Synopsis part I and Part II
Frank wakes up in the middle of the forest and thinks he has had an accident and was thrown from the car. He can’t move very well and thinks his cell phone has been thrown free. He is a big executive making about Twenty Million dollars a year. He decides to try to help himself so he makes his brain connect with a useless arm. It begins to rain and Frank unconsciously moves his hand to wipe the drops away. He can now use his arm and moves it carefully to try to find his cell phone. He manages to find only a Bic lighter. He is also starting to remember some events of the evening and recalls driving a young assistant named Patty home. Frank would like to believe he behaved himself but deep down knows that is probably not the truth.
