Dopo aver passato la serata con la tua migliore amica, stai tornando a casa, da sola. Non c’è nessuno in giro.
Poi senti il rumore che ogni donna teme. Passi. Qualcuno ti sta seguendo. E si avvicina.
Tu sei sicura che sia lui: il tizio che ti ha importunato al bar. Insistente, molesto.
I passi sono sempre più vicini. Ormai lui è proprio alle tue spalle.
E allora reagisci d’istinto. Ti giri. Spingi. L’uomo perde l’equilibrio e cade lungo la scalinata. Poi rimane immobile, con la faccia a terra.
E adesso? Devi fare una scelta.
Chiami un’ambulanza. Soccorri l’uomo, e scopri che non è quello del bar. Ora devi convincere la polizia, tuo marito, la tua famiglia e i tuoi amici che sei innocente. Che eri in pericolo. Che non hai fatto nulla di male. Che è stato un incidente. Riuscirai a dimostrarlo?
Ti guardi attorno. Nessuno ha visto niente. Te ne vai. E il giorno dopo scopri che l’uomo è morto. E che non era quello del bar. Ora devi solo distruggere tutte le prove che possono collegarti a lui. E mentire, a tutti. A tuo marito, alla tua famiglia, ai tuoi amici. Riuscirai a resistere?
