Following a devastating tornado, Wallis Higgs, an eager first time EMT, spots a survivor, a man  she knew in her youth. He sits amidst debris, in his neon painted rocking chair, unmotivated to find safety. In her attempt to rescue him, she learns more than she'd like to know. When he finally allows her to "save" him, it is she who is saved.
