Trial Run

Rosemary didn't know how fast she could run... until she had to run for her life. There are three things that matter to Rosemary Edmonds (Annie Whittle). Her family, running and photography. In the middle of intensive training she is unexpectedly offered her first professional photographic assignment and is forced to leave the reassuring surroundings of the home that has been so much a part of her life and move to an isolated beach house. The change is dramatic. Strange neighbours unnerve her, strange sounds surround her, tales of the cottage's dark and ghoulish past haunt her and an unseen tormentor plagues her day and night. Refusing to be frightened, Rosemary distracts herself by working harder; running faster. Until finally one night, alone and terrifed, running becomes much more than just a refuge from fear...it becomes a matter of life and death.
