Jennifer has a burn on her
finger and a hole in her memory. Two detectives are rigorously
interrogating her about a shooting death she witnessed. As she is
cross-examined, her jumbled memories eventually coalesce into a narrative.
A reporter for the trendy
magazine Curb, Jennifer met Clay Martin, a real-estate developer, in an elevator
at her office building. He invited her to a party where she met his best
friend, Alex, as well as Monica. Against his mother's wishes, Alex had
been traveling in search of his real father. Despite the former roommates'
cross words--not the least of which regarded the fact that Alex' ex-girlfriend
was now dating Clay--they soon reconciled. Jennifer subsequently had a
heart-to-heart talk with Alex where the prodigal confided he was on his way home
to deliver yellow roses and an apology to his mother. Afterwards she just
happened to be in the room when Clay shows Alex an antique gun. Although
apparently unloaded, the gun contained a chambered round that killed Alex when
the weapon fell off a desk.
Since Jennifer's story
corroborates Clay's, the police release her. Two weeks after the incident,
she is still in shock and denial. Revealing herself, Monica informs the
distraught woman that God had a purpose for her witnessing the incident, and
that she has a task to complete. Understanding this, Jennifer comforts
Alex's mother and gives her the roses he never got the chance to deliver.
