Thomas Wade, a man employed by criminals to clean up their messes and dispose of dead bodies, arrives at a motel to do just that. Finding two dead bodies sprawled out on the floor, he calmly takes out his supplies and begins working on them. Suddenly, a cough is heard from the bathroom. Thomas goes to check it out, only to find a man still breathing. Thomas is now caught in a struggle between choosing to do the right thing, and sticking to a code he's been living by all his life: never care for the victims. Never leave until the job is done.
Filming will take place on the weekend of March 22nd. Both the Saturday and Sunday. We may also need a third pick-up day the following weekend (29th) or we would have it on the 25th (Tuesday).
The motel is in Burlington, and the bathroom is a built set on the Oakville Sheridan Campus.
