It’s Friday night in Toronto’s lower west end. Chatter from a dinner party in a nouveau riche condo drifts through an open balcony door, as two freebase cokeheads have a party on their own in the alley below. As the dinner guests leave, the hostess is nowhere to be found. Until, a wet thud and a sharp scream rise up to the balcony. Pretty (Kristen Booth) stares in horror at at the body of Carol (Caroline Cave), splayed on the alley floor, as screams for help are heard from above. The sharp burst of police sirens sends the cokeheads running as a middle aged police officer, sprints from his cruiser to check Carol’s vitals.
