When a menacing stranger appears at the door of a theatrical producer's office, the man only has one request: that the producer read aloud a script that the stranger has written. As the "cold reading" unfolds, it becomes clear that the dialogue in the play eerily foreshadows parts of the producer's real life, blurring the line between fact and fiction in this suspenseful yet comedic drama.
