A gullible girl from Minnesota comes to New York to become an actress. She has a lesson with an acting coach/therapist to help her get over her fear of confined spaces. This is no ordinary acting coach, however. When he invites her down to his basement to face her fears, that's when the screaming starts. A short horror tale that builds to a shocking climax.
