While driving in the lonely road, she talks to her sister Ella and decides to take a detour to visit the Grand Canyon. Out of the blue, the truck stops and Mallory can get no service in her cell phone. However the gentle drifter Christian Laughton offers to fix the car and Mallory accepts. Then she offers a ride to him and when she is driving, he says pornography to her. She asks him to leave but he shows a knife and tells her to go to a derelict motel. Mallory sees that the psychopath Christian is not wearing the seat bell and decides to throw the truck off the road in a curve. But the leg of Mallory is trapped in the overturned car and Christian leaves her without any help, in the beginning of Mallory's worst nightmare. Will she escape from the vehicle and from the psychopath?

the rest of the drive.

Besides, you seem nice enough.

You don't know me that well yet.

I'll take my chances.

Do you mind?

Signal's terrible,

but the CD works.

You can tell a lot about

people by what they listen to.


Yeah, it's a mix.

My sister made it for me.

Kind of to poke fun.

I don't know what you mean,

I love this song.

Right? How can you not?

She's back at home, your sister?

She's finishing law school

back in San Francisco.

That must have been

tough to leave her.


She'll be all right.

She is the perpetually

single type.

Different guy every month.

No ties.

Do you have her number?


But then you'd have

to get a phone.

Yeah, the thing she didn't really

realize was that she was stuck.

After our parents passed away,

she was just... Sorry.

No, no. Don't be.

Feels like you need to tell someone.

Might as well be a stranger

you're never gonna see again.

What about you?

What about me?

You can't always

have been a hobo.


Hey, where are you guys

going on your honeymoon?


Brad's boss has a house there.

That's lucky.


Tell me about him.



He's great.

He's smart.

Interesting. Driven.

On our first date,

he rented out the entire restaurant

and said he didn't want anybody

disturbing our first chances

of getting to

know each other. So.

He sounds like quite a guy.

Yeah, it wasn't as lame

as that sounded.

No, I'd... Listen, it...

You wouldn't be here if it was.

Moving across the country.

Giving up everything just to be with him.

You're almost rid of me.

Last chance to get on the

freeway for about 50 miles.

I never asked

where you were heading.

Next town over.

There's a little motel there.

Quiet, inexpensive.

As good a place as any

to spend the night.
