Somehow, this discovery allows her to change. At the morgue, the sister of a girl missing for 15 years believes the body is that of her sister; this liberates her. An older woman, married to a man who pays her little attention, finds evidence in a storage unit; how will she handle it? The mother of the dead girl, who left home some years before, visits the last place her daughter lived and makes her own discoveries. Last, we flash back to the victim's final day.

all cut up.

And right

then and there,

the cops let a serial killer

slip through their fingers.

Why did he do it?

It made him

feel better.

You know, he'd get

all frustrated

or something,

then he'd cut

up things.


Why did he kill

the women?

Probably something

to do with his mother.



That's what

it usually is.

Her eyes were open.

Oh, yeah?

She was just

lying there.

Hey, you know,

what would be

the coolest thing

if when somebody's died,

you could--

peel off the top layer

of their eyeball

and develop it like film

so you could have

a picture

of the last thing

they saw.

It was trees.

And the sky.

This was hers.

Could I hold it?


You ain't yanking

my chain, are ya?

That's her hair.

I know.


Just, sorry.

Why do you think

I brought you here?

I don't know.

You think it's maybe

because I like you?

I don't know.

You want

to kiss me?


So do it.

Then you don't

want to kiss me?

I don't know.

You want me

to kiss you?

You gonna hold still

this time?


I don't have to tie

you up, do l?


Maybe what?

Maybe you

should tie me up.

Or maybe

you should

just hold still.


You want to get

in the back seat

with me?

Why not?

What's that for?

I don't know.

Is this

what you want?

I'd probably

get out of that.


[in pain]






What's the matter?


What's wrong?

No, I just can't

do it like that.


What'd I do?

You don't even

kiss me.

You're just lying there,

like you want me

to rape you!


You want me

to rape you?

I'll kiss you back.

And take

the gloves off.

You need

stitches for that.

It doesn't really hurt.

Not when--

you're kissing me.

Some serial killers

use objects when

they can't get it up.
