Plot[edit | edit source]

Rodric (Evan Jones) is a University student dealing with a recent diagnosis of complications in his blood. After taking the prescribed medication, Rodric starts to experience vivid hallucinations that effect the relationship with his flatmates, Sara (Camilla Karlsson) and Edgar (Ryan Shawn Lewis).

After Rodric visits his Doctors, his medication dosage is increased, making him desperate to find out what his constant hallucinations mean. As he starts to think he knows what they mean, Rodric sets out at midnight, where he collides with and injures an innocent woman, Leslie (Marcia Tucker).

As Leslie travels back home in agony she tells her son Chris (Sheldon Philbert) about the incident, fuelling his anger and desire to pursue the identity of the man responsible for injuring his Mother.
