Midge owns a gas station in the small coal-mining town of Laybell. When a friendly young man from out of town and his girlfriend stop by, her peaceful world is plunged into chaos. Just the first of two encounters, Midge meets the man again, this time a captive in his own car in the woods of Laybell.
