Synopsis
We begin a series of scenes introducing the various Allison Adams's. MISSING ALLISON (9), a young girl, bikes through a neighborhood and approaches a fork in the road. She takes the path to the right and disappears into the woods.

A woman gives birth in a hospital, helped on by NURSE ALLISON (34). The baby is delivered, but it is a dead, premature fetus. Nurse Allison looks on, horrified, but we then realize this is just a vision, cutting to reality where a healthy baby is delivered.

CHEERLEADER ALLISON (16) returns home, washing out her mouth in panic. She takes a shower in a fetal position, terrified, while her mother tries to enter, inquiring about what’s wrong.

DINER ALLISON (49) mans the counter at her diner, accidentally burning toast while distracted by a gossip magazine. A business man enters saying that he’s just hit an animal outside. They go investigate and find a deer writhing in front of the car. Diner Allison shoots it dead.

Nurse Allison enters her apartment, where her mother KIM (60s) sits with her son HARRY (6), who is asleep. They watch news coverage on the kidnapping of Missing Allison, and Nurse Allison remarks at the strange coincidence of them...
