Christina Gordon (Lori Petty) wants to be a champion runner like her late mother, but she lacks the confidence, and that competitive "killer instinct". When she is given a good luck charm that is an heirloom of her mother's, it gives Chris the ability to make things happen. Good things for herself, like winning races, and bad things for others who've mistreated her such as her rival, Nikki Ryan (Yvette Nipar). Nikki was not only Chris' rival in athletics, but in stealing her boyfriend, David (Kane Picoy).
As the first story segues into the second story, Nikki had turned the tables on Chris, which resulted in the death of Chris. Nikki then goes through the nightmares of running from Chris' ghost, and the hallucinations of a vengeful David that culminates towards her eventual just desserts and insanity. Freddy Krueger is on both ends of the chapters with his observational one-liners.
