Let me out!

Why are you doing this to me?

Please. No.

I'm not a little piggy.

I'm not a little piggy.

I'm not a little piggy.


Let me go.




Let me out, please.


Ashville County Police

Department. What is your emergency?

- I was in a box.

- Tell me where you are, ma'am.

- I-- I-- I don't know.

- Just give me your location.

I don't know.

I don't. I don't.

Ma'am, are you still with me?

I don't know.

What do you see around you?

Can you give me any kind of landmark?

Dead people.

Dead boxes.

I woke up in a box.

Can you tell me where we can find you?

We'll send an officer out.

Ma'am, you must communicate.


Try to stay on the line for 30 seconds.

We'll run a trace.


Are you from the police?

Bring her out.

I'll take care of the little piggy.

Is somebody in there?

Oh shoot, a locked door.

How'd you get in there?

Are you okay?

Don't you worry. l've got some keys.

I'll get you out.

- What?

- He's there.

No, ain't nobody here but me.

I'll get you out.

Don't worry.

Ain't nobody here.

He's there.

Did you run out of gas?

I'd siphon you some of mine, but I'm pretty

much floating on empty myself.

So you got a name?


My name's Tucker.

I work back at Schaffer's Mine,

back in the holler.

You ain't from around these parts,

are you?

I don't know.

Well, where you come from?

I mean, just now.

Where did you come from?

Where the dead people are.


That is quite a party, eh?

Dead people.

Oh, the cemetery.

Well, can you remember

where your car is

or someplace

I can drop you off at then?

Where the police lady is.

If you called 911,

that goes into the city.

The police lady will help.

Sorry, sweetie, but that's

a little over 100 miles from here.

Why don't you just tell me what happened?

Maybe we can get you a little help.

I woke up

in a dead box.

And a man tried to get me.

All right, all right.

Cindy's gonna know what to do.

Are you out of your mind?

We don't even know her.

She's probably one of them

crystal meth tweakers.

- Lower your voice.

- I will not lower my voice.

Have you seen

the way she's dressed?

It wouldn't surprise me

if she was a prostitute.

Come on. She's pretty and all,

but I don't think--

Oh. Oh, she's pretty, is she?

I get it.

Cindy, don't go being judgmental.

Let's just go out and talk to her.

I need you to see if you can make

some sense out of her, okay?

Her old man probably

roughed her up is all.

Thank you.

Hey now. You must be--

I'm sorry, I didn't get your name.

Tucker tells me

he picked you up on the street...

...that you were coming from a...

...a cemetery? Is that right?

Wa-- water.

Oh, I'll get you some.

Listen, ma'am, I--

I heard what you said back there.

I'm sorry, I didn't mean it.

I just--

All I know is... head hurts...

...real bad.

And I don't know where this is...

...or how I got here.

I can't think

of all the names, first off...

...probably 'cause my head

hurts so bad.

I also know that I saw a man... old man get dead.

And another man tried to hurt me.

I woke up in a box also.

I don't know if he told you that.

So for all I know, I'm already dead.

Oh, who's dead?

I want to go to the police lady's

house now.

Oh, hon, all we got is that truck

and this genius here ran it out of gas.

We can use the telephone

and get more gas.

And then the police lady

can come get me.

Oh, sweetie, our phone got

cut off two months ago.

We didn't use it no how.

My brother will be here in the morning

with his truck.

No. No.

Somebody needs to know

about the old man.

Well, you don't even know

where he was.

There's lots of cemeteries

around here...

...and my truck ain't got

but a couple of miles on him.

Look, I'll tell you what--

you take a shower.

We'll find you some clean clothes.

You can take a shirt of Tucker's...

...and I got some nice shoes.

They'll make you feel better, I promise.

And in the morning we'll take you

to the sheriffs.

You're safe here.

I'll even cook you breakfast.

You're safe here.

Still love me?

I love you more than anything.

I feel real mean about what I said

about her.

She's sweet.

I just hope to God

she leaves that guy.

Don't feel bad.

I think we're doing the right thing.

We're doing the Christian thing.

Just you keep it Christian.

Don't you go sneaking in there

when I'm asleep.


She definitely ain't dead.

Hey, baby girl.

I'm sorry.


Everything's gonna be fine,

I promise you.

It's all gonna be okay.


Heard your foot tapping there, thought

you was dancing in here or something.

Let me take a look

at that back there.

Ow. I'm sorry.

That's all right. No, I'm sorry.

Be honest with us.

Did your old man do this to you?

Why did that man try to hurt me?

Some people's just rotten.

They're just ruined right from the start.

We're gonna go to that station tomorrow.

I promise you, they gotta have

some sort of list...

...that shows people gone missing.

Hey, I got an idea.

Since you can't

remember your name...

...why don't we

pick one out for you...

- ...just till you get yours back anyway?

- Okay.

Try real hard. Maybe you can recall

something from when you was little.

Princess Gemstone.

I think I used to be friends

with Princess Gemstone.

All right, Princess.

Cindy should be whipping up breakfast
