Wait Until Dark is a story about the many sides of darkness. The darkness of the mind of a killer, the darkness that comes from being physically blind, the darkness of dangers unseen and the simple darkness that occurs with the flip of a switch.

This thriller, directed by TAPA veteran Dan Phillips, focuses on the recently blinded woman Susy, whose whole world has become dark as the result of a recent accident. Happily married to Sam, her photographer husband, both are unaware that he has unwittingly brought a doll filled with heroin into their home. With Sam away on a photo shoot, Susy is left home alone to meet and greet Mr. Harry Roat and his two henchmen Mike Talman and Sgt. Carlino, who connive their way into her home by pretending to be someone they’re not. With the aid of her precocious neighbor Gloria, who has taken the doll for herself, Susy eventually realizes that no one is who they say they are and that her life is in imminent danger. As we watch Susy struggle to survive, she uses the only weapon she has against the men and we join her on the roller coaster ride of her life where all of us eventually plunge into the darkness together.

This show is not recommended for younger children.
