SKY HIGH

The clock is ticking away in this cat and mouse game of twists, turns and subterfuge by Guy Meredith.

It is the early hours of a new day and in a tall office block in London there is a woman working.

She thinks she is alone but then she hears the lift doors open - Emma....Claire Harry

Mark....Chris Pavlo

Charlie....Lloyd Thomas

Directed by Tracey Neale

A tall office block.

Way below a police siren; passing above a helicopter.

Emma hammers with frustration at a computer.

Whatever she's trying to do, it isn't working.

Suddenly, a noise behind her - a Security Guard.

Is everything ok? It's the early hours of a new day, no-one else is in the building.

He's made her jump and she's spilt her coffee.

All's fine and he leaves her alone once more.

A little while later another coffee is spilt as another man bursts in.

How did he get in? What does he want? The two are connected and as the tale unfolds we discover why he is there and what is going on.

But are things quite what they seem?

As we listen to the action the clock is ticking away in real time.

Emma needs to unravel a mystery code in the computer and she hasn't got much time.

Will Mark agree to help her or is he more interested in revenge? He used to work there and would like to settle a score or two.

Can Emma trust him and will she find the code in time? The tension mounts as the minutes tick by...
