Tailgate is the unnerving story of Luke, a young man who awakens in the boot of a car with vague memories of the night before. Neither he nor the Driver of the car seem to know why he is there, but the Driver, an outwardly cold-hearted contract killer, is not taking any chances.

The Driver’s instructions are simple; travel to the location and in three days, kill the man in the boot. But why is Luke in his car and who supplied the orders? Imprisoned with only a slither of light, Luke desperately attempts to gain control by attacking the Driver’s conscious. The Driver, however, is running on a frenzied instinct and further instructions given by a mysterious caller. Death seems inescapable until they arrive at their destination and the boot is opened, but is either man actually prepared to face the reality of their situation?
