From NEVER EVER LAND

Sam also puts out his hand to feel the rain.
SAM
It was her idea? She thought of the
rain?
Amber nods gravely. Sam considers the idea; he wants to
believe it but finally he rejects it.
SAM
That’s crazy. You’re making it up.
The way you made up that stuff
about ‘the way things used to be.
It’s what you want to believe, not
what’s true.
AMBER
So what? It could be true, Sam.
Some things are... why, they’re
truer than true.
SAM
Truer than true? What’s that?
AMBER
Well it’s true, Mom loved us, isn’t
it? And it’s true, she would want
to give us something really great,
something really special.
SAM
Like rain in the desert?
AMBER
She couldn’t give us the ordinary
stuff most kids get -- like clean
sheets and hot baths and fried
grilled cheese sandwiches. But she
could still give us something --
something to keep us going.
