INT. A CAB
driving through the streets of Germany in a small car is a
couple in their late 20’s, dressed in like tourists, both
look distracted, the girl is angry and the boy is looking
outside the window, the angry couple are having a heated
hey Howard, you know what, i was
wrong when i said, we would not
have fun in Germany! everything so
far has been perfect, we are
starving, your team just lost, we
went to see a stupid psychic
octopus called Paul how said your
team would lose.... not to forget
we missed our connecting flight to
go back home... not to forget that
we have 37 people on that flight
searching for us....do you realize
that we are on a very long detour?
far away from being remotely close
sabrina, i am aware of it, we did
all those things together and not
to forget the flight missing was
your fault only if you did not go
shopping, we would be home!
thats convineint, blame it on me!
you and you, checkout the German
girls they are so much cooler than
you has nothing to us getting late
right! glad you see the truth.
closes her eyes, and then does an imitation of pulling her
ok, so now shut up.lemme ask the
guy to take us to any place we can
go now... soak up a little Germany
whats there left to soak up? we
have covered almost everything
there is to be seen, even the comic
museum for gods sake!
yes, it cant be all of it, as a
history student please and for
heavens sake dont be so closed
about the subject! history is ever
changing, might be we get to catch
very dramatically says
oops! i wasnt aware i was talking
to professor Leonard fan base!,
unlike what you guys believe with
your prof, about all that ever
changing history hogwash i say,
history is constant!
makes a ssh sound
ok now ssh! ill ask the guy to
drive us to any interesting place
near by.Laufwerk uns zu einigen
interessanten Ort in der nähe
yes, you know unlike other i like
i know.... i was wondering if thats
the best you can do? "drive us to
some interesting place nearby"
air quotes and looks outside
yes, i am sorry your highness, that
i have bad grammar.
Uns zu den wewelsburg castle
The Wewelburg Castle which has now
opened a museum celebrating the
Nazi’s SS in Heinrich Himmler’s
headquarters where he masterminded
atrocities against Jews and other
persecuted minorities.Creepy Nazi
hangout + $10.7 million = Tourist
(in broken english)
It’s a memorial site and the
exhibition is called “Ideology and
Terror of the SS” Doesn’t quite
sound like a creepy Nazi museum to
oh! you bet! not many people accept
their crimes so openly, Germany has
the gall to own up...
is that your idea of fun?
no its my idea of interesting.
yaay! stuck with a geek!
(both look out)
you make a cute couple you know!
looks disgusted points to Howard
what? him and me? its like the
world has come to an end
here this is the place, ... you
have good stay, and dont fight with
(smiles to both as he get paid
EXT.WARM EVENING OUTSIDE A BIG BUILDING - THE WEWELBURG
ok, geek... lets soak up.
whats you problem?
both begin walking toward the entrance
how about being stuck with you? ok,
heres the deal, we go in, you go
your way i go mine! we meet at 8.00
the place closes at 8.30 PM.
ok freedom from the pain, i sign
INT A BIG NARROW PASSAGE WAY LEADING TO SECURITY GATE.
they walk towards the security bag check.
the bag checker frisks them
ok, madam are you together with
together? whay would you say that?
yes we are together, why?
because i have been told to ask if
anyone would be intrested in the SS
movie, we have the last 2 seats to
the SS movie tickets and were
wondering if you would want to
watch it? anyway the place will be
closed in half an hour, you cant
get to see the whole museum.
ok, ill take it... ask her...
(looks at her wickedly)
points to her ring
my girlfriend is angry!
no im not! i mean im not his....ok,
whatever gimme the ticket.
Howard looks at her. they start walking.
stop saying it!
INT A MOVIE THEATER SET UP, MUCH SMALLER
both walk in the the theater, and sit together. the movie
begins and the end is shown
ok, were done, lets go.. its 8.20
and its not funny that you fell
really it was bad! i cant watch
scared are you little jew boy?
are you silly, i mean what about a
little bit warmth and concern for
my people, are you so lame you cant
see, what just happened?
im sorry i dint realise you were so
touchy. i mean im really sorry.
ah! apology accepted, i know..
anyway i was kidding, i hated the
real funny and mature. wait for a
second i need to use the loo.
no in 2050 when the world has
ended. yes! now.
ok, ill wait outside, you come
walks out of the hall and Sabrina walks towards the ladies
Sabrina comes out a few minutes later, to find herself in a
brightly lit room. and she starts looking around. but is
unable to explain how she ended up in this room instead of
outside Howard waits for her impatiently, then decides to go
INT THE HALL BRIGHTLY LIT AND TASTEFULLY DONE
ok, this is weird, where the hell
did the museum go?
this is for real? i mean the
strange ways of the SS? the puzzle
entrance? making all the doors of
entry and exit identical to throw
of any doting enemy? holy cow!
shouts Sabrina’s name and tries to look around, only to hear
gasps, assuming them to be Sabrina.
Sabrina! Sabrina! sabby? do you
yes i hear you Howard, i have no
idea where i am, its a round room,
where are you? there are 17 doors
yes i know, this place is built to
throw people off and puzzle them.
stay where you are, ill try coming
to your direction.
that wont be useful the place echos
and dont think its possible to hear
my voice without being confused.
what do you want to do?
this may sound weird, but i think
we should stay in the place till
the museum opens again.
are you kidding me..?im going to
search you out... keep yelling, ill
find you and have you been crying?
sabrina hears footsteps but inst able to judge the direction
no i haven’t and wait i hear
footsteps may be you are closer
what? i haven’t moved a bit.
may be its someone from the museum,
trying to figure out whats
are your sure? they are coming
i dont know, but hopefully.
footsteps getting louder
MAN IN BLACK SUIT
yes madam, may i help?
yes please, me and a friend of mine
were supposed to be going to
America and we...
stop the story, get to the point.
sir we are stuck here, she with you
and im in a cicular room somewhere.
can you rescue us?
MAN IN BLACK SUIT
yes, i will get you out.
i hear footsteps too sir, are those
MAN IN BLACK SUIT
yes, they are.
Howard sees Sabrina and the man and looks almost relieved
yet looks surprised to see the black suit clad man.
trying to make a funny comment
sorry i was expecting an escort,
but i like the Germans homely
MAN IN BLACK SUIT
you are a funny man! well i wasnt
expecting visitors... i havent in
the last few years!
how do we get out sir? can you lead
MAN IN BLACK SUIT
are you in a hurry? would you care
for a cup of coffee? or are you the
young spoilt brats who drink only
Sabrina looks at Howard and then looks back to the man
no, sir we have to be headed out.
we have a flight tomorrow.
MAN IN BLACK SUIT
the museum is locked,
sir but you got in, may be you know
how to get out.
MAN IN BLACK SUIT
haven’t been out in many years...
anyway. i cant let you out i dont
own the keys... i own the place.
you own the place?
MAN IN BLACK SUIT
don’t looks so quizzical girl, i am
the curator Floda Schicklgruber.
Floda? thats a stange name... what
is the meaning of the name anyway?
Floda means a lot of things, one
being, very powerful. god like!
this guys parents dint give him a
can i take u for coffee?
extends his hand in a direction.
Sabrina and Howard follow
so what are you doing in Buren?
we are history students from the
university of Texas, we signed up
for the trip to Germany, we missed
our flight this morning so we are
ah! history students no wonder you
found the right place.
huh? we thought Berlin was where
the action was, we just stumbled
into Wewelsburg, by accident.
thanks to my friend here.
yes, Berlin is the place for
action, Hitler wanted people for
people to believe, but deep within
Germany was where hitler was and
yes, i said he was and will be, his
heart is buried here.
his heart? wasnt the chancellery
burnt down to cinders? where do you
get the heart? and also we know for
a fact he was never in Buren, it
was Himmler who came to Buren
really? ah... facts... how they
change everything you believe, his
heart was his sweetheart, Eva
Braun, she lies here, forever she
was Hitlers heart.
again, Hitler died so did his wife.
yes, but conspiracy theorists have
always argued that may be they
survived, may be it was Hitlers
doppelganger who died instead?
conspiracy theorists, historians,
academicians and all get it wrong
all the time.
INT A OFFICE WELL ECORATED WITH PAINTINGS, WELL WITH A HUGE
as floda serves coffee
sip away, may be ill give you a
tour around the place, will may be
open your eyes to the reality... or
may be not.
ok, i am game for the night at the
i dont really think we have a
choice do we?
yes, you dont, nobody has a choice!
they do things on circumstances.
im happy munching away and sipping
coffee. but ill join you anyway.
they finish coffee, and head out of the office into a long
passage. and see the board saying " new exibits"
new exhibits?! ironical huh? new
exhibits in a museum.
irony is that all the exhibits are
old and yet its is called the new
miss smarty, i think i know that.
its called "new exibits" not new
items. isn’t is sir?
ah, new old.. whos to judge?
ok, kids. lets go in. well exibit
one.. Hitlers tea cup...
what do you know, they find stuff
somehow don’t they?
ya, im sure Hitler used a yellow
mug to drink his coffee...
meaning? you don’t believe that the
stuff put out as exhibit is real?
its real alright, but its not the
how do you know?
because i own them!
Howard murmurs inaudibly.
yes, i understand you own them,
they are yours... thats a great
you dont believe me?
well i do, but its called stealing
if you claim all the stuff in the
museum is yours isnt it?
hmm cant call whats mine, mine...
kids these days! wait here, ill
come back and get you. and don’t
move. i don’t want you to get lost
ok, can we look around?
yes sure, but in the hall..
Floda leaves the two of them, and Sabrina and Howard walk
along side each other.
honestly is Floda a really weird
name or what? like really dude i’d
change my name!
must be the guy is German, Germans
have weird names. Hitlers name was
Schicklgruber! beat that!
i already did, our crazy guide is a
Schicklgruber! Floda Schicklgruber
like you said guys parents never
gave him a chance...
finally we agree on something.
Sabrina walks to a glass case with a rose in
check this, they say this was the
pin that Braun wore on her wedding
day, rather her death day. a
similar piece was found in a
picture taken before her death.
ok, thats ok, check this out
it is said that this is the replica
of the iron medal Hitler wore on
this is so cool, Hitlers art school
letter, he was chucked out of the
school. he preserved the letter.
Floda appears and Sabrina and Howard jump.
we did not hear you sir! thats why
thats ok, im used to moving around
without getting too much attention
i have had too much of it.
so sir, how did you get into a
history museum, you dont look like
a man who would choose history.
some men create history, some study
it, i just live in it.
you are a complex man! how
difficult it is to figure you out.
just what my wife would say.
you have a wife? where does she
she is here, somewhere. ah the rose
picks up the rose pin, beautiful just like my wife.
the rose pin belonged to Eva Braun,
yes it did, she was the most
beautiful creature, so smart and
funny, the merry widow.
the merry widow in reference to the
fact that she lived in with Hitler
and was not married?
some say this some say that,
she was Eva Hitler!
Floda looks dreamy.
yes, was, did you know that Hitler
called himself Woolf the first time
he met her?
i am aware of it, it was raining
outside and he walked into the bar,
he fell in love with the woman the
minute he saw her, he would love
her forever. Eva! she was dressed
in yellow and blue and her eyes
were blue too... too perfect
Howard and Sabrina look flummoxed by the amount of detail.
too many history book eh sir?
making up a fancy Hitler for
no, not really... he dint drink did
nt mean he dint go to bars, and
also this was not history book,
there is a bar is called wolf,
somewhere close by, great bar, good
booze.. my friends had a good time.
i am not dumb, i know you kids
drink and indulge in alcohol, i
suggest you give it up though, if
you want to live a life like mine.
hey howie, you know who else was a
tee totaller? Hitler.
so howie, you are indeed not into
alcohol im impressed i must say.
yes sir, made that mistake of
getting drunk and doing something
stupid long back.
are you telling me you gave up
Floda is impressed and looks upon Howard and chuckles.
yes sir, all clean
ah! i remember something. moving
why are there only replicas here?
everything Hitler had is with him.
ok, so you mean to say everything
he owned is with him in hell?
hell heaven... somewhere...
Floda’s phone buzzes
excuse me, i will be gone for
sometime. you look at stuff and
make yourself comfortable.
floda the hall leaves
HOWARD AND SABRINA
that was strange, for a guy who
never goes out or have visitors to
get phone calls.
this guys is nuts! i mean he stays
in a museum! dude thats crazy!
first of all, i am not a dude and
secondly he is a curator who is too
attached to his stuff, what is so
do you realise you have called me
have i? thats weird, reminds me of
when we were 8 and were friends you
were not a cool dude back then! you
were howie my buddy!
and you were sabby, the girl with
the black cat, were you into
witchcraft by any chance?
yes i am, my broom is at home, just
got my crooked hat to Germany!
ah! i am right again, boy it feels
good to be right.
when are you not right?
every time you throw me
disapproving looks, like one your
throwing now? i need to prove
everything i say to you.
happens to the best of us.. anyway
check this. exibit 42 "the pistol
that killed him, a PPK 7.65"
i am actually glad we missed the
flight, this place is fantastic!
moving towards a pile of frames and a few pictures roughly
hey check these paintings out,
these were made by Hitler.
he made them during the war? god!
this guy had the time?
really? during the war? looks like
he worked well in stress, look at
all the detail he covered.
and here people think he was bad
with stress, the story where Hitler
hates stress so much he would
that was more than stress, he would
be in so much trouble had the army
got hold of him, he was a dead man
hey if Hitler was so smart, isn’t
it possible like prof Leonard says
of the body double?
do i see Leonard fans.? well he
says may be Hitler was smart, may
be he did escape, you never know.
check this out its a gigantic
mirror, how cool!
yep! thats his too... do you notice
something strange, this whole room
rather the whole museum is
dedicated to Hitler and nothing
else? its personal stuff Hitler
had, his books, his paintings his
everything.. right up to his mug.
now that you say it, it is a little
weird, since it is a Nazi museum
and has to do only with Hitlers
hey look the mirror looks directly
onto Floda’s office, check this
that guy has good art work in his
office, im impressed! honestly such
beautiful images of the chancellery
gardens and Berlin. there was also
a picture of a old home with a kid.
its so beautiful!
hey howie, just look at this
yes, exibit 57, what about it? it
is signed by Hitler. so? he did
sign his paintings.
flips the paper over and hold it toward a little beam of
light the date on the paper in pencil said 31 july 1946
what? thats impossible, 1946?
Hitler died on may 2 in 1945.
may be he did not.
look through more stuff, this could
have easily been forged,
authenticity is still an issue
i dont think so, howie, check the
picture of the chancellary
Howard standS looking shocked and amazed
Dont you see it? we all know that
the building was destroyed during
the war and was rebuilt only in
1946 using red tiles, during
Hitlers time, the structure was a
brown building with a hug arch. had
Hitler drawn it during the war, it
should have with arch and be in
i dont get a very good feeling
about this place, i think we should
try and find a way out.
snooping around are we?
for the last time stop shocking
us.! we want to get out of
here right now,
i dont have the keys,
you are the curator how do you not
have the keys to this place?
like i said i own the place, i dont
have the keys. again be nice and no
snooping, just look. dont touch a
ok, this man sabby is giving me the
creeps! he talks like he knows
everything like an insider, he
talks english better than most
americans his german is flawless!
his german? when did you listen to
i heard him over the phone saying
Ich habe Besucher über, sehen Sie
einige wo sonst, ja, sollte Gute,
what does it mean anyway?
roughly translted means, i have
visitors, meet you some place else!
you dont know a word of german do
not the slightest, thank you google
and thank you apple, for
translators! i am good at picking
up sounds! so hence the good accent
ok, im impressed.. so stop!
if this guys is meeting someone, he
has got to get out, but how?
hey something weird, its a tiny
sketch, inside his Berlin picture.
a triangle and red lines on it
leading to to blue opening of some
this is the wewelsburg castle! and
the lines are the pathways out.
since the SS squad must have had
trouble initially this picture was
supposed to be a indicator of where
the outlets were, and the blue
outlet is not colour, it is ink!
that was caused by the touching of
the pen by the SS guards!
makes sense! i have no idea how we
are going to get out, i sort of
have a feeling our very friendly
guest may not have friendly
intentions after all. he is
obsessed with Hitler, talks like he
has been around here for ages .
whats with all the phone
did you hear him again?
dint you? he said something about
publishing art work.then suggested
that exhibit 59 the Berlin drawing
be made the background of the
opening ceremony posters
that is strange, considering that
it is not the most important art
piece here, neither is it so great.
why use this one?
this may sound stupid, but is there
a possibility that the SS guard is
trying to have a reunion. the
poster looks harmless, blow it up
and use to such that the people it
intends to reach, the message will
reach clear and not raise
yes, the ceremony is tomorrow, dont
you realise, we are not guests
here, we are hostages, who are held
captive by a mad man who will put
us up as display, like Mussolini!
yes, we need to find a way out. if
he has left us so comfortably..
there is little or no possibility
that there is a way out.
wait i think i just found a way,
the painting is a north south
painting meaning the blue outlet is
the north, give me the magnet you
stole from his office!
i did not steal it! i picked it up
to look at it...
yes, im sure now.
she suspends the magnet in the air using a piece of rope she
finds on the floor.
points to a direction behind her.they hear footsteps clearly
and more distinctly, each second.
he knows the place too well, so
just hide in some place!
no just follow my instructions and
run he cannot catch up he is alone
and he is old.
they come to an intersection
your left, run!
after the fast paced action , Sabrina and Howard are
breathless and straining to hear foot steps,
i think we lost him.
you know what struck me.
Howard looks up to her for an answer.
isnt the resemblence uncanny? the
mad man we ran from and the mad man
many jews ran from?
are you trying to imply what i
think you are?
this man was not the curator, he
was the man! he was Hitler. that is
why the place is shrine to his
memoirs, because he lives there!
this is the escape route, i am sure
if we walk further we are going to
find an opening that will answer a
Howard looks like he has understood
yes! i get it... all along this man
was hinting at being a shadow and
we were too narrow minded to
register it! Floda is not a name,
floda is an anagram for ADOlf.
and Schicklgruber was Hitlers last
exactly, eveything he said about
the artifacts was true, he said
they are real but not good
enough,he spoke of Eva with
respect, because she was his wife.
the village buren, is a dedication
to braun! get that?
only if i applied so much in
class.. let run from here. now.
walk straight, we should be there
any minute now.
INT DIMLY LIT ROOM, DECORATED WITH GIANT TABLE AND A
they walk through a short passage way to reach a dark room
dimly lit. in the middle of which is a table with 12 chairs.
and at the head of the table is the man in the black suit.
i knew you would come here, many
years since i have had visitors, i
knew you were trouble the minute i
saw you. too much knowledge and the
arrogance to not accept with a
little open mindedness, ah!
education! well you certainly seem
to be doing just fine knowing
Hitler died in 1945! and your dear
ones will be glad to know that you
died in a car accident in the south
of Berlin. ah! what a painful
why do you want us dead?
i dint want you dead, i wanted you
to be messengers of true values.
you are a scumbag and nothing more,
if only you could see through your
shallow ways, you would realise
that you hate yourself, you
pretended to kill yourself, that
was not there.
ssh! little boy, dont cry! i was
smart i walked in front of the
people, i live with them, among
them and yet here they are blind to
it. i disarm them with sheer charm
and you question my ways? you have
to realise that fools cant be
fooled, i fooled those who were too
lost to be fooled any further.
i hate you!
trust me the feeling is mutual.
a gunshot is heard at a distance and then chaos erupts as
Sabrina pulls out a pepper spray from her backpack and blows
it straight in his face, leaving him and the few others who
have been behind the doors in a pain from burning eyes.
they run for quiet sometime untill they realise they are
well outside Buren and can be safe they collape on a park
bench only to wake up early in the morning at the hospital
INT A LARGE HOSPITAL ROOM
doctor, where am i?and what
happened last night?
Sabrina we found you and your
friend on our bench last night you
were in bad shape you had cuts and
bruises and we have been trying to
help them heal.
where is my friend?
your friend is fine, he has a few
more deeper cuts, he is more
concerned about you, my be you go
over and say hello.
may be i should
room 106 , he truly cares about
sabrina blushes and walk away where she meets Howard.
INT A LARGE HOSPITAL ROOM THE ROOM SAYING 106
how you doing?
im good, i hear you have bad cuts
and wounds. i hope we get better
soon, i need to rush back home and
definitely take Prof Leonardos
classes about evolving history!
thats what you can say? college? i
was wondering if you would be my
date, and you say Prof Leonards
classes?! boy i was right, you were
yes, i mean im not boring, i would
go out with you howie! i like you!
i like you too!
and as for yesterday, it never
yes it never did. we met with an
accident in the south of Berlin
i wonder what will happen if the SS
we can wait and watch.
