PLOT: Madeline is on her way to Chicago for a job interview in 1930 when a driving storm forces her to take cover at a diner in the middle of nowhere. Bernice, the waitress, tells her the place is closed, but Douglas, a greasy drifter, tells her to stay. Madeline decides to wait out the storm with a cup of coffee, but when tension between Bernice and Douglas suddenly erupts in violence and Douglas locks both women in the diner, Madeline turns the tables on both Douglas and Bernice with deadly consequences.
