Where's My Baby? (2016) Movie Script

[tires screeching]
[Doctor]: What did you see?
I remember... falling.
I remember... darkness.
And I remember flashing lights and glass.
So much glass.
[car horn]
I remember.
Welcome to case study 2884.
It's 13:00, I'm glad
you could join us.
Post-traumatic amnesia,
or PTA as we like to call it,
is a phenomenon in which the
patient emerges from a coma
suffering from some degree
of memory loss.
Some short term
and some longer term.
Yes, Mr. Morrow?
Is-is that the woman who
woke up from a six-year coma?
Yes, it is.
It's like starting all over
from the beginning.
Memories can be affected.
Some will come back over time.
Some will never come back.
But she's running?
There is another factor
besides plasticity
that can have a significant
impact on recovery.
Not many of us in here have it.
And what would that be?
Who knew?
It's one of the most amazing
discoveries that we've made.
Ready to go?
Look at that.
It's a different world
out there now.
We've been sheltering you.
Word travels.
It's just a matter of time
before the media
pay you a visit.
What's the headline?
Woman wakes up from coma
and draws a complete blank?
Most of your memories
will come back,
but until they do, let's keep
the media at bay.
They'll just try
and confuse you.
How do I do that?
Hire a bodyguard?
Look, I think you have one now.
Marissa, honey.
I can't wait to get you home.
Here's your personal belongings
from when you checked in.
You kept all this for six years?
Don't go through all
that right now,
just let the memories come back.
Don't force them.
I'll take that, honey.
Home, sweet home.
Let's get you inside, hmm.
[All guests]
[tires screeching]
Stop, please.
Just give her some space.
I'm sorry, I can't.
[deep breaths]
You ok?
You want some cake?
I've got your notes here.
Left ear, or something.
Do you want me to go?
Just say the word.
Oh, no. Uh...
Drink? Are you allowed to?
Bottoms up.
You still like a Riesling.
Do I know you?
I'm sorry, I just have
these flashes, you know,
but faces are kinda tricky.
I'm Ethan.
Oh, hi Ethan.
I'm Marissa.
Nice to meet you.
I mean, you and I,
we go way back.
So how do we know each other?
Come on, let me introduce
you to the Marissa that I know.
That is the Marissa I remember.
Well, I'm kinda glad
that I don't remember that.
Thank you.
I can't remember the last time
I laughed so hard.
You know, not only am I
an expert table dancer,
I'm also a journalist.
I'd really like to tell
your story.
What do you say?
Thanks, but um...
I'm not interested.
I can get you the lead story.
I don't want the lead story.
I just want to be left alone.
Just relax.
Hear me out.
Just hear me out.
Wait-What's going on?
I'm just a friend of Marissa's.
Funny, I don't remember
her being friends
with a reporter from Channel 3.
This is the very first time
we've met, isn't it?
Marissa, I'm sorry.
If you ever need the media
on your side, I'll...
I'll be good to her.
I sent everybody home.
Especially that reporter.
Can you believe that guy?
Honey, I was just so happy
to have you back
that I wanted to tell
the whole world.
I didn't stop to think what
that would be like for you.
I'm sorry, honey.
It's ok, mom.
[Sounds of car crash]
[Mom]: She is going to be so
happy to see you.
[Heather]: How has she been?
She hasn't been quite herself.
So many gaps.
In all fairness, she was
in a six-year sleep.
She's bound to be
a little groggy.
Groggy doesn't even begin
to describe it...
Here she is.
You remember me?
It's so good to see you.
Oh, here.
It's on, here.
[On TV] Congressman Cal Ward
announced today
that he is running for Senator.
Former college football star
turned Democrat
is known for his fierce
commitment to the middle class,
creating a ten percent
increase in the employment rate
while in office.
I just want to make
one thing clear.
This is about family.
I'm running for senate
for one reason,
and one reason only.
To finish what the good people
of this state started.
Congressman Ward begins
his state-wide tour
stopping at 13 different
locations over the next-
Wow, it's so good to see you.
And you look amazing.
So you're...
I wanted to wait for you so
you could be my maid of honour,
but we didn't know.
You remember Cal?
We were at college together.
Well, he's running for Senator.
We're in the middle
of a campaign.
I'm so sorry I missed it.
The wedding, dad's funeral.
I just missed so much.
I'm sorry I missed your party.
The campaign, you know.
Don't worry about it.
I'm not much for parties
these days, anyway.
I'm so glad you remember me.
I have missed you so much.
Come on now, you girls.
You've got so much
to catch up on.
Get out of my kitchen,
right now.
Boy, we do have a lot
to catch up on.
Well, me mainly.
No offense but laying
in a bed for six years
is hardly riveting.
Wait a minute, are
you really my BFF?
Yeah, and I have the friendship
necklace to prove it.
This is gonna be harder
than I thought.
[Rolling thunder and sirens]
[Heart rate machine beeping]
[Doctor]: She's not
gonna make it.
[indistinct chatter]
[Doctor]: Who's in charge of
the anesthetic here?
Thank you.
So what exactly do you remember,
Bits and pieces.
You know, it's like a puzzle.
I've got these images
in my head,
but I just don't know how
to fit them all together.
Maybe you can help me.
Can you tell me
about the accident?
What is it?
Is there something
you're not telling me?
I don't know what to say.
I think it would be dangerous
to push you.
You get to make a fresh start
in life, Marissa.
It's time to leave
the past alone.
Here, come here.
Have this.
[Startled gasp]
Ah, it is you.
Are you following me?
I was trying to get
my caffeine fix,
which is now all over my pants.
So this is a coincidence?
But now that I have you here,
I want to apologize for crashing
your party the other day.
You were fresh
out of the hospital,
I took advantage of that.
I lied to you.
Yeah, you made me feel
like an idiot.
I know, it was a dumb move.
I'm a jerk, I'm sorry.
I just want to be left alone!
Don't you want to know
who almost killed you?
You were in a hit and run.
And the person that put you
in that coma is still out there.
I can help you bring them
to justice.
It was just me.
[tires screeching]
It was raining and
the pavement was wet.
That's not how it was.
I have photos.
I'm a reporter.
It's my business to know things.
Actually, it's none of
your business.
If I have a boy, I'm going
to name him Lachlan.
If it's a girl, I'll name her
Abigail, after my grandmother.
I would go with Kennedy
or Jolie.
[Doctor]: She's not gonna
make it.
Who's in charge of
the anesthetic here?
What's the matter?
There was a baby.
I was pregnant when I crashed.
There was a baby.
They gave me a c-section.
He was so little.
He never even took a breath.
A little flower to bud on earth,
and bloom in heaven.
I told Dr. Novak that we were
coming here today.
He advised against it.
He doesn't think you're ready.
You can never be ready
for something like this.
He was a beautiful baby boy,
They put him in my arms
and it felt like I was
holding you again.
All those years ago.
He was perfectly still.
Like a doll.
He's gone to a better place.
I'm so sorry you're here.
It should have been me.
Grandma wants me to say
goodbye to you,
but I can't.
So if you don't mind,
I think I'm gonna hang on
just a little while longer.
It's a girl.
[PA] Dr. Kravitz, you have
a visitor in the main lobby.
She's putting up a good front.
She's clearly still in a great
deal of distress.
It's good that you called me.
There's something
you're not telling me.
I spoke with your mother.
She's worried about you,
I don't know if you're lying
to me or trying to protect me,
but there was a baby.
Well, she appears to be
coming around,
but if she's exposed
to a stressor,
we run the risk that she may
retreat into fantasy.
Marissa, I checked your file.
There was a baby!
My mother held him,
she buried him!
That's odd.
Maybe a page was missed
when Dr. Novak copied
your file for me.
I'll look into it.
But that's not all.
The baby that was in the grave?
That's not my baby.
My baby was a girl,
and I think she may
still be still alive.
What do you suggest?
Maybe medication,
clonazepam for starters.
Isn't that a sedative?
Sometimes, when you desire
something strongly,
your brain can't separate
fact from fiction.
Obsession can falsify memories.
So you think that's
what's happening to me?
We're going to get through this.
I don't know if I'm comfortable
with that.
Well, maybe we could just stick
to routine monitoring for now.
How routine, exactly?
Well, weekly.
For now.
Dr. Novak, I have a matter I
want to discuss with you later.
After my two o'clock.
See you later.
See you next week, Marissa.
You're making great progress.
Thank you, doctor.
How'd it go?
It was good.
Why don't you wait here?
I'll bring the car around.
Your two o'clock is here.
Thank you. Send him in.
Excuse me.
I just wanted to say thank you
for holding on to my personal
They've been so helpful for me
for regaining my memory.
What happened to my daughter?
Your daughter?
I gave birth to her
via c-section.
I'm sorry, I think you've got
me mixed up with someone else.
I used to smoke.
But I gave it up completely
when I knew I was pregnant.
Please, I need your help.
I'm trying to find my daughter.
I'm sorry, you've got
the wrong nurse.
Isn't it high time that
we got back to greatness?
I think we can all agree
that status quo isn't working.
You know, that someone needs
to hold that one percent
accountable for their actions.
Well, that is exactly
what I intend to do.
When elected, will lobby
for jobs
for the hard-working
middle class
that form the backbone
of this great state.
[Cheers and applause]
So I propose to...
[Party music]
[Clears throat]
I... I propose to lobby for jobs.
Thanks for stopping by.
I didn't know you
followed politics.
I was just in the area.
[In background] Thank you
so much for coming.
Hi, Abby.
Manners, Abby.
This is your aunt, Marissa.
She's been away for a long time,
but now you're going to see
a lot of her.
Marissa. Hi.
Um, Heather told me all about
your recovery.
I'm sorry, I know we've met,
but I can't remember.
Sweetheart, the reporters
are waiting,
and we have a radio interview.
We should go.
Heather, how old is Abby?
She's five.
Are you ok?
You look like you've seen
a ghost.
She's alive.
Abby, lunch time.
[snapping photos]
[Planter crashes]
Dr. Lapointe?
[chatter in background]
Miss Davis?
Did you happen to get a good
look at the assailant?
Not for lack of trying.
Well, if you think of
anything else,
give me a call.
Thank you.
What were you thinking?
You almost got yourself killed!
Look around you, mom.
Doesn't it tell you I'm getting
closer to the truth?
It tells me that you're
running around
on a wild goose chase
and you're not thinking
about your own safety.
I know I'm getting closer.
I have some urgent news that I'd
rather not say over the phone.
Come see me at my office
right away.
I bet it was one of
his crazy patients
that went off their rocker.
Oh, and they just happened
to kill him
right after he left me
this mysterious message?
Nuts can go off at any time.
Come on, don't you go getting
any crazy ideas, eh?
Not crazy, but I have an idea.
We need him to sign off on
these before you go for lunch.
Oh, that's ok.
I'll take that.
Um, you know what?
I can't sign anything else
until I get a coffee, thank you.
Oh, come on.
What's one more between friends?
There it is again.
That look.
There are things that...
Does everyone make
you speechless,
or is it just me?
Excuse me, can I help you?
That's ok, the Congressman
and I go way back.
It's ok.
I'm sorry Miss Davis,
I'm just...
I'm really busy right now.
I'm sorry.
It's ok.
I can find my own way out.
So this is where they found me.
Yeah, just over there.
This place gives me the creeps.
Let's go.
I have to pick up Abby
from daycare.
You know, Ethan Fox told me
that it was a hit and run.
The news guy?
I would be careful of him,
he doesn't have much
of a reputation.
Actually, he's starting
to grow on me.
Wow, this really is
the middle of nowhere.
What was I even doing out here?
It's definitely not
the scenic route.
Maybe there was something
that drew me out here.
Or someone.
We had come here because
we had nowhere else to go.
My dad was so sick and I
didn't want to upset my mom.
This is where I was that day.
The day I lost everything.
Who was he?
I don't know.
But whoever he was,
he's the father of my baby.
Maybe he knows
what happened to her.
Marissa, he died.
No, that's not right.
My baby was a girl.
Special delivery.
What have you been doing
all day?
Oh, you know.
Out and about.
The usual.
What is it?
Where did you find this?
On the doorstep.
A few minutes ago.
Where are you going?
Marissa, what is going on?
Did you see anyone?
What has gotten into you?
Exactly this, mom.
What is this?
It's the day I had the accident,
It's her heartbeat, mom!
Oh, Marissa.
It's a hoax.
I buried your baby.
What if that was the hoax?
What if they gave you
a different baby?
A baby from a morgue
that no one would be missing
and they put that baby
in your arms and told you
it was your dead grandson and no
one would know the difference!
You have to stop this fantasy!
It's getting out of hand.
This is not a fantasy.
This is proof.
I got your message.
I didn't send a message.
I didn't send this.
Tell me about my daughter.
Come with me.
I was an OR nurse at the time.
I often worked with Dr. Novak.
We got along famously,
which is why I followed him
to the shiny New Era Clinic
even though I knew...
The paramedics said you were
pregnant so we thought,
given your injuries,
that the baby would be dead.
[indistinct chatter]
But then we detected
a fetal pulse
so Dr. Novak performed
an emergency c-section.
[Doctor]: She's not gonna
make it.
And you gave birth to
a beautiful baby girl.
[Doctor]: Put her
on anesthetic!
[indistinct chatter]
I remember asking someone
to get your mom
so she could take the baby,
but Dr. Novak said
there's no point in getting
your hopes up
since the baby probably
wouldn't make it.
It was touch and go.
She was in the incubator
for weeks.
And the EKG,
how did you get a hold of that?
Uh, I was shredding confidential
papers and found it.
I saw the fax cover page, too.
It came from Dr. Lapointe's
office on the day he died.
So Dr. Lapointe knew?
He must have found it
in your medical records
and made the mistake of
confiding in Dr. Novak.
Marissa, whoever took your baby
rewarded him well
for his silence.
They foot the bill
for his shiny new clinic.
His pride and joy.
So Novak told his benefactor
about Dr. Lapointe.
This isn't a game, Marissa.
Be very careful.
I will.
Who took my baby?
There was this woman,
she was in the clinic
at the same time as you.
Her baby was stillborn
and she was so lost.
She wanted a baby so badly.
I'm sure she's been
an excellent mother.
The baby she lost,
was it a girl?
No, a boy.
A sweet little boy.
They're gonna be best friends.
I know who took her, mom.
They're not gonna get away
with this.
What are you talking about?
Took who?
I talked to Cynthia.
Cynthia who?
Where are you right now?
I'm on my way to
the police station.
The police?
I know who took my baby!
Honey, your baby died.
No, that's not what happened.
Marissa, listen to me.
I need you to come home first,
Then we'll go to the police.
Otherwise they're not going
to take you seriously.
Come home first.
We'll figure it out.
Together, ok?
Yeah, ok.
I'm on my way back.
I'm so worried about her.
She needs help.
[tires screech]
I remember you.
Miss Davis, what's going on?
You're driving like a mad woman.
I'm just going home.
If I'm not mistaken,
home is that way.
Are you in on this, Peter?
Did you help take her?
Miss Davis, do you have any
idea how many conspiracy freaks
I deal with on a daily basis?
Congressmen are often
targeted by bored,
pathetic women like you.
He knows me.
He knows me.
He recognizes me.
He loves me.
Go home and keep your
delusions to yourself, Marissa.
Drive safe.
He just came out of nowhere.
He ran you off the road?
Yeah, and threatened to report
me for stalking.
Stalking who?
Congressman Ward?
Wow, I mean, I guess
he's cute and all, but...
I'm not stalking
Congressman Ward.
Peter Vaughn is connected
to this.
Why else would he follow me?
Maybe he thinks
you're a legitimate threat
to the campaign.
He's just doing his job.
No, it's more than that.
So you've unlocked
some sort of conspiracy
and the players are covering
I just want my daughter back.
Your daughter?
The Congressman's daughter?
You think Ward stole
your daughter?
I think she is our daughter.
You think you can prove that?
[Doorbell rings]
I really would like to have
a word with her.
Oh, Marissa.
Marissa, hello.
I was sad to hear
about Dr. Lapointe,
he was a good man.
It must be very hard for you.
How are you coping?
Well enough that I didn't expect
a house call,
if that's what you mean.
Uh, you know Rose, I think
I will have that cup of tea.
Of course.
I just need a moment.
I'll cut to the chase.
I read Dr. Lapointe's file.
He was very concerned
about your mental state
and now given recent events
I'm also concerned.
Recent events?
Your mother told me that
someone tried to run you
off the road this morning.
I was just startled.
You can tell me the truth,
Do you think someone tried
to hurt you,
or do you think that
you were really
just trying to hurt yourself?
Excuse me?
I've had patients who
have ended their lives.
Really all they wanted to do
was end the pain.
This is incredible.
I'm sorry.
Listen, I can't lie to you.
I think that Marissa's illness
is escalating.
She's suffering from paranoid
She might even have
a psychotic break.
I'm worried that she might try
to hurt herself again.
I think that she intentionally
ran herself off the road.
She needs to take
these sedatives.
I can't trust her
with the whole bottle.
I hate to ask, but would you?
It's one every four hours.
Monitor her closely.
Don't let her leave,
otherwise anything might happen.
In the meantime,
I'm going to make arrangements
to get her in intensive
What are you looking at?
Oh, just an article.
How to tell if your own
mother thinks you're a lunatic.
I don't think that.
I think you're overwhelmed.
That's just a nice way of saying
crazy, mom.
So have you booked me
an indefinite stay
at the loony bin yet?
Of course not.
We're just concerned,
that's all.
You don't believe me, do you?
You think I'm making
all of this up?
I think you're still recovering.
It's good to know
where you stand.
I'm on your side, Marissa.
I always will be.
I'm your mother.
Well, then you of all people
should know how I feel.
She's out there, mom.
She needs me.
Well then you better get
your energy up,
because my granddaughter
is going to need us
in fighting form.
Thank you, mom.
Now, you eat up,
before it gets cold.
Yes, ma'am.
You must have been exhausted.
After breakfast,
you should have a hot shower.
Then we'll sort things out.
[eerie music]
[thunder and lightning]
[eerie music continues]
It's a girl.
Honey, I...
How long has she been gone?
Over an hour.
Detective MacNiel.
I need to put an APB
out on one of my clients.
She's suicidal
and she may be having
a psychotic break.
Come on.
I'm here with Congressman Ward
and his wife, Heather.
Thank you for coming
on the show today.
Thank you for having us.
I'm so sorry to hear about
your daughter, Abby.
Thank you.
Um... she um...
She needs a kidney transplant.
Oh, no.
She is on the transplant list
so we're hoping she gets
a kidney very soon.
She has a rare
hereditary condition
called Elport Syndrome.
[Cup smashes on floor]
Are you sure you still want
to run for re-election
given your daughter's condition?
Family is my first priority.
And there are a lot of
families out there going through
rough patches worse than
what we are right now.
And I just want them to know
that I'm there for them.
Just like I am for little Abby.
[Phone ringing]
Ethan Fox, if I can't get you
on the news, no one can.
It's coma girl.
Still want my story?
Uh, are you serious?
Alright, bring all your
camera gear.
I want this to go viral.
Miss Davis.
How are you doing today?
Uh, Marissa?
You're on the news.
We need you to come with us.
We've got the suspect
going down Brodder.
Yeah, how far away?
Ok, well, thanks again
Thanks for the update.
Are you ok?
The stress is getting to me
I guess.
They spotted her ten
blocks away.
She gave them the slip
but she's still ok.
Now she knows we called
the police.
It's ok, Rose.
We're doing the right thing.
You know, I think I know
something that might help.
Yeah, I know.
I saw it.
Don't worry, I'll fix it.
Thomas, excuse me.
[Smashes computer]
I'll call you back.
[On TV] Breaking News...
Police are looking for Marissa Davis.
She recently fled her home and was
last spotted in the downtown core.
She is mentally unstable
and highly unpredictable.
Her family released
this message:
I know you're scared,
but you need to come home.
I love you.
It's only been three years
since I lost your father
to kidney failure.
Hey, could you deliver
something for me?
It's really urgent.
Depends if it's on my route.
Uh, yeah.
That's on my route.
Do you have an extra envelope?
Please, let me help you.
I know you think you're doing
the right thing.
This story keeps getting better.
But you're not well.
Oh, that's great.
That was Rose Davis.
The mother of the missing woman.
We'll be sure to keep
you posted.
Is that you?
It sure looks like you.
Yeah, it kinda does, huh?
Make sure he gets it.
I'm not sure if you've
noticed this,
but you're a fugitive!
Try not to sound so excited.
Are you kidding?
This is the best thing
that's ever happened to me!
I've got cops in my office.
This must be some story.
Whatever you do,
stay away from them.
They're just trying to find out
what you know.
Well, the joke's on them.
You've kept me in the dark.
You know where I'll be tonight.
You sure that place is secure?
It's no fortress,
but it's discreet.
Hey, thanks, by the way.
I think you may be the only
person I can trust right now.
That's when you know
you've hit rock bottom.
I have something to show you.
That's amazing!
Cal, you're not thinking.
I love you.
I love you too, but an unmarried
a baby on the way?
I didn't plan for this either.
But you walked into my life.
What am I supposed to do?
Risk losing you?
Out of the question.
I followed my heart
and I have no regrets.
Especially now.
Oh my god.
I love you so much.
And I'm gonna make this
right for all of us.
You're more beautiful than
the first day I saw you.
I got your message.
And this.
God, I missed you so much.
I- I lost you, and I had
a little girl
that needed a mother.
And Heather had just lost
her baby
and the doctor said she
couldn't have another,
so what was I supposed to do?
She begged me to stay with her
so that we could raise
Abby together.
She wanted a baby so much.
And then you had the perfect
little family.
That's how you won the election.
How could you do that to me?
I didn't do it for the election.
I did it for Abby!
Listen, she needed a mother.
The doctor said he didn't know
if you were gonna come out
of the coma.
And here was this
tiny little girl,
this tiny piece of you
that I could hold on to
that was ready to come home
from the hospital.
And what about my mother?
Don't you think she would
have liked
a tiny little piece of me
to hold on to?
When she thought she had
lost everything?
Marissa, your father was
really sick.
I didn't want to add
to her troubles.
I still don't know how
you pulled it off.
How did nobody know
that you had my baby?
Heather's family owned a clinic,
and that's where they took you
after the accident.
Heather was the one who paid
for your private care
all these years.
She's a saint.
Listen to me.
Dr. Novak agreed that Abby
would be better off with me
than some stranger
so he was willing to turn
a blind eye to keep the secret.
And just how far would he go
for that secret?
Would he kill for it?
What? No!
What are you talking about?
I love you!
I was only doing the best
for everyone, especially Abby.
Because right now she needs you.
She needs us.
She's sick.
She needs a kidney.
I'm not a match
but you might be.
Marissa, I... I know
I screwed up.
Would you be willing
to take the test?
Yes... yes, of course.
Let's go.
No, no, no.
You're all over the news,
we can't just walk through
the front door.
Do you have a safe place to stay
until I can make
some arrangements?
I'll be there tonight.
I really need you.
[Phone vibrating]
I'll be seeing you soon.
Miss Davis, Miss Davis, we just
want to talk.
Open it now, come on!
Open it!
Oh, my!
I said no harm.
You're lucky she didn't
sustain any head trauma.
What does it matter?
It's not like we need the brain.
Where am I?
Just relax.
We're just going to run
a few tests.
What... What?
Tests? For what?
For Abby?
For the kidney?
Something like that.
Where is she?
Where's my daughter?
We'll be right back.
Where's Abby?!
A must-see before the election.
Care to elaborate?
I don't know.
Like I said, she told me
what to tweet.
Now the only story I have is
"reporter's reputation dies
in a seedy motel room".
Are we done here?
We're done when I say
we're done.
What are you doing here?
What is this?
Say hello to your granddaughter.
This is Cal and Heather's
This is the secret Marissa
was going to expose.
Right before she got nabbed.
It would have been
a great story.
So you believe her?
Do you know where she is?
The police don't have her.
Do you know a Peter Vaughn?
What are you doing?
There's something
you don't know.
It's Cal.
Cal and Marissa were engaged
before the accident.
Peter Vaughn is Cal's
best friend from college.
He... he's his head of security
right now.
Rose, these people,
they're dangerous.
Maybe you should stay here
in case Marissa calls.
Marissa, my darling, what
have they done to you?
Just stay away from me.
Marissa, please.
You've lied to me.
No, I-I didn't-
You told me you were bringing me
to my daughter.
This is not exactly the venue
I had in mind
for a mother-daughter reunion.
I had nothing to do with this.
Marissa, please.
I want to help you.
I just... I want us
to be together.
What about Heather?
She knows I've always loved you.
You're a perfect match.
You can save her, Marissa.
You slept with her.
When we were engaged.
I had no choice.
What was I supposed to do?
It-it was before, it was
an accident, I had been...
I was drinking.
It's ok.
You need to go.
Marissa and I have a few things
to talk about.
Go check on Abby.
Just go.
You weren't supposed to wake up.
Our life was perfect.
Cal is going to be Senator.
We have a beautiful house
and a beautiful daughter.
My daughter!
I want you to know
that I love Abby.
I love her just as much as
I loved my own baby boy.
And I will love her just
as much after you're gone.
I'm not going anywhere.
Oh, you have to.
You'll ruin everything.
It really did work
out perfectly.
The hit and run.
You were there.
You tried to kill me.
That really was an accident.
Please, let me see Abby
before you do this.
Let me tell her that I love her.
You're giving her such
a greater gift.
The gift of life.
And then you will finally
go away
and everything can go back
to normal.
Cal is going to be Senator.
Maybe more.
There is no telling
what we can do.
How far we can go.
Especially with a sick child
who is coming back
from the brink of death.
How are you feeling, princess?
Daddy, I'm scared.
Don't be scared.
You be brave, ok?
Alright, perfect.
I need you to get set up
right here.
Make sure we get the girl
in the shot, please.
Ok, we're gonna take
that live feed
and we'll be on in three,
two, one.
I'm here at a surgical clinic
with Congressman Ward
and his daughter, Abby.
We've just received word
that a new kidney is on the way.
Um, yes, thank you, Jake.
We're going to televise
Abby's kidney transplant,
and when she pulls through,
the voters will be so elated
they'll run to the polls.
And guess who they're gonna
vote for?
You're crazy.
Now you're going to go
to sleep and not wake up.
Bye, Marissa.
You don't have to do this.
I do love you.
I would happily give Abby
my kidney,
all you had to do was ask!
I'm not gonna let you ruin
my family.
Make sure she's dead this time.
Mrs. Ward?
We'd love to get in a quick
word with you
and the Congressman if we could.
Of course.
This dose is high enough
to knock out a rhino.
I don't want to knock it out.
I want to kill it.
Like you killed Lapointe?
[Phone rings]
We have an uninvited guest.
That reporter.
I need you to deal
with him discreetly.
Got it.
Keep at it.
I'll be back.
Someone help me!
You understand?
Can I help you?
That's what I thought.
That's good.
Much better.
What happened to Cynthia?
Your nurse?
I had to let her go.
She was so unreliable.
You do know it was her that
kept you asleep all those years.
But then she wanted out.
And here you are.
Let's start, shall we?
Let's have a little mood music.
[Opera music]
Aren't the acoustics wonderful?
Call 911.
Medical emergency,
Novak Medical Clinic.
There's been a murder.
[Opera music continues]
Where is my daughter?
We are so thankful that the
transplant finally came through.
Any longer and we could have
lost our little girl.
And the kidney is on the way?
An excellent medical team
is acquiring it as we speak.
[Opera music continues]
Can you tell us anything more
about the donor?
From what I was told the donor
was in a car crash
and isn't going to make it.
That's why the organ
became available.
[Cal]: We are forever in her
debt for saving our little Abby.
Marissa, where are you?
[PA] Dr. Kravitz, you have a visitor
in the main lobby, main lobby.
I'm so sorry you're here.
My daddy gave it to me.
He said it belonged to someone
who loved me very much.
Do you remember me?
You're the lady from the school.
Mommy says I'm not supposed
to talk to you anymore.
But I've seen you before.
In my dreams.
You sang to me.
All the time.
I have to have an operation.
Me too.
I'm scared.
Can you sing for me now?
Go to sleep my baby,
go to sleep my dear
I am right beside you,
I am always near
Go to sleep my darling
Keep you safe and warm
All your life...
all your life I'll love you,
shelter from the storm
I don't feel that scared anymore.
That's good, baby.
We're gonna get you out of here.
You ready?
Come on, take this off.
Now we just need to pray
that her...
her surgery is successful.
It will be, and she will
pull through.
She told me that she wants
to see her daddy
win the election tomorrow.
And uh, through the grace of God
and the good people
of this state,
I know her dream will come true.
Now, if you'll excuse us,
we need to check on Abby.
She's gone.
I'll miss her.
She escaped.
Do you have the kidney?
Well, she won't go far.
There's only one place
she wants to be.
What's going on?
We have a slight problem.
You need to get rid of
the news team.
Please, don't shoot.
Marissa, give Abby to me.
I can't do that.
What are you hoping
to accomplish from this?
You've lost.
Abby will die if you don't give
her your kidney.
You're gonna come with us
and get back on
that operating table.
Not like this.
You know we can just take it.
You're the bad guy, aren't you?
Abby, come to mommy.
Just grab her.
This is taking to long.
She's sick, Peter.
If she dies, Cal gets
the sympathy vote.
Just put that down.
If you love Cal
you won't do this.
I've done everything for him.
If it weren't for me and
the sacrifices I made,
he never would have been
elected Congressman.
And he loves me for it.
He is loyal to you,
but that is not love.
I suppose he loves you then.
Heather, just let it go!
Jamie? Jamie?
Yeah, yeah, no, no.
Listen, can you get me a
live feed patched into my phone?
Right now.
You have ruined my life!
Every time I looked at her
I was constantly reminded
of you!
It ends now.
Heather! Heather!
What in God's name
are you doing?
Put the gun down.
Everything I've done,
I've done for you.
I'm doing this for myself.
Just give me the gun.
[Gun shot]
Daddy! No!
Get her!
Don't do this, Pete!
Sorry, bud.
Do not touch her.
Heather, I know how sad you must
have been to lose Cal's baby.
I know.
You told her he was Cal's?
No, I... it's not
important now!
I've done everything for you.
Everything you've asked.
No in, no out.
Breaking news.
I've got live video feed
from Ethan Fox's smart phone.
Fox is live on the scene-
You better see this!
....Congressman Ward and his
family hostage at gun point.
I still just don't
understand why.
Look at him.
He could never have
been Senator.
Abby, come to mommy.
Just close your eyes.
[Struggle ensues]
Cal, shoot her!
Does someone want to tell me
what the hell is going on?
She is like the one-night stand
that wouldn't go away.
Shoot her!
You don't have
any feelings for her.
She's trying to break up
our family.
You're gonna give up everything?
Cal, don't.
Take Abby and go.
Everything that we've
worked for.
Abby, come here.
Team one in position and locked.
No, we're staying on this.
Just push in and hold.
[Gun shots]
[numerous conversations]
Are you ok?
I think so.
Is daddy going to be ok?
Yeah, he's a big boy.
He'll be fine.
Is daddy gonna win the election?
I don't know.
Maybe he will.
Come on.
Are you really my mom?
Yes, sweetheart.
I'm really your mom.
Abby, I want you to meet Rose.
My little angel.
Can I have one of those hugs?
Alright, I need to get you two
to the hospital.
Give me one minute.
Standing by.
Thank you.
I never would have found Abby
without you.
You're a pretty good shot.
We're a pretty good team.
Interested in becoming a
photographer for an intrepid,
earnest reporter?
Or a bodyguard?
Or dinner?
I'll get back to you.
Your public awaits.
It's not over, is it?
Your story.
I think there's more to tell.
Ok, we're gonna take
that live feed
and be on in three, two, one.
I'm standing in front of
the Novak Medical Centre,
the scene tonight of a violent
involving Congressman Ward,
his wife,
and a woman who would not
give up on her daughter.
For Channel 3 News,
I'm Ethan Fox.
