Storyline

Desperate father, Sam Medwick, tries to get his son to a hospital in time, after he's accidentally hanged in a freak oil rig accident, but Ed Fratus, an obnoxious self-centered showy traveling salesman unaware of the gravity of the situation, won't let Sam's truck pass his glitzy pink Cadillac with bull horns on the front. Left with no other options, Sam tries to hit the Cadillac, which only enrages Ed and he ends up ramming Sam's truck off the road. The boy eventually reaches hospital but too late for the doctors to save him. A month or so later, Ed returns and stops by at the local desert bar just like he always does when he's in the area. He even tries to hit on the waitress even though she shows him her wedding ring. That's when Sam reappears as well to exact his brilliant yet perfectly simple revenge.
