  • [first lines; the film opens with an image of a cell splitting into multiple other cells, then we see a chimp in prehistoric times drinking water from a lake]
  • Lucy: [voice over] Life was given to us a billion years ago. What have we done with it?
  • [we see a fast paced city life]
  • [Taipei, Taiwan – outside a hotel we see Lucy with her boyfriend, Richard]
  • Richard: Lucy, it’s easy as pie. In and out, all done and dusted.
  • Lucy: Then why don’t you do it yourself?
  • Richard: The last thing the guy is expecting is a total tramp turning up to deliver the case. It’ll blow his mind, come on.
  • Lucy: What’s in it?
  • [Richard chuckles]
  • Richard: Sweetheart, don’t get paranoid on me, alright? You trust me, don’t you?
  • [Lucy has a quick flashback to her partying and getting drunk with Richard in a club]
  • Lucy: Richard, I really do like you, but I have to take care of myself right now. I gotta…I don’t know, I gotta concentrate on so many things. I…
  • [she turns to leave but Richard grabs her arm]
  • Richard: Hey! Hey! What are you doing?
  • Lucy: I’m going home because I have exams on Monday, I have to shower and I have to study. Okay?
  • Richard: You know what, the other day I was in this museum, and you know what I found out?
  • Lucy: What?
  • Richard: The first ever woman was named Lucy.
  • [we see a wax museum model of a prehistoric female chimp in a glass cage]
  • Lucy: Is that supposed to make me feel better?
  • Richard: Yeah. No.
  • Lucy: I’ll call you. Okay?
  • [she pats his shoulder and turns to leave, but he stops her again]
  • Richard: Okay. Okay. Okay. I’ll be honest with you, I can’t deliver the case myself. I had a little falling out with the guy, it’s nothing major, but if it’s you, problem solved.
  • [pointing to the hotel]
  • Richard: You walk in there, you go up to the reception, you ask for Mr. Jang to come down. He comes down, he takes the case, you’ll flash him your prettiest smile and bounce.
  • [we quickly see a mouse going up to a mouse trap with cheese in it]
  • Richard: Look, you can even see the reception from here. Come on.
  • Lucy: What’s in the case?
  • Richard: I don’t know, it’s just some paperwork.
  • Lucy: Yeah, well let’s see it then.
  • Richard: It’s locked, and no one but Mr. Jang has the code. I’m just the delivery boy.
  • Lucy: Do you get paid to do this?
  • Richard: Yeah, kind of.
  • Lucy: Like, how much?
  • [Richard laughs]
  • Richard: Okay, we are negotiating now or…?
  • Lucy: No, no. How much do you get paid? I want to know, how much?
  • Richard: A thousand dollars.
  • Lucy: You get paid a thousand dollars for delivering paperwork, really?
  • Richard: I don’t know, it takes me ten minutes and they pay me a grand and the rest is none of my business.
  • Lucy: Well, it’s not my business either, I’ll tell you now.
  • [she turns to leave but Richard grabs her arm to stop her]
  • Richard: Listen!
  • Lucy: What?
  • Richard: We split it down the middle, hm? That’s five hundred for you and five hundred for me.
  • Lucy: Richard, I will call you.
  • Richard: Listen, it’s the third time this week I’m showing up at the same hotel with the same cowboy hat.
  • Lucy: Well…
  • [she takes off his hat and puts it on her head]
  • Lucy: Problem solved. Go, go. I’ll wait for you, go. I’ll wait.
  • Richard: Lucy, honey, I…I’ve done this a dozen times. It’s paperwork. It’s probably some designs so they can copy them, that’s how it works in this country. Even my Stetson was made here, look.
  • [he takes off the hat from Lucy’s head and show her the inside]
  • Richard: It says so on the label, “Made in Taiwan.”
  • [Lucy puts his hat back on his head]
  • Lucy: So long, Cowboy, with the fake Stetson.
  • [she turns to leave and he grabs her hand to stop her]
  • Richard: Baby, please.
  • Lucy: Richard, I gotta go.
  • [suddenly he handcuffs Lucy’s wrist to the handle of the briefcase]
  • Lucy: What the hell are you doing?
  • Richard: I’m sorry.
  • Lucy: What the hell are you doing?
  • [Richard starts backing away from her]
  • Richard: I’m so sorry, I really need your help.
  • Lucy: No. Stop it! Take this off me, right now!
  • Richard: I can’t.
  • Lucy: Take this off me, right now!
  • Richard: I can’t, Mr. Jang’s the only one who has the key. All you have to do is go into the hotel and ask for him at the reception.
  • Lucy: No, take it off me right now!
  • Richard: I’m so sorry, I really have no choice. The sooner you go in, the sooner you’ll be back out.
  • Lucy: I can’t believe you did this to me.
  • Richard: I’ll be right here, you have my word.
  • Lucy: You’re word isn’t worth shit!
  • Richard: It’s worth five hundred bucks, upfront.
  • [he takes out the cash and stuffs it into her top]
  • Lucy: You’re an asshole.
  • Richard: And you’re wonderful.
  • [Lucy scoffs at him and then walks towards the hotel]
  • [Lucy walks nervously into the hotel lobby and walks over the reception]
  • The Receptionist: Miss, may I help you?
  • Lucy: Uh…yes. I’m here for, uh…Mr. Jang.
  • The Receptionist: Yes. Um…
  • [as the receptionist starts to make the call we see quick image of a gazelle getting preyed upon by a cheetah]
  • The Receptionist: Who should I say is here?
  • [we see a man standing nearby watching Lucy with suspicion]
  • Lucy: Richard. I’m no…Richard sent…Richard sent me.
  • [the receptionist makes the call]
  • The Receptionist: What’s your name?
  • Lucy: No, Richard. Richard’s uh…he’s just looking for a place to park.
  • [the receptionist talks into the phone again, Lucy sees Richard outside waiting for her]
  • The Receptionist: Mr. Jang still wants to know your name.
  • [we see quick image of the cheetah making its move, then back to Lucy looking nervous]
  • Lucy: Lucy.
  • The Receptionist: Lucy what?
  • Lucy: Ju…just Lucy. If he could…if he could be quick, cause I have uh…I have…I have to…
  • The Receptionist: Just a second, while I tell him.
  • [the receptionist talks into the phone again, at the same time Lucy looks over to Richard who indicates she should calm down, gives her the thumbs up and smiles]
  • [after ending his call to Jang]
  • The Receptionist: Mr. Jang is on his way. Stay right here.
  • Lucy: Can I sit?
  • The Receptionist: Mr. Jang said you need to stay right here. I think it’s better if you stay right here.
  • [they are interrupted by the reception phone ringing]
  • The Receptionist: Excuse me.
  • [he answers the call]
  • The Receptionist: Regent Hotel.
  • [we see image of the cheetah heading towards its prey, then back to Lucy who sees a group of thugs in suits heading towards her, at the same time we see two cheetahs heading towards the gazelle, Lucy looks over to Richard outside when he is suddenly shot and killed]
  • Lucy: No!
  • [we see the cheetah chasing after the gazelle, at the same time the thugs grab hold of Lucy, place a wad of cash on the reception desk for the receptionist, and she’s dragged into the elevator]
  • Lucy: Please, please, please.
  • [we see the cheetah catching the gazelle, killing it and carrying the body in its mouth]
  • [Lucy, who’s crying, is being dragged along the corridor by the thugs]
  • Lucy: Please, don’t. I don’t know anything. I don’t know anything. Please. Please.
  • [she’s taken into Jang’s room, she sees bloodied corpses on the floor and starts to vomit, then two thugs make her sit in a chair]
  • Lucy: Please.
  • [one of the thugs offers her a napkin to wipe her mouth, then Jang comes out with his hands covered in blood, one of the thugs pours bottled water onto Jang’s hands to wash off the blood]
  • Lucy: Do you speak English?
  • [she speaks in Spanish asking them if Jang speaks Spanish, they thug explains to Jang in Chinese what’s happened and Lucy hears her name being spoken]
  • Lucy: Lucy. Yes, I’m Lucy. Please, there’s just been a terrible mistake. I’m just supposed to deliver this case. If you lost the key, you don’t have to chop off my hand, you can just cut the chain, okay?
  • [Jang wipes his hand with towel then looks at Lucy, who’s in tears]
  • Lucy: Please. I’m begging you, please.
  • [Jang instructs two of his thugs to grab Lucy]
  • Lucy: No. No. No! No! No!
  • [Lucy is made to sit on the couch]
  • Lucy: No! Please! Please!
  • [Jang takes the seat opposite Lucy, picks up the phone to make a call asking them to translate for Lucy and then puts the phone on speaker so Lucy can hear]
  • Phone Voice Royal Suite: Hello, Miss. I speak English, I translate for Mr. Jang.
  • [Lucy continues to weep before replying]
  • Lucy: Please tell him that I haven’t done anything. I don’t know anything, it’s all just a big mistake, okay? Please. Please tell him that.
  • Phone Voice Royal Suite: Yes. Okay, okay. Hold on.
  • [the man explains this to Jang who then gives his reply and the man translates for Lucy]
  • Phone Voice Royal Suite: Mr. Jang wants to know what’s in the case?
  • Lucy: No, I don’t know what’s in the case. Do you speak English, or don’t you speak English?
  • Phone Voice Royal Suite: Yes, I do. I studied one year in International High School in New York.
  • Lucy: Okay, Richard gave me the case to give to you, that’s all I know. Okay, please tell him that.
  • [the man translates for Jang who then writes down number 140 on a piece of paper, which is the code to open the briefcase, then steps into the next room]
  • [as Jang goes to the next room his men arm themselves with guns and shields]
  • Lucy: He gave me a paper with numbers on it. I don’t…what is this?
  • Phone Voice Royal Suite: It’s the code to open the case
  • [Lucy looks across at Jang’s men standing opposite her with their shields]
  • Lucy: What’s really in here?
  • Phone Voice Royal Suite: Nothing dangerous.
  • Lucy: So why won’t he open it himself?
  • [the man on the phone speaks in Chinese as Jang listens from the other room and replies, the man on the phone translates for Lucy]
  • Phone Voice Royal Suite: He doesn’t trust Mr. Richard.
  • Lucy: Well, I don’t trust Richard either. I only dated him for a week.
  • [again the man on the phone explains this to Jang who gets frustrated and shouts, his men hold up their guns to Lucy threateningly]
  • Lucy: Okay, okay. Okay.
  • Phone Voice Royal Suite: Mr. Jang insists that you open the case.
  • Lucy: Okay, okay.
  • [Lucy starts weeping again]
  • Lucy: Please, God, help me.
  • [Lucy slowly places the case on the table, Jang, looking impatient, says something in Chinese and the man on the phone translates]
  • Phone Voice Royal Suite: He wants you to hurry up, Mr. Jang has other things to do.
  • [Lucy slowly puts the code in and opens the briefcase, she stares at the contents of the case, Jang talks to the man on the phone who then translate for Lucy again]
  • Phone Voice Royal Suite: Can you describe the contents of the case?
  • Lucy: It’s…it’s four plastic pouches filled with a blue powder, like a…maybe a purple powder. I don’t know, looks gross.
  • Phone Voice Royal Suite: Mr. Jan wants to offer you a job.
  • Lucy: A job?
  • [Jang nods his head, Lucy then starts crying in terror]
  • Lucy: I don’t want a job!
  • [suddenly one of Jang’s men smacks her, then the screen cuts to back with 1% sign shown]
  • [Professor Samuel Norman is giving a lecture to a large classroom]
  • Professor Norman: If life starts approximately a billion years ago we will have to wait four hundred thousand years to see the aberration of the first nerve cells. This is where life as we know it begins. Brain’s in formation of only a few milligrams, it’s not possible to determine any sign of intelligence yet, it acts more as a reflex. One neuron and you’re alive, two neurons you’re moving. And with movement interesting things begin to happen.
  • [we see different shots of animal life on earth]
  • Professor Norman: Animal life on earth goes back millions of years, yet most species only use three to five percent of its cerebral capacity. But it isn’t until we reached human beings at the top of the animal chain that we finally see a species use more of its cerebral capacity.
  • [the screen flashes 10% and then cuts to prehistoric man trying to light a fire by rubbing two rocks together]
  • Professor Norman: Ten percent may not like seem much, but it’s a lot if you look at all we’ve done with it.
  • [we see footage of all that man has achieved, including flying planes, going to the moon, building modern cities, paintings, organized religions and finally man discovering fire]
  • Professor Norman: Now let’s discuss a special case. The only living being that uses its brain better than us; the dolphin. It is estimated that this incredible animal uses up to twenty percent of its cerebral capacity. In particular, this allows it to have an echo location system that is more efficient than any Sonar invented by mankind. But the dolphin did not invent the Sonar, it developed it naturally. And this is the crucial part of our philosophical reflection we have today. Can we therefore conclude that humans are concerned more with having than being?
  • [Lucy wakes up in a hotel room and notices a bloodied bandage around her stomach, Jang’s men come in, one of them tells her to get dressed in Chinese and throw her some clothes, she’s taken to Jang]
  • Mr. Jang: Lucy.
  • Lucy: What did you do to my stomach?
  • [just then a British man known as “The Limey” walks into the room]
  • The Limey: Nothing, just a little horizontal slit. It’s very well done, and uh…and oh, you’ll find within a month the scar is practically invisible too. You’ll be able to show your tummy off on the beach next summer.
  • Lucy: I don’t care about the scar.
  • The Limey: Is it uh…is it why we opened you up, yep? Rest assured we didn’t harvest your organs or anything. Uh…we…we merely slipped a little package into your lower tummy. It’s uh…it’s a new drug that kids in Europe are gonna love, believe me.
  • [Lucy looks horrified]
  • Lucy: What is it?
  • The Limey: Well, the scientific term is CPH4, which is not very sexy from a sales point of view. So, um…we’re still working on something with a bit more pop. Any suggestions?
  • [Lucy is speechless when they’re interrupted by Jang’s men bringing in three men]
  • The Limey: Ah. Excuse me.
  • [to the three men]
  • The Limey: Welcome. Welcome, come on in. Lovely.
  • [Jang’s men pull the men along into the room when one of them stumbles]
  • The Limey: Oops.
  • [the three stand next to Lucy, all three have bandages across their stomachs also]
  • The Limey: Splendid. Splendid. Whoop. Ha-ha! Marvelous! Lovely, lovely.
  • [the Limey kisses a man dressed in a suit on the cheeks in greeting]
  • The Limey: How are you?
  • Jang’s Man: Very good, mate.
  • The Limey: Okay.
  • [to Lucy and the three men]
  • The Limey: Right, um…first of all, many thanks for taking part in this enterprise. Which I’m sure will go off flawlessly. Uh…these lovely passport and tickets will enable you to return home in the next twenty-four hours. Now upon arrival you will be taken in hand by our people so that um…we might recover our merchandise, and you might rediscover the freedom, which you so richly deserve. I’m sure there’s no need to remind you that for any of those who uh…may be tempted to warn or turn themselves in to the authorities, we have the names and addresses of the families of every one of you, down to the distant cousins.
  • [Jang offers Lucy a drink and Lucy reluctantly drinks it]
  • The Limey: So, uh…we rely therefore on your complete discretion. Good. Anyway, uh… gentlemen, madam, allow me to be the first to wish you…
  • [he snaps his fingers]
  • The Limey: …bon voyage.
  • [the three men are hooded and led away by Jang’s men, one nearly knocks into the Limey]
  • The Limey: Oops. Lovely.
  • Lucy: You’re gonna sell this?
  • The Limey: I’m afraid it’s our business model.
  • [a hood is placed over Lucy’s head]
  • [Norman continues his lecture]
  • Professor Norman: For primitive beings like us, life seems to have only one single purpose: gaining time. And it is going through time, seems to be also the only real purpose of each of the cell in our bodies. To achieve that end, the mass of the cells that make up earthworms and human beings, has only two solutions. Be immortal, or to reproduce. If its habitat is not sufficiently favorable or nurturing…
  • [we’re shown footage of the devastation caused by natural earth disasters, like hurricanes, tsunami’s and volcano eruptions]
  • Professor Norman: …the cell will chose immortality. In other words, self-sufficiency and self-management. On the other hand, if the habitat is favorable…
  • [we’re shown footage of earth’s natural beauty like lakes, jungles and oceans]
  • Professor Norman: …they will choose to reproduce.
  • [we’re shown footage of different animals, including humans having intercourse]
  • Professor Norman: That way, when they die, they hand down essential information and knowledge to the next cell, which hands it down to the next cell and so on.
  • [we’re shown different animals and humans giving birth to their babies]
  • Professor Norman: Thus, knowledge and learning are handed down, through time.
  • [talking to herself from under her hood]
  • Lucy: Okay, okay. Keep calm. You just have to wait, just pray for time. You have time to think it through on the plane. Just take the flight. Take the fight and get out of here. Okay, that’s the main thing right now. Just save time. Don’t try anything. Keep your cool. You’re alive. You’re alive. You’re alive. That’s all that matters. Just…wait. Save time. Save time.
  • [suddenly the hood is taken off her head, Lucy finds herself in a room being chained to the wall by two thugs, one of the thugs starts putting his hand down her top and Lucy yanks herself away from his hand]
  • Lucy: I’m not in the mood.
  • [the thug suddenly punches her, then starts kicking her in the stomach, the other thug pushes the other thug away and they leave and lock her in, Lucy looks down and finds her stomach wound has opened, the drug powder starts leaking into her system, her eyes turn blue, she starts thrashing around the room, even going up to the ceiling, then as she goes to smash into the wall the screen flashes 20%]
  • [Norman continues his lecture]
  • Professor Norman: Let’s imagine for a few moments what our life would be like if we could access like, let’s say, twenty percent of our brain’s capacity. This first stage would give us access to and control over our own body.
  • Male Student #1: Sir?
  • Professor Norman: Yes?
  • Male Student #1: Have it been proven scientifically?
  • Professor Norman: Well, for the moment, it’s just hypothesis, I confess. But if you think about it, it’s troubling to realize that the Greeks, Egyptians and the Indians had notion of cells centuries before the invention of the microscope. And what to say about Darwin, whom everybody took for a fool when he put forth his Theory of Evolution. It’s up to us to push the rules and laws, and go from evolution to revolution.
  • [there’s a small laughter from the classroom audience]
  • Professor Norman: One hundred billion neurons per human of which only fifteen percent are activated. There are more connections in the human body than there are stars in the galaxy. We possess a gigantic network of information to which we have almost no access.
  • Female Student: Sir?
  • Professor Norman: Yes?
  • Female Student: And what would be the next stage?
  • Professor Norman: Well, the next stage would probably be control of other people. But for that, we would need to access at least forty percent of our brain’s capacity. After control of ourselves and others, would come control of matter. But now we’re entering into the realm of science fiction and we don’t know any more than the dog who watches the moon.
  • Male Student #2: Excuse me, sir?
  • Professor Norman: Yes.
  • Male Student #2: But, what would happen if for some reason we ignore, somebody unlocked one hundred percent of the cerebral capacity?
  • Professor Norman: One hundred percent?
  • Male Student #2: Yes.
  • Professor Norman: I have no idea.
  • [the taxi driver pulls outside the Tri-Service General Hospital Tingjhou Branch]
  • Taxi Driver #2: Hospital.
  • Lucy: Wait for me.
  • [Lucy takes her gun, she enters the hospital and finds she is able to translate the Chinese signs into English, she walks into an operating theater where the doctors are operating and looks at the patient’s x-ray scans]
  • Doctor: Miss, hello?
  • [Lucy ignores him and continues to look at the scans]
  • Doctor: Hey, Miss!
  • Lucy: I need help, it’s urgent.
  • Doctor: You cannot be in here, we are operating. Please, get out.
  • [Lucy turns, points her gun at the patient on the operating table, shoots him and throws him off the table]
  • Lucy: You wouldn’t have been able to save him anyway. The tumor had already invaded the cortex on the right side of his spine.
  • [she puts on the operating gown and lies on the operating table pointing her gun at the doctors]
  • Lucy: Somebody put a bag of drugs in me, I need you to remove it. It’s leaking.
  • [one of the nurses faints]
  • Lucy: Do it now.
  • Doctor: Right. I’ll just administer a local anesthetic.
  • Lucy: Don’t bother.
  • Doctor: Right. Uh…okay. Calm down, please. Put the gun down.
  • [he lowers her gun]
  • Doctor: I’m going to examine, okay?
  • [as the doctor starts to look at her stomach wound Lucy takes out her phone]
  • Lucy: Do you mind?
  • Doctor: No.
  • [Lucy calls her mother]
  • Lucy’s Mother: Hello?
  • Lucy: Mom.
  • Lucy’s Mother: Hey, Lucy. Baby, it’s great to hear from you. But what time is it over there?
  • Lucy: I don’t know, it’s night.
  • Lucy’s Mother: old on a sec, let me get rid of the other line.
  • [the doctor whispers to her]
  • Doctor: I’m going to have to go inside.
  • [Lucy nods her head and the doctor gets ready to operate on her]
  • Lucy’s Mother: I’m back. You’re not partying too much, are you? You promised me you’d look after yourself.
  • Lucy: I’m trying to, Mom. I am trying to.
  • Lucy’s Mother: Well, thanks for calling out of the blue like this. Your father is gonna be sad he missed you. He isn’t home from the gym yet. Usually you call us in the morning.
  • Lucy: Mom?
  • Lucy’s Mother: Yes.
  • Lucy: I feel everything.
  • Lucy’s Mother: What do you mean, sweetie?
  • Lucy: Space. The air. The vibrations. The people. I can feel the gravity. I can feel the rotation of the earth. The heat leaving my body. The blood in my veins. I can feel my brain. The deepest parts of my memory.
  • Lucy’s Mother: Sweetie, we have a bad connection. I can’t hear you so well. What did you say about memory?
  • Lucy: The pain in my mouth when I had braces. I…I can remember the feeling of your hand on my forehead when I ran a fever. I remember stroking the cat, it was so soft.
  • Lucy’s Mother: The cat? What cat, honey?
  • Lucy: That Siamese with blue eyes and a broken tail.
  • Lucy’s Mother: Sweetie, you can’t possibly remember that. You were barely a year old.
  • Lucy: I remember the taste of your milk in my mouth. The room, the liquid.
  • Lucy’s Mother: Sweetie, what are you talking about?
  • Lucy: I just want to tell you that I love you, mom, and dad.
  • Lucy’s Mother: Sweetie.
  • Lucy: And I want to thank you for the thousand kisses that I can still feel on my face. I love you, Mom.
  • Lucy’s Mother: I love you too, sweetie. More than anything in the world.
  • [at the same time the doctor pulls out the bag of drug from her stomach and Lucy ends the call to her mother]
  • [referring to the bag of drugs the doctor has pulled out of her stomach]
  • Lucy: How much is left?
  • Doctor: Five hundred grams.
  • Lucy: And how long will it take my body to eliminate the rest of it?
  • Doctor: To answer that, I need to know what it is. May I?
  • Lucy: Go ahead.
  • [the doctor starts to stitch her up]
  • Lucy: CPH4.
  • [the doctor gives her a surprised look]
  • Lucy: Tell me about it.
  • Doctor: Pregnant women manufacture CPH4 in the sixth week of pregnancy, in tiny quantities. For a baby, it packs the power of an atomic bomb. It’s what gives the fetus the necessary energy to form all the bones in its body. I’d heard that they tried to make a synthetic version of it. Didn’t realize that they’d succeeded. If it really is CPH4, in this quantity, I’m amazed you’re still alive.
  • Lucy: Not for long.
  • [Lucy goes to the hotel Jang is staying at, she quickly kills his guards, shoos his tattoo artist away as he is in the middle of getting a tattoo and a facial, she then sticks two knives in Jang’s hands]
  • Lucy: Learning is always a painful process. Like when you’re little and your bones are growing and you ache all over. Do you believe I can remember the sound of my own bones growing? Like this grinding under the skin. Everything is different now, like sounds are music that I can understand. Like fluids.
  • [Jang shakes with pain from the knives in hands as he watches and listens to Lucy]
  • Lucy: It’s funny, I used to be so concerned with who I was and what I wanted to be and, now that I have access to the furthest reaches of my brain, I see things clearly and realize that what makes us, it’s primitive. They’re all obstacles. Does that make any sense? Like this pain you’re experiencing, it’s blocking you from understanding. All you know now is pain, that’s all you know, pain. Where are the others? The others carrying the drugs, I need the rest of it. For medicinal purposes.
  • [Jang doesn’t reply]
  • [Lucy places her thumbs on Jang’s forehead and uses her newfound powers to tap into his brain and sees the destination of the other drug mules on their

plane tickets]

  • Lucy: Berlin. Paris. Rome.
  • [she takes her thumbs away from Jang’s forehead]
  • Lucy: Thank you for sharing.
  • [Lucy rises and leaves, Jang lets out a pained scream]
  • [Norman arrives at his hotel in Paris]
  • The Receptionist: Oh. Evening, Professor..
  • Professor Norman: Bonsoir, Albert.
  • [the receptionist gives Norman the key to his room]
  • The Receptionist: Do we have you for dinner tonight?
  • Professor Norman: I’m afraid so, I am exhausted.
  • The Receptionist: Have a good rest.
  • Professor Norman: Thank you.
  • [Norman turns and walks towards his room]
  • [Lucy bangs on her apartment door, her roommate, Caroline opens the door looking half asleep]
  • Caroline: You scared the shit out of me when you knock like some nut bar. I missed you.
  • [Caroline hugs Lucy]
  • Lucy: Me too.
  • [as Lucy hugs Caroline she feels all of Caroline’s cells before she moves away]
  • Caroline: Did you lose your key or something?
  • Lucy: Yeah. Can I borrow your laptop?
  • [Lucy sits at the table and starts using the laptop]
  • Caroline: Yeah, of course. So, I spent all yesterday in auditions, which was awesome. So they just had me standing around all day, cause they don’t give a shit about your time, gabbing away in Chinese. Who understands Chinese? I don’t understand Chinese. And then uh…they say they’re always gonna call, and they never do, cause they don’t even take your phone number, you know? Except this one guy, but he, uh…he’s not Chinese. He works at the agency and he’s cute. Oh, my God. He’s cute. And they’re like, they’re cute and they kind of know it kind of way, like he had this thing. Oh, my God. His ass. His…ooph. Don’t even get me started on that. And you are never gonna guess where he took me.
  • [Caroline hesitates and then Lucy, knowing her answer, replies at the same time]
  • Lucy, Caroline: Four Seasons, Royal Suite. And we made love all night.
  • [Caroline smiles]
  • Caroline: I’m sorry, I’m talking about myself. What’s up? How’s Richard?
  • Lucy: He’s dead.
  • Caroline: You guys are crazy. I’m gonna take a shower.
  • [Caroline goes into the bathroom as Lucy continues to use her laptop]
  • [after finding all of Norman’s research and reading them in a matter of minutes, Lucy calls Norman]
  • Professor Norman: Yes?
  • Lucy: Professor Norman, my name is Lucy. I just read all your research on the human brain. We need to meet.
  • [Norman laughs]
  • Professor Norman: All of my research? Well, I’m very flattered, young lady, but I find that hard to believe. I must have written no less than…
  • Lucy: Six thousand seven hundred thirty four pages. I can recite them all to you by heart, if you wish.
  • [Norman hesitates, still not believing her]
  • Professor Norman: Are you one of Emily’s friends? This sounds like one of her silly jokes. Is she there with you?
  • [suddenly Norman’s TV screen comes on showing Lucy sat in her apartment]
  • Lucy: No, I’m on my own.
  • Professor Norman: Who are you?
  • Lucy: I just told you.
  • Professor Norman: Uh…Lucy, right? Yes. Sorry.
  • Lucy: I read your theory on the use of the brain’s capacity. It’s a little rudimentary but you’re on the right track.
  • Professor Norman: Thank you.
  • Lucy: Professor, my cells are reproducing at a phenomenal speed. Several million per second. And I’m having trouble precisely evaluating the time of my death but I doubt I’ll last more than twenty-four hours.
  • Professor Norman: What are you talking about?
  • Lucy: What I’m saying is that your theory is not a theory. I absorbed a large quantity of synthetic CPH4 that will allow me to use a hundred percent of my cerebral capacity. Right now, I’m at twenty-eight percent. And what you wrote is true, once the brain reaches twenty percent it opens up and expands the rest, there are no more obstacles. They fall away like dominoes. I’m colonizing my own brain.
  • [Norman looks visibly dumbstruck]
  • Professor Norman: Uh, well, I…I don’t know what to say. It’s true, I…I’ve been working on this theory for over twenty years. But it’s…it’s only…only ever been hypothesis and research ideas. I never thought anyone would…
  • [he stares at Lucy on the TV monitor]
  • Professor Norman: You can control your own metabolism?
  • Lucy: Yes, and I can start to control other peoples’ bodies. Also, I can control magnetic and electric waves. Um…not all of them, just the most basic. Television.
  • [she appears on Norman’s laptop]
  • Lucy: Telephone.
  • [Norman’s cell phone starts ringing]
  • Lucy: Radio.
  • [the radio turns on, Norman looks around him in shock]
  • Lucy: That’s amazing. I don’t feel pain. Fear. Desire. It’s like all things that make us human are fading away. It’s like the less human I feel all this knowledge about everything; quantum physics, applied mathematics, the infinite capacity of a cell’s nucleus. They’re all exploding inside my brain, all these knowledge. I don’t know what to do with it.
  • Professor Norman: If you’re asking me what to do…?
  • [Norman shakes his head]
  • Professor Norman: You know…if you think about the very nature of life. I mean, from the very beginning. The development of the first cell divided into two cells. This whole purpose of life has been to pass on what was learned. There is no higher purpose. So, if you’re asking me what to do with all this knowledge you’re accumulating, I’d say, pass it on. Just like any simple cell going through time.
  • Lucy: Time. Yes, of course. I’ll be at your door in twelve hours.
  • [Lucy switches the TV monitor off]
  • [Lucy prints out something as she prepares to leave]
  • Caroline: Are you leaving?
  • Lucy: Yes.
  • [Lucy takes the printed piece of paper and gives it to Caroline]
  • Caroline: What is this?
  • Lucy: A prescription.
  • Caroline: Since when did you start writing in Chinese?
  • Lucy: Since an hour ago.
  • Caroline: Luce, I don’t understand any of this.
  • Lucy: Your kidneys aren’t functioning efficiently, your liver’s failing you. You need to make some lifestyle changes. Take this medication, work out, eat organic. You’ll be okay.
  • [Caroline stares at her, then Lucy turns and leaves]
  • [we see news reports from Chinese news stations, about Lucy shooting the patient]
  • Chinese News Reporter #1: Last night at 11 pm, a woman shot a patient dead.
  • Chinese News Reporter #2: It happened at Tri-Service Hospital.
  • Chinese News Reporter #3: The suspect is 25, blonde, medium height.
  • [footage of Lucy entering the hospital is shown]
  • Chinese News Reporter #3: Police are hunting nationwide. She is armed and dangerous.
  • [we see Lucy making her way through the airport, she changes her hair style and color to long and brunette and puts on her sunglasses, she then calls the French police, at the station Pierre Del Rio’s phone rings and he answers it]
  • Pierre Del Rio: De Rio.
  • French Cop: [subtitled] I just got a weird call from an American in Taiwan. A young woman calling to tip us off on a big drugs ring.
  • Pierre Del Rio: [subtitled] I’ll take it.
  • French Cop: [subtitled] I’ll tape you.
  • [on the phone to Lucy]
  • Pierre Del Rio: Hello?
  • Lucy: Yes, I have important information about a group drug traffickers. I need to speak to someone in position of authority.
  • Pierre Del Rio: Aha. You’re very lucky there is no one with more authority in this office than me. But, let’s start at the beginning. What is your name?
  • Lucy: Listen up, Pierre Del Rio. Get off your desk, sit in your chair, pick up the red pen to the left of you and take down everything I say.
  • [Del Rio looks down and sees the red pen to his left on the desk]
  • Lucy: There are no cameras, hurry up. I have no time to waste.
  • [the screen then flashes 30%]
  • [Del Rio sits in his chair as he continues his conversation with Lucy]
  • Pierre Del Rio: Go ahead.
  • Lucy: I’m gonna be sending you the details of three people about to arrive in Europe. Each one is carrying a kilo of drugs. I need you to arrest them and collect the substance, I’ll need it for later.
  • Pierre Del Rio: What form are these drugs in? Bars? Capsules?
  • Lucy: Powder, hidden in plastic pouches inside their intestines.
  • Pierre Del Rio: Excuse me?
  • Lucy: Be sure to be careful when you remove them, the product is very powerful.
  • [as Lucy is going through passport check at the airport the security guard dog senses something and goes towards her, but Lucy looks at the dog and uses her power to make the dog walk back]
  • Lucy: Believe me.
  • [Lucy sends the pictures of the three drug mules to Del Rio’s computer]
  • Lucy: Got it?
  • Pierre Del Rio: Yeah.
  • Lucy: Good. I’m counting on you.
  • [Lucy ends the call]
  • French Cop: [in French] Everything good?
  • [Del Rio nods his head]
  • [we see the other three drug mules as they arrive at their respective destinations and going through passport check, first it’s in Berlin, Germany; to the airport guard]
  • Berlin Custom Officer: [subtitled] That’s him. Pick him up.
  • [he holds up the passport picture of the German drug mule and the guards surround him]
  • Airport Guard: [subtitled] Come with me, please.
  • [in Paris, France the French drug mule is apprehended by Del Rio and his men at the airport]
  • Pierre Del Rio: [subtitled] Sir, are you American? Would you come with me?
  • [in Rome, Italy as the Italian drug mule is waiting in the customs line]
  • Italian Customs Officer: [subtitled] Welcome, to Italy.
  • [the drug mule approaches the customs officer when he is apprehended by the police]
  • Italian Cop: [subtitled] Good morning, sir. Please follow me.
  • Italian Mule: [subtitled] Yes, of course.
  • [as the drug mule goes to follow them he suddenly turns and makes a run for it]
  • Italian Cop: [subtitled] Go after him.
  • [the drug mule is quickly caught]
  • [in Paris as Del Rio enters his office he gets a call from the Italian police]
  • Pierre Del Rio: Del Rio.
  • Marco Brezzi: Captain Marco Brezzi.
  • Pierre Del Rio: Thanks for calling me back.
  • Marco Brezzi: We got the third guy.
  • Pierre Del Rio: Thanks very much. I’ll send you the paperwork for the transfer.
  • Marco Brezzi: Bye.
  • [Del Rio ends the call and turns to his men]
  • Pierre Del Rio: [subtitled] Okay, we got all three.
  • [they all get ready to leave]
  • [back with Lucy who is on the plane making her way to Paris]
  • Flight Attendant: [voice] Ladies and gentlemen, we are now beginning our descent to Paris, Charles de Gaulle.
  • [we see Lucy on two laptops continuing her research on the brain, typing at rapid-fire pace]
  • Flight Attendant #1: Miss, I’ll have to ask you to put away your computers now.
  • Lucy: You should wipe your nose.
  • Flight Attendant #1: Excuse me?
  • Lucy: May I have a glass of champagne?
  • [suddenly the flight attendant’s nose starts to bleed]
  • Flight Attendant #1: Um…yes, of course.\
  • [the flight attendant leaves holding her head up to stop the flow of blood, then Lucy finishes her research and turns off her laptops]
  • Cabin Manager: Miss, your champagne.
  • Lucy: Thank you.
  • [Lucy takes the glass of champagne]
  • Cabin Manager: I’m very sorry, but uh…you really need to close your table now.
  • Lucy: Sure.
  • [Lucy then looks at the flight attendant and uses her powers to make him walk away, she then holds her champagne glass up to toast]
  • Lucy: To knowledge.
  • [we see 40% flash on the screen, then as Lucy drinks some of her champagne she discovers a tooth in her glass]
  • [we see flashback to when Norman was giving his lecture]
  • Professor Norman: If the habitat is not sufficiently favorable or nurturing…
  • [back to Lucy who after losing one teeth starts to cough and suddenly she spits up three more teeth]
  • Professor Norman: …the cell will choose immortality.
  • [then Lucy’s skin starts to disintegrate]
  • Professor Norman: In other words, self-sufficiency and self-management.
  • [the other passengers and flight attendants begin to notice Lucy as she’s disintegrating, Lucy runs to the bathroom]
  • Cabin Manager: Miss. You have to remain seated. Please…
  • [as the flight attendant goes to stop Lucy entering the bathroom she uses her power to throw him aside, once inside her fingers start to disappear]
  • Cabin Manager: Miss! Miss! Open the door. You really have to go back to your seat. Miss! We’re gonna land soon Miss, open the door!
  • [Lucy looks in the mirror and watches in horror as her face starts to disintegrate]
  • Cabin Manager: Miss, please say something. Are you okay? Miss? Miss! Miss, please open the door!
  • [Lucy pulls out the rest of the CPH4 from her bag and snorts it; to the other flight attendant]
  • Cabin Manager: Do something! Help me!
  • [Lucy looks in the mirror and her face starts to restore]
  • Cabin Manager: Miss, open the door!
  • [as Lucy’s body starts to restore suddenly a flash of light bolts out from her body]
  • Cabin Manager: Miss, are you okay? Say something!
  • [in Paris, Del Rio looks at Lucy’s passport, one of his men hands him the drug they got from Lucy]
  • Pierre Del Rio: [subtitled] With a scar on her lower abdomen?
  • Airport Doctor: [subtitled] Yeah, we got it out of her.
  • Pierre Del Rio: [subtitled] How is she?
  • Airport Doctor: [subtitled] Fine, she’s doing fine. With the shot I gave her, she should wake up in a day.
  • [as Lucy’s eyes open we see 50% flash on the screen, Lucy then wakes up in the airport hospital room, sits up and finds her arm chained to the bed, the nurse walks into the room and quickly leaves to raise the alarm]
  • Airport Nurse: [subtitled] Doctor, she’s awake.
  • Airport Doctor: [subtitled] Are you sure?
  • Airport Nurse: [subtitled] Yes, she’s sitting on the bed.
  • [Del Rio and the doctor quickly head towards Lucy’s room but see Lucy walk out of the room]
  • Airport Doctor: [subtitled] That’s her.
  • Pierre Del Rio: [subtitled] You didn’t restrain her?
  • Airport Doctor: [subtitled] Sure, we did!
  • [Del Rio gets his gun out as he approaches Lucy]
  • Pierre Del Rio: Miss!
  • [he points his gun at Lucy along with the other policemen]
  • Pierre Del Rio: Don’t move.
  • Lucy: I need to talk to you alone.
  • Pierre Del Rio: And I need you to put your hands up, please.
  • [with a wave of her fingers, Lucy put everyone around her to pass out, except for Del Rio, she walks slowly towards him and to his shock Lucy makes the bullets in his gun drop to the floor]
  • Lucy: Did you get the packets?
  • Pierre Del Rio: Yes.
  • Lucy: Where are they?
  • Pierre Del Rio: They’re safe. Here, in Paris.
  • Lucy: They’ll be safer in my hands.
  • [Lucy turns and walks off and Del Rio follows her]
  • [the other three drug mules are brought to the hospital in Paris; to the other cop]
  • Cop Sergeant: [subtitled] Don’t leave the car there. Park it up.
  • [one of Jang’s henchmen, Jii, is sat in his car watching them and makes a call to Jang; back with Lucy and Del Rio who’s driving them in his car]
  • Pierre Del Rio: You know, as a cop, we see some pretty weird shit. But I’ve to be honest with you, what you did back there, that freaked me out. To put everyone to sleep like that, do I need to be worried?
  • Lucy: No.
  • Pierre Del Rio: Good.
  • [Lucy is able to see frequency lines everywhere, she starts to pick a particular one in front of her and separates it out, Del Rio watches her]
  • Lucy: Do you mind?
  • Pierre Del Rio: No.
  • [Lucy turns on Del Rio’s radio com and is able to tune into Jii’s phone call to Jang]
  • [as Lucy listens to Jii’s telephone conversation with Jang through the police radio com]
  • Pierre Del Rio: What’s that?
  • Lucy: Korean. I’m going to drive.
  • [she gets out of the car and takes his police alarm]
  • Pierre Del Rio: Hey, hey, hey! No! No, no, no! This is a police car! You can’t! No, this is not possible, lady. This is a police car!
  • [Lucy walks round to his side and using her power pushes him aside to the passenger seat]
  • Pierre Del Rio: Okay. Okay.
  • [she drives them off]
  • [back at the hospital the cop approaches the three drug mules]
  • Cop Sergeant: [subtitled] Let’s go, guys!
  • [the three drug mules are made to stand and made to walk; to one of the doctors]
  • German Mule: Sir. Sir. Excuse me, sir. I need to talk to somebody.
  • Doctor: [subtitled] Talk to the police.
  • [he turns to the cop]
  • German Mule: Look, I’m a German citizen and I demand us a lawyer.
  • [to the other cop]
  • Cop Sergeant: [subtitled] I’ll check the surgery.
  • Cop: [subtitled] Grab us some food.
  • Cop Sergeant: [subtitled] You’re a foodaholic.
  • [as the cop leaves, Jii turns up with a group of Jang’s henchmen who enter the room the drug mules are in and start shooting and killing the policemen and doctor]
  • [after taking over Del Rio’s car, Lucy drives manically through the streets of Paris]
  • Pierre Del Rio: Do you always drive like that?
  • Lucy: I’ve never driven before.
  • Pierre Del Rio: Great.
  • [she swerves in out making her way through the traffic]
  • Pierre Del Rio: Hey, that’s one way!
  • Lucy: We’re late.
  • [she starts driving through the one way road causing the other cars to crash]
  • Pierre Del Rio: Hey, I’d rather be late than dead.
  • Lucy: We never really die.
  • [back at the hospital Jang’s men are cutting cut the drugs out from one of the drug mules as the other two wait their turn]
  • German Mule: Sorry, sir, I don’t agree.
  • [Jii shoots him dead, Jii points his gun at the Italian mule who holds up his hands]
  • Italian Mule: I’m fine. I’m fine.
  • [as Lucy continues to drive manically through the streets Del Rio notices police cars chasing after them]
  • Pierre Del Rio: I’m going to tell them to stop following us.
  • Lucy: Don’t bother.
  • [Lucy uses her power to make the street bollards to go down allowing her to pass through then makes the bollards rise back up in time for the police cars chasing them to crash into them]
  • [back at the hospital Jang’s men have removed the drugs from the second mule’s dead body when the cop that had left earlier enters]
  • Cop Sergeant: [subtitled] Hey, I got you backup…
  • [they start shooting at him but the cop manages to shoot some of them, the Italian drug mule uses this opportunity to make a run for it but he’s quickly shot dead, at the same time Lucy and Del Rio arrive, they are surrounded by Jang’s men, Jii puts the two packs of drugs in a briefcase and goes to leave]
  • Lucy: Give me the case.
  • [Jii smiles and instructs the men]
  • Jii: [subtitled] Kill her and get the pouch.
  • [the screen flashes 60%]
  • [as Jii turns to leave Lucy uses her power to create an invisible wall to prevent him from leaving, she then causes the men’s weapons to rise out of their hands]
  • Jii: [subtitled] Don’t stand there, kill her!
  • [as the men get ready to attack her Lucy walks past each one and swipes them aside, making them float above, as she reaches Jii she takes the case from him and walks back to Del Rio]
  • Lucy: Open it.
  • [she turns the Italian mule’s dead body, takes the drug from his stomach and puts in the case Del Rio has just opened]
  • Lucy: Let’s go.
  • [she turns and starts to leave]
  • Pierre Del Rio: I’m not sure I could be of any help for you.
  • Lucy: Yes, you are.
  • Pierre Del Rio: What for?
  • [Lucy walks over to him and kisses him]
  • Lucy: A reminder. Shall we go?
  • [she turns and walks off, Del Rio follows her looking a little dumbstruck]
  • [as Del Rio joins Lucy in his car]
  • Pierre Del Rio: Where are we going?
  • [the GPS navigator starts to give instructions]
  • GPS Navigator: Take the first left.
  • Pierre Del Rio: Okay.
  • [as Del Rio starts to drive off Jang, who’s sat in his car notices Lucy; to his driver]
  • Jang: [subtitled] Follow that car.
  • [Norman gets a call from Lucy whilst he’s with his colleagues in a university]
  • Professor Norman: Yes?
  • Lucy: Lucy.
  • [to his colleagues]
  • Professor Norman: Ah. It’s her, it’s her.
  • [to Lucy]
  • Professor Norman: Uh…hey, you. You’re in Paris?
  • Lucy: Yes, I am.
  • Professor Norman: Good, good. Excellent. So, look, I am no longer at the hotel now. Uh…I’ve come to the university where I’ve taken the liberty of calling to gather a few of my colleagues to discuss your case. Top mens in their field, and uh…very trustworthy.
  • Lucy: I trust you.
  • Professor Norman: Oh, thank you. So, do you think you can meet us here at the university?
  • [just then Lucy enters the room with Del Rio following behind her carrying the case of drugs]
  • Professor Norman: I’m, uh…I’m very pleased to meet you.
  • Lucy: Likewise.
  • Pierre Del Rio: Captain Del Rio.
  • Professor Norman: How do you do?
  • [to Lucy]
  • Professor Norman: Um…let…let me introduce you to my colleagues.
  • [he takes Lucy over to his colleagues]
  • Professor Norman: This is Professor Cartier, neurosurgeon. Professor…
  • Lucy: I know who everyone is.
  • Professor Norman: Ah, of course. Uh, gentlemen, this is Lucy, the first woman to…I mean, as I mentioned earlier, uh…Miss Lucy has for reasons that remain a mystery to me, unlocked certain portions of her brain that offer access to previously unexplored cerebral zones. She has abilities.
  • Professor: Can you give us an example?
  • [Lucy touches his shoulder and uses her power]
  • Lucy: Your daughter, Gabriel, aged six, died in a car accident. It was a blue car, leather seats, plastic bird hanging from the rear view mirror.
  • [as Jang sits outside the University building where Lucy is meeting with Norman, Jii arrives and goes over to him]
  • Jii: [subtitled] Boss, five men down at the hospital. Sorry.
  • Jang: [subtitled] How many men left?
  • Jii: [subtitled] I have about twenty-five with me. That damn girl, she doesn’t give in. She’s a witch.
  • Jang: [subtitled] I know that. I’ll kill her myself.
  • [inside the building Lucy senses Jang and his men]
  • Lucy: There are men coming here, can you secure the room? I need to stay focus.
  • Pierre Del Rio: Sure.
  • [Del Rio gives her the case with the drugs and leaves the room, outside the building police *cars arrive; to Jii who instructs the men as they arm themselves with guns]
  • Jang: [subtitled] Speed it up.
  • Professor: How did you manage to access all these information?
  • Lucy: Electrical impulses. Every cell knows and talks to every other cell. They exchange a thousand bits of information between them per second. Cells group together, forming a giant web of communication which in turn forms matter.
  • [she starts waving her hand and she forms another hand stuck to her hand]
  • Lucy: Cells get together, take on one form.
  • [she then makes her hand into a huge monstrous looking hand]
  • Lucy: Deform. Reform. makes no difference, it’s all the same.
  • [she makes her hand form webs before turning it back to normal]
  • Lucy: Humans consider themselves unique, so they rooted their whole theory of existence on their uniqueness. ‘One’ is their unit of measure, but it’s not.
  • [she holds up a pen, then let’s go of it allowing it to float]
  • Lucy: All social systems we put into place are a mere sketch. One plus one equals two, that’s all we’ve learned.
  • [she makes the floating pen form another pen]
  • Lucy: But one plus one has never equaled two. They are in fact no numbers and no letters. We’ve codified our existence to bring it down to human size to make it comprehensible. We’ve created a scale so that we can forget its unfathomable scale.
  • [at the same time that Lucy is talking to Norman and the professors Jang have infiltrated the place and are making their way towards them]
  • Professor Norman: But if humans are not the unit of measure, and the world isn’t governed by mathematical laws, what governs all that?
  • Lucy: Form a car speeding down the road.
  • [Lucy shows them a visual footage of car going down a road]
  • Lucy: Speed up the image infinitely, then the car disappears.
  • [the visual footage shows the car speeding to a point that it disappears]
  • Lucy: So what proof do we have of its existence? Time gives legitimacy to its existence. Time is the only true unit of measure. It gives proof to the existence of matter. Without time, we don’t exist.
  • Professor Norman: Time is unity.
  • [just then Jang and his men reach the building’s security and start shooting the guards]
  • Jang: [subtitled] Search the whole building and find her!
  • [Del Rio enters the room to warn Lucy]
  • Pierre Del Rio: We won’t be able to hold them for much longer.
  • Lucy: Time to go then.
  • [Lucy gives the rest of the CPH4 to the professors, they synthesize it into a liquid material in order to inject it into Lucy]
  • Professor Norman: Are you sure you need such huge doses? I’m afraid you won’t survive.
  • Lucy: Some cells inside me will fight and defend their integrity to the very end. In order to attain the last few percent, I have to force it. To crack the cells open to their nucleus.
  • [Jang and his men slowly make their way to their room]
  • Professor Norman: All these knowledge, Lucy. I’m not even sure that mankind is ready for it. We’re so driven by power and profit. Given man’s nature, it might bring us only instability and chaos.
  • Lucy: Ignorance brings chaos, not knowledge. I’ll build a computer and download all my knowledge in it. I’ll find a way for you to have access to it.
  • Professor Norman: Yeah. I just hope we will be worthy of your sacrifice.
  • [as Del Rio and the rest of the police wait to attack Jang and his men, Norman and the professor get Lucy hooked up to the drug in its liquid material form]
  • [pointing their guns at Jang and his men]
  • Pierre Del Rio: Nobody move!
  • [as the drug is being injected into Lucy’s bloodstream, Del Rio faces off with Jang and his men]
  • Pierre Del Rio: Do you understand English?
  • [just all of the remaining drug has been injected into Lucy Jang and his men start shooting at Del Rio and the rest of the police, Del Rio gets wounded, the screen then flashes 70%, then Lucy’s begins to metamorphose into a black substance which starts spreading over the floor and making its way to the computers and other objects in the lab]
  • Professor: What is she doing?
  • Professor Norman: She’s looking for energy in matter. And she’s trying to connect with our computers.
  • [as Lucy continues to gather energy from the computers and objects in the room Jang and his men continue to shoot at Del Rio and his men]
  • Jang: [subtitled] Chong-Ju!
  • Jii: [subtitled] I’m here, boss!
  • Jang: [subtitled] Do something about them.
  • Jii: [subtitled] Okay, boss!
  • Jang: [subtitled] You guys, come on.
  • [to Jii]
  • Jang: [subtitled] Ready?
  • [Jii nods his head]
  • [to one of his men who is on the floor after getting shot]
  • Pierre Del Rio: [subtitled] You okay?
  • [the cop shakes his hand to indicate mixed feeling; to the cop next to him]
  • Pierre Del Rio: [subtitled] Get a medic, fast!
  • [the screen flashes 80%; as Lucy’s brain function continues to increase, she is able to manipulates matter in such a way that erases everything in the room, leaving the professors standing in white space]
  • Professor #1: Oh, my God. What’s happening?
  • [Lucy then starts creating a new age super computer before their eyes]
  • Professor #2: What is she making?
  • Professor Norman: New generation computer, I presume.
  • [the screen then flashes to 90%; at the same time Jii takes a rocket launcher and blasts through the room, this sends Lucy to Champ de Mars in Paris, then whilst still sat in the chair she travels thousands of miles to Times Square in New York, she manages to move time with a wave of her hand which she uses to journey into the past, as she reaches prehistoric times, she comes face-to-face with the chimp from the opening scene, they touch fingertips which sends Lucy beyond earth and through the cosmos, the screen then flashes 99%]
  • [back at the lab, Jang slowly walks over to Lucy with his gun pointed to her head, at the same time Lucy is continuing her journey through space and time and just as Jang reaches her the screen flashes 100%; as Jang begins shooting at Lucy her body disappears, leaving her clothes behind, dumbstruck Jang looks at the professors]
  • Jang: [subtitled] Where is she?
  • [he points his gun at them]
  • Jang: [subtitled] Where is she? Answer me. Answer me!
  • [just then Del Rio appears behind him]
  • Pierre Del Rio: Hey, you!
  • [Del Rio shoots Jang who falls into the chair Lucy was sat in]
  • Professor: Look, the computer, it’s moving.
  • [the advanced computer offers Norma a flash drive and as Norman takes it the computer disintegrates to dust]
  • Pierre Del Rio: Hey. Where is she?
  • [just then Del Rio’s gets a text message: “I AM EVERYWHERE”, Del Rio looks around him and then turns to leave the room]
  • [last lines]
  • Lucy: [voice over] Life was given to us a billion years ago. Now you know what to do with it.
