  • Ever since the day a drunk driver killed Freddy's Gale's 7-year-old daughter, Gale has been consumed with grief and revenge. So, shortly after the driver, John Booth, is released from prison, Gale attempts to murder him. He fails in this task, but informs Booth that he will certainly return in three days to complete the job. During this period, however, Gale grows ever more emotionally erratic. He finally realizes he must confront his many demons... before his downward spiral results in the death of others.
