A revival and revision of a short film made in his youth, David C. King’s Picklock follows a man, woman and cat one shadowy evening in San Francisco. Amid stories and reports of increasing numbers of missing people and pets from around the city, we find our characters making their way through an average day. Something seems to trouble the couple as they remain distant even within the comfort of their small apartment. Unnoticed by them, something emerges out of the murky fog to invade the safety of their home. Will they emerge unscathed or will they join the ranks of the missing?
