Synopsis: Tricia's husband Daniel has been missing for seven years. Her younger sister Callie comes to live with her as the pressure mounts to finally declare him 'dead in absentia.' As Tricia sifts through the wreckage and tries to move on with her life, Callie finds herself drawn to an ominous tunnel near the house. As she begins to link it to other mysterious disappearances, it becomes clear that Daniel's presumed death might be anything but 'natural.' The ancient force at work in the tunnel might have set its sights on Callie and Tricia ... and Daniel might be suffering a fate far worse than death in its grasp.

Bye. - Hi!

Sorry you had to wait for me. - No, no, it's okay.

Where did you come from? - Is there a park on the other side of the tunnel.

Look at this! - Yes, I know.

All I'm bigger, I started to grow! - No, you look good!

Tricia, your baby is huge! - Yes! I know.

I'm glad to see you.

Well, let's go inside. - OK, good idea!

So cars are you? - It was great, everyone should try once.

And what you're going through? - On the southern road, highway 66th

Texas is simply ...

Yes, I know. I'm sorry, I was out there ...

I did not expect so soon, maybe early afternoon or later.

Yes, I drove all night, I wanted to be there as soon as possible.

These are the last pieces, I realized that it still can be used.

Tonight we could apply a formal ... - Yes, of course.

God, it's really good to see you again. - And you.

The bed is amazing. - Yes, it's great.

As a quality mattress. - It's great, I've slept in worse beds.

Both know that.

I made a couple of small things nephew, or cousin, or who already.

Callie. - Do not get excited much. I was goodwill.

From New Mexico's.

Nothing special, but this is what I wanted to make.

Are you sure this is not a problem? I do not want to feel ...

No, I'm good juice and soda.

Are you sure that this will not disrupt your ...

I'm fine. - So, here's to you.

I'm really glad you're here. I know what happened in Vermont

in Pennsylvania,

and my mother mentioned something about North Dakota. - Yes ...

I lived in my car,

That was really cool. But mostly in Worcester.

Ohio? - Yes, I was in Ohio longest couple of months.

And later in Louisiana, I've already told you. - Oh, yes! I know, I know!

After everything that had happened, it was amazing. - Yes ... - This is amazing.

And, what was this clinic in Louisiana?

Okay, now let's talk about your pregnancy. Come on!

No! Calm down, sister. - Who was that?

Some mannequin, water polo, the gardener? The mother has gone crazy?

No, my mother was actually happy. Father has not told you.

F*** him, especially if you do not find the guy who knocked her up.

I'm just damn curious. - Well, we shall later on.

I'm going to clean up the kitchen. - Good ... gigantic whore!

The giant drug addict.

Basically, everything has remained the same since my last visit.

God, 5 years ago? - It was just after you left, so ...

I see, I've removed the wedding images.

At first I did not want anything to change.

Just ... You know, in case one day return ...

I did not want to change things later, because ...

I do not know. - Of course, of course.

Death in absentia ... - I know, it sounds a lot ...

I did not know that there will be paperwork.

Yes, I do, very much.

Final Report / i

The paperwork is done,

Police gave the death certificate of origin,

I gave osigurnaje agency, and a few financiers.

Had an impact on many things, you know, insurance and vehicle registration ...

life insurance, retirement savings account ... - You might think ...

that after 7 years will not return home?

When someone once declared dead, that's another story.

Dead, gone ... unlikely to occur.

So you need not wait that long ... Seven years ...

OK, I get it. There is no need.

A cry?

I printed them so much that sometimes I get to replace them.

So I saw a couple of torn on the tree ... - You ask a?

These are the last ones. Last ...

Can I ask you something?

You know, if it is not ...

Ask. - What ...

What do you think, you know, about all of this?

At first I thought he was gone, because we fought.

Marriage has already become excruciating. Then I thought of the amnesia.
