Arani visits a war memmorial and meets an old woman in a wheelchair named Ellen, who has recently lost her husband, who was wounded in World War II. Ellen tells Arani that she is uptight and neds to enjoy life. Arani accompanies her to Bryant's for a pork sandwich, a Kansas City Royals game (where a man catches a baseball and gives it to Ellen for George Grett to sign), a Buddhist temple, and convinces Arani to use her power to save people from a burning building and face the crowd of harassers. Finally, they go to a fountain, which is Ellen's chosen place to die. Arani returns home and gives the autographed baseball to Cliff.
