Hey, that's-- can I?

No, you don't need this.



Have some apples.

What, you start the

game and not tell me?

Mom said not to talk

about auntie Fiona.

That's ok.

I'm sorry.

Thanks, Jamal.




I'm Ann, Lucinda's nurse.

Oh, nice to meet you.

Nice to meet you, too.

Come in, please.

Thank you.

Lucinda is expecting you.

Um, but she's resting now.

So she'll see you at dinner.


I-- I'll show you to your room.

Yes, just up here.

There's a bathroom right

there to your left.

And there are clean

towels in there for you.


I need to get

back to Lucinda.

If you need anything,

just let me know.

Thank you.


Oh, hey.

Finding everything ok?


Uh, is anything to drink?


Wine or whiskey?

Uh, whiskey would be great.



Here you go.


You gonna have one?

Uh, no, thank you.

I'm so sorry.

Thank you.

As you know, she was just

here, and it was really

good to finally meet her.

Did you like her?

Very much.

Yeah, me, too.

No one should lose a child.

Or a wife.

Of course.

What is that on the,

um-- on the island

that I can see from upstairs?

Oh, that's the lighthouse.

It has a great story, too.

What, the lighthouse?


You gonna tell me the story?

Um, well, the lighthouse

is on an island,

and the caretaker was lonely,

so he married this young girl

and brought her over with him.

But when she had been there

for a while, she looked at him

and said, there's nothing to do.

So he brought her a piano.

But when the boat came

with the instrument,

it only had one sheet of music.

And she played and

played and played

that same song over and over

again until he went mad.

He chopped the piano with

an ax, chopped her head off,

and then killed himself.

I'm sorry.
