         Based on the short story from the collection Nailbiters, written and adapted by award-winning and bestselling author Paul Kane, this tells the story of Andy Brooks - a man who wakes up in a cell and is consequently interrogated for information he claims he doesn't have. But, as the torture escalates - performed by the sadistic Torturer himself - it eventually becomes apparent that there is something else happening aside from this battle of wills. Also a play and soon to be a comic book. 

Written by Paul Kane
