Untamed Heart

Synopsis: Caroline has not had much luck in love. Boyfriends seem to either leave her or cheat on her. Then she meets a shy, introverted man at work named Adam. When leaving work one day, two men attack her. Adam comes to her rescue. Unfortunately, retaliation by the attackers sends Adam to the hospital where he finds out he has a diseased heart. Adam is an orphan and was told he had a baboon's heart. He refuses a transplant, as he believes his love for Caroline is contained in his damaged heart. Before tragedy can strike, they have a passionate but brief romance. Adam opens up to Caroline and he, in turn, heals her broken heart.

Joey. Time to go.

Oh, aren't you excited?

Get his bag.

(voices outside)

- Goodbye, dear.

- Say thank you to Sister.

- (Joey) Thank you, Sister.

- Let me get one more shot.

- Bye-bye.

- Goodbye, dear.

(nun) One day the great king

of the silver baboons

came down from a peak

high on a mountaintop on Kilimanjaro

and caught your father stealing

his treasure from a deep, dark cave

from which enchanted rubies

spilled out down the mountainside.

After a great battle with the baboon king,

your father was very badly

wounded and left to die.

But when the baboon king found out

that your father wanted

the enchanted rubies to cure his son...

- Sister! Adam's not breathing!

... he took his own heart...

(nun) Children, children,

move to the side. Adam! Adam!

(child) Is he dead?

Did he hurt his head?

I don't know.

They just said he wasn't breathing.

Well, he's breathing now.

Call Sister Catherine.

- I will.

- Adam. Adam.


Don't give up on us.

Don't you give up, child.

Don't you break our hearts.

Oh, Adam. I've tried so hard with you.

That poor little heart of yours.

I don't know what else to do.

Oh, Adam.

(woman) Caroline.


Yeah? What do you want?

I can't do anything right now.

- Aren't you gonna get something to eat?

- Later.

# I am sitting in the morning

# At the diner on the corner

# I am waiting at the counter

# For the man to pour the coffee

# And he fills it only halfway

# And before I even argue

# He is looking out the window

# At somebody coming in

# "It is always nice to see you"

# Says the man behind the counter

# To the woman who has come in

# She is shaking her umbrella

# And I look the other way

# As they are kissing their hellos

# And I'm pretending not to see them

# And instead I pour the milk

(car horn)

- Hi.

- Hi.

- I missed you.

- You missed me.

Since what, yesterday?

Yeah. Why not?

Aren't we goin'?


- Is anything wrong?

- No.

- What do you wanna do?

- I thought we were goin' to the game.

What's the matter?


Do you wanna just go some other time?

You don't wanna see me any more.

No, I didn't say that.

It's just... I don't know. Maybe we should

just start seeing other people.

This always happens to me.

Why does this always happen to me?

I let myself get involved,

I wind up getting hurt.

- Caroline.

- What did I do that was so wrong?

Caroline, don't say that.

You didn't do anything wrong.

It's me. I just...

I don't know. It's...

- Come here.

- No!

Caroline, come here.

Come on.

- Don't cry.

- Don't leave me.

I'm going inside.

- Why don't I call you later?

- No, don't. Just leave me alone.

Caroline, I didn't mean to hurt you.

Yeah... Well, you did.

(girl) Did he tell you why?

(Caroline) No, he just said

we should start seeing other people.

He's a jerk.

He could've at least told you why.

Forget it. I don't feel like

talking about it any more.

- Talk about what?

- Steven broke up with Caroline today.

Which one was Steve?

The one with the fig tree in his yard?

No, that was Jackie.

Steven had the sick mother.

No, that was Bob. And his mother got

better, and that's when he dumped me.

- So, Jackie's the one with the fig tree?

- No, that was Mike.


- I'm gonna call him.

- Caroline, don't you dare!

My God, the guy broke up with you.

You gotta let him call you.

Caroline, this guy is a jerk, OK?

You watch. I'll bet you he's gonna come

crawlin' back on his knees, saying

"Oh, Caroline, I miss you!

I want you back!"

- Yeah, like they all do.
