Synopsis

Successful London photographer Thomas spends his time photographing beautiful fashion models. But one day whilst casually snapping an intimate couple in the park, he thinks he may have photographed something far more sinister: a murder. After developing the photos, Thomas is horrified to find an ambiguous image lurking on the edge of the frame, which could be a shadow, but looks like a gun. The only thing clear is that Jane, the woman in the photo, has appeared at his studio and wants the pictures he took.
