Theodore (Theo) Lane has a new obsession – Andy Reese.  She’s been watching him (and filming him for her documentary) for several days now at an NYC café, and when she finally gets up the courage to talk to him and hears his sad story, she can’t resist helping him.  Andy has been waiting for a girl – the love of his life – to show up, but she’s late by about 4 days when Theo decides to track her down.  Oddly, Andy can’t seem to remember many of the details of their one, amazing date, but with Theo’s assistance, he starts to retrace his steps.  As they get closer and closer to finding the mysterious girl, Andy’s behavior gets more and more erratic.  And, despite her determination, Theo starts to wonder if she really knows this Andy at all.  A suspenseful, psychological thriller that starts off sweet and innocent, then becomes confusing and terrifying.
