Rachel got some bad news; her soon-to-be-ex-husband wants the house. Exhausted from a late-night, Rachel tells her lawyer, Andy, she will handle it later because she is running late to take her son, Kyle, to school and go to work. During the drive, Rachel gets a call from her client. When the client hears Rachel will be late again, the client fires Rachel over the phone. Now, Rachel is tired, stressed, late, and fired. She decides to get off the freeway and take Kyle to school using the backstreets. At the light, she sits behind a pickup truck, but the driver doesn’t move during the green light. Rachel lays on the horn, then drives around. At the next light, the pickup truck driver asks Kyle to roll down his window. He asks if Rachel knows what a courtesy honk is and why she didn’t use it. Frustrated, she tells the man he was in the wrong. The man apologizes for being upset and ignoring the light. In turn, the man wants Rachel to apologize too. She refuses to apologize. The man vows to make her see what a bad day is. Then, he starts to follow her down the street, leaving accidents and injuries in his wake. Rachel loses the deranged man and takes Kyle to school. Before she meets up with Andy, Rachel gets gas and sees the man behind her car. She alerts the gas station clerk and a good Samaritan. The Samaritan warns the man and tells him to move on, and the man hits the Samaritan and stalks Rachel on the road. He calls Rachel in the car and tells her he is going to make her pay and apologize. He stole her phone with a contact list of everyone she loves. Rachel doesn’t know the man killed his ex-wife and her new husband just hours prior. He is a monster with pure road rage, Rachel is in his crosshairs.
