The Ellises' home
|The Ellises' home|
Eden abandons her burning house.
Before she was known as Eden McCain, a poor girl was abandoned by her father and verbally abused by her stepmother. The derelict woman claims Eden's father left because of Eden. One night after years of being trapped in her house doing thankless chores, Eden finally snaps. She shouts, "I wish you would just die!" at her stepmother. At that instant, her stepmother's heart stops, and her cigarette falls and lights the house on fire. Eden is forced to flee with nothing, and she starts her life anew.
- Eden's house is about 125 miles from Salt Lake City, UT, and 240 miles from Las Vegas, NV. As these two cities are about 363 miles away from each other, this places Eden's home somewhere in Utah, probably near Fillmore, UT (144 miles from Salt Lake City, and 277 miles from Las Vegas), along Interstate 15.
The young girl does dishes in her kitchen.
As Eden leaves her burning house, Eden's driver takes her west.
