Williejohn is the Ticket Meister, a man with a gift. He has an eye for the vulnerable, the mentally-dishevelled, and the hapless lost souls of the streets. Soon, Williejohn comes to believe he has an unknown stalker who is a threat to him, and he becomes erratic, fretful, and paranoid – there is undoubtedly a person shadowing him and an inevitable confrontation looming… but with whom? Who is Williejohn’s shadowy nemesis?
