Blink

Synopsis: Emma is an attractive girl in her 20s who has been blind for 20 years. A new type of eye operation partially restores her sight, but she is having problems: sometimes she doesn't "remember" what she's seen until later. One night she is awakened by a commotion upstairs. Peering out of her door, she sees a shadowy figure descending the stairs. Convinced that her neighbour has been murdered she approaches the police, only to find that she is unsure if it was just her new eyes playing tricks on her.

are here to observe.

Bobby, are you there?

I'm here, Emma.

Good. 'Cause I got

to check you out.

You won't be sorry.

What's the first thing

I'm going to see?

Probably my face.

Keep the bandage on.

Stop.

I'm scared.

It's scary.

Could you ask the others

to leave? Sorry.

That was a joke,

about your face.

I know.

I, uh, I just wish

I'd seen it before...

so I could

prepare myself.

Picture the last one

you saw.

That's my mother's.

I never want to see

a face like that ever.

Don't expect

too much at first.

It's just the one eye.

Keep your lids closed.

We have to see

if this eye works...

before we do

the other one.

I'm going to open

your lids.

You have no depth

perception now.

Here I am.

Oh, Dr. Pierce...

It's nice to see...

to see you.

Who is it?

Hello?

Hello?

I walked into her room,

she looked right through me.

She couldn't tell

if anybody was there.

What the f*ck...

can I say f*ck in here?

I guess you can.

What kind of a doctor

are you?

I'm an ocular surgeon...

and I can't discuss

Emma's case...

with anyone

but Emma or family.

The band is her family.

We've got an interview.

She can't

handle that yet.

She's been on her own

since she was 15.

She handles a lot.

She wants you

to think that.

You want to

take care of her.

Men react this way

to Emma.

I do take care of her.

I'm her doctor.

Can she see or not,

doctor?

You know what it's like

to be sleeping...

and someone turns on

the light?

How it hurts,

and you squint...

and you stumble around...

and it takes you

some time to adjust.

Effectively, Emma's

been sleeping for 20 years.

Humans reach visual

maturity at age 9.

Emma was blinded at 8.

We just don't know

what she'll see...

or how well

she'll see it.

Can I help you?

Good morning.
