In the early morning hours of July 29, 1995, 13-year-old Thad Phillips has been kidnapped by a vicious torturer. If Thad is to survive he’ll have no one to count on but himself. When his captor leaves for a date, Thad drags his body to the staircase. The pain will cause him to pass out on the way down. He only hopes he can make it to the telephone before his kidnapper gets back.
