Synopsis: Andrew seems ordinary as he prepares for an evening out. He carefully shaves, styles his hair and selects the perfect outfit. As the hour grows late he decides to make the final preparations by examining his tools for the night; duct tape, rubber gloves and a large hunting knife. Andrew plans to haunt a bar in order to ensnare an unsuspecting woman, but finds that this is more difficult then it appears. He is starting to lose hope of finding someone, when someone finds him… Sarah notices Andrew as she is sitting alone in the back of the bar. She strikes up a conversation with him. Last call arrives and Sarah suggests that they get a motel room. At the motel, Sarah is flirtatious, but Andrew quickly dismisses her advances and instead begins to give in to his dark impulses. He produces the large hunting knife and forces Sarah to cower in fear. She begs him to let her go, but he rebuffs her at every turn. Finally he moves in for the kill. Andrew wavers. Sarah catches this hesitation and sees an opportunity. She begins to talk to him, in a confident voice about murder…and how to get away with it. She can help him to be a better killer if he will only listen. These “lessons” take the form of flashback’s to Sarah’s haunted past. What unfolds is a diabolical game of cat and mouse, and a soul bearing confession of love and death.
