Two journalists from rival newspapers, The Daily Herald and The National, wait outside a suburban house for a woman who is said to have had an affair with a high-profile minister. A photographer from The Daily Herald is with them to get a photo of the girl. Unfortunately, they don’t know if this is the right house—or, indeed, whether this is even the right girl. And with The National‘s journalist being told by his editors that he’s not to come back until he has a story, and The Daily Herald‘s being told that he has to stay until The National‘s leaves, the trio settle in for what promises to be a long wait. At which point the decide that they could just as easily make the story up…
