The Rear Window

Write a story where the main character, due to their circumstances, becomes a voyeur to an escalating incident.

In a nod to Hitchcock’s film, ‘Rear Window’, the character must observe from a restricted viewpoint a situation which grows more tense with each passing day. Perhaps they witness a crime, an argument, or suspicious behavior. How does this limited perspective create tension and paranoia? How does the character try to piece together a narrative from fragments of informaion?
