It looks like an octopus. The eye is deep red, he is about to enfold the boat with his long tentacles.
JUN. Release the rope Poel!
IPOEL. Kris, throw the stick to me soon! I mean the paddle.
KRIS (in anger towards the monster). Get the hell out of here bastard!
IPOEL (slapping the monster with paddle). Eat it! Fuck off!
KRIS (striking his eye with a stick). Go away!
SCENE 9. It doesn’t work, their effort has managed to chase the monster away. The monster fades away into the depth. Their food supplies have diminished. They get to back home really soon. In the afternoon, they decide to go back home. In the strait, something weird happens. The wave stream pushes them away from the island and takes them somewhere. They get an island which is never told and known before. Strangely, another giant octopus blocks their way up. They try and try, this one is bigger and stronger one. IPOEL’s father had told him once that if someday he meets a huge sea creature, the thing that he needs to do is reading the spell he taught and hits the head part. He immediately practices his father’s suggestion.
IPOEL (reading the spell). Hom umbak bedesir, angin bergelumbang, Jubata satu punya kuasa!
KRIS (in anger). You can’t break us anymore!
JUN (slapping the paddle). Fuck off!
SCENE 10. They manage to make the octopus go. The spell works well indeed. Everything seems under control so far. The stream can’t be controlled, they hardly control the boat but it is useless. The boat just follows it. Now, they have arrived exactly to the cliff where KALEA jumped off. JUN, the guy controlling the wheel now surprises and says he has seen a yellow scarf on the rock before them. Everyone simultaneously sees to the rock, but nothing they can see but a rock. JUN convinces that there lies a yellow scarf. IPOEL believes there is a power which protects the scarf, it is mysterious. He knows that JUN can see and hear anything that ordinary man can’t. IPOEL then asks all of them to pray to God and follow the spell he reads as he gets one paddle into the water and stirs it seven times.
IPOEL (praying and stirring the paddle into the water). God, you have been so kind to us, now at this moment, we unite our hearts. Please, help us to find Kalea, amen.
KRIS (praying). I apologize for ever mistakes I have made. I love you, I love her. Please unite us together again.
JUN (pointing towards KALEA). There! She’s there! Go forward!
KRIS (directly jumping off the boat and swimming toward KALEA). She’s still alive. Thank God! Guys come on, get the boat docked. I need your help Poel!
PAUL (swimming towards them). I got you, hoo thank God. Let’s take hare to the village.
(The day is getting dark, as he is giving her respiration from his. She awakes and doesn’t remember anything. The sky turns into violet, one thing noticed that mysterious thing exists in life. They head back to the village and planned to surf the next day on the East Shore.)
