Wound tight and cocky, Jimmy Starks is a smooth-talking salesman certain he's on the verge of a big break. Even when his car stalls in the middle of nowhere, a roadside soothsayer assures him a windfall is on its way. But although Jimmy should be happy when his boss suddenly agrees to financially back his business venture, he starts to become paranoid instead. As his girlfriend Deirdre and his best friend/ business partner Ed watch him slowly come unwound, Jimmy wonders if a past betrayal of his friend, newly paroled Vince, could be catching up to him. And, as the weather turns cold, Jimmy can't help but fear the mysterious seer's other prediction... that there'll be no tomorrow after the first snow.
In the scene where Jimmy's girlfriend has gone to his house to get her stuff, the collar on her sweater appears down when shown from the back. When the scene switches to her front, the collar is pulled up. See more »
Your fate lies on whatever road you take. Even if you choose to run from it.

This road you're on... you put yourself on this road... on this exact night. Who chose this? A man makes his destiny, right?
Is it destiny or did you make it happen? Are you going to die regardless of what you do to avoid it, or do you make decisions that result in your death? This neo noir with Guy Pearce (Momento, The Proposition, L.A. Confidential) was well written and exciting from start to finish.
Pearce made a perfect sleazy salesman and Piper Perabo (Coyote Ugly) has shown she can do a good dramatic role. I thought she was really good.
The story keeps you guessing until the very end. Did things happen because they were destined to happen, or did he choose to be in that place in that time.
