As one of Ashley’s kidnappers secures the final knots of her tight rope bondage, the other makes a blocked phone call to Ashley’s rich and powerful father, informing him that one of his daughters has been kidnapped. The kidnapper demands a ransom of $350,000 for the release and safe return of Ashley Anderssen and that no authorities be informed of this little transaction. As the kidnapper hangs up the phone with Ashley’s father, he wonders if he has made the right decision. Surely Ashley is worth much more than $350k. The two men wonder whether or not they should just keep Ashley for themselves and find another helpless young lady to use as their ransom.
