TV Dinners

The TV dinners are symbolic of a treat that exists only occasionally for Mr. B, and the dinners provide a clue that he is holding Madison hostage.

The Strings

The strings Madison ties onto twigs around the cabin are symbolic of her desire to be rescued, even though she cannot put that into a coherent thought at first. The strings are one of several clues that bring Naomi to the cabin where Madison has been held hostage.

Madison draws her mom in the dirt floor of the cellar where she has been held, and she lies on the drawing when she needs comfort.
