My own experiences and research.

Melissa Day by night is food delivery courier a scooter
at her disposal to give the ravenous public what they
require. But one evening as normal all she expects is just
doing her duty to the next, until. The address harbors a
criminal service Melissa is unaware of and she finds herself
caught between her job and another.

The door comes normally enough or what she thinks it is
until a henchman cannot pay, so she has to go inside to
telephone her employer and explain.
At this residence all seems fine. It's not, far from not.

The henchman unfortunately gets shot in his head and Melissa
finds herself running further into the residence's
structure. A brief respite means she has to calculate besides the
payment what is going on and rationalize.

This scene is a hostage crisis and ransom wait for the leader
of a criminal gang named Leopold.
He's a real "nasty piece of work" in any terms and wants to
know why the dead guy on the ground was shot by,
the other subservient member?

Melissa is trapped inside wondering what to do, but remains
proactive by ringing the police. A general good call.
...Her mobile phone has just run out of power.

She has to think quick pretending to be criminal herself and
act out a con trying to get access at the keys Leopold now
holds because of someone's mess. In disguise Melissa works
out with observation activity that the ransom has now doubled
with demand. The only way out is the vital key Leopold has in
his possession.

She goes for broke and becomes evermore respondent to
Leopold's charisma with finding out, why he's doing this?
A way out is finally there and she has a choice on, who to
help first?
