Butterfly Effect: The Creative Process


But you must have

something you can go on.

If I was to guess, I'd say

the blackouts are stress related.

But he's seven years old.

What kind of stress

can a seven-year-old have?

Plenty. Maybe he has

severe coping problems

about not having a father.

You said the last time

the blackouts occurred

he was visiting

his friend's dad.

Well, he has been pushing me

to meet his father

- and I've been putting it off.

- It's worth a shot, Andrea.

We can arrange

a controlled meeting.

A careful dose of sedatives

for Jason, some security,

Evan comes in

for a quick visit,

and with a little luck,

no more

missing father complex.

'April 15th.

Today I get to meet my father.

His name is Jason

and he's crazy.

I hope he lets me

call him Dad.'

You mean Dad lives here?

Not in this wing, actually, no.

Now if your dad seems

a little sleepy,

it's because

of the medicine, okay?


It'll just be a moment, okay?

It's okay. I won't bite.

You've seen pictures

of me, right?

Uh-huh. Mum says

I have your smile

and your hair.


He has to die!

It's the only way!

Jason, stop!


It's gonna be okay.

It's gonna be alright.

He's hurt bad.

Get a stretcher.

- Come on, let's get him out of here.

- I'm so sorry.

In sure and certain hope

of the resurrection

to eternal life,

we commend to almighty God,

our brother Jason.

The Lord bless him

and keep him,

the Lord make his face

to shine upon him,

and be gracious unto him

and give him peace. Amen.

Come on, where is it?

Damn, I know it's down here somewhere.

Tommy, I'm bored shitless

over here. What's up already?

Yeah, what are you

looking for, anyway?

Shut up, lard arse. And you,

hold your f***ing horses.

You know,

it's here somewhere.

We should go soon.

If dad catches us smoking
