SYNOPSIS:
Julia Illsley is caught in the middle of a battle of wills. Her daughter, Rebecca, was taken from her outside of school in broad daylight and she has been forced by the kidnappers into retrieving a much sought after object from a man with obvious and dangerous criminal ties.

Now that the task has been complete, and there is literal blood on her hands, the real test of her strength will be called to the front as she heads towards to the final exchange; to get herself and her daughter out alive.

JULIA ILLSLEY – Female: 30-40 ~ LEADING ROLE
Julia considered herself to be an ordinary person, capable of only everyday things. But raising her daughter on her own, and having her priorities change with her, has pushed her into realizing she has no idea what she can do if required. Now with her daughter in danger, Julia has forced herself into killing a man to get her back. She’s come this far, she’s not going to give it up now.

REBECCA ILLSLEY – Female: 5-8 ~ SUPPORTING ROLE
Rebecca is a quiet child, one who doesn’t react expectedly in the face of danger and uncertainty. In these respects, if in no others, she’s a spitting image of her mother.

LEAD KIDNAPPER – Male: 25-35 ~ SUPPORTING ROLE
A tall, imposing figure, only viewed with a black mask covering his face. Leaving his eyes exposed, they tell his whole personality. Dark, forceful and unforgiving.

SUPPORTING KIDNAPPERS – Males: 20-40 ~ SUPPORTING ROLES
More imposing figures, dressed darkly, lying in wait until the lead instructs them otherwise. They are the threat in the shadows to Julia. They are all about waiting for the ticking time bomb to go off.
