Dark alley corner, someone gets shot three times.
Down on the ground, slowly looks at the killer.
Suddenly wakes up, it was only a bad dream.
Surviving the day without getting into any trouble. Also finding a wanted criminal, personally dying for a powerful story. A reporter with a lot of guts, with nothing to lose. Close and opens the eyes, sitting in the desk. Holding paperwork in one hand, and picking up calls from the other. The feelings of disappointment with empty leads and no witnesses.
Inside the reporter's mind: Seeing a lot of people just without their faces.
The only faces are shown are the escaped criminals, just wanted posters spread around the city.
The reporter that wants justice, and the biggest news ever. And the police officer. The reporter's personal friend and face of a public hero.
Obnoxious faceless workers started talking bad jokes. That disturbed the reporter's concentration.
The reporter went back to work when suddenly a mysterious call has given the reporter a tip. On where was the wanted criminal. The reporter wrote down the info and called another number.
The reporter called a friend from the police department. Told him where the criminal is going to be. Why a personal friend, instead of the whole police department?
Because the report knows the department has dirty police officers; also doesn't want to go their alone.
As they both got there, the criminal was here. The police officer pulled his gun, the reporter was grateful about the tip.
Just like where the criminal was, the dark alley corner. However, the criminal and police pulled their guns, only one of them fried.
The body was found and sent to the morgue, the victim was shot three times. The body was then identified as the reporter.
