Summary

Adam is driving home from a family outing one afternoon, when a speeding car nearly causes his car to crash. Like anyone would, he tries confront the driver. But a glance into the backseat of the speeding car reveals a woman fighting to escape.

Soon, what starts as an ordinary case of road rage ends with Adam and his family being taken hostage. What starts as a fun day out with family turns into One Dark Night.
