After a night of drug binging and partying, she accidentally hits a certain Thomas Bardo a deadbeat and recently evicted man who gets stuck in the windshield of her car. Not wanting to call for help since she is driving under the influence, Brandi chooses not to get Thomas medical assistance and instead drives home and leaves him clinging to his life in the windshield of her car. While Brandi frantically tries to decide what to do, Thomas tries to free himself knowing his time is running out. Inspired by shocking true events.

What starts off as a grim story about an accident, delves into what really can happen when you refuse to face consequences of actions which you know will land you in trouble. And Mena Suvari was outstanding as the nurse who has one moment of carelessness which changes her life, but it was the nuances in her character as the film goes on that were impressive. Imagine a nurse who discovers a rather darker side to her nature and her psyche goes through a major change. A nurse!! Ironic in itself. And look out for the scene when she goes a bit crazy when she catches her boyfriend with another girl, and she turns violent!! She starts out being the scared woman who's done something awful, then she turns into a kind of captor, for fear of prosecution (and maybe something else), and she's after a promotion as well. All the stuck man wants is help, but he soon realises that something is very wrong and is forced to help himself, which he actually manages to do, and it becomes a battle for survival. A homeless man really has nothing to lose, so his survival instincts are pretty strong.
It makes for quite grim viewing I suppose, but it certainly has a lot to say about human nature, and it keeps you guessing until the very end. Personally though, I don't think it's quite as grim as many have made it out to be. A car crash itself is grim, but that doesn't mean to say it has to be depressing. I have a copy now and I'm keeping it. Pretty challenging stuff I thought.
I enjoyed the ending and the sudden plot twist; I think it was suprisingly unexpected.
It is a kind of theatrical drama, since it is mostly set in a garage with a man stuck in a windshield, but this is enough to create a featurelenght film full of tension and a politically uncorrect and ambiguous morality.
