After orchestrating a robbery, bank Vice President Jeremy Stanton (Dean Cain) gets lost driving in the desert, en route to meeting his family with a deadline of eight hours.
He listens seeks help from a telephone route-finding service, which gives him guidance that does not agree with his map. He is pursued by one of his fellow robbers, Edward James Archer (Danny Trejo), a ruthless killer whom he double crossed. The film is almost a solo performance, with few other characters except Stanton and Judy (Ashley Scott), the woman from the telephone route-finder service.
Ultimately, it is revealed that Judy has been paid by his pursuers to lead him into a trap.
