A disaffected single mother draws her existence and that of her only son's into an unwanted predicament after offering a hitchhiker a ride one fateful day.

Adele, a depressed single mother to thirteen-year old son Henry, goes against her better judgement to pick up a handsome yet wounded man by the name of Frank Chambers off the side of the road during 1987's Labor Day weekend. Falling for the man almost immediately after first coming into contact with him and believing him to be a potential escape from her lingering loneliness, Adele's worst fears are ultimately realized when the truth about Henry's background comes to light, placing her in an uncomfortable situation as she must work to cope with the reality of his status as a wanted convict and the ensuing hunt for his whereabouts at the hands of local authorities.
