Juliet narrates that they were heading to her parents wedding which was planned within a month. People were happy for the wedding not knowing it was there last days. Upon reaching the River Enziu, they found it was so flooded unable to cross. They waited upto four hours so that the river can calm down. Four different buses passed well while they were watching. They decided it's there turn to cross. Those with small private cars left them and joined the bus so that they can cross together.

Unfortunately they didn't get to reach the other side as the bus fell into the river. Juliet watched as all her sisters drowned in the river. Juliet says that before they crossed, they were dancing and having fun. It seemed like a farewell party. The sisters have now left children under the care of Juliet.
