INT. BUNKER, Berlin, April 29th 1945 –DAY

ADOLF HITLER, murderer of millions, master of destruction, stands with his eyes glaring at a closed fist. He turns his head to the right, and glances upon EVA Braun, his mistress of many years. An acknowledgement between the two is had.


ADOLF HITLER: (Voice-over)

If I can send the flower of the German nation into the hell of war without the smallest pity for the spilling of precious German Blood, then surely I have the right to remove millions of an inferior race that breeds like vermin…”


Adolf, Eva, and a dozen more people dressed in Nazi Uniforms all get on the their knees. He slowly bites into thin vial cyanide. Seconds later, he brandishes a pistol and shots himself in the head. Adolf’s body slowly begins a small descent from where he was kneeling into a BLACK ABSYS. His body twists and turns through the black in slow motion.
INT. WHITE ROOM-DAY

Vignette of HITLER: through the black abyss, we slowly zoom in on ADOLF HITLER glancing up at a large throne in a brightly lit white room. He brushes himself off.


THE ALMIGHTY: (Voice-over)

Finally, before the throne of Judgment have you come? From the flames of the scorched earth you have left behind. The monster faces his maker. What dare you have to say in defense of yourself? To make my decision any less pronounced.


HITLER glances around the room, peering his eyes for the source of the voice.
THE ALMIGHTY: (Voice-over) (Cont’d)

What claims of mercy have you that you should not be denounced?


ADOLF HITLER

I did what I thought was right. But mercy is Your nature and the proof of your great might. Should you destroy what is left of me now how could you even claim that you are any better and deserving of your fame?


THE ALMIGHTY: (Voice-over)

Fame?
ADOLF HITLER

You’re name resonates through the hearts of many. I wish to see the face of whom I am talking to. Before you banish me to an eternity in Hell.
THE ALMIGHTY: (Voice-over)

First know one thing and learn it well. I make no place that mankind call hell.


ADOLF HITLER

Why create the name of the devil?


THE ALMIGHTY: (Voice-over)

That is no creation of mine but that of mankind. And even if there were such of a place in existence…I would never send a soul full of rage to horror’s fate. And mark it well because I bear no grudge. Though mercy’s due will I truly judge. No soul is too small and none too great. That is not dealt an honest fate.


ADOLF HITLER

Is that true?


THE ALMIGHTY: (Voice-over)

Yes.
ADOLF HITLER

But where were you? If you disliked my deeds when cries for help were often made you didn’t serve their needs?
THE ALMIGHTY: (Voice-over)

Their needs were meet.


ADOLF HITLER

The Victims?

THE ALMIGHTY: (Voice-over)

Yes, the victims has you would put it. Freedom was given and justice too for men who knew what actions was true. I could have halted your plans but did not want to trouble.


ADOLF HITLER

Stopped me you could have.


THE ALMIGHTY: (Voice-over)

But I wanted to see how far your wrath and need for destruction could take you. I wanted to see if you could surpass my limit? Yet, miracles galore were bidden and from Men’s eyes they are still very much hidden. Things were evil and they could’ve been worse…stopping you short man would have surely been cursed.


ADOLF HITLER

We are victims of our free will. And if you were to take that away from us the future of man will be forsaken.


THE ALMIGHTY: (Voice-over)

My faith is in man….


ADOLF HITLER (cutting him off)

You’re patience is truly a vulture then.


THE ALMIGHTY (Pauses and then speaks)

…And free will…and the only way to let you know is to set Man free in the way he goes.


ADOLF HITLER

But for every man that is evil there is one that is good. And Goodness triumphed as it should have, right?


THE ALMIGHTY: (Voice-over)

Right. Now your Judgement will be rendered to my force your soul has surrendered. So in an instant you are to relive every life that you gave pain and death to.


EXT. CONCENTRATION CAMP-NIGHT
Vignette of Men: standing at attention and wearing nothing but an undershirt. One man exhales out. The gust of the air flows towards the camera.
INT. WHITE ROOM-DAY
THE ALMIGHTY: (Voice over)

You’ll breathe their breath and will not know until their death.


(The camera begins to move in on Adolf’s face.)
THE ALMIGHTY: (Voice over)

Who you are and why you’re there you’ll hold their life quite dear to know their tender moments to live their lives last fear.


INT. CONCENTRATION CAMP-NIGHT
Vignette of a nameless woman: She, along with a dozen others that share her face is led towards two sturdy steel doors.
INT. WHITE ROOM-DAY
THE ALMIGHTY: (Voice over)

As they lived thus you’ll do. And as they died so will you.


EXT. FIELD-DAY
A NAZI OFFICER pushes a wheelbarrow filled with lifeless bodies. He stops at a dug up ditch and throws out the trash.
INT. WHITE ROOM-DAY
THE ALMIGHTY: (Voice over)

Till each life with its strife is incised on your very own soul.


DISSOLVE TO:
INT. SMALL ROOM-DUSK
ADOLF HITLER appears in the room and we see three human beings come from out of the white smoke that is slowly engulfing the room. Everything goes silent as he is suddenly besieged by the beings.
The beings each explode as one touches him after another. The screen fills with the rising explosion of smoke and fire.
INT. WHITE ROOM-DAY
THE ALMIGHTY: (Voice Over)

To burn out your sin is the ultimate goal. You’ll cry their cry. Say their goodbyes, then know as you die, you’re the fuehrer it’s true, but now it’s happening to you.


INT. OLD ROOM-DAY
A man, half in the shadows, and dressed in white, makes sure that his collar around his thin neck is securely fastened. He turns his attention to a MOTHER AND SON at the far side of the room. HE WALKS over to them
THE WOMAN kneels over the man who is dying, BLOOD pouring out from his mouth. But he does not look afraid…this it seems…is not the first time death has looked upon his eyes.
The boy, no more than twelve years old, looks at the man dressed in white worshipfully, keen eyes shining with fear and dread. He reaches out to the man with his fingertips.
DISSOLVE TO:
INT. WHITE ROOM-DAY
THE ALMIGHTY: (Voice over)

Millions of times the sequence will repeat itself, but there is nothing that you can do. And once the sequence ends back to the land of life as a different person but knowing all this former strife. Then apply your free will and do it as you think you should. But I know in the depth of my being that you’ll now work as a force for good. Then Judgment does and mercy too, the soul began it’s sentence true.


ADOLF HITLER:

To the majesty of mercy, truth and equality…In God I must now trust though I might never change through Mercy’s just.


WIPE TO:
Hitler turns to exit the white room with his fate sealed.
EXT. BRAUNU INN, AUSTRIA-DAWN

CLOSE SHOT –– A MAN is walking slowly past the INN. He stares meditatively at the simple dwelling, and then he starts


Walking ahead. But after a few steps he turns around and starts back. He walks past the INN a few yards, turns, and starts back again for the Inn door. He is about to knock upon the door…but he then closes his fist and walks away for good this time.
CAMERA TILTS UP TO THE WINDOW AND ZOOMS IN
INT. ROOM, INN-DAWN
CLOSE SHOT—A man, ALOIS HITLER, looks out the window; his eye catches the stranger outside as he hurries away down the street.
KLARA (Cradling a small child)

What are you doing, Alois?


Alois stops, startled, and looks up.
KLARA

Come and meet our son, no?


Alois raises to his feet, smiles, rubs his chin and walks over to her and the baby.
INT. HITLER’S BUNKER, BERLIN-DAY-SEVERAL DEATHS LATER
CLOSEUP—EVA Braun’s face fills the screen as she cries:
EVA BRAUN

They will reach us this afternoon.


CAMERA PULLS BACK, and we hear the SOUND of ADOLF HITLER who is elsewhere in the bunker. People are crowded into the bunker. Family, friends, and enemies of Hitler. There is a din of conversation about. They know their fate is already pre ordained.
HITLER enters the room. EVA throws her arms around him, which is caught by Hitler who dismisses her. He grabs her arm and leads her to the center of the room. HE opens his palms and reveals a tin vial of cyanide, which he offers to EVA.
EVA’s eyes look upon them. A moment of hesitation and regret stems through her eyes. She glances at Hitler. HE drinks it and she does the same. Seconds later, he brandishes a pistol and shoots himself in the head.
CLOSE SHOT—EVA BRAUN’S FACE. She turns and looks as the other people in the room follow suit. Her eyes become transfixed on the door. She’s waiting for someone to come through the doors.
EVA BRAUN: (Voice-over):

IN the end…there is no more fitting punishment.


SHE PICKS UP HITLER’S GUN, gazes ahead, and pulls the trigger.
FADE TO BLACK.
