Driving home in a winter storm. Low visibility. Tires slipping against the wet ice, struggling to gain traction.

Max already has enough to worry about when a strange woman crosses his path, nearly getting struck by his car. She berates him in broken English as she climbs into his vehicle. Irritated at the inconvenience but obligated to help, Max offers to give the woman a ride out of the storm. The treacherous and uncomfortable drive reveals some peculiarities about the woman’s character, but the full extent of her bizarre nature isn’t revealed until she locks Max out of his house and begins taking over.

Max is in for an anguished battle for survival when the stranger gains the upper hand.
