SYNOPSIS: Based on the novella by Stephen King, THE GINGERBREAD GIRL tells the story of Emily, a woman hiding away from the world in her father’s vacation home in a small beachside town in Florida. Struggling to cope with the loss of her daughter, Emily channels her grief into a grueling daily running regimen. She avoids most people in town, but on one of her mornings runs she meets the dashing, mysterious Jim Pickering – a wealthy man living in the high-end part of town. He convinces her to have dinner with him and his much younger girlfriend. Jim seems decent, but the following day as Emily passes his house, her curiosity leads her to find the dead body of Jim’s girlfriend in his trunk. Before she can escape, Jim knocks her out and holds her captive in his home. Desperate to survive, Emily manages to break free of Jim’s house. With Jim in close pursuit, Emily uses her skills as a runner to stay one step ahead of him — but for how long?
