An infusion runs through the tube as Demi Lovato sits up in the hospital bed. Underneath a disco ball, she has several drinks at the bar. Back in the hospital, a doctor checks her pupils. The backseat of a car blurs as she sits inside, her eyes fluttering.
Fluids drip into her body as she sleeps in the hospital bed. She texts on her phone as she walks in a hallway. A twentysomething man hands her a duffel bag as she sits on a bed. She unzips it. The twentysomething man stares at her and rolls her over on her side in bed. He walks out of the room. A twentysomething woman walks into the bedroom and rolls a lifeless Lovato.
The emergency medical technicians check her vitals in bed. She lies on a gurney as they put on an oxygen mask on her. A nurse dabs her face. Lovato puts her head on her head as stars shine behind the hospital bed. Family members visit her and cry. A nurse sponges her back. Using a sponge, the word survivor appears tattooed on her neck. She gets up from the hospital bed as the disco ball turns over her.
