At around to breath in, no resources of

At the beginning of the movie, I found myself watching
over a man named Eli who continuously walks for miles and miles in a world full
of scarcity where there is no life to live in because of the absence of
resources. It can be seen that the setting of the movie that the world was a
wasteland where there are no abundant trees around to breath in, no resources of
food to get in, insufficient water to drink, land areas got dried up and
thousands of building stood and started to decay over the years and got rotten
because of the chaotic past that has the world began before then. The story
began to introduced Eli as a brave contender with a big heart and strong faith
in God that no matter how hard life is, he continuously strives to survive in
order to protect what is inside of his bag. He got up into houses just to find supplies
like water and killed animals for food. Eli continuously walks out of nowhere
which seems to be like he is not lost in the world. Day after day, he keeps on
walking under the heat of the sun and the lifeless land until he fulfills his
mission in the world. As a lone person, Eli is determined and just keeping his head
high as he protects a precious book inside his bag. This is not just an
ordinary book, but a book with hope and life that would open and widen the
minds of its readers through the truths of the world. This is the Bible, the
only book that survived during the war. That is why Eli kept it so sacredly and
privately because it is the only thing that would reunite and restore humanity
in the world as one nation and that could save us from the chaotic world we
live in. This sacred book believed to be spread out throughout the nations and
voice out its message to the people who believe in the Lord. Eli, as I refer
him as the messenger of God, showed how strong and brave he is despite of the
challenges he has faced.

                        While
walking in the midst of the empty land with no water to drink on and food to
eat, he found a bunch of wrecked cars and saw a woman asking him for help. But
this man, Eli sensed that it is a trap from a group of men. Eli with his brave
heart faced eye to eye these group of men who tries to overpower him but with
his skill, he fearlessly defended himself from death and turn down those men on
the floor. I believe that with his strong personality and faith in God, he was
given a gift of skill from God that would protect him and save him from any
kinds of challenges because he has a purpose in life to fulfill. That first
action scene in the movie, made me believe that Eli is a person to look after
because of what he has showed and how he defended himself from a group of men
which keeps me on track to the next sequence of the story. After which, he
found a remote area where few people live in. A village where powerful
individuals’ controls over people. It is also a place where there are no
sufficient resources that could sustain the life of many people. This problem
showed in the movie is what we called scarcity in economics. Where it explains
the improper allocations of limited resources which resulted to the inadequate water
supply in the ruined village. I fully understand now why the people in the
movie lined up even if there is a long queue just to drink for the water. This
is where the study of economics becomes so significant because of it allows us
to understand little things that could answer our big questions in the world.
As Eli, waited for his water, another man tested him and got up again into
action. It is where he met a man named Carnegie and offer him a place to stay
overnight. Little did he know, Carnegie saw a potential skill of Eli to become
part of his troops because of what he saw from Eli’s fighting skills. At night,
Carnegie sends Solara the daughter of Claudia to satisfy Eli but being with a
dignity, Eli refuses and Solara seeks to stay so that her mother would not be
hurt by Carnegie. Solara saw the book that Eli’s taking care of. Out of
curiosity, Solara tries to ask what the book is all about but Eli stayed firm
not to talk about it. The next day, when Carnegie knew that Eli has the sacred
book, he then sent his men to look out and search for Eli.
