ONE GLOOMY, SUNLESS DAY, KOA LOOKS UP AND SPOTS A MAN WALKING ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THE STREET. THE MAN IS WALKING AT A BRISK PACE AND WEARING A VERY FAMILIAR UNIFORM. KOA’S EYES WIDEN, AND HE PULLS THE CRUMPLED OLD PHOTOGRAPH OF HIS FATHER OUT OF HIS POCKET. IT’S THE SAME UNIFORM! KOA LEAPS UP AND RUNS AFTER THE MAN, HOPE SHINING IN HIS EYES.

BUT BEFORE KOA REACHES HIM, THE MAN MEETS UP WITH A WOMAN AND YOUNG GIRL - HIS FAMILY. HE GENTLY PICKS UP HIS DAUGHTER AND WALKS AWAY WITH HIS WIFE, A CASUAL DAY OUT. KOA STOPS IN HIS TRACKS, WATCHING, CRESTFALLEN. AS THE RAIN STARTS TO FALL, HE FLIES INTO A RAGE, KICKING A TRASH CAN AND PUNCHING A NEARBY WOODEN FENCE.
