Alicia doesn't think she is a submissive, she prefers to think of herself as being diplomatic, and just goes along with others to keep the peace. She's a demure housewife, and prefers to leave confrontation's and arguments to her husband. Not even at home do they argue, she simply gives in to her husband. Her son is being bullied at school, but as they are both eighteen it will end soon, as they are leaving high school in a few months. Feeling the mother's urge to protect her son, she decides to visit the parents of her son's bully. Her son convinced her to speak to them, as it needed a soft, caring approach, rather than a confrontation.
