1 - Establishing shot. We are outside a hut in Ape City. It's not the fanciest of huts, but it does look pretty good, implying that the residents within live a pretty comfortable ape-lifestyle.
SIKESIA (from within): I just don't understand, Corleo.
2 - Inside the hut. We see a male ape (Corleo), standing and looking out the window, frustration on his face. He appears to be in a bedroom, although no one else is visible at the moment.
CORLEO (1): I need to do something, Sikesia! I can't stand by and watch our society's inequality continue to grow.
CORLEO (2): There is no reason an orangutan should have more opportunity than a chimpanzee. There is no reason that gorillas should be limited to positions of physical strength.
3 - Corleo turns around to look at Sikesia. She sits on the bed, looking back at him in concern. She is a chimpanzee and she is Corleo's lover.
CORLEO: Most of all, there is no reason that we should have to hide our love.
4 - Sikesia has moved to Corleo's side. She is trying to comfort him, while also wondering what has come over the ape.
SIKESIA (1): But you've been a solider your entire life! Your father was a solider, as was his father before him.
SIKESIA (2): Why would you want to turn your back on that?
5 - Corleo looks at his lover. He returns her affection, but part of his mind is clearly elsewhere.
CORLEO (1): The violence of our forefathers' times is no longer the way of things. Might doesn't necessarily make right.
CORLEO (2): If we want to change the world...
6 - A different room within the hut. It's a study. There's a desk filled with papers that are, in turn, filled with writings. There's a stack of papers that make up a manuscript. On the title page is "An Ape is An Ape" with "Written by Corleo" underneath.
CAPTION (CORLEO): ...first we must change ourselves.
