Home. Welcome home banner. Grandparents (holding a baby girl) and younger brother greet sister

Grandmother - 'Welcome home! You look great!'

Sister - 'That's sweet. Thank you, Grandma. But I was only gone for a few weeks.'

Grandparents are sitting down at the table. Sister is standing in front of the table.

Grandpa - 'Why are we celebrating? Once you have Tuberculosis, you always have it.'

Sister - 'That's not true, Grandpa. The nurses said TB is 100% curable'

Sister is sitting down.

Sister - 'All I have to do is take all my meds for the next 9 months. Then I'll be completely cured.'

Close up of sister.

Side by side shot

Sister - 'And don't sweat it, Jimmy. You can't catch it from me anymore.'

Brother is asking her a question.

Jimmy - 'Did the treatment hurt?'

Sister - 'Nah. They took super good care of me. The worst part was the food.'

Close up of brother

Jimmy - 'You're pretty upbeat for someone who just got out of the hospital.'

Brother is in the background. Sister is pointing towards audience.

Sister - 'You bet. TB, you couldn't keep me down!'
