In a hurry, and stuck behind a dirty pickup truck on a lonely two-lane road in western North Carolina, corporate executive Bryce Stanford attempts a bad pass around the wrong guy. The events which follow will test his courage, his strength...and his soul. In the surreal tradition of The Twilight Zone, "Friday Afternoon" is an unforgettable journey into the inner reality of who a man really is.
