As the paperboy makes his round, he is unaware of the chrome red van idling up the hill ...Soon the residents will be caught up in a game of wills as the regulators arrive in force to face a child whose powers of expression are just awakening.If you like THE REGULATORS, don't miss DESPERATION, written as an unidentical pair.
