This cue from the film Against Time had a more spoilery title on the album, of the form “[Character Name] Dies”. These days I lean towards the view that track titles shouldn’t reveal plot points like this unless the person dying is, say, Julius Caesar. But I will reveal that a beloved character is hit by a car as an unintended consequence of a heated argument. The music first follows the growing tension of the fight, with mournful woodwind solos over a prolonged bass pedal, then shifts gears at the tragic moment.
