A flashback into the beginning stages of Bill and Amber’s relationship, when things were fun and carefree, quickly transforms into Bill’s need for power and control over Amber. He controls where she goes, how long she can spend away from him, and even gets mad when she doesn’t text back instantly. Amber’s friends are finally fed up with the abuse, and reach out for support from the school counselor. He gives Amber’s friends a resource for getting safe, but Amber throws away the brochure out of fear that Bill might see it and further retaliate. By now, most people know the relationship is abusive and want to offer support to Amber.
