17 Year Old Boy
Raymond Vargas (as Jamil Z. Smith)
Texas Ranger #2


When Allison Dubois sorts crime scene photos of a shooting, she is convinced that she actually knows what has happened. She's a prospective law student working as an intern in the office District Attorney Manuel Devalos. She's convinced her dreams are visions - and she sees dead people standing around her bed. Her engineer husband Joe suggests that she send the various scenarios to the relevant law enforcement agencies to see if anything comes of it. Joe is confident that nothing will - until Allison gets a call from Captain Kenneth Push of the Texas Rangers. Push is skeptical to say the least but she manages to convince him by identifying a crime scene and her knowledge of Push's medical condition. Written by garykmcd
