With all the hoopla surrounding Katie's operation, Sarah decides to blackmail her grade 12 English teacher into having sex. She lures him out and into a cafe. At 12 o'clock, the grand finale: a scalpel runs across Katie's breast, marking the beginning of her televised mastectomy. But just before she slips off into sleep, she sees the angelic boy watching her. Meanwhile, a riveted nation watches, but a worried husband can't. Ari counts the seconds alone in a waiting room. He doesn't wait long; he is soon joined by his own father, two sons and only daughter.
