In this short scene, we are introduced to a young man named jamal cooper, who is married to a girl named Rose. He is a bachelor and has never celebrated his birthday before. He asks his father if he has a gift for him on his birthday, and his father replies that he does. He then tells us that his daughter, named claire, has written a letter to him, but that he has forgotten to put the letter back on the table where it was kept. He tells his father to go out and look for the letter, but his daughter is too embarrassed to do so. She tells him that she will give him the letter the next day, but he is curious about the contents of the letter.
