(Shot of Cynthia outside at a park.)
Cynthia: So I worked out the code in Alessandra's video. (She looks to her right and shrugs.) I guess this is the place. We used to come here all the time when we were younger. I remember, once time I had an argument with my parents and I told Alessandra to meet me here, and when she did I had my suitcase packed and told her that I was gonna run away from home. She was always smarter than me, and pointed out that I didn't actually have any money to, so we thought about it for a while, and then we remembered that there was this clearing (dog can be seen at the bottom of the frame) and it had all these fallen trees and branches. (she pauses) Sounds stupid, but we decided that we were gonna go live there. We'd build it up and then we'd get food somehow, we weren't really sure. (sighs) We made it for a while and then her parents came to get her, and so did mine. It's one of the last times I saw her. (She appears to get an idea.) Actually, that gives me an idea.
(Song starts playing over montage of the dog being walked. We see a clearing with branches and a square frame. There seems to be something by the frame.)
(Cynthia walks over and picks it up. It is a string knapsack.)
(Shot of Cynthia emptying the knapsack. There are some papers in a sheet protector with a post-it stuck to it.)
The Post-It: Cynthia, Sorry we couldn't stick around. --Paul
(Shot of a bus timetable, a google map, and a printout of the Hymn of One webpage.)
(Shot of Cynthia in a sunset.)
Cynthia: So, I guess this bag's what you wanted me to find, Alessandra. Doesn't really help me know where you are, but... (looks around) You know what, I think I'm just going to sit here for a while, think about when we used to come here... I really miss those times. (smiles slightly) Hopefully we can do it again soon.
(More shots of the dog, and then of ducks, geese and a swan on water. Then of a sidewalk and houses.)
- The waterfowl shown are male and female mallards, canadian geese and some sort of swan.
- The map seems to be of Leamington(?) Spa, Warwickshire, UK.
- According to Google: "The occultist and mountain climber Aleister Crowley was born at 36 Clarendon Square in Royal Leamington Spa, between 11:00pm and midnight on October 12, 1875."
