A whitewater rafting trip is underway, with 3 long-time friends on board. Leading the trip is the bold adventurer, Juno (Natalie Mendoza). Also there is wife and mother Sarah (Shauna Macdonald) and her closest friend, Beth (Alex Reid), both British. Awaiting at the end of the raft adventure is Sarah's husband, Paul (Oliver Milburn) and daughter, Jessica (Molly Kayll).
JUNO: More to the left.
PAUL: Can you see her?
JUNO: Look out!
JUNO: Hey, guys!
SARAH: Hi, Jessie! . . . That was amazing.
JUNO: You girls were screaming. . . . That wasn't so bad, was it?
BETH: No, that was a piece of piss.
After their exciting ride, Juno raises her oar as a celebrated victory. Beth uses her oar to shove Juno in the water, everyone laughs. Paul helps Juno out of the water.
PAUL: Bit more.
BETH: Go on, Paul, fish her out.
PAUL: There, got you.
Beth and Sarah exit the boat onto shore.
BETH: You all right?
JUNO: It's freezing. I can't feel my fingers.
Sarah goes to her daughter and hugs her.
SARAH: Jessica, come here. . . Oh, baby.
Paul helps Juno with her gear, they share a strange moment, and then he's ready to depart.
PAUL: Come on, Jessie, it's freezing. Let's go back to the car.
SARAH: Go with your daddy. I'll just help the girls.
BETH: It's okay, you go on. We can finish up here.
SARAH: You sure? . . . Thanks guys, I'll see you at the hotel. Yeah?
BETH: Yeah. See ya.
Paul and family are now on the road. Sarah is leaning to the back seat talking to Jessica.
SARAH: Jess, when we get home, shall I phone Rachel's mum? See if Rachel can come over Thursday?
SARAH: Yeah? Okay. When she comes round, she can help us plan your birthday party.
SARAH: You gonna invite any boys this time?
SARAH (to Paul): Are you okay? You seem a bit distant.
PAUL: I'm fine.
Paul is looking at her, not the road. A car heads straight for them, a head on collision. The crash sends a metal rod right through Paul's skull.
A bird's eye view shows the wreckage. Below the van and in the rear seat area, blood collects in a pool on the pavement, indicating the daughter was also killed.
Sarah has the first in a series of dreams where Jessica appears in a party dress and seems to offer Sarah a birthday cake.
Awakening from her injuries in the accident in the hospital, Sarah panics and runs down the hallway, imagining the hospital getting dark around her.
SARAH: Jess? . . . . . Jessie?
Returning to reality, she runs into the arms of Beth, who embraces her and they both weep.
BETH: Shh! I'm sorry. . . She's gone. I'm sorry!
SARAH: No, no, noooooo!
BETH: She's gone, Sarah.
Juno, standing in the distance and also crying, turns and leaves them.
