Looks like it.

[Thunder crashes]


Can this day get any worse?

Well, well, well.

If it isn't Cari Lumis.

What's going on, Sheriff?

Well, we've got some flooding.

We're re-routing traffic.

Oh, okay.

Well, does that mean

I have to turn around, then?


We don't turn away our own kind.

Okay, well, I better get going.

My parents are probably

waiting for me.

Well, you let me move those first.

[Power window hums]

[Thunder rumbles]

[Thunder crashes]

[Insects buzzing]

[Crow caws]

[Truck door closes]

[Crow cawing]

[Door opens]

[Gasps softly]

Welcome home, everybody.


Let's all get in out of the heat.

Come on.

Come on, baby. It's still daddy.

[Rain falling]

[Cari coughing]

Drink this.

What is it?


Just drink it, dear.

Just drink it.


I can breathe! What was that?

It's a remedy.

Now take the bandages off.



It's working.

I need more.


I'll give you more.

But you got to do exactly

what I say, without question.

- Do you understand?

- Yes.

- You understand?

- Yes!

Now, that's a promise.

'Cause if you don't...

I can't help you.

Listen to me.

You listen to me.

Your illness is hereditary.

You could say it's a...

it's a curse.

It occurs when you reach adulthood...

and it can kill you.

- [Gasps]

- Shh. Shh. Shh. Shh.

But there is a cure.


Shh. Shh.

No, no, no.


I want you...

I want you to let go of your pain...

...and walk into the healing rain.

[Fire crackling]

Daniel, you awake?


I'm thirsty. You think you can

just sneak a little water?

Pa said we could have

some rations in the morning.

I can't sleep. Please.

All right.

What's the matter?

Thinking about what the boy said?
