After bailing on plans with her girlfriend, Paige comes home late after being out with her friends. To her horror, she discovers that her girlfriend, Melina, has brought home a creature from the beach. The couple fights about the creature, but what they're really fighting about are unresolved issues within their relationship. The creature aka The Wail, tries to stop the fighting but he only makes it worse. Paige gets hurt during the fight and it appears that all hope is lost. The Wail then heals Paige... in more ways than one.
