When carsick Bella (Coco Lovatt) vomits on a farmer’s metal driveway it leads to an angry confrontation between the farm-woman, Bev (Jennifer Ludlum), and Bella’s mother, Lisa (Sophie Henderson). Bev accuses Lisa of violating her property, while Lisa accuses Bev of lacking empathy. Both women are staunch in their self-righteousness.
A little further down the road, a discussion between Bella and Lisa about empathy leads them to return to Bev’s house with a small bunch of wild daisies as a peace offering. Bev receives the flowers wordlessly, but later we see this simple gesture of true compassion allowed Bev to reframe the incident more positively.
