Presumed Guilty

Lola arrives in town for a job interview – turns out, it was never scheduled... Someone wanted to bring Lola here, but why?

Lola is excited. She is invited for a job interview at a hotel in a new town – a big step for the young woman. But things go from odd to strange when she shows up for her interview and learns it was never scheduled. It gets more mysterious by the minute when Lola notices people keep staring at her.
