TeMoune and Daniel

In this scene, after the peasant girl and wealthy boy are brought together
as a result of a car wreck brought on by the gods, she cradles the injured Daniel
in her arms. They sing a duet together as she imagines him well and happy,
healed by her love. Unfortunately, the image of Daniel through the scrim
is about to be replaced by Papa Ge -- the demon of death.
