The time is 12 AM.  The ground, full with the uncontrolled tears that the sky above has been shedding since the day began, is as slippery as it wet. Pitch dark blackness covers the entire vicinity, and  the night is chilly cold. The scene is an isolated area in the sleepy university town of Abraka in Delta State…

A lone figure is hiding amidst the tall shrubs in the bushes surrounding this remote and isolated street, defying the heavy downpour and the blackness and coldness of the night. His intention is as black at the very night itself…

A Final Year Student of Sociology is restless in her room, her eyes unable to find sleep because fear has eaten deep into the very fabrics of her soul…
Miles away in another sleepy town not too far from this university town, a terrible nightmare abruptly wakes a mother from sleep….

In a secluded hideout in this same town, three boys have perfected their plans and are now ready to embark on a journey, the outcome of which is destined to set in motion chained reactions of proceedings that would lead to events that none of them nor their parents would have predicted…

The stage is set for the drama to unfold…

The clock is ticking….
