THE STORY: It is late at night on a high bridge over the Hudson, where a lone man watches the dark river slide silently by. A stranger appears, whistling for his lost dog, and a conversation, casual at first, begins. Enigmatically the man tells the stranger that he has been waiting for him, and then relentlessly, his probing, taunting questions and revelations drive the shaken stranger perilously close to the man's sinister intention—his suicide. A sudden turn of fate spares him, but then a second man appears and the game begins again—this time, perhaps, to reach its fateful conclusion.
