Down the Road is the intense drama of a serial killer and the married couple who agree to write his biography. Dan and Iris Henniman (played by Ryan Brewer, previously seen in Patient A, and Amanda Finfrock) are trying to treat killer and rapist Bill Reach (played by Bret Swanson), like any of their other subjects. They fight to stay emotionally unattached while "hyping the gore", and to not react to Reach's sickening narratives. But eventually, they must question their book's place in a decadent culture obsessed with violence. Once Iris begins to speculate about Reach's motives, he becomes an inescapable and haunting presence in their lives.
