As the credits are shown on the screen we see a 20-years old women in labor having hers and her husband first and only child. The hospital room darker than normal appears very tense as she screams in severe pain. Elizabeth, the woman is a white female with black hair up to her shoulders. Black eyes and a beautiful face are adjectives that made John to fall in love with her.
The camera moves around the room as we see the entire room and medical personnel that is attending Elizabeth, there is 4 people in the room besides her. Now as the camera moves towards her bed she screams very loud again. This is a sign of the baby been ready to come out. Above the head of her bed we see a calendar that has the date of July 22nd 1967.
Ok guys this is it, lets get ready to work
Yes sir, ok nurse let her know that is time now
She clears her throat
Ok girl we ready to go. Every time that you get pain I need you to push, not with you mouth but with the bottom part of you body. Just like when you take a dump ok
You got that right; I am ready to dump this baby now
She did not finish saying baby were she gets the pain again and screams from the top of her lungs
Come on girl; give me a good push
She is pushing while she is breathing heavily from her mouth
Good girl, I can see the head alreadycome on push, push, push it is coming
Nurse cleans her face as the other nurse cleans Elizabeths
Ok doc is coming
Thank you let me get in there
He gets closer to her bed and starts to work
Give me the water
They you go sir
He pulls the baby out as Elizabeth pushes and breath while still screaming
The nurse grabs the baby girl and wraps her on a towel and walks towards the glass wall were John, the father is waiting to see her. The nurse will get the baby and place it very close to the glass so her dad can almost touch her.
John, who is 20 also places his finger on the glass as the baby cries and he also does of happiness
The camera moves from the glass as we here a click sound
Screen goes empty like when there is nothing on TV
Interior-Johns House-15 years Later-Morning
In the living room we see Rose sitting right in front of the TV as John, her dad gets up from the couch and walks towards the VCR to remove the tape
So what do you think?
That little thing is me?
In the flesh
That looks like did hurt a lot mom
In did Rose but I did it for you and eventually you will do it for you kids
Hold up she does not have time for that now, just school. You got that?
Yes dad. Dont worry I have no plans for that yet
Ok Rose lets get you ready. Today is your day
They get up and walk towards Rose room to get her ready for her 15th birthday festivities
John sits and looks at a picture of Rose on the wall next to the calendar with the date of July 22nd 1982.
I can believe she is already 15th
The camera moves and focuses up were a ceiling fan is
Camera is focusing of a ceiling fan and then goes down were the priest is finishing the mass that was dedicated to Rose
You may go in peace
We give thanks to the lord
The crowd gets up and commences to leave the church
As we see John and Elizabeth talking with the Priest and others
Im going to wait in the car dad
She kisses John and Elizabeth before putting her headphones on
Come on mom

A vehicle at a very fast speed is traveling towards the direction were the church is
Inside is Judge Clark is not doing well. He has a reaction to his medication and is swerving and moving all over the road as he approaches the church area were now we see the whole scene.
John reacts as he heard the vehicle noises as Rose is opening the car door
As the Judge vehicle gets closer and closer to Roses car John walks towards that same are
Finally the Judge floors his car obviously because the medication straight towards Rose
John runs towards Rose, as it is imminent that the Judge is going to hit her
Rose, look out
Elizabeth notice was going on too
Rose, John, stop the car
Everyone notices now as finally Rose looks and sees the vehicle but is too late now
The Judge hits the car by the door launching Rose over the car and landing by the grass in front of the church
He runs to aid Rose as the Judge gets out of the vehicle and the Priest helps him
Elizabeth passed out
As Rose lies on the ground
Rose, wake up girl. Please dont leave us know
He puts his head down and cries as he cheeks Roses pulse
He looks up and sees his wife also on the ground been help by the paramedics that just arrive and also the police which is talking with Judge Clark.
The Priest comes to were John is
How is she?

John gets up and star walking towards his wife and seconds later hes there
How she is doing

John looks around and once again sees the Judge talking with the police
John runs towards the Judge

A police office notices that John is coming and stops him

He had a reaction to his heart medication

His facial expression now has change like nothing has happened, as the Judge is place inside a police car and his wife on an ambulance

John gets up and leaves
The camera moves towards the ambulance were Rose is as it leave while we see inside Rose.
Back at the accident area

A taxicab has come to the area and is now turning around because the road is block.
John signals the taxi driver
John gets on a taxi and takes off as the camera follows the taxi to the next traffic light
The camera moves back towards the accident area and focuses on Detective Long
What a crazy situation. One dead girl, a sick judge and may be a crazy dad.
The police officer approaches the detective
Dont forget about the mom
