ISABEL CARON, a pretty young Latina, wanders erratically through the crowd. She stops at several booths, examines their wares and moves on. Shy and self-conscious, she seems slightly uncomfortable and out of place. Several times she looks up to notice a tall, unsavory stranger apparently following her through the marketplace. She stops at another stall and buys a scarf. When she looks over her shoulder the stranger is no longer behind her. She turns to leave and he is standing right next to her.
The senorita she is very pretty, si?
And spirited, too.
PAUL THORSSON, doctor on call, and ROSALIE BAXTER, head emergency nurse, have just finished attending a patient. PAUL is young, a few years out of internship, his idealism and enthusiasm waning under the stark reality of the ER. He straightens and stretches his back with a groan. He looks at the patient and then shakes his head resignedly. ROSALIE, a short, stout woman in her mid-forties, has been an ER nurse for twenty years. She has seen many young doctors crushed under its mill wheel and has developed a special affection for Paul, whom she considers almost a son. Slowly, she
pulls the sheet up over the patient's face.
(softly, to himself)
You can't save them all, Paul.
(turns to meet her gaze, continues, speaking to her now)
But so many lost.
It's late, Paul. Get some sleep. I'll finish up here.
All this technology..., we should be able to --
Now go to bed. You're exhausted.
The paper work --
I don't --
Go. That's an order.
Okay. You sure you're all right with this.
Of course. Now get along.
As he retires to his sleeping office off the emergency room, ROSALIE goes to a drawer along the wall, removes a form, and starts filling it out. She stops. She looks up toward his door, her concern and affection obvious. Resignedly, she turns back to the form on her desk.
ISABEL regains consciousness in a grubby, little cabin. A dull light outside the porthole dimly illuminates the room. She is alone. She can hear the throb of the boat's diesel and feel the constant rocking of the boat. As she tries to sit up she discovers her wrists and ankles secured to the corners of the filthy cot. Although she is conscious she is dazed and only semi-aware of her surroundings. JULIO, the tall stranger who had first confronted her in the marketplace, enters the cabin and begins unbuckling his pants. Isabel first realizes his presence when he mounts her. She struggles to push him off of her.
