Overview

A car wreck causes the lives of 15 strangers to unexpectedly collide in this independent comedy drama. It's Father's Day, and Ted William Forsythe is out on the road with his 19-year-old son Josh Dan Byrd. When Josh slams on the brakes to avoid hitting a dog along a two-lane highway in the country, his car is rear-ended by Lorraine Marianne Jean-Baptiste, a cellist en route to a gig. Josh's car hits a telephone pole which soon blocks the road, and a traffic jam results. Among the folks waiting for the road to clear are Lilac Gina Torres and her lesbian girlfriend Rose Mariah O'Brien, who is about to have a baby and needs medical help. Jerry David DeLuise and Curt Christopher Amitrano are a pair of half-bright rednecks who have stolen an ATM machine and are trying to figure out how to liberate the cash from it when they're enlisted to help Rose have her child. Divorcé Dale Jeffrey Dean Morgan is spending the day with his kids Robert Skyler Gisondo and Brianna Marissa Blanchard, but he isn't sure how to break the news he'll soon be moving away and won't see them very often. Gary Jonathan Silverman and Judy Julie Claire are a bickering yuppie couple at odds over the fact they haven't been able to have a baby. Amy Amanda Detmer is on her way to her wedding, and her friends Stephanie Amanda Foreman and Jen Elizabeth Bogush are there to lend support, but Amy is having second thoughts and Stephanie knows something that would have a very serious effect on the nuptials. And Mick Alex Rocco is a middle-aged man traveling with his wife Ruby Tess Harper who ends up acting as an advisor on affairs of the heart to several other stranded motorists.
