It's the night of Christmas Eve. Frank Harrington (Ray Wise) is grudgingly driving his family to spend the holiday season with his in-laws. His long-suffering wife Laura (Lin Shaye) tries to force some cheer into the dreary journey, battling against her husband's moaning and son Richard's teenage jibes. Meanwhile, their daughter Marion (Alexandra Holden) and her boyfriend Brad do their best to rise above the growing tension.
For the first time in twenty years, Frank decides to take a short-cut via a deserted route through the woods. It turns out to be the biggest mistake of his life. The road they find themselves on is long, straight and never-ending with road signs indicating a town that can never be reached.. Before too long, a mysterious woman in white (Amber Smith) steps out of the woods and Frank stops the car to help her. A second decision he will come to regret. As mile follows endless mile, an uncontrollable dread seizes the Harringtons, who henceforth have only one desperate desire: to get off the road. The nightmare has begun.
As the survivors succumb to panic and insanity, deeply buried family secrets burst to the surface and the journey turns into a living hell.
