Drama. An intensely private man lives by invading other people's privacy. He is known as one of the best, if not the best, surveillance men in the business, but his mistake is becoming involved with the current objects of his surveillance, a young man and woman, who seem to be in great danger. In listening over and over again to the tapes he has made of their conversation, he becomes convinced that he must help them before it is too late, a lesson he has learned from a previous job which ended in great tragedy for the people being observed.
