Written and directed by Jon Coley, this film is the seventh episode of eight in the ‘Other Realms’ series of short films, intended to be screened on television. Coley stars as ‘The Figure’, with friend Brian Harding and Brian’s girlfriend Lynn Hackett starring alongside him, to produce this foreboding tale. Coley's mother, Shirley, fully supported her son's endeavours, acting as cameraperson when called upon.

Typically, as for other episodes in the series, Coley chose a Brian Eno and Robert Fripp soundtrack to accompany the live action.
