Synopsis: Emma is an attractive girl in her 20s who has been blind for 20 years. A new type of eye operation partially restores her sight, but she is having problems: sometimes she doesn't "remember" what she's seen until later. One night she is awakened by a commotion upstairs. Peering out of her door, she sees a shadowy figure descending the stairs. Convinced that her neighbour has been murdered she approaches the police, only to find that she is unsure if it was just her new eyes playing tricks on her.

247 West Damen what?

She's been waiting

20 years...

to fill out forms?

How you doing?

I think you're more excited

about this than I am.

I'm getting

new wallpaper...

and I just have to

have your opinion.


Just relax, Emma.

Count sheep.

I don't remember sheep.

I keep picturing

How about your jobs?


Uh, carton packer...

I love you all.

Oh, God!

Are you the new

Mr. Whitney?

No, kid,

I'm Santa Claus.

Don't you

recognize me?

Santa already came

at Christmas.

Yeah, well,

I had one more gift...

for Mrs. Whitney.

You got one for me?

Why not?


you're a bad kid.

But Mrs. Whitney

was good?

I have

absolutely no idea.

See this? This is

for sugar... candy.

No mind-altering substances

with that, OK?
