In this scene Beth Ann fights to stand again, after being almost comatose for two months. She finally realizes that Kaylob is missing in Vietnam, although she’s been told he is dead. But she never felt him die. She refuses to believe he’s dead. But just the knowledge that he’s been gone for two months hits her in this bathroom. This is the very moment she comes to grips with the fact that he might not ever come home again.
After a few seconds, she opened the bathroom drawer and calmly took out the scissors, then she began cutting her hair one strand at a time. An ominous silence swept through the room as she sliced off her hair and jabbed her scalp. From the silence came a wave of pain. The only love she had ever known had been gone for two months. In that moment, she realized all her dreams had to be abandoned.
From the ashes of war, her love might never return.
