Something I would tell you and all positing here - my opinion only. You will get far less comments if you post something in a manner that cannot be copied and pasted (i.e. like Google Drive). TO hard for readers to reference stuff.

In this script:

There are a lot of typos throughout the script. Spelling and grammar mistakes.

Do not put translations within the body of the dialogue. Dialogue is what is to be read by the actor. It is not a place to translate.

Do not put beats within the body of the dialogue or in the action. They are always in parenthetical. e.g.,

Mama. Where is Dad.

As a note, I didn't find any instances in the script where I thought they were needed in the first place.

The story is just okay. The dialogue struck me as stilted -  a bit unnatural.

Sorry, but overall I thought this was poor.

Errors aside, this is OK. However, the story lacks something. For this kind of story to work, the kid must learn something life-changing. I didn't get that from this piece and this, in my opinion, is this story's biggest weakness.

I don't need a return read.

All the best,
