    • Synopsis
    • It's life as usual at the bar until one customer exits and is shot in the middle of the street. Another customer goes out to help but is shot down as well. Amid the confusion, the people still inside discover that someone has removed the bodies from the street without them noticing. Speculation runs wild until one idea takes hold: What if the danger is inside? And what if the gunshots are to keep them from exiting the locale and putting those outside in danger?
