Synopsis/Details: 

As a snowstorm grows, MICHELLE and JOAN arrive at Calderon Financial, their drab two-story office for weekend work. The former best friends are currently on the outs thanks to a misunderstanding with HR.

Aside from their silent treatment of each other, there's nothing of note about the day. They bicker. They chat with the building's security guard RHONDA.

Until the storm becomes a full blown blizzard.

First, the phones shut off. The power goes next, leaving them with only emergency lighting. Then they hear the screams.

Upstairs, DON and his crew loom over LELAND BASS. Leland, a Calderon employee who wronged Don, sits tied to a chair, bloody from torture.

Rhonda goes upstairs to check on the noise and is brutally murdered, while Michelle and Joan hear the whole thing over a spare walkie-talkie.

Michelle and Joan consider their options. They could make a run for it and risk hypothermia and frost bite...Instead, they decide their best chance is to survive the night is inside the building with Don, his eager-to-please son Paulie, and Hugo, a model's face with a boxer's physique.

Armed only with a stun gun with dying batteries and an intimate knowledge of each cubicle-filled floor, Michelle and Joan battle it out with Don's crew until the police can arrive... or they're all dead.
