Be careful what you wish for…
A bickering couple, THOMAS and NATALIE, are stranded on a deserted, country lane, because their car has run out of fuel. After deciding to try and find a garage, they become lost and disorientated, and eventually happen upon a creepy looking SCARECROW. The scarecrow has an ominous sign around its neck which reads ‘Do Not Touch’ and, although Thomas is nervous and cautious, Natalie becomes intrigued by its apparent mysticism and is prepared to ignore the stark warning with chilling results.
