I stare at the vine-covered barn with its rotting wood, wretched roof, overgrown barnyard. A door opens and a woman runs from the building as a man holding a pistol steps into the opening. Her body stiffens as she stops, clutches her side, then falls to the ground.
I hear the soft clicks of a camera and turn toward the bearded photographer standing by my side. I do not need to see the proofs. I know he’s captured the perfect shot for the posters advertising “Death in the Country”, my new movie which is due to be released in June.
