RANE (20) plays a concert at the Staples Center. Afterward, they go outside to sign autographs. A hand reaches across the barrier and pulls Rane into their crowd of fans. Fans try to take pictures with them as they are dragged down the street and towards an open van. The police are able to stop the MAN who has tried to kidnap Rane, and tells them that they’re lucky they got away.

Four years later, Rane is in therapy and suffers from PTSD after the attempted kidnapping. They ask their PSYCHIATRIST if they can up their dosage for their anxiety meds, but the psychiatrist denies them.

Rane gets a call from their manager GRAHAM about performing at a birthday party in Brazil. Rane tries to get out of it, but Graham makes them do it.
