Storyline

Successful businessman Paul Radin invites three people from his past to join him in the underground bunker he's built under his commercial office building. All three have had major influence on him though not the kind that made him what he is today. His former military commander had him court-martialed; his former teacher ridiculed and humiliated him in class after she caught him cheating; and his church Minister who ruined his reputation after he drove a girl to suicide. All he wants from them is one thing: a brief apology. The impact of what they've done is far greater than it appears. Written by garykmcd

Joseph Wiseman plays a successful businessman named Paul Radin who has invited three people from his past(played by Gage Clark, Katherine Squire and Trevor Burdette) to join him in his bunker located in the basement of his skyscraper office building where he plans to punish them by perpetuating a hoax of nuclear war to convince them to apologize for their perceived wrongdoings done to him. He is surprised when they refuse to go along with the plan and apologize, preferring the possible nuclear war than being with him, which is an awful truth that his fragile psyche may not be able to accept... Strange episode is quite interesting to an extent, but morally muddled, since it is unclear which (if any) of the characters we are supposed to root for...
