Brad Ellis accidentally kills a man on the highway.
When Brad Ellis accidentally runs over a man one night on his way home after work, his life immediately changes. He has strange dreams and hears strange voices, and it isn’t long before he realizes he is changing in other ways as well. His habits change, and he develops interests in things he’d never even considered before. Bizarre circumstances bring him face to face with the girlfriend of the man he killed. He then discovers that his own personal guilt resulting from this horror has elevated to even new heights, and if he doesn’t do something about it very soon, his life will end. When he faces death as the result of this dilemma, he knows that he has suddenly run out of time.
