PROJECT DESCRIPTION
A crude, spotlight roasts the bones of a beaten, wronged man – Robert Wade. Bound by hand and foot to a chair, he struggles to set himself free from the dark holding cell where he has been placed without reason.

Searching for means of an escape, he takes notice of his frightening surroundings: a table of hardware tools, a video camera pointed in his direction, and a mysterious stranger watching all of his actions from across the room.

The stranger approaches Robert and shows him an all too familiar photograph – a picture of the Wade family. Frightened yet defiant, Robert Wade spits in the face of the mysterious stranger. Yet his defiance leads him to a path of masochism.

Cut and bludgeoned, Wade endures intense physical torture from the stranger. Knowing he is at his end, Robert attempts the impossible out of desperation – escape.

As the stranger prepares for a complex, agonizing torture-device upon his victim, Robert manages to loosen the knots tied around his hands. Although bound behind him, Wade’s hands move to the seat of his pants, reaching into his pocket for his cellular phone. His only opportunity before meeting death, he feels out the numbers on the keypad and dials 911.

Can the police arrive on time?
