In this psychological drama, Seth, a tortured ex-convict, confronts his nemesis Hollis, a holy-rolling prison guard with a penchant for abuse. Seth greets Hollis in a remote diner, bent on revenge, all the while experiencing harrowing flashbacks from his incarcerated past. As the minutes pass, Seth's purpose, sense of self, and even his reality will be drawn into question as the final moments deliver him a world-turning revelation.
