There is some miscommunication on the issue, as before Nick and Jesse can clear the larger logs off the water, Graham and his friend Jenny, with Pat and Sara at the boat's helm, are water-skiing in the area. Hitting one of the logs, Jenny crashes and suffers what looks to be a serious injury, which requires a full body cast upon her admittance into the hospital. After Jenny initially feels sorry for herself about her situation, she learns from the doctor that she will most-likely regain full use of her upper body with physical therapy, but that she may never walk again. Jenny possibly being confined to a wheelchair brings up the issue of accessibility in all her old haunts. But as Jenny tries to cope with the news of her prognosis, Graham, Sara and Pat all deal with the issue of Jenny in a different way. While Graham goes overboard in trying to push Jenny to the limit in every aspect of her new life, Pat, feeling guilty about the accident, can't even face her. The question becomes whether the four can ever have a "normal" friendship again. Written by Huggo See less
