{ BAM! } While the [foreign] men lay passed out, Simeon and Levi grab their swords.

Dinah screams at the top of her lungs.

DINAH
AbbbaaAAAHHH!!

FROM HALF A MILE WEST IN THE COUNTRY: Jacob, Rebekah, Bilhah and Zilpah come running toward Neck Ridge.

BACK IN TOWN:

Simeon and Levi storm the town.

They murder 2 men.
Then another 2 men.
Then another 2 men...

The terrified wives and children of Shechem look on, screaming.

Animals run in terror from the massacre.

Dinah tries to stop Simeon, but he charges to murder Donkey-Man.

Simeon and Levi stab Prince Shechem with edge of their devouring swords.

DINAH
(screams)
My husband!

Rachel & Leah grab Dinah. They drag her away, kicking and screaming, from the massacre.

The rest of the 11 sons of Jacob see the murdered men of Shechem Ridge.

These Patriarchs of Israel go nuts.

They plunder the town (in wildly out-of-proportion, criminal revenge for Shechem bedding their sister).

Jacob screams at Simeon and Levi:

JACOB
(to Simeon)
Stop! You're whipping up disaster for me!

Simeon punches at Jacob.
Jacob decks Simeon.

JACOB
(to Levi)
You'll make me stink in the noses of the giant inhabitants of the land, the Canaanites and the Perizzites!

Leah runs up behind Levi, strangles him from behind with her slave rope-handcuffs.

JACOB
(kicks Reuben)
My tribe is tiny!

Rachel, still hand-tied pushes Dan to the ground.

JACOB
The pagans'll team up against me and kill me!

Bilhah smacks Gad across the face. His treasures spill to the ground.

JACOB
I... โ€”
(Jacob stutters)
โ€”I'll be destroyed, me and my whole family!

Simeon and Levi jump up to challenge their Dad:

SIMEON
(pushes Jacob's chest)
So, old man, you just want us to stand byโ€”

LEVI
(towers over Jacob)
โ€”while some pig-eating foreigner treats our only baby sister like a whore who spreads her legs for pay?
