Sandra is the harried manager of a fast-food restaurant. One morning a man calls her at work; he tells her that he is with the police and a customer has accused Becky, one of her employees, of stealing. He requires the young woman to be searched before the cops can come to pick her up. Sandra takes Becky into a back room and unquestioningly follows this request. By manipulating Sandra's ego and Becky's fear of authority, the faceless stranger subjects Becky to increasingly frightening and demeaning acts, even getting other employees to take part in the phony interrogation. It takes an entire day before another person takes a stand and gets the real police involved, and they discover that catching the perpetrator is a complicated task.
