 The awkward and morbidly troubled young man is seeking deliverance from his chaotic

 and abusive home and an emotional tug-of-war between Vickiís unstable younger brother

and his wife. A virtual stranger to Bobby, Vicki is no stranger to the family nightmare from

 which Bobby is fleeing. She left it behind years ago to retreat, like her nephew, into her

own cocoon. For Vicki to open her door to Bobby means opening a door to her own past,

 her own pain, and the secrets that have shadowed her.

In a moment of compassion, Vicki lets Bobby in.
