Lena, the transcriptionist, sits alone in a room far away from the hum
of the newsroom that is the heart of the Record, the big city newspaper for which she works. For years, she
has been the ever-present link for reporters calling in stories from around the
world. Hooked up to a machine that turns spoken words to print, Lena is the
vein that connects the organs of the paper. She is loyal, she is unquestioning,
yet technology is dictating that her days there are numbered.
When she reads a shocking piece in the paper about a Jane Doe mauled to
death by a lion, she recognizes the woman in the picture. They had met on a bus
just a few days before. Obsessed with understanding what caused the woman to
deliberately climb into the lion’s den, Lena begins a campaign for truth that
will destroy the Record’s complacency and
shake the venerable institution to its very foundation. In doing so she also
recovers a life—her own. Download and start listening now!
