Synopsis

Five students fall in with a murderer while hill trekking.

Isla, a university undergraduate, escapes to the hills for a few days before her finals. Meeting up with fellow students Pearl, Stephan, Tamara and Rory at a hillside bothy, they encounter loner Brendan crossing the hills on his mountain bike. Isla senses that there is something strange about Brendan, but the others dismiss her fears.
The following morning, Stephan, Tamara and Rory go on ahead. Pearl, recovering from a hangover, is lectured by Isla about her lifestyle while Brendan stalks them, then bikes on ahead to stalk the other three. When Rory injures his ankle, Brendan offers to take him back to the main road on the back of his bike. Rory accepts, and when Brendan coldly murders him a little later, we know that the others are destined to suffer the same fate.

A story about how a group of students, living in an academic bubble, can be so trusting that they make murder easy for a psychopath.
