The Other Side of the Door: What If

This is a scary movie and this scene is really intriguing. I hope you like it.

What if is usually used in the beginning of a question, when we ask about the consequences of an action. We use what if here to indicate present or future situations.

For example,

What if there is no fish in the ocean? You won’t be able to fish for the family
What if I go home earlier? You will miss all the important decisions of the meeting.

Watch the movie segment  and say how the main character would probably answer the question. Follow the examples above.

What if I could bring your son back to you just one more time?
What if I could give you the chance to say your final goodbye?

Work in pairs: Think about two possible answers.

Make a guess based on the evidence provided by the segment: What if she opens the door?
