SCENE OPENS to a dinner, where Carson (Ryan Driller) and Kim (Dee Williams) have invited their goddaughter Kelly (Natalie Brooks) and her parents George (John Legendary) and Eleonore (Kiki D’Aire) over for a home-cooked meal.
As the dinner progresses, Carson and Kim grow concerned for Kelly as her parents do and say questionable things towards her, scolding and body-shaming her. When Kelly is eventually slapped on the hand for reaching across the table, a withdrawn Kelly excuses herself to use the bathroom while Carson and Kim agree that they cannot hold their silence any longer.
Carson and Kim confront George and Eleonore about their behavior towards Kelly. George and Eleonore become defensive, reminding Carson and Kim that they’re only Kelly’s godparents and have no say in how they raise Kelly. When Kelly returns, George and Eleonore get up with her and leave.
Left alone in the aftermath of this disturbing situation, Carson and Kim decide that THEY could treat Kelly so much better if she were THEIRS. They exchange a silent agreement: George and Eleonore need to be out of the picture. For good.
CUT TO TITLE
A few weeks later, Carson, Kim, and Kelly all walk into the same home together with Kelly’s suitcase. The atmosphere is solemn. It turns out that Kelly’s parents were killed in a freak accident just a few days before and that she’s staying with Carson and Kim for support.
