Rural mail carrier, Tammy, bumps heads in a nightmare during a rare spring snow storm. Twenty years before, she was kidnapped and shot by a drug addict she met along her route. Now she picks up another stranger along her route and the memories come flooding back. Is she about to be kidnapped and shot again? No, she tells herself, because the odds against it are so great.
