The scene opens up with a Officer Hardy investigating a disturbance call and his phone rings. Before he can answer, he gets shot. Officer Hardy sees a blurred vision of a man walking towards him. Clara is meeting with business men and one of the men tells that he will pay $12.50 a share and Lightman is helping Clara out. She negotiates that it is going to be 13.00 a share and nothing less. After the meeting, Clara is happy that she only has to pay Lightman $10,000 and make millions of dollars. She wants to know how Lightman does it and to teach her. He tells that she is going to have to pay $50,000 for that and she negotiates him to $45,000. Lightman gets a call from Reynolds telling that Officer Hardy was shot but he is still alive. But he is paralyzed and cannot move or talk. He needs Lightman’s help to read his eyes. Lightman meets Reynolds and Captain James of the Police Department. The housing was a Federal Housing Unit complex and that is why the FBI are involved in a police shooting. The mission for Lightman is to read Officer Hardy’s expressions to what happened when he can’t hardly move his eyes...
