Synopsis/Details: 

Chris and Kerry have taken over an isolated gas station, but business is slow and their new venture is struggling. Tempers fray and acrimonious arguments are the norm.

Everything is put into perspective when their father, Stan, arrives out of the blue, an escaped convict, who was convicted of abusing them when they were children.

Stan has had years for his poisonous mind to turn inwards and plot against the pair, and tonight against the backdrop of a snow storm, he will exact his bloody revenge against his own flesh and blood.

At least that's Stan's plan.

Chris and Kerry have always regretted not finishing the job they started all those years ago.

Stan won't won't be going back to prison this time, one way or the other.
