This is my first narration for a film I'm writing inspired by this piece by Marthalicia Matarrita.
Alpha + Omega
My name is Michael and I am a wolf.
I live with my mom in the middle of a forest. [view Bronx high rises]
I've never seen my father but my mom says he had blue eyes. [view boy looking at husky dog in book]
Every day I go out into the wild.
Now my mom has brought another cub into our den. She says he's my brother but at first I wasn't so sure. [half-brother comes to live with them]
(You know you're not actually a wolf, right?)
Then I saw him run...
He must be my brother.
Sometimes brothers have to fight...
To show who is the alpha wolf...
But they are still a wolf pack.
One day a hunter came upon us. We couldn't run or hide. [school shooting]
But wolves are cunning, and can hunt as a team.
My brother knows it's the alpha's job to defend the pack. [half-brother shot helping students escape]
But even the omega must help... [young brother helps wounded brother to safety]
For the survival of the pack.
My wolf pack is very strong.
