Renée: the woman born again [Jessie Leong & Jack Tyson]
The Final Renée : the woman born again
"It is 1950 something and the woman is alone."
"The woman coolly looks around her. No one knows about her day."
"The woman is contemplating the prospect ahead of her."
"The woman has become restless."
"And out of the water, the re-birth begins..."
"And out of the water the woman floats to the surface."
"She stands tall, a grace amongst the waters."
"The woman stands with purpose."
"The metamorphosis has begun."
"And out of the water, the woman is alive."
