YOUR GUIDE TO OUR WORLD...

THE CHILD SITS ALONE. IT IS CLEAR THAT HE HAS BEEN ALONE FOR A NUMBER OF DAYS. HE LIES ON THE FLOOR IN THE MIDDLE OF THE ROOM, SCRIBBLING ENDLESSLY. EVEN THOUGH HIS WORLD IS EMPTY, IN HIS MIND THE WALLS OF HIS ROOM DISAPPEAR AS HE IS LOST IN HIS FANTASIES. HE DREAMS OF THE GREAT WAR HEROES OF THE PAST AND IMAGINES WHAT HIS OWN FATHER MAY HAVE BEEN LIKE.

SUDDENLY, A COLD DRAFT SHAKES HIM. HE SITS UP, SCANNING THE ROOM. HIS EYES SETTLE ON A DUSTY PHOTOGRAPH HANGING ON THE WALL BY THE DOOR. IT SHOWS A MAN IN A SPACE PILOT UNIFORM HOLDING HIS HELMET UNDER HIS ARMS, AND A YOUNG WOMAN - THE BOY’S MOTHER. AS HIS EYES DRIFT OVER TO HER GAUNT FIGURE, THE BOY’S EXPRESSION TURNS COLD. HE GLANCES AT THE DOORWAY, SEEING NOTHING BUT BLACKNESS, AND FEELS UTTERLY ALONE.
