Description

Directed by David Colwell

A Broadway hit, this taut thriller is a tight rope walk from one suspenseful moment to the next. Susy Hendrix, an independent blind woman, unwittingly comes into possession of a doll filled with drugs. Three ex-cons attempt to retrieve the doll by deceiving Susy into thinking that her husband has been implicated in a murder and finding the doll is the key to proving his innocence. Their deception unravels as they are unprepared for the heightened intuition that takes over when sight is taken out the equation. A deadly game of cat and mouse ensues leading to a heart-stopping finale.
