The fatal accident was actually choreographed by Henrietta, a Kervorkian wannabe, and Dara and Noble become Henrietta's unwitting pawns. Against their better judgment, Dara and Noble agree to deliver the body to Duluth and hope that will be the end of it. But their troubles have just begun.

They persevere and in the end a startling surprise bubbles to the surface that ... Written by Friction Films

It's too bad this film wasn't scraped a forth time. The idea might have been good, but it wasn't carried out in the script, in most of the acting, or the editing. If this is what Minnesota is offering up now, maybe it's time to close up shop. Skip this film and save 90 minutes of your time.
