One on One

Sarah, a runaway teenager in the city of Metropolis, encounters a persistent newspaper reporter who won't leave her alone until she agrees to an interview for his newspaper column. Ten questions -- that's all he asks. In their moments together, the fragments of her tragic life emerge, but her anger towards superheroes and Superman himself explodes in full force. If he is so great and so powerful, why is the world such a horrible place? Why doesn't he do something about it? Does he even exist? In the end, the two realize that even when there are no easy answers, it's possible to "look up in the sky" with hopeful eyes.
