Secrets in a Small Town (2019) Movie Script

- Sarah?
- What?
- Where is the toaster?
- What?
The toaster. I can't find it.
Uh, have you looked in the box
labelled "Toaster?"
Uh, yup.
I think
you hired dyslexic movers.
Hey. Think fast.
You're ready? We can't be late
for our day ones.
- I'll meet you in the car, okay?
- Uh, mom?
Right. Good call.
It's like the town
that time forgot.
Nothing wrong with a small town.
People know their neighbors.
They help each other out.
- It's nice.
- Adorable.
Is there a spot
to hit your horse?
Yeah, right between
the OK Corral saloon
and the Tumbleweed
general store.
Uh, mom?
Do you mind
if we don't walk in together?
Of course. I get it.
And, uh, that's
Vice Principal Porter to you.
At least between 8:00 and 3:00.
Cruel and unusual, mom.
Cruel and unusual.
- Love you, Sare-Bear.
- Love you, too.
It's a great reports and stuff,
but, um,
that's only every other week.
- Okay.
- Welcome to the head office.
This is Denise. This place
would fall apart without her.
- Hi, Denise. Nice to meet you.
- Welcome to Mattawa High.
- Thank you.
- Um, a little tip.
You might wanna go mark your,
uh, yogurt in the staff fridge,
otherwise Denise will eat it,
claim she thought it was hers.
Anyways, um, this is you.
This is great.
Well, we're very excited
to have you join our team.
Uh, it might be a bit slower
paced than what you're used to.
Oh. Well,
that sounds nice, actually.
I'll let you get settled in.
If you have, um,
any questions, any concerns,
I'm in the, uh, big office.
Thanks, Andre.
Well, that's good to know.
We were wondering
if you were cool or not.
Oh, it's my mom. She--
So, Chicago, huh?
Yeah. How did you know?
We're a small town.
It's what we do.
So you guys
have a pretty good team, huh?
- Undefeated.
- That's cool.
Well, I guess you'd know.
Ignore Maddie.
She has trust issues.
Look, first day sucks.
So if you have any questions
or whatever,
don't be shy.
See you around.
- I'll see you tomorrow, Jerry.
- Have a great night.
So... how was it?
Everything I dreamed of
and more.
Ooh! I do note sarcasm.
You do note correctly.
Green or red peppers?
- Red.
- Red it is.
Can you grab the chocolate milk?
Let me get the cash.
- Hm.
- Okay.
Oh, and can you get
tomato paste?
Oh, shoot.
- Oh! Huh!
- I got it. Here.
- You got a runner.
- Thank you.
You're welcome.
Was that your daughter?
Uh, yes, that's Sarah.
Yeah, I saw her taking some
shots in the gym earlier today.
I'm Ruth Simmons, I coach
the girls'
high-school basketball team.
Oh. I'm Claire Porter.
I'm the new vice principal.
Well, I guess
that makes you my new boss.
From the sounds of it,
you're doing a pretty good job.
Well, thank you.
Your daughter, she look good.
She is good.
She was on the team back home.
MVP every year.
Wow! Well, that's good to know.
I could use
another strong player.
We've got nationals coming up.
Uh... I don't know
if she'd be up for it.
She's having a little bit
of a hard time transitioning.
- Trying to fit in--
- Oh. It's the age.
My daughter was the same way.
Believe me,
I am an expert on teenage girls.
It's like I got ten of 'em.
Yeah. I don't know
how you do that.
I only have one
and I don't even know
if I'm doing a good job at that.
You know, I think only good moms
ask themselves that question.
- Thank you for saying that.
- Can I just...
I don't mean to overstep
my bounds or anything,
but joining the team
might be exactly
what your daughter needs.
And my daughter Kat
during the team,
she just blossomed.
She's team captain this year.
Not to toot my own horn,
but she'd be joining
a championship team.
Scouts regularly check out
our games.
Number of my girls
have gotten scholarships
at the top schools.
Well, that's impressive.
Tell her to come check out
practice tomorrow.
If she wants.
- I will. Thank you.
- Good.
Welcome to town.
- Hey, I'll see you at school.
- Absolutely.
Oh, this is not good.
What did...
Oh, my gosh.
- You liked that one?
- Yes.
- That's so mean!
- Whatever!
Hm. This one sounds good.
- Magic tablecloth.
- Oh.
- Ready?
- Mm-hmm.
Hey there.
Say hi to my rabbit...
Hey, that's the same tablecloth
we have.
What's he doing?
Come on, Harry. Here you go.
Oh, you're kidding.
Why does he have a bunny?
Please don't hurt the bunny.
The bunny has no idea
what's going on.
I'll tell you now,
it's totally real.
- It's totally a trick.
- No, he's gonna do it.
That's so cool!
- That's such a trick.
- No!
- That is totally a trick.
- No, that was totally real.
- Mm-mm. I don't buy it.
- Oh, my God!
Remember, uh, I told you
I was talking
to the coach today?
She said she saw you
taking shots in the gym,
and that she thought
you were really good.
- Really?
- Mm-hmm.
And she also said that they need
a shooting guard
and to swing by practice
tomorrow after school
if you want.
I don't know.
Well, season's almost over,
So? Sarah, you love to play.
And I, I think
it'd be really good for you.
Maybe make some friends
and show that team
a thing or two.
I do have a badass team.
Just try.
What's the worst
that can happen?
I guess it wouldn't be right
to let all this God-given talent
go to waste.
Yes, it would be
terribly selfish of you
to deny the world your gifts.
But don't you know, mother,
that I have an even greater gift
than basketball?
What are you do...
No, no, no, no.
- I can totally do it.
- No, no, no.
- Sarah, it was a trick.
- Come on.
I'm telling you, this is
what I was born to do.
No. It was a trick.
Move it! Move it! Pass!
- Sarah! Sarah!
- I got it!
- Come on, come on!
- Yes!
Oh. Yes!
Good. Talk to each other.
Nice shot, Kat.
You guys, I need more talking
to each other, okay?
All right, no mistakes,
no excuses.
- Be your best or...
- Stay home.
We've got Dina T. on the bench
and we need
as much offensive help
as we can get, especially
with Wilma next week, right?
I wanna introduce you guys
to Sarah Porter.
She's just moved here
from out of town and she's gonna
check out our practice today.
Show us what she's got. Right?
All right.
Sarah, why don't you cover Kat?
Take it from the top.
Come on, girls!
Let's go!
Let's see what you got,
big city.
- Go, now!
- Ball, ball.
Yeah. Catch the middle.
- No!
- Yes!
- Yes!
- Nice. Nice.
Over here. Over here.
- Yes.
- Come on, Kat. Step up to her.
Don't let her chase you down.
Come on.
Oh, boom! Way to go, Sarah.
Yes. I like it.
Nothing without pain, girls,
nothing without pain.
Come on, back up.
You okay?
So what do you guys
Sarah have what it takes
to be a Viper?
- Yeah.
- Yeah?
It seems unanimous.
What do you say?
Join the team?
- Like, right now?
- Like, right now.
- Absolutely.
- Heh-heh. Good.
'Cause we don't take no
for an answer around here.
You're joining
something really special.
Every single one of these girls
has your back
and they expect the same
from you.
Okay? Okay.
This year
we're taking nationals.
Come on, cap.
- Two, three...
- Vipers!
Sorry about the elbow.
I practice like I play.
From now on,
save it for the other team.
So, listen, we're all going
to Maddie's tonight.
Her dad works nights.
You should come.
Okay. Cool. I'm in.
Big city is in!
Mom. What are you doing here?
I was too excited to wait.
- So?
- I'm on the team.
Yes! I knew it.
Oh! Honey, congratulations.
I'm so proud of you.
We have to celebrate.
Tonight let's watch
The Princess Bride
and peg out on
mint, chocolate-chip ice cream.
That sounds awesome, but, uh,
I got invited
to this team-bonding thing.
- Tonight?
- Yeah.
Everyone's heading
over there now.
Okay. I'm...
I mean, that's great.
We can do girls' night
another time.
So is this like a,
it's like a party?
I don't know. Kinda, I guess.
Is there gonna be
an adult there?
- No, it's just the team I think.
- Oh.
- Well, I don't really like that.
- Mom.
What about boys?
What about them?
Come on. It's just the team.
I told you.
- Will there be any alcohol?
- You know I don't drink.
- Oh, I know.
- Hey, Sarah.
If you want a ride,
you can come with us.
Okay. Cool.
I can drive you.
That would literally
be the worst.
Well, I want you home by 11:00.
You're being
a total helicopter mom.
- A what?
- A helicopter mom.
You're always
hovering around me.
I am not. I am just trying to--
Mom, I'll be fine. I promise.
I love you.
Hey, this is Sarah.
Hey, Sarah, it's mom calling.
Um, just noticed
you haven't texted me back
at all tonight,
so I just wanted to check in
and make sure you're okay.
I'm sure you are.
You're probably having a blast.
Um, I am heading to sleep,
so send me a text and let me
know when to expect you, okay?
Oh, and don't get your hopes up.
There's absolutely no ice cream
left in the house whatsoever.
Love you, Sare-Bear. Bye.
Rise and shine, party animal.
What? You forgot
how to send a text?
Good morning, Denise.
It's Claire Porter.
Listen. I'm just on my way in.
I was wondering
if you could check
what class Sarah has
this morning for me.
Biology 205. Great.
Thank you.
Yes, I'll see you soon.
- That's not true.
- Yes.
Um... hey.
Guys, hold up a second.
Oh. Hi, Vice Principal Porter.
Uh, I'm Kat, team captain.
Hi, Kat. Nice to meet you.
Um, I was just wondering
if any of you
have seen Sarah this morning.
- Um, no.
- No.
I'm sorry, I just, I...
She didn't come home last night,
so I thought
she just might have
stayed over at, um...
- Uh, who hosted?
- That's me.
Hi. So Sarah didn't stay over
at your place last night?
- No.
- Did she leave?
- Uh-huh.
- What time?
I don't really remember.
Do you remember, Kat?
It was after we did
our Dream Boards for sure,
but I wasn't really
looking at the time.
Did she seem upset?
Did she say anything?
No, she seemed cool.
Don't worry. She probably
just skipped or something.
Okay, Sarah doesn't skip, so--
Sorry, we gotta go to practice.
But it was nice to meet you,
Ms. Porter.
- Hey, coach.
- Hey, coach.
Come on, we're already late
today. Let's get to it.
All right?
All right, go.
Hey, is this Cindy?
Hi, Cindy, it's Claire Porter,
Sarah's mom.
Yes, no...
We're great, we're great.
Yes. Um, have you heard
from Sarah recently?
Okay. No, no, no. No,
everything, everything is fine.
Would you do me a favor
and let me know
as soon as you hear from her?
Hi, is this Bruce? Hi,
it's Claire Porter, Sarah's mom.
Yeah, I, no, I just thought
she, she might've
reached out and said hey.
Oh. Okay, yeah.
Can you text me Rhea's number?
Hey, hi, yeah, this is, um,
Claire Porter, Sarah's mom.
Uh, have you heard from Sarah?
Have you seen her online at all?
Yeah, that'd be great.
Can you call me if you hear
anything? I don't, I don't care.
I don't care what time it is.
I need you to call me.
Yeah, I have, I have,
I have checked everywhere.
I'm looking everywhere.
It is just not like her.
Yes, thank you.
I have called her.
Yeah, I don't, I don't know.
I don't know, I don't know.
What do you... Lauren?
Of course, I've called...
She was the first person
that I actually even...
Oh, gosh.
- Uh...
- Oh, I... Oh, I am so sorry.
I am so sorry.
I thought you were...
- What's up with that?
- I have no idea.
May I help you?
My daughter.
She didn't come home last night.
Who didn't come home?
My daughter.
You're the ones
who just moved in to the, uh,
Henderson's old house, huh?
Yes. I'm Claire Porter.
M-my daughter's name is Sarah.
Please, take a seat.
This is Sheriff Mosley.
I'm Rick.
Why don't you tell us
what happened?
Uh, S-Sarah made
the basketball team yesterday
and left to go
to this team-bonding thing
with the other girls.
to your daughter.
My niece is on the team.
What time was this?
Around 3:30.
She was supposed
to be back at 11:00,
but she didn't come home
last night.
So I just assumed
that she stayed over
at one of the girl's places,
but she didn't come
to school today, so I checked in
with the teammates
and they said that they all
saw her leave last night.
Okay. Slow, slow down now.
Uh, you tried calling her.
- Right?
- Yes, I've tried calling her.
I've been calling her non-stop.
She's not answering.
The last time you saw her,
was she acting strange?
Did she seem upset?
No, she had just made the team.
She was so happy.
Hm, she probably partied
too hard
and she's sleeping it off
No, that is,
that is not my Sarah.
- She's a teenager.
- I know my daughter.
- Are you sure about that?
- Doug.
Look, I'm just saying.
I mean, who knows what goes on
in a teenage girl's mind?
I mean, I sure as hell don't.
Hm. Does she have a boyfriend,
maybe back in...
Yes, an ex-boyfriend.
But I've called him
and everyone else she knows,
and no one has heard from her.
What about her father?
Where is he?
Um, he-he, he passed away
seven months ago.
- Very sorry.
- Did you check to see--
Look, I, I have already done
all of the things
you're going to ask me, okay?
I have checked with her friends.
I have...
I drove around looking for her.
I have texted her,
I've sent her messages,
I have checked her social media.
Sarah would not just disappear
without letting me know.
That is not like her.
My daughter is missing.
Do you hear me?
She is missing!
Okay. Okay.
Doug, I think we should bring in
the girls from the team.
- Excuse me?
- Well, they were the last ones.
To see Sarah.
Hold on here.
What exactly
are you accusing them of?
Well, no one's accusing anyone,
These girls are
the gold standard of this town.
My niece Maddie is looking
at a full sports scholarship
to Michigan State.
Well, then I hope that doesn't
cloud your judgement, sheriff.
Deputy, you get her statement.
I'll make some calls.
There we go.
- You ready?
- Mm-hmm.
Okay, so tell me now,
in your own words, okay?
What do you remember
about Sarah Porter?
I mean, and what happened
last night?
Well, I invited her
to Maddie's house,
and, uh, we were
all pretty excited
to have her on the team.
It's, it's more
of a sisterhood.
- So we just...
- Well, you can't be in here.
I'm not going anywhere.
Just don't tell Doug.
So what time
did Sarah come by?
Um, I think
it was just before 7:00.
Um, just before seven o'clock.
All right.
So who's there?
- Uh, it was just the team.
- No adults?
- Her dad was at work.
- Okay.
So was this a party?
A party?
Hardly, Uncle Doug.
We just ordered Chinese food
and just wanted
to get to know Sarah.
How did Sarah seem
when she came by?
She had this huge bottle
of vodka.
And when she got there,
she was just taking
shot after shot.
She was kinda just drinking
alone in the corner.
- She was getting, like...
- Wasted.
And you know
we, uh, we don't drink.
We signed it in honor code,
I don't know. We were all
pretty weirded out by it.
Okay. Then what happened?
She was just, like, really pissy
and kept drinking.
She was saying how much
she hated moving to this town.
How much
Chicago was so much better.
- She called us hicks.
- How'd that make you feel?
Her behavior
made me feel uncomfortable.
Um, w-what did she do then?
Kat told her to go get some air
and she went out...
You know, the big chair
on the back porch?
She went out for some air,
I guess to, like, cool off.
Yeah, we just stayed inside
and worked on our place
and our drills.
I just figured, you know,
let her do her own thing.
Kat went to go check on her,
and she was gone.
- She was just gone?
- Yeah.
I mean, I assumed
she just went home.
That's what we all thought.
- Nobody saw her leave?
- No.
We all thought,
for sure, she went home.
Do you remember
what time it was?
I think it was around 10:45.
- 10:45.
- 10:45 I wanna say.
- 10:45 p.m.
- It was 10:45.
- Are you sure?
- Positive.
I feel responsible.
Well, I'm team captain.
You know, I just...
I don't know, I just,
I wish I'd have done more.
You did good.
Nothing to worry about.
Wait, none of this
makes any sense, okay?
Uh, what those girls were saying
about Sarah, it's...
That's, it's, it's not Sarah.
- Hold on. Hold on a second.
- All the things they were...
You let her watch the interview?
Damn it, Rick.
- Sorry, Doug. It just--
- I-I told--
Well, you've seen it all then,
okay? Look.
I've seen it a million times,
all right?
Emotional teenage girl,
she gets,
she-she-she, she gets upset,
she runs away for a day or two,
then she calms down--
No, I'm telling you,
that is not--
What kind of crap is this, Doug?
Her girl didn't come home, Reg.
What do you want me to do?
What the hell does that have
to do with Maddie and the girls?
Well, nothing, as it turns out,
all right?
You've got some goddamn nerve
accusing these kids.
Who the hell
do you think you are?
Okay, hold off, all right?
Dial it down.
- Shut up, Doug!
- Don't you...
- You don't even know that!
- Take it easy.
Dial it down, Reggie.
- Who the hell are you--
- Hey!
Hey! Reggie, are you kidding me?
You back down.
Her girl's missing.
You'd do the same thing
if it were Maddie.
Come on.
And in front of the girls?
You should set a better example.
- Everyone okay? Girls? Yeah?
- Yes, coach. Yeah.
Okay. Come on, Doug.
Can they go home?
- Yeah, they can go home.
- Everybody, go home. You guys.
We've got practice
early in the morning, okay?
Everything's gonna be fine.
We'll talk about it tomorrow.
You wait for me in the truck.
- Okay?
- Let's go.
- Go home, Reggie. Come on.
- Come on.
- Come on, Rick.
- Go home.
Claire. Claire, listen to me.
You gotta know
that if my girls knew anything,
if they had anything
to do with this, I would know.
I guarantee you that.
All right, you need
to stay positive. Sarah's fine.
She's fine.
They're gonna find her.
Okay? And you should get home
just in case she shows up.
Try to get some rest.
Okay? And you know what?
If you need anything,
anything at all,
you know where I am.
Okay? I mean it.
- Thank you.
- Okay.
Come on.
Hello? Hello?
Sarah, honey, is this you?
Honey, talk to me please.
Who is this?
Who is this?
Thanks, Margie.
I appreciate
you meeting me here.
I just didn't wanna
deal with the sheriff.
I understand.
So I checked your phone records,
and whoever called you
used a payphone.
I'm sorry,
but it could've been anyone.
You've upset a lot of people.
They're upset?
My daughter is missing.
You have to understand, uh,
folks around here
are very protective
of the girls on that team.
It's a high-school
basketball team.
It's a lot more than that, too.
And for most of those girls,
that team is their only way
out of Mattawa.
You go after the team,
you go after the town.
I am not trying to go
after anybody.
But, come on,
I mean, those girls
are not telling the whole truth.
They're hiding something.
All their stories
are consistent.
Well, that's just it,
when do even two people
remember an event the same way,
let alone ten?
And all those details?
Maybe they remember
the same thing
because that's what happened.
Or they rehearsed it.
- Look, Mrs. Porter, I--
- Okay.
When I spoke to them
yesterday at school,
none of them had any idea
what time Sarah left.
Now, all of a sudden,
they all remember the exact time
to the minute.
I have to show you something.
This is Sarah stealing
a large bottle of alcohol
from Reg's liquor store
last night.
6:53 p.m.
You c...
You can't see her face.
She's wearing the clothes
you described.
I mean, she...
She doesn't drink.
She certainly doesn't steal.
Look, Claire,
I think the sheriff
might be right on this one.
All right,
maybe she's just acting out.
She seems like a good kid,
She'll come to her senses
and come right back.
We do see this often enough.
Uh, sorry,
it's not Sarah-related,
but I gotta get back
to the station.
Listen. Go home.
Okay? I'll call you
if I hear anything.
I promise.
What the...
Yeah, I've to go through
the tour again.
Hi, um, can you guys
just take that?
And that's my daughter and,
uh, I haven't seen her
in a little while.
If you can just let me know.
My number's right there.
Great. Thank you.
Oh, hey...
Have you seen her? You haven't?
Can you, can you take that
with you and, and just call it?
And my number's there,
just call me if you,
if you see her. Thank you.
Hi. Excuse me.
Um, have you seen her anywhere?
Nowhere, okay.
Can you please let me know
if you see her,
and can you share that
with your friends?
My daughter's missing.
My number's written on it.
If you could, um,
just keep your eyes open
and maybe ask your friends...
Sir, would you mind, um...
Um, if you could let me know
if you see her,
that would be great.
Thank you.
She's about my height
and if you see her, I...
Please call the number.
We're organizing
a search party.
And time is of the essence,
so we need volunteers.
As many feet on the ground
as we can muster.
Base camp
will be the Community Center.
Also, we've set up an anonymous
hotline that you can call
if anyone has information
the whereabouts of Sarah Porter.
Sarah's mother, Claire, would
like to say a few words now.
If you are a person involved...
in the disappearance
of my daughter
or you know anything about it,
I am begging you
to please do the right thing.
I just want my daughter back.
if you're watching this...
Oh, sweetie,
I-I miss you so much.
I hope that wherever you are,
you are safe and warm.
And, honey, I want you to know
that I will never
stop looking for you.
I won't.
I, I just won't.
I w... I...
- Mrs. Porter?
- Mrs. Porter?
Thank you all. Uh, no questions.
- One more question.
- Do you have any leads?
Mrs. Porter?
- That's us right there.
- So we're here.
- We're gonna have three groups.
- Okay.
One, two and three.
Well, then how long
does it actually take?
- I am so sorry.
- Thank you.
- Um--
- What can we do?
Y-you guys all came out?
- Of course, we came out.
- Yeah, Sarah's one of us.
We all just...
We wanted to help.
Thank you.
All right, everyone,
listen up.
Thank you all for coming.
Well, so Sarah went missing
Thursday night,
so she couldn't have gotten
that far.
We're gonna get out there,
we're gonna cover as much ground
as we possibly can.
We're gonna separate
into three groups.
Each assigned
with very specific areas
highlighted on these maps.
Each group leader
will be given a walkie-talkie
so we can stay
in constant communication.
Let's keep our eyes and our ears
and all of our senses open.
Stay vigilant.
Let's find Sarah.
- Sarah!
- Sarah!
- Sarah!
- Sarah!
- Sarah!
- Sarah!
- Sarah!
- Sarah!
- Sarah!
- Sarah! Sarah Porter!
Whoa! Be careful.
You don't want to fall.
It's very slippery.
Your hands are freezing.
Oh. I forgot my gloves.
Here. Take mine.
- No. It's okay.
- You sure?
Yes, I'm fine.
You, you'll need them.
I hope we don't find her.
What do you...
What do you mean?
If we don't find her, there's
a chance she's still alive.
- Yeah.
- Yeah.
- Hey.
- Hey.
- You holding strong?
- Mm-hmm.
Yeah, look at me.
It's just like on the court.
All right?
You're lost in your head...
- You've lost the game.
- That's right.
- Mom?
- Yeah?
Stay here.
- Sarah!
- Coach?
- Oh.
- C-coach.
- Sarah.
- Coach, please, please help me.
- Are you okay?
- Um...
My leg hurts really bad, um...
Do you remember anything? Do you
remember how you got here?
I fell...
I woke up
and I didn't know where I was.
- I walked for a while--
- Okay.
- Please help me.
- Okay.
Okay, just...
You stay right here.
I'm gonna go get help.
No. Please take me with you,
- Can't move you. Can't move you.
- Please. Please.
- I'm really scared, please--
- I can't move you. It's...
I'm gonna get help.
You're gonna be fine.
- I'll be back, I promise.
- Please.
- Stay here.
- Please.
Sarah, I'm gonna be right back.
- Stay there.
- Coach. Coach.
Don't leave me.
Please don't leave me.
Coach, please.
Don't leave me, please.
Don't leave me...
What are you doing, coach?
Please don't close. Please.
You told me she was dead.
- She's not gonna make it.
- What are we gonna do?
We've to call somebody
or do something--
No, no, no.
We're not calling anybody.
You have any idea
what's gonna happen
if she walks out of there?
You go to prison
for a very long time.
Your life will be ruined.
She's still alive.
We have to do some--
You already lied to the police.
Are you willing to throw
your whole life away
for that girl?
The lives of all
of your teammates for that girl?
Group two,
you find anything? Over.
Group two, find anything?
Nothin' in this area. Over.
We're calling in
for today. Over and out.
My baby girl.
I'm not gonna let anything
happen to you.
I promise.
Oh... Okay.
All right, let's go.
Where are you going?
Please, please, no.
Help me...
Help me...
- Good morning, Steve.
- Hey.
- How you doing?
- Good.
No Kat today?
No. Yesterday was hard on her.
- She was upset.
- Hey.
So we're gonna head a few miles
further south today.
Down the escarpment,
it's a densely wooded area
and, I don't know,
I feel like we could have
missed something from the air.
Hey, don't you think that...
You don't think
we should stay along the river?
And if Sarah found the river,
don't you think
she would follow it down?
It's a good point.
Okay. Let's head
further downriver then.
- Okay.
- Hey, folks, change of plan!
We're going to, uh, we're gonna
be headin' downriver.
- You guys have all your maps?
- Yeah.
I found something
over here.
- What's that?
- Easy, easy, easy.
We don't know.
Right now it's just a canoe.
That's Sarah's phone.
Ranger, I need to get
everybody down here
to search every inch
of this riverbank.
Okay, you got it, Rick.
Also, call the divers,
we need to drag this river.
Come in, base camp.
Come in, base camp.
Base camp, copy that.
We found
an abandoned canoe on--
- Claire. It's just a precaution.
- No.
And we're gonna
need a diver.
- Claire...
- No!
- Do it now.
- Sarah!
Hi, honey.
You remember that lullaby
you used to always sing to me
when I got sick?
I sang that to you
ever since you were a baby.
Would you sing it to me?
Of course.
Tired eyes a while
Sweet is my baby's smile
Angels are guarding
And they watch over thee
The primrose
In the sheltered nook
The crystal stream
The babbling brook
All these things
God's hands have made
For very love of thee
Twilight and shadows fall
Peace to His children all
Angels are guarding
And they watch over thee
As you sleep
May angels
Watch over thee
How are you holdin' up?
I've been, uh...
I've been playing this whole
thing over and over in my head
and, and there is just one thing
I can't make sense of at all.
What was Sarah doing
way out there in the woods?
I have no idea.
I need to ask you something.
And I need you
to be honest with me.
Of course.
Where did you get that?
That girl killed herself
because of what
your team did to her.
That was a very long time ago.
You were the coach then.
And that haunts me...
every single day,
but I dealt with it,
and every single one
of those girls were suspended.
What if something like that
happened to Sarah?
What if it upset her so much
she ran off?
No way.
No way. I would know.
Those girls trust me.
They tell me everything.
How can you be sure?
There is no hazing on my team...
or on any team here.
Hazing is strictly forbidden,
zero tolerance.
If I knew anything,
I would tell you.
I'm not sure I believe that.
I was in the army.
Did you know that?
Deployed to Iraq.
Only woman on my squad.
On my first night there,
I was tested.
I was tested beyond
what you could even imagine.
But my fellow soldiers needed
to know if I could be broken,
and I wasn't broken.
I earned their trust.
And it took me years
to figure it out,
but... what they did...
it was a gift.
It made me strong.
It made me a survivor.
It is a tough world out there,
And I'm just trying
to prepare my girls for it.
But they're not soldiers.
They're 17-year-old girls
playing high-school basketball.
I don't see a difference.
Claire, I'm a mother.
And I can only imagine
what you're going through.
You just have to know
that your Sare-Bear...
she loved you so much.
How did you know
I called her that?
Like I said...
these girls tell me everything.
Go home, Claire.
Stop fighting windmills
and go home.
And, Claire...
leave my girls alone.
Excuse me.
Excuse me.
I'm sorry. What?
You're Claire Porter?
M-my son Patrick
goes to school here.
I heard about your daughter.
I am so terribly sorry
for your loss.
Thank you.
I hope
this isn't indelicate of me,
but... I run the funeral home
in town.
Funeral home?
Whenever you're ready,
we are here to help you
in this most difficult time.
What are you saying?
I'm sorry, I-I didn't mean to...
To what?
You didn't mean to what?
How dare you?
There's no, there's no body,
so there's nothing
for you to bury.
Do you get that?
There is no body...
because my daughter is not dead!
Okay? Sarah is alive!
What is the matter
with you people?
Claire, I...
I think it would be best
i-if you took some time off.
- What?
- Paid leave, of course.
Andre, I can't sit in that house
all day. I will go crazy.
How long?
Just enough time
for you to recover from...
To recover from this.
This, you don't recover from.
I-I didn't mean it that way, I--
You know what?
I'm gonna make this easy on you.
I quit.
- Yeah.
- It was on a Tuesday.
H-how can they do that?
Dope garage.
How can they tell you
what you can and cannot do
to your garage? Makes no sense.
It's a city.
you said a mouthful there.
- You ready?
- Help.
Yeah, absolutely--
- Yeah.
- I think she followed...
Help me.
What? No, no.
Come on! Come on!
Come on! Come on!
Chug! Chug! Chug! Chug! Chug!
Chug! Chug! Chug! Chug!
Oh, you lying bitches.
- Come on!
- Drink it!
Chug! Chug! Chug!
Chug! Chug! Chug!
- Chug! Chug! Chug! Chug! Chug!
- Please.
- Chug! Chug! Chug!
- Come on!
- I know you sent me the video.
- What are you doing here?
You need to tell me
what happened to her.
Tell me what happened to Sarah.
Tell me! You tell me.
Tell me!
- Tell me!
- Okay.
We invited her out that night.
we were gonna initiate her,
but Sarah had no idea.
We forced her to drink and...
And then we blindfolded her and
we merged her through the woods.
And you know
where we brought her to...
- Trust Cliff.
- No.
Okay, my mom named it that
when she brought
her first squad there, it's
where all the girls are taken.
It's where all of the girls go.
What are you doing?
Everybody was freaking out,
eating it up, so was I.
Then, then
the real initiation starts.
What? What did you do?
What did you... What did you do?
They asked her
to trust her sister
and lean in to the,
in to the, the nothing.
And, and she kept asking me
over and over and over again
to pull her back in.
Please stop! Stop!
And I was going to,
I wanted to, but...
- No.
- I didn't mean to.
She just...
She fell...
- No, no, no, no.
- Just went over. She just fell.
- I didn't do it.
- No, no, no, no.
- No.
- It was an accident, I swear.
I never meant
for it to happen.
It was an accident.
- No.
- I'm sorry.
Oh, my God! Oh, my God!
There's something else.
That day that we were all
looking for her...
my mom and I found her in,
like, this, this shack thing.
What? What are you saying?
My mom told me
she wasn't gonna make it.
What? A shack?
Where is the shack at? Where?
Um, it was upstream
from the water. I don't know.
Is Sarah...
Is she, is she?
- I don't know. I'm sorry.
- Oh, my God.
- Oh, my God.
- I'm sorry, I'm sorry, I--
I don't care!
What did you do?
What did you tell her, Kat?
What did you tell her?
I-I'm sorry,
I couldn't do it anymore.
That's okay.
You're willing
to throw everything away?
Everything? For who?
Some girl you don't even know?
What are you thinking?
I protected you!
I've done everything!
- Kat.
- No, don't touch me!
- No!
- Don't touch me!
- Where's Rick? Rick?
- Mrs. Porter.
- I told you we'd be in contact--
- Rick!
Watch this!
Chug! Chug! Chug!
Chug! Chug! Chug! Chug!
Chug! Chug! Chug! Chug! Chug!
- Okay.
- Where are you, baby?
Let's start from where
she's not. All right.
The search party
was split into three groups.
Group one canvased here,
group two here,
group three here,
so that cancels those.
Okay, which one had
coach in it?
She's group two.
Okay, then that's where we look.
That's where Sarah is--
No, the canoe was found
by Burk's Falls.
- No, she planted it there.
- What, coach?
Okay, I know Sarah is here.
I know it.
It's still a needle
in a haystack.
Okay. Kat...
Kat said that Sarah
was in some kind of, um,
shack thing or-or a cabin.
That wouldn't be on a map
like this.
And she just said a shack, Rick.
A shack.
Hold on, hold on, hold on.
There was Chuck Eagan's
old hunting spot.
But-but-but it's probably
rotted out by now.
That's, that's a two-hour hike
from the cliff at least.
Oh, no, that's too long.
That's too long.
Come on.
Ollie can get us there in 25.
Ollie, you're a lifesaver,
No probs, Rick. Anytime.
Q-33, you are clear
for take-off.
- How close are we?
- We're almost there.
Hold on, baby, I'm comin'.
Come on, baby. Where are you?
There. That's-that's the shack.
That's gotta be it.
How close to that clearing
can you get us, Ollie?
I can get you 30 feet
from the tree line.
Hold on, baby. Hold on.
Oh, my God.
Sarah? Sarah?
You're alive.
You're alive.
Okay, okay, Sarah.
I'm gonna get you out of here.
- I'm gonna get you out--
- Move.
What are you doing?
I need you to move.
Ruth, y...
You don't have to do this.
Yes, I do.
- No, you don't.
- Move. Claire.
Put the gun down.
- Claire. Claire.
- Ruth.
- Ruth, listen to me.
- Get out of the way!
- No. I'm not moving.
- Get off of her--
- Put the gun down!
- No. Move.
- I am not moving!
- Move!
I have to finish what I started.
I need you to move.
- No.
- Now.
- I won't.
- Ruth, put it down.
Move! I need you to move!
You are gonna have to shoot me.
Okay. Okay.
It's o... It's okay.
- Mm-hmm.
- It's o...
Oh, my God. Sare-Bear?
Sarah? All right.
It's okay. It's okay.
It's okay.
I can hear the sound
Of your
barely beating heart
Ooh ooh ooh ooh
Pieces on the ground
From a world
that fell apart
Ooh ooh ooh ooh
Just hold on
Ooh ooh ooh ooh
It won't be long
I will find you
Here inside the dark
I will break through
No matter where you are
I will find you
I will
Find you
Like the wind that cries
I can feel you in the night
Did you come here
in a helicopter?
A distant lullaby
Well, I am a helicopter mom.
Ooh ooh ooh ooh
Just hold on
Ooh ooh ooh ooh
It won't be long
I will find you
Here inside the dark
I will break through
No matter where you are
I will find you
I will find you
I'll be the light
that leads you home
When there's nowhere
left to go
I'll be the voice
you always know
When you're lost
and all alone
I won't let you go
I will find you
Here inside the dark
I will break through
No matter where you are
I will find you
Here inside the dark
I will break through
No matter where you are
I will
Find you
I will
Find you
