Following eight years of working as an assistant for renowned author Richard Westfield, Sydney proudly presents him with the manuscript of his very first novel. Westfield, unimpressed with his writing, criticizes the book with a complete lack of objectivity, prompting Sydney to angrily quit his job. But after Westfield publishes the book under his own name and achieves great success, Sydney feels utterly betrayed. Sydney simulates a nighttime robbery to recover his stolen manuscript. Once the innocent victim, he slowly transforms into a ruthless perpetrator who will do whatever it takes to prove he’s the real author.
