Their hearts beat faster. Fear begins to prickle through their veins. It’s now or never. Their only chance. Joy and Forever know their decision is irreversible. But their only thought is escape. The dimly lit dance club in the industrial district below the Hollywood Hills is a gilded cage for them. For him as a dancer. For her as a janitor. Both stranded in the dark shadows.
They can be together. But the couple have no hope of freedom without their passports, taken from them and locked away in the safe by their unscrupulous boss.
