Sitting in her car, Shelley debates whether she should go in. She knows that’s a Synagogue and though she’s not Jewish, she’s in deep need of guidance from above. This has not been a good year for her. She lost her job half-way through the year and now, though it’s near Christmas, she’s on the verge of getting evicted by her unsympathetic land-lady. “I’ll give you ’til the end of the week and then you’re out.” Her shriek still echoes in her brain.
With a sigh, she exits her car and cross the road, praying she’ll receive a sign from above.
