Kim’s life is flashing before her eyes, but not in a good way. In fact, she’s dying, and her life’s history begins to unfold in her mind. She’s a child again, playing games with her brother, Paul.

She’s a child again, playing games with her brother, Paul. Then she’s at school, suffering from bullies and an oppressive loneliness. There’s her first kiss- the first rejection- her first humiliation at love - they all come flooding back into her fading vision. We see the beginnings of the adult Kim – the temper-prone, altruistic, trusting, stubborn adult she is to become. There’s her first attempt at sex and the utter humiliation that follows. Her second attempt fares no better and sets the pattern for her future life of romantic disappointments. She works as a Park ranger and, later, in an escort agency – this latter employment reaping horrible repercussions in years to come. But, in the present, there’s Kenny, who insists on showing his feminine side when least expected, (coupled with the maximum inconvenience), plus a treasure map to be followed that leads to a brawl with a bunch of pre-kindergarten hoodlums. For sure, life is never dull when Kim is around……..
