The Dawn

Following the murder of her family at the hands of her father in the wake of World War I, a young woman is sent to live in a convent. However, the demons that plagued her father follow, reawakening the nightmares of her past.

(water splashing)
– What am I supposed
to be looking for?
All I see is dirt.
– The first part of
respecting nature
is understand it.
The soil, has stories to tell.
It has lessons to teach.
We become it.
– How do you know all
this great grandfather?
– My father taught
me the importance
of the world around me.
Now I’m teaching you.
My father gave it to me.
He said it was a barrier
between good and evil.
– Does it do something?
– I saw it save
my father’s life.
(wood tapping)
(water splashing)
– Thank ya.
So remember,
we’re gonna keep it
positive today, okay?
Okay, thank you Rose.
(triangle ringing)
William!
Supper!
The children are waiting!
(hammer tapping)
(wood clanking)
(hammer thuds)
What have we told ya?
It isn’t polite to stare.
Even if it is your father.
Thought we agreed?
No tools at the table.
No work.
– I was fixing the mailbox.
– Right.
Now grace.
Would you like to lead us?
– Dear Lord, bless
us and these gifts
for these I give what
you’re about to receive
from thy bounty through
Christ our Lord, amen.
– [Family] Amen.
– Thank you Rose.
I hope we all
understand how important
it was to thank our Lord.
I mean, we’ve been
given many obstacles,
but each meal is a blessing.
Each day is a blessing.
(thunder crackling)
(ominous music)
(people whispering)
(utensils clicking)
(guns firing)
(man shouting)
Here.
Will you let me help ya?
– Don’t touch me!
Let me bleed out!
Let me bleed.
Let me bleed out.
I said let me bleed!
Hank.
– What happened?
– What is wrong with him?
– Your father is sick.
– Did he hurt you?
– No I’m not hurt.
Just finish your dinner okay?
Finish your dinner.
(rhythmic beating)
(clock ticking)
– Lay me down to sleep,
I pray the Lord my soul to keep.
(ambient music)
(ominous rumbling)
(clock ticking)
– William.
No, please!
It isn’t real!
Please, it isn’t real!
(skull cracking)
– Hank.
I can do it Hank!
I can set you free!
I can’t let you hurt anymore!
Listen to me!
No, don’t go back there.
They’re only gonna hurt you.
I can free you.
– I’m not Hank Papa.
– I’m the pathway to God.
Listen to me!
I can set you free.
– Rose!
(William grunting)
Run Rose!
Run!
– [William] I am the pathway
to God, listen to me!
– Run!
– I can’t let you kill Hank!
(gun firing)
(people chattering)
(birds chirping)
(camera shuttering)
– Looks like we figured out
where those gunshots
we heard came from.
– Yup, looks like it.
– I used to have to drive
him home drunk after the war.
Said he used to see things.
I always figured
it was the whiskey.
Quanah here brought him
home a few times too.
Did William’s wife see this?
– She’s passed on too.
– The kids?
– Same.
– Oh my God!
– Except for his eldest.
– Where is she?
– [Wilson] I don’t know Sarge.
– Let’s find her.
Now!
Now, now!
Rose!
– Rose!
(solemn music)
– Rose!
– [Wilson] Rose!
Rose!
Rose!
– You don’t have any
other family, do you?
Aunts or Uncles, Grandparents?
Anything?
– No.
– You have nowhere to go?
– No.
I’ll find somewhere on my own.
– No.
Not without family and not
with winter approaching.
Look, there’s a place I know
of, a couple of states away.
I spent some time there
as a child myself.
If you don’t have
anyone to stay with,
better than the state
putting you in an orphanage.
– What is it?
– Well, reminds me of a castle.
– Like in Europe?
– Yes, a lot like that.
– But with no wars?
– I can assure you,
there’s no war there.
– The wars did this.
– I know.
If you go, you won’t have to
worry about anything like that.
Okay?
It’s a good place,
it’s a good home.
(faint church bells ringing)
(door slamming)
– Henry.
There’s something I think
you need take a look at.
– What might that be?
– This morning a girl
was taken to Saint Johns.
She lost her family.
– That’s not unusual.
Not now.
– It’s the circumstance.
I think you need to
take a look at this.
– I’ll be in touch with
the Reverend Mother.
I know her well.
(ambient music)
– You must be Rose.
I’m Reverend Mother Agnes.
I’m told you’re going
to stay with us.
(slow paced music)
(light gentle music)
– [Theodore] Start
at the beginning.
– [Rose] You mean my childhood?
– [Theodore] Yes.
– We’ve been through this.
You know my childhood.
– Your self-doubt stems from
more than just your father.
– I don’t like
thinking of my father.
– But you do.
– Of course.
Every day since I’ve been here.
– Surely there was
more to your home life
than your fathers illness.
– Reverend Mother calls
them dreams, not an illness.
– We agree on many things,
but psychology is
not one of them.
The intricacies
of the human mind
are one field where
I feel that not only
are we still learning,
but so is the Lord.
– The soul grows as it should.
– That’s correct.
Have you considered
taking your final vows?
– Yes, of course.
All the time.
– But you’re not ready?
– I feel that I could do more.
More for the church,
more for the world.
I hear about the
worsening situation
with Europe, in
Germany, and in Austria.
Isn’t there something
the church can do?
– We pray for them.
But first, we must remember,
all action begins
with one person.
– Who?
– That person is you, Rose.
(church bells ringing)
– Good afternoon Sister Rose.
– Sister Ella.
– Oh, I believe the first
frost has gotten to Jeremiah.
I think he gets to most
people more than they think.
– You know, he
barely speaks to me.
Ever since he arrived,
he just stares.
– Maybe he thinks you’re pretty.
– No.
He’s confusing me with you.
Besides, you know
it’s inappropriate.
– I wouldn’t give
it much thought.
I’m sure he’s harmless.
I mean if he weren’t,
Father Theodore would
never have invited him here.
– I suppose you’re right.
– Yeah.
– You know, you must do
a prayer session today.
– I was busy.
– Busy?
– Well, after much
contemplation,
I believe I’m ready.
I’ve decided to
take my final vows.
– Already?
– It’s been eight years Rose.
It’s time.
– You’re right.
You know,
it’s been really cold lately.
– Nothing that a good hot
cup of tea won’t solve.
– Yes but,
my cup is frozen solid.
(slow paced music)
– Inner peace, is the best fire.
Come on.
– I saved you a seat.
– Thank you.
– Sisters, please
settle in your seats.
And fold your hands.
Before we begin our dinner,
Father Theodore would like
to share a blessing with us.
– Thank you Reverend Mother.
Please bow your heads.
In the name of the
Father, and the Son,
and the holy spirit.
Bless us O Lord
and these thy gifts
which we are about to
receive from thy bounty
through Christ our Lord, amen.
– [Sisters] Amen.
– We have so much
to be thankful for
in the warm embrace of God.
His gifts surround us.
His wisdom surrounds us,
it nurtures us each day.
Even an old man like myself
learns something new every
day because of our Lord.
– Amen Father.
– God wants to tell you
what you want to hear.
You just have to be
willing to listen.
Now speaking of gifts,
let us all enjoy
this communal supper.
– The soup smells
especially delicious.
– [Jeremiah] Excuse me.
– It’s a perfect
way to stay warm.
May I pour you some soup?
– That would be
lovely, thank you.
– [Jeremiah] Can you
pass the rolls please?
(water running)
(metal clanking)
(hissing winds)
(hissing winds)
(ominous music)
– Hail Mary full of grace,
the Lord is with you.
Blessed are you among women,
and blessed is the fruit
(metal clanking)
of your womb, Jesus.
Holy Mary, Mother of
God, pray for us sinners
now and at the hour
of our death, amen.
– [Man] Rose.
(eerie music)
I came for you.
(light gentle music)
– Is something troubling you?
– No
– You’re simply occupied.
– It’s cold.
Feel.
– Okay.
– Do you feel it?
It’s freezing.
– I’m sure it is a
reasonable explanation.
– But I’m not freezing.
Every day it gets worse.
– Have the nightmares returned?
– I’m not my father,
if that’s what you’re implying.
– Dreams Rose.
Just as with your father,
they were only dreams.
It’s how we react to
them that matters.
When you first came here we
embraced you as one of our own.
Yet, there are certain things
you still choose to face alone.
Even in your room,
you’re never alone.
The Lord God is all around us.
You lost your family.
God is your family.
We are your family.
– Thank you.
– And a last piece
of advice for you is,
get some rest.
– I’ll do what I can.
– Goodnight Rose.
– Goodnight Reverend Mother.
(ominous music)
(clock ticking)
(gun firing)
(woman screaming)
– [Man] Looking for you.
Looking for you.
Looking for you.
(bones cracking)
(Rose screaming)
– [William] I’m
not gonna hurt you!
(flies buzzing)
(clock ticking)
– Cold.
(ambient music)
(gentle music)
For 10 years, the
dream remains the same.
The nightmares feel so real.
As if I’ve awoken
in another life.
Each day I question my reality,
and each day it grows harder.
I worry one day I’ll wake up
unable to distinguish
this life from the other.
I only hope in writing
down my thoughts
and drawing what I see,
that I’ll be able
to save myself,
should it come to that.
– How is it?
– What?
– The tea, how is it?
– Oh, it’s cold.
– You’re a lot like
Father Theodore.
– [Rose] How do you mean?
– The tea’s never good enough.
Not like he has any
basis for comparison.
I don’t think he’s
been more than
five miles from here
since he was 12-years-old.
We all have our story though.
Lillie, she had a husband
and he lost all his
money in the crash.
He put a gun in his mouth.
Sister Ella, she found Jesus
in the bottom of a bottle
and never came up.
Their mistakes all
brought us to salvation.
– My fathers mistake
led me here, not my own.
– Are you at peace with
your father’s mistake?
– [Rose] Nice speaking
with you Jeremiah.
– What was Jeremiah
talking to you about?
– [Rose] Traveling.
– Have you ever traveled?
– [Rose] Before?
– Yes.
– No, just from my
family’s home to here.
– Where was that again?
– Western Pennsylvania.
You ever been there?
– No, I can’t say that I have.
Just South Carolina to here.
– Well you’re not
missing much, so…
How was South Carolina?
– Life wasn’t very
welcoming for me there.
I saw some bad things,
and I almost let them
get the best of me
until one morning I woke up,
no home,
no place to go,
and I knew I needed to change.
– [Rose] What did you see?
– I think that’s a conversation
best had at another time.
This is a new life.
– We cannot allow
ourselves to be judged
by the misdeeds of our past.
– Sister Lillie is right.
– Sounds to me like you’re
running from your past.
– No.
Absolutely not.
Making peace with your past
and running from your past,
are two different things.
Maybe that’s why
you’re not ready
to take your final vows.
– You don’t have to
be condescending.
– I only want
what’s best for you.
For everyone for that matter.
If you need my help
moving on from the past,
I can help you.
But ultimately,
it comes down to one thing.
– What thing?
– You.
The Sisters can only
take you so far.
But your willingness
to surrender to God,
is a choice only you can make.
I learned that being here.
And that’s how I
intend to live my life.
– You’re right.
– It’s not about being right.
It’s about peace.
– Bless us O Lord
and these thy gifts
which we are about to
receive from thy bounty
through Christ our Lord, amen.
– [Sister] Amen.
– Since the frost
came, I can’t breath.
The air dries my throat.
Every morning when I wake up,
I feel like I can’t speak.
– Dear Rose, it sounds
more like you need a
doctor than a confession booth.
– But it’s not
that kind of dry…
I feel alone.
I feel frozen.
– Tell me about your
last night at home.
– All I remember is the
pain in my fathers eyes.
“Kill me.
“Kill me” he used to say.
– What else?
– There was a rhythm.
Consistent.
Like a clock.
(clock ticking)
– A clock?
– Not something you’d
see on the wall.
Something else.
Tick, tock,
tick, tock.
My world’s falling apart
but my heart is steady.
It was at ease.
Is this a sin?
Should I have been that calm?
– That calm is what
saved your life.
I have felt your regret
since you arrived.
But rather than it disappear
over the years, it’s grown.
– I’m sorry Father.
– God meant for you to
have these emotions.
They’re ultimately a test.
Designed to
strengthen your faith.
– I don’t care, I’m so
happy to be out of the cold.
– Sister Ella, Sister Lillie.
Sister Ella.
– Showing up late to
take all the credit?
– What?
– Don’t listen to her.
– I need to ask
you guys something.
– Of course.
– Have you noticed anything
strange around here?
– Well everything around
here seems normal.
Now when I was at Saint
Christopher, that was strange.
– It’s painfully normal.
– The cold is painful.
– I’m used to it.
– So no?
– Are you okay?
Rose.
I’m not going to hurt you.
– I know, I’m sorry.
Old habit.
– Well you feel fine to me.
Rose, when I was younger,
I lived by a lake.
And I watched my brother
fall through the ice.
We would cross the
lake as a shortcut
and he’d always go ahead.
I heard this dry crack,
(ice cracking)
and he was gone.
Swallowed.
(somber music)
He died that night
of hypothermia.
That’s when I knew
hell was cold.
If you’re not feeling well,
ask for the doctor.
Don’t just sit in
your room and hide.
– Okay.
– Good.
Let’s go.
– I can’t distinguish
dreams from daylight,
memories from nightmares.
I’m seeing things
that aren’t there.
I’m hearing things
that don’t exist.
At the moment
Father, I feel that,
you’re the only one
I can confide in.
Father.
Father?
(Rose gasps)
– Sorry Rose.
– Hi Jeremiah.
– [Jeremiah] I didn’t
mean to startle you.
– Do you know where,
where Father Theodore is?
– Yeah, he’s preparing a
sermon for midnight mass.
– No, he was just here.
I was speaking to him.
– No, well I’ve been
here for over an hour
and you were in the
booth when I got here
and you’re alone.
– He’s not here?
– No he’s not here.
– Were you listening
to my confession?
– I tried to ignore it but,
I’m on floor duty
this week, so…
I promise I won’t tell anyone.
You can trust me.
– [Rose] I have to go.
– If you truly believe something
strange is happening here,
you have to determine if it’s
something with this convent,
or something
centered around you.
– Let me pass Jeremiah.
– I’ll let you pass, but you
have to answer the question.
You can’t ignore it.
– It’s me.
It’s always been me.
– That’s why you haven’t
taken your final vows.
– [Rose] Yes.
– And you’ll admit it to me
but you won’t admit
it to Father Theodore.
– You’ve seen more of
the world than he has.
– Well yeah, there’s
something here.
It’s not inside you,
it’s part of you.
It’s part of the flesh.
– It’s my father.
– Maybe.
It’s shared, it’s reborn in you.
You can go.
Go.
(light humming)
(clock ticking)
Show trust O Lord,
that those who love Your
name will exalt in You.
(ghostly moaning)
(clock ticking)
(demon hissing)
(ambient music)
(clock ticking)
– [Man] Kill them.
(clock ticking)
– [Henry] A demonic
presence was drawn
to my attention years ago.
– [Man] Looking for you.
– [Henry] We were so
close to casting it out.
– Time to get the
ritual started!
(speaking foreign language)
(heavy breathing)
– [Henry] This is
the blood of Christ!
(Rose grunting)
The precious blood of Christ!
– No!
– [Henry] I cast you out!
Fight it!
(deep ominous music)
(utensils clanking)
– Where is she?
– I don’t know.
– I’m worried about her.

(Rose screaming)
– Sister Rose!
(heavy breathing)
– I’m sorry.
Mother Reverend, I apologize.
(speaking in foreign language)
– Rose!
Reverend Mother is
looking for you.
– I’m sorry Father,
I’m not feeling well-
– You need to rest.
You’re clearly exhausted.
– You’re right.
I am, I just–
(demons whispering)
(ominous music)
I–
– [Theodore] Rose.
– I’m sorry Father.
– Rose!
Rose!
(clock ticking)
(demons whispering)
(bones cracking)
(deep ominous music)
(Rose grunting)
(speaking foreign language)
(heavy breathing)
(Rose screaming)
– Please, please Jesus.
(coffee sipping)
– I never cared for
your choices of tea.
– And that’s two.
– Two?
– I told Rose that we only
disagreed on human psychology.
Apparently I’ve
inadvertently lied to her.
We also disagree on tea.
– I’m sure you’ll be forgiven.
– I would hope.
– What did you
and Rose speak of?
(Theodore tsks)
– The details of confession
are strictly confidential.
– I’m concerned
for her well-being.
I know what it’s like to
have a past that follows you.
– That’s what it was.
Her past.
– She carries it
on her shoulders.
Sometimes I can almost see it.
– You aren’t much different.
– The bottle
was my vice.
Gambling was my vice.
I never met my parents.
I’d call to call on Father
Henry to evaluate Rose.
– Henry doesn’t specialize
in troubled young women coming
to terms with their past.
He specializes in something
that you and I don’t see.
– I don’t know if I’m right,
but if I’m wrong,
I’d rather treat her early.
– Childhood trauma isn’t a
reason to assume we need Henry.
This isn’t the 1600s.
– There’s more to it.
– [Sisters] Come
and embrace me Lord.
Hold me secure.
Hold me strong.
Hold me forever.
In Your everlasting arms, amen.
(clock ticking)
(whisperings in
foreign language)
(angelic singing in
foreign language)
(speaking in foreign language)
(singing in foreign language)
– Amen.
– [Theodore] Peace be with you.
– [Congregation]
And also with you.
– I would like to
welcome everyone here
for this celebration
of the solemn profession
of Sister Ella
to the holy spirit.
It is an important moment for
our community, Sister Ella,
and of course our church because
it is a moment of witness.
A declaration of vows in faith,
which represents a
small inkling of hope
the world sorely needs.
Dear Sister, are
you now resolved
to unite yourself
more closely to God?
– I am.
– Are you resolved
with the help of god
to undertake that life
of perfect chastity,
obedience, and poverty
chosen for themselves
by Christ our Lord
and His virgin mother,
and so persevering it forever.
– I am.
– Are you now resolved
to live alone for God
in persevering prayer,
in willing penitence,
in humble work and
holiness of life?
– I am.
(ambient music)
(ominous music)
(ice cracking)
(ominous music)
(Rose screaming)
– [Rose] No, no, no, no!
(speaking in foreign language)
– [Henry] Fight it Rose!
Fight it, please!
Fight it!
Fight against it Rose.
Fight the evil Rose!
(heavy breathing)
(bones cracking)
(skin sizzling)
– Good morning Father Henry.
(ominous music)
– [Henry] Where is Theodore?
– He’s hearing confessions.
(Henry chuckles)
We need help.
We need someone
with your expertise.
– Last time you called on me
we performed an
exorcism on an alter boy
and his parents sent
him to an asylum.
– He was a quiet boy.
Innocent.
I found this in my room.
There were more in the hallways
and other rooms.
Have you ever seen
anything like this before?
– I’ve seen crosses
fly off of walls.
I’ve seen them
turned upside down.
I have never seen
anything like this.
This looks like someone
tossed it under a combine.
You have a source?
– It’s Rose, Henry.
(ominous music)
– I’d like to meet with her
as soon as possible.
– Of course.
– Father Theodore.
Father Theodore are you here?
(Rose sobbing)
Father Theodore.
– [Theodore] Yes my child.
– Forgive me Father
for I have sinned.
– I don’t know how long it’s
been since my last confession
because I’ve lost
all sense of time.
I don’t know past from present,
I don’t know right from wrong.
– Go on my child.
Set your worries aside.
No one can hurt you here.
God will protect you.
– I haven’t been
entirely honest with you.
I’ve been seeing things.
I’ve been hearing things.
I’m cold inside but,
my skull is burning.
I have visions of memories
that aren’t mine.
I should be in mine,
inside of time.
– God has laid a special
path for each of us.
The test is physical,
but also mental.
Focus on your breathing
and listen to your heart.
That is a special bond
between you and God.
It beats in rhythm
and He hears it.
– The rhythm.
(clock ticking)
Like a clock.
Steady.
Steady.
Tick, tock,
tick, tock.
(water dripping)
– I cast you out!
Out of this daughter of God!
Out of this child of Christ!
– When you were younger,
an altar boy named Christopher
came to me with
similar symptoms.
– [Henry] By this
blessed holy water!
(heavy breathing)
– [William] Kill him!
Kill him!
– He complained of
fever when he was cold.
He claimed to hear voices.
See visions.
But there was nothing there.
(Rose screaming)
– [Rose] Father!
Father please!
Father Theodore!
– Soon he became destructive.
We called in one
of my colleagues
with an aptitude for exorcism.
Father Henry.
(Rose gasping)
– [Rose] Please!
Father Theodore!
– It was the worst pain I’d ever
seen another human being in.
– No!
– It would writhe, and twist,
and scream profanities.
The closest thing that
I could compare it to
would be, from what I
understand of childbirth.
Given this situation,
(Rose gasping)
it was rebirth.
– [Man] Kill them!
Kill them!
Kill them!
(Rose screaming)
(Theodore grunting)
– Have you seen Rose?
– Not since choir rehearsal.
– Something’s wrong.
– What is it?
– I don’t know.
But something’s
definitely wrong.
(Rose gasping)
(Rose coughing)
(Rose gasps)
– Quanah,
Quanah, I need your help.
Please, I need your help.
The others have failed me.
God has failed me.
Please don’t let me
(ominous music)
become my father.
Please, don’t let
me become my father!
(footsteps approaching)
– Sister Rose.
What is this?
– A prayer.
– It doesn’t look like
any prayer I know.
Looks like a pagan ritual.
Worship the earth in witchcraft.
– It’s not.
Don’t tell anyone that it is.
– I won’t.
Reverend Mother called
in a specialist.
He’d like to speak with you.
– What is it?
I’m confused, you have to
tell me what’s going on.
– I don’t know, I
can’t explain it.
But it’s Rose.
(Sisters gasping)
– Oh Father help us!
Oh my God.
– Did Rose do that?
– I hope not.
– No, no thank you.
– [Jeremiah] You’re
freezing, at least hold it.
– God, I feel like I’m burning!
– Well what do you think it is?
– I don’t know!
Whatever it is,
it took my family,
and now it wants me!
So maybe I should just
go see this specialist!
– [Jeremiah] Well
he’s aware of you.
He’s known about you
since your childhood,
since you were brought here.
– Why?
– Precaution.
Have you seen any of the signs?
(Lillie sobs)
– Who was with him in here last?
– I think it was Rose.
– Where is she?
– She wasn’t at the commissary.
– You don’t think
she did this do you?
– I certainly hope not.
Ella, Lillie, leave
this place at once.
Go to Saint Jude’s
two towns over.
– [Lillie] Of course.
– Thank you Reverend Mother.
– [Reverend Mother]
Quickly, please!
– What signs?
– Unseen voices,
slip from reality,
hunger pains,
sensitivity to light,
but most importantly,
you’re a virgin to spirituality.
– Wait, a virgin?
– You’ve been here
since you were a child
and you’ve yet to
take your final vows!
Why?
– Father Theodore says
it’s because of regret.
– Regret?
– Yes.
– Regret is an emotion.
It’s not even real,
it’s not tangible.
Why have you not
taken your final vows?
– Look, I don’t know
what you want me to say!
– Whatever shares your
body is restraining you.
It’s something else,
it’s something living.
– You’re mad.
You’re frightening me!
Stop it!
You’re frightening me!
– What I saw you
doing isn’t anything
a child of God would do!
Worshiping the earth?
People were burned
alive for less!
I’m saving your soul Rose!
These walls are thin!
You killed Father Theodore!
(Rose grunting)
There’s evil within you!
You’re a freak!
You’re an abomination!
– [Rose] No!
No!
– [Henry] Let us continue.
Dear God, let her
pray for your love
and light to come into her.
Oh dear Father, may
she be your child.
Dear Jesus Christ,
(Rose screaming)
Redeemer and Savior,
forgive Sister Rose of her sins.
Just as you forgave
Peter his denials.
As you forgave those
who crucified You.
Lord, forgive her of her
sins and her transgressions,
we gravel at her repentance
and her tears of sorrow.
(Rose screaming)
A fight against the powers
of darkness in this world.
Help us against the rulers
of hell in high places.
Dear Lord, help us.
The spirits of wicked
faith in high places!
(heavy breathing)
And rulers and
principalities in power,
(Rose screaming)
and spirits of darkness!
Help us Lord!
– Help me!
– [Henry] The spirits
in high places,
help us to fight!
(clock ticking)
(Rose screaming)
(stairs creaking)
(ominous music)
– [Rose] What is this?
Help me!
– [Henry] Jeremiah!
– What is this?
Where am I?
– Where you’ve always been.
– In the convent.
– [Jeremiah] This room.
– What?
Where’s Reverend Mother?
– You’ve been here all
this time, many years.
We’ve tried nearly everything.
– Where’s Reverend Mother?
– She’s dead!
– You’re lying to me!
(Rose grunting)
– [Henry] Fight it
Rose, you must fight!
Fight it!
– Oh my God.
(heavy breathing)
(Jeremiah speaks too low)
– What?
What?
My book.
My book!
I drew in my notebook!
I draw, I draw, the
outside of this room.
I draw outside, I draw animals,
they’re peaceful.
I’m at peace.
Please.
Please.
Please.
Please.
I draw.
– I don’t see forests!
I don’t see happy
little animals!
Does this look peaceful to you!
(ominous music)
Look at it!
– No!
No!
No!
– [Jeremiah] Look at it!
– No!
No, no, no, no!
– [Jeremiah] You’ve been here
since your family was killed!
– [Rose] No, no, no, no!
– [Henry] Fight it Rose!
Fight it!
Please, fight it!
(Rose grunting)
The rulers of
darkness in the world
against the spirit of wickedness
in high places!
(Rose growling)
(Rose screaming)
(solemn music)
(Sisters and Henry
speaking foreign language)
– [Jeremiah] Father.
– It was blessed by the Vatican.
It wasn’t easy to get.
– [Jeremiah] Desperate
times Father.
We’re all here with God.
– I cast you out.
(water splashing)
(Rose screaming)
Out of this daughter of God.
Out of this child of Christ.
By this blessed holy water
and by the blood of Christ,
Redeemer Lord, Savior,
remember not her sins
as you forgot
the betrayal of Peter
and those who crucified You.
Count not her transgressions,
but rather, her
tears of repentance.
Remember not her iniquities,
– Damn you!
– [Henry] but for her sorrows
for the offenses she has
– Damn you!
– [Henry] committed
against thee!
(Rose grunting)
– There’s something in,
there’s something in me!
It’s within, it’s a man!
(Rose gasping)
(ominous music)
– Rose.
Rose.
(Rose gasping)
Rose.
(somber music)
I’m sorry I wasn’t
there to watch you grow.
I was in pain,
and I let it defeat me.
Don’t let it defeat you.
Don’t let it defeat you Rose.
I love you.
(tense music)
– All of the days of her life!
Be cursed with the
power of Christ!
(Rose grunting)
I cast you out!
(Henry grunting)
(metal creaking)
Lord Jesus Christ!
True light!
That it lightens
every man and woman
who comes into this world!
Blessings upon these
earthly candles,
and enlighten them with
thy heavenly grace!
(speaking foreign language)
(heavy breathing)
– You want this?
– Quanah.
I trusted you.
I trusted you!
I told you about my father.
– I am not who you think I am.
– No!
– And now you’re
gonna burn with this!
(Rose screaming)
– Inner peace is the best fire.
(glass shattering)
(ambient music)
For 10 years now, the
dream remains the same.
The nightmares feel so real.
My only hope in writing
down my thoughts
and drawing what I see,
that I’ll be able
to save myself.
(somber music)
(fire crackling)
I pray the Lord my soul to keep.
– All aboard!
Last stop, Long Island!
(horn blowing)
(demons whispering)
(ominous music)
(train whistle blowing)
(deep ominous music)
(tracks clanking)
(train hissing)
(train whistle blowing)
