Isabelle's Eyes Synopsis
Young teen mom, Rosy Grace, and her dad share a cabin on a river. The morning sun always shines on their distinct blue-green eyes. Following a discussion with her father telling her he is not her biological dad just two or three days away from her 4th month of pregnancy, the baby lets out its first thrust kick onto the young teen a few hours before she is forced to give up the life of her baby. She ends up in the hospital telling her doctor of the discussion with her father. The doctor disagrees, knowing her all her life and there never being any blood tests because of her father's fear of the results he may find. The doctor tells her, "It's in those eyes, Rosy. They tell all." It is all too much for her father and he ends up in the hospital. Rosy's memory being faltered to three influential men determining the fate of Rosy's mom in this country, she travels a journey reflecting upon her past. She addresses her unborn child one more time.

trees towards the door.
He’s at work.
