Flashbacks are shown of a heated argument between couple. In the heat of he argument she is seen pushing him in anger. Smashing vase with (unique, standout) flowers in it. Shots cut in and out of Simon and Sam performing on a quiet road. With an out of focus car, crashed and smoking in a ditch behind them. Smoke from the wreck heavy thouhout the scene, creating dark atmosphere. As hook one approaches. The woman gathers her things and leaves. Getting in her car with the man pleading for her to leave. Teary eyed, she continues to drive away as the man gives chase.
