John wants to turn his life around, and that starts with a marriage proposal to his girlfriend. All that’s standing between him and this act is a simple journey on the London Underground. Except that this journey will be anything but simple.
Strange old ladies, apathetic passengers, a nervous Asian man and a deepening sense of unease are all obstacles to overcome, but will John gain redemption and an easy passage? Or, will this train ride lead to somewhere darker, dimmer and altogether horrifying?
