Set on Christmas Eve, the plot follows a young and beautiful businesswoman (Rachel Nichols) who becomes trapped in an underground parking garage in midtown Manhattan, where she is pursued by an psychopathic unhinged security guard (Wes Bentley) who is madly obsessed with her.


Young and beautiful businesswoman Angela Bridges (Rachel Nichols) works in a Midtown Manhattan office block and gets stuck working late on Christmas Eve, before leaving to attend a family party. When she reaches the second underground parking level (P2) beneath the office block, she discovers that her car will not start. After receiving some assistance from Thomas Barclay (Wes Bentley), an unhinged security guard and turning down his offer to spend Christmas with him, she calls for a taxi and waits in the lobby. When the taxi arrives, she discovers she is locked in the lobby and runs back into the parking garage. The taxi leaves without her and the lights soon shut down. Angela, guided by the light on her cell phone, wanders around the deserted parking lot. Thomas attacks her, drugs her with chloroform, and takes her to his office.
