A man known only as Rennie (Jim Caviezel) is motivated by revenge to track down and kill the man who ran over his wife, a serial killer (Colm Feore) immobilized by the man himself. The killer uses a wheelchair. He drives a 1972 Cadillac Eldorado to stalk and kill his victims in car accidents. When the serial killer makes a young woman (Rhona Mitra) his next target, the man has to stop the killer once and for all.

Anna Smith from Empire Magazine gave the film 2/5 stars, writing, "Both the well-choreographed crash scenes and the gritty cinematography hint at a better film. Shame no-one took the time to make it."[2] Jamie Russell from BBC awarded the film 1/5 stars, calling it "a five-lane pileup on the freeway to hell".[3] Mark Savlov from Austin Chronicle gave the film 2/5 stars, stating that the film "lacks the sprawling, Westernized mythos of The Hitcher and feels, in the end, like a previously owned nightmare sorely in need of a new universal hell joint."[4]
