Bad Medicine from Mum
The story begins at a hospital. Diane Sherman (Sarah Paulson) is waiting for word from the doctors after her baby was born prematurely. She sees her baby, Chloe, and asks the doctors whether she will be okay when she is brought into the room. They don’t respond to her.
Eighteen years later, Chloe (Kiera Allen) is a bright young woman who suffers from arrhythmia, hemochromatosis, asthma, diabetes, and paralysis, necessitating the use of a wheelchair. Diane looks after her and she takes a variety of drugs. Chloe is also interested in technology and repairing household items.

Chloe convinces Diane to accompany her to the movies. She excuses herself to visit the restroom, but really takes advantage of the chance to dash over to the drugstore.
