Synopsis of Recorded Radio Drama

Jamie has been visiting a friend in the country. It is late at night, and a summer storm is in full swing. Regardless of the storm, she attempts to drive home to the city. Along the deserted highway, a few miles from her friend's house, her car runs out of gas. She decides to start out on foot in search of help.

Instead of help, she walks up on a murderer dragging the body of his victim from a car. The murderer gives chase, but Jamie eludes him and makes her way to a lonely bus stop. She rushes, panic stricken, into the small shelter and quickly bolts the door behind her. The bus stop is deserted except for one lone passenger waiting for the last bus. The girl gasps out her frightening experience.

The man offers protection until the bus is to arrive. He questions her very carefully about the details of what she recalls of the identity of the murderer. In a flash of lightning she sees a man's face pressed against the window of the outside door. This 2nd Man is allowed to enter by the 1st Man. Now, the girl must make the decision about which of these two men is to be trusted and which is to be feared.

Finally, the bus arrives. The 1st Man decides not to get on the bus, and the girl decides to stay with him. The 2nd Man leaves on the bus. The lights go out and the 1st Man brings out a flashlight. He lets Jamie hold the flashlight. She recognizes the flashlight as her own, which she dropped when she saw the murderer dragging the body from the car. Jamie realizes then, too late, that she has made the wrong decision. The 1st Man murders Jamie and leaves the bus stop. We assume he returns to finish his business back at his car.
