BICYCLE BELL RINGS
I bet you said that yesterday 'an all!
The miners in these caves worked in dangerous conditions,
barely room to stand. The sand was used to make
-the famous Bristol green glass.
-Shift it, Blondie.
Hey, Stop that!
-Why was it so dangerous?
A build up of gas. Poisoned the miners, didn't it?
Come on, kids, you are the winners of our day out competition.
Not exactly the lottery!
Every other kid in the city is sitting in a classroom,
while you get to explore AND meet kids from other schools...
and agencies. I mean, how good is that?
Excuse me, but it's not safe.
Of course it is. All risk assessments done!
Nothing's going to happen to you, don't worry.
Helmet lights on!
Can't you feel it?!
I'm not coming!
Crapula - it's a long bone.
-Phone a friend?
-Shut up, Kat.
-Oh, I know, fibula!
-Can we please go to the hospital earlier?
I really want to get this thing off!
If you hadn't been doing that time motion experiment in the tree house,
-you wouldn't have fallen out.
-Well, Dad said it was a good idea.
THUD! Well, if Dad says...
Lads, keep it down for a second!
And this one is my favourite,
the humerus, ha-ha, except for it's not actually the funny bone.
There isn't even a funny bone, just the ulnar nerve.
Little girl... Claustrophobia.
Lads, lads, stop.
The guide's done a runner.
-Kat, just stop showing off.
-Yeah, geek, stop showing off.
You both just GO AWAY!
-Oh, and Dad says...
Ha-ha, very funny(!)
-Maybe he's gone back?
-He'd have to be bionic. He was there a second ago.
-Well, I'm out of here.
-I felt it coming.
Give it a rest!
Look... Let's go.
ALARMS BLARE IN THE DISTANCE
I was only joking.
This isn't funny any more.
NO CITY NOISE EXCEPT FOR BIRDS FLYING AND TWEETING
BIRDS FLY OVERHEAD
-Where are all the grown-ups?
MOBILE PHONE KEYS BEEP
THE LINE IS DEAD
My network. It's down.
Reckon there's been some emergency and everyone's gone to help.
Miss Loman isn't allowed to leave me.
My case worker won't let me out of his sight.
So where is everybody?
The end of the world?
Still no signal.
ALARMS BLARE IN THE DISTANCE
The police station's down this road. They'll know what's going on.
I try to avoid the place normally, but in the circumstances...
-How come you can drive?
-It's my job. I drive for a living.
-Really? You're a taxi driver.
-No, he's a Formula One champion(!)
I twock, you twit. Steal and sell on.
ENGINE RUNS >
ENGINE IS SWITCHED OFF < Kat, over here! Help me!
Kat, help. Kat, please help!
-Kat, come on, I'm upstairs.
I've been stuck here for ages.
Kat, where are you going? Kat, help me please!
-It's OK, Liam, I'm here.
I've been stuck for ages!
-It's all right, Liam, I'm here.
-Unlock the door, I'm stuck.
-When did you last see her?
-About ten minutes ago, I think.
But my watch has stopped.
Anyway, she only gave me five minutes time out.
I've been shouting and shouting.
And I'm off school with a bad throat and now it's much badder and...
MUSIC PLAYS OUTSIDE Kat, what's wrong?
-I think I can hear an ice-cream van.
ICE CREAM VAN JINGLE PLAYS SOFTLY
-Is it empty?
JINGLE IS TURNED OFF
-Er, double 99, please.
-Chocolate or raspberry sauce?
Where's the man?
Come on, it's all right. Let's go and see if we can...
STATIC ON RADIO
Why isn't there anything on the radio?
Why isn't anyone telling us what to do?
-Somewhere other than here.
Is it me or is Mystic Meg doing anyone else's head in?
-I think we should just go to the police station.
-It'll be empty.
It's not just you.
-Are we there yet?
-See you around.
What's up? Do you want a baby-sitter?
-No, what are you up to?
-Anything I want.
-Anything I want.
-Leave her alone.
Like I said.
See you around.
Hey! Who's hungry?
Glad I haven't got a baby brother or sister to worry about right now.
I've got it! It's a national strike.
Then people would be off work and out shopping in here.
-I've got another idea!
-Make it better than his.
Grab all you can. First one to the check-out wins.
Come on! Losers!
Get out of the way!
-Ha-ha! Shame! Loser!
SHOUTING AND LAUGHTER
Out the way!
-What do you think you're doing?!
An adult, a grown-up! Over here!
You had your hand in the till.
-Own this place, do you?
-Er, no, but someone does.
They must be on holiday with the rest of the human race.
-Stealing is still wrong.
We borrowed ice-creams from the van, didn't we, Kat?
Yes, but I was going to see if there was someone on the way back
-and pay then, so...
-Not so superior now, are you?
-I know what's right from wrong if that's what you mean.
Who needs money? We can take what we want.
-Who says? The law hasn't changed.
-I am the law!
-I'm only joking. What's your problem?
-Same as yours, probably.
I'm looking for my mum, my sister.
-How old's your sister?
Kat...you promised you'd find my mum.
I know, and I will.
Come on, let's head back before everyone comes home.
She's got a point. I need to go home and check on my little step-sis.
Jeffrey! My brother. He's got cerebral palsy.
I need to make sure he's OK. He needs his pills.
His school's all the way across town. I can't drive.
Neither can I.
Neither can I.
ENGINE RATTLES, BRAKES SCREECH
SLOW HAND CLAPPING
Sorry about that, guys.
There he is!
-Oh, long story. Come to fetch you.
Why? Where's Mum?
Yeah, well... Have you noticed anything?
-It's been the longest lunchtime ever.
-you're overdue your meds. Come on, race you!
How come you can drive?
Well...my dad taught me to drive a tractor
on a little dirt track, surrounded by...
cute little bunny rabbits on the strawberry farm I grew up on.
Do you reckon the grown-ups have gone forever?
I doubt it. They always turn up,
usually at the most embarrassing moments.
It's insulin. I'm diabetic.
-Anyone else while we're at it?
-What's she doing now?
-You've got to see this.
-I'm not into closed circuit TV.
You will be when you see this.
Play that back.
-What was that?
At 11 minutes past 11.
It's a trick. They do it in film all the time.
It's just editing, right? Someone's having us on.
I bet we're in some kind of reality show.
I felt it coming, in the mine.
Then it happened at 11 minutes past 11, then it was over.
What was? What's over? What's happened?
But I know when it happened, cos all the clocks stopped.
-I want to go home now.
-But nobody will be there!
You're the one who said that everyone's disappeared,
so, if everyone's disappeared, that means your mum, dad, and my mum,
and everyone else over the age of around... I dunno! ..14?
My brothers and sisters are older than that. They'll have gone?
Who's going to make me my tea?
I'll look after you.
OK, people. We need to figure out what's going on,
and we can't do that if we're starving.
I need to go check on Frankie.
Pizza at mine?
I only eat Hawaiian.
Leave it, Liam, it's not yours.
Stop it, Liam!
Christiano Ronaldo for Real Madrid, taking his chances...
Liam! Come on!
Sorry, Kat, I was just playing.
It's all right, Liam. You can play when we get home. Come on.
This is your fault! If I'd just got home earlier.
Sadiq! Where you've been?
-Yeah, where is she?
-What you doing in there?
-Hello? Looking after your little sister.
It's my job, right? There is baby-sitting and there is
baby-sitting beyond the call of duty!
We heard the door, but Tia said we better hide, cos it could be anyone.
-She was scared.
-I was not!
All our teachers hid from us, it was so cool, cos we couldn't find them,
-and we got bored, so I ran home...
-Frankie, button it.
Stick some pizzas in the oven. We've got guests.
We've only got them horrible frozen ham and pineapple.
Fine by me.
That's Hawaiian, you know.
Come on, you can help.
Please tell me I'm imagining this.
Nearly home! Bet you Mum will be back by now.
That's mine! Come back here, you lot!
We've got to go.
But we've only just got here! They might have hurt Mum!
-No, no, they haven't.
-But how do you know?!
Because she's not here, Liam. Nobody is here!
Look, we need to find somewhere safe to go just until...
The grown-ups have come out of hiding?
Yeah, yeah. Maybe that's it, Liam.
Not how they thought it'd happen. Global warming,
famine, water shortage. Got it all wrong, didn't they?
-Day of reckoning comes and God just does away with them.
-You told me
you didn't believe in God, said you'd become an anaesthetist!
I hardly think it's the Day of Reckoning. We're all still here.
Maybe it's because we're kids and we haven't done anything wrong.
He has. Loads. But when you said you were joining a gang,
I didn't exactly have this lot in mind. Who's she?
SOMEONE OUTSIDE: Oi!
Oi! GLASS SMASHES
< What is it?
Just little kids. Nothing.
On second thoughts...
Wait, wait, wait. The wheelchair.
-Reese, come on!
Where are we going, Kat?
I'm not sure.
Let's go over there.
Wait there. Don't move!
Hey, hey, stop.
-Where are you going?
-To a hotel.
-Can we come?
-What are you doing?!
Just cos there's no-one here, it doesn't mean you can help yourself!
We're going with them, OK? Come on.
Where are we going?
-We're going there.
Cos I've no idea what's going on, but I do know one thing,
we need to stick together.
And to stick together, we need space.
We need space, we need food, and we need a door to lock
-to keep out trouble.
-I agree. Safety in numbers.
- Are we a gang, then? - I've never been in a gang.
I don't do gangs.
But I DO do fluffy white towels and matching slippers.
Now, sir, let's see. We've got the Churchill Suite available.
That has full disabled access.
Yeah, but does it have a flatscreen?
-We've got visitors.
Are you sure this is a good idea?
Kids hanging out together looking after each other.
It's the way it's going to be, until the adults come back.
Besides, what's the alternative? Home Alone?
Hurry! Jordan, find the back door, Ami, the kitchen door,
Jeffrey! Er...just block the door. Move it!
-Reese, can you get me the keys?
-Well, be sure!
Oh, these are visitors that we don't want!
-They're just like us.
-We don't know that, do we?
You can't take the risk - they'll be like Callum!
-Kat? What's happening?
-Just hold my hand and don't let go.
I've got the key!
It's me. It's us.
Hey, it's us!
All the modern ones are being snapped up.
I know another one, a street away.
-Want to try it?
-No, it's OK, but good luck.
You said all the kids would be hanging out together.
I thought they would. They are!
That's the boy from the supermarket.
If they know it's us, they'll let us in. Let's go try round the back!
-We'll never get in.
-The loading bay!
Help, Kat, I'm stuck!
Kat! Are you OK?
Go and find that big boy. Go!
All right, Kat.
The Sparticle Project was switched on today.
-The Sparticle Project.
When you switch something on, or press a button,
it starts off a chain of events.
And I think that's what happened today.
THE OTHERS CHATTER
Sadiq? I really like this hotel, but...
-..I want to go home.
-Frankie, this IS your home.
It's our new home.
Think of it like one big sleepover!
And while we work out where our real family disappeared to...
we'll just have to make do with this one.
But Mummy's all right?
Of course she is. I bet she'll ring in the morning.
Hey, you know all hotels have hot chocolate
and marshmallows in the kitchen.
What do you do when you can do absolutely anything you want to
-and there's no-one to say you can't?
-What are you talking about?
When we wake up tomorrow morning,
there's going to be millions of kids all with the same idea.
It's the end of the world as we know it.
Go! 'The world's changed. It's not safe to be on your own.'
- I'll take my own chances. - Mummy's looking for you.
-I think I just saw a grown-up.
-There's a woman in room 35.
-I need a deputy.
-You're asking us to join your gang?
We've got to stop the bleeding!
Come out, come out, wherever you are!
