The story of the character Edit
Max was the university professor of Sandy Cohen and father of Rebecca. Max, asks him to find his daughter (that coincidentally was also Sandy's former fiancée, when they were in high school), as he is dying and wants to see his only daughter one last time before passing away. Rebecca shows up, and Max asks Sandy to clear her name (twenty years ago, she was accused of burning down a lab and killing a man in the fire. Rebecca denies that and claims that she fled the site because she did not want to testify against her friends); soon after this, he dies.
