While waiting for the water to recede, Zain has time to photograph all the poses he needs for the new series. As they are work together, each is becoming aware of the other on a different level. Zain and Rose have to go over the hills on an antique tractor, dragging a hay trailer to get food for the humans and all the critters. Rose hitches a ride out on a helicopter before either can sort out thier feelings. Their lives take numerous turns before a second chance presents itself.
