SILENCE ON SOUND TRACK

NARRATOR:

This is the story of 90 minutes in

He seems to be enjoying the ride until the cell phone lying

on the seat intrudes upon his privacy.

THEO:

The caller I.D. on the cell phone reads "ANONYMOUS."

THEO:

LENORE'S VOICE

THEO:

Who is this?

LENORE'S VOICE

You mustn't hang up.

PRODUCTION NOTE:
WE NEVER CUT TO THE OTHER END OF THE LINE.

WE REMAIN WITH THEO AT ALL TIMES.

THEO:

LENORE:

I've been trying to get someone --

anyone. For hours ...
