A “Bryna Foster” FILM
WRITTEN BY Bryna Foster

On the last day of the school holidays, library assistants James and Kelly are the only employees working on campus. James, a young guitarist treats his job as a stepping stone until his band hits the big time. Clumsy 29 year old Kelly has no idea what to do with her life.
When Kelly admits she has been sleeping in the school after being kicked out of her flat, James tries to scare her with some of the supposed hunted history of St Augustine. This includes the ledged of young patient Evan Spencer who kept the teeth of his victims hidden in his room, and the story of evil nurse Clara whose spirit still roams the halls, if you hear her breathing it means your time is up.
Out of boredom James and Kelly decide to investigate the campus, but sometime you shouldn’t go looking for trouble because it might find you first.
