Conner, a young boy whose desire is to have his father back, is tasked with finding someone who is missing. He stumbles upon another of The Man's clients whose task is to disappear for 3 weeks in order to gain her desire to accept her disabled child as she is. They end up talking - him about his father, her about her family - both learning a lot in the process. They end up making a deal that, when she's ready to be found, he can be the one to find her. The Man asks Conner why he doesn't just tell someone, since that would fulfill his task - and she might break her end of the bargain. He replies: "She said she wanted to be a good mother. How could I stop her from that?"
