Narrator: Let me tell you a story…the story of the oldest murder of the universe. Once upon a time, an argument ensued between the God of life and the God of death over who is superior. At a time when every human and animal would die only from natural causes, the God of Life would naturally emerge as the winner. However, the God of Death refused to give in. The God of life had a parrot as his pet. The God kept the essence of all the world’s life, inside the parrot’s scarlet chest. At dusk, the God would let the parrot out into the world. As the God of death rode his stallion to those awaiting death, the bird would quietly follow Him and bring them back to life. The god of death finally figured out what was going on. One day, he caught the parrot and strangled him to death. That was the start of a series of murders in this world. Enough of this gibberish. You better start giving me some real answers. I am suggesting that this kind of truth-seeking interrogation is dangerous. Did you not understand? I get it. You don’t want me digging into you. Is that a threat? I really would like to know the truth about Lisa though. It’s interesting that you’d ask me about that. What if I ask you the same question? What exactly is the truth about Lisa? If you’re going to keep avoiding this topic, I’ll need to share my doubts with our friends. See, I have no doubts, and don’t need to share it further with anyone else. Let me tell you.Sam? An urgent thing. Siva is back. He invited me to Lisa’s old farmhouse… Sam, I wonder what all will play out this time. Who cares? We go there, have a few drinks, and then get back. Right. This is the place. Take a right here. Wow! We’re out in the boonies. Yes. This is his wife’s old farmhouse. It’s my first time here. Interesting place. Cool stuff, man. Please come in. Really cool place, you’ve got here, man. This looks like a mysterious little hiding place Sam, your usual. Right? So, What’s up? When did you get back after your travels? Travel? No. I never went anywhere. Really? So, you’ve been here? I think it was Muhu who said you’re away somewhere else. We don’t really have to leave some place to go somewhere else. There. He’s started that boring philosophy. You can no longer answer a simple question. It must be all those fat books you keep reading. Sam, do you know the meaning of the word Philosophy? Love of knowledge. Love for truth. Once we know the truth, nothing seems simple anymore. Have a drink. What are you having? May be a tea or something? Did you stop drinking? Not really. Have to drive back, right? Need to stay sober. Stay sober. Drive back. Both sound optional. That boring philosophy again. Don’t bother with the tea. Dude, just have a drink!. Ok. fine. So, tell us. What’s going on with you? Oh.. nothing much. Life as usual The good old times. Songs.. poem recitation… drinks. What’s going with Muhu these days? Is he joining us tonight? He seems so busy these days. With so many “families” he has to support, maybe he has to work extra hard in the one job he’s got. He’s quite a playboy. He seems to have a mistress wherever he goes. The irony is that his wife Priya is the only one who doesn’t seem have a clue about all this. Sam, that’s not an irony. When someone who we trust a lot betrays us, it’s quite natural that we are the last to figure that out. If your wife were to cheat on you, I bet you’ll be the last one to know. That must be Naveen.Here he is.. the busy executive! Seems like you guys have been socializing for a while.. Have not seen you in a long time.. Come.. sit. Naveen, ready for a drink? Usual stuff.. Where are you now coming from? Mexico. My company is starting a new offshore development center there. Two weeks in Germany before that. We secured a fantastic project there. Before that india, Singapore and New Zealand. Quite frankly, I spend more time on planes than at home these days. It’s become part of my job. Wow.. that’s a lot of travel. How’re things with you guys. Cheers! 🥂 Siva, Is Muhu joining us? I haven’t seen him in so long. Have any of you been in touch with him? It’s been a while. Do you have his number? I tried calling him recently. He changed his number; I have his number. Dude, let me ask you.. doesn’t life get boring when you fly around every day in the month? Not really.. I’m used to it. It’s all part of business. Look at Shiva. He doesn’t even get out of the house. Is that right, Shiva? What’s the thrill in staying in the house? Looks like he’s dozed off already. I can’t imagine staying at home. I will go crazy. Taking a couple of days off in the middle of these busy trips is a good idea though. There’s this place in Finland. A huge swimming pool. Dark all around. You can just float in the water for hours. I’ve heard it’s a unique experience. Apparently, CEOs and big shots go there to relax. That sounds like a good business idea. We can start something like that around here pretty easily. You guys have nothing else other than this business and corporate stuff to talk about? How boring! Bro .. that’s how we make a living. There’s no one to hand out money if we were to stay at home, like you. Oh! You have divorce money from your wife.. sorry… I mean, ex-wife. That’s a good point.. You must have made a lot of money from this divorce deal. (Scoffing) .. Money. Have any of you experienced solitude? It’s like being imprisoned. My jaw started hurting not speaking to anyone for a long time. Then I started talking to myself. I don’t understand why you’re confining yourself to the house though. It’s a great location. Go outside and walk. You’re right. I often felt like confining myself to the house. Then, I picked up reading as a hobby… and lived as a bookworm for a long time. Then I turned to movies. And then to sequels and documentaries. Now I’m really into Serial killers. That is what interests me now. From politicians to murderers, everything is out there on the internet. I could tell from looking at your playlist. I’m afraid you will think of killing someone after watching all these. We must apply what we learn, right? You just reminded me of something. My latest research is on how to kill people. Let’s play a game. You called us here to play some board game? Not a board game. Much more interesting. Just sit in a circle and get ready. I’ll set it up. Oh.. this is the game? Nice! Hang on. Not yet... we are two lands separated by a red sea. The sea smells like blood. Death, the wooden bridge which connects them. Now, drink. Bottoms up. Cheers. 🥂 Now is when the real game starts. There’s poison in what we just drank. Right. Alcohol is poison indeed. Don’t laugh. I am serious. It wasn’t salt on one of the shot glasses. It was poison. We just said cheers to the death of one of us. Truly, he’s the lucky guy. The one who dies instantly in peace.Dude.. stop joking around.Siva, get up! Scared? You guys got scared. Didn’t you? Didn’t I tell you it was a game? And, you guys got scared? Hey Sam, No. Let go. You know how he is. See, life can be exciting even when I’m holed up in the house. You don’t like it when I tricked you just a little, even after I said this was a game. How will you feel if a trusted friend were to betray you? What the heck? Instead of wasting time playing these crazy games, perhaps you should have… never mind..I better stop there. Let’s get out.I don’t want to be a witness to murder. You better not call us again for this kind of stuff.Sam? An urgent thing. Siva is back. He invited me to Lisa’s old farmhouse. She didn’t dump him and disappear. He killed her and buried her body somewhere. Hey, pull over. Stop the car. Muhu’s voice mail. Sam? An urgent thing. Siva is back. He invited me to Lisa’s old farmhouse. She didn’t dump him and disappear. He killed her and buried her body somewhere. He told me all this when I kept pressing him about her. Sam, I am scared. I’m getting out of here now. Shouldn’t we inform the police? The life of solitude is over, my love. I begin my journey to join you. The life of solitude is over, my love. I begin my journey to join you. Death builds a bridge connecting the lands that separated us. The life of solitude is over, my love. I begin my journey to join you. I carry with me many memories from bundles of termite-eaten books. I leave behind this forest covered by rain clouds that rise like butterflies. The life of solitude is over, my love. I begin my journey to join you. We are two lands. A red sea with the smell of fresh blood separates us.
