The Hook:

Tell us a story of debts. Tell us a story of travel. Tell us a story of both.

A man travels through the city, on his way home to his family and friends. He stands to watch a street performer, laughs and claps with the rest of the crowd. When the time comes to pay the performer they all walk away. Money destined for treasures for their own kin. The traveler laughs at the performers plight. Not noticing the darkness in their eyes or the almost feral grin across their face. A few coins would have stopped the blood shed.
