With friends like these...

You know how it is when you start somewhere new: you very quickly make a "friend", who you soon regret meeting and spend the rest of your time trying to avoid. That's an embarrassing social situation, but it's a lot easier than the stuff that happens to the two students in this film, struggling to fit into the macho world of the oil rig. They make a mysterious ally in enigmatic co-worker Michael Biehn. Then he reveals his true colours, and they aren't too pretty.
