At the end of a long day, five children look to fill in the remaining hours of sunlight before they return home. Bored, and looking for a new playground; Freddie, Emily, Tom, Michael and Grace approach an imposing, decaying building that has been abandoned for years. The only sign of life are the warning signs, boarded up windows, and wire fences that protect any visitors that stray into the building’s path.
The children’s relationships are recently strained with the new dynamic that their group has. The different age ranges are now beginning to dictate their behaviour and the eldest of the group, Emily and Freddie, are more interested in each other than in their surroundings. The tension this causes between Emily and Freddie’s best mate Tom lead the group into the building to retrieve a misplaced football. Abandoned and distressed, the building stands alone in its surroundings. No other buildings dare approach. As the children investigate the interior, the building breathes, creaking and groaning as if coming to life to welcome the new visitors. Visitors that spend too much time struggling for each others’ attention, instead of noticing the warning signs around them. The building does not want visitors.
Using classic horror motifs and contemporary characters, CLICK discovers why we are afraid of the dark. A discovery that the children make in possibly the last building they will ever enter.
