Mitchell seemed to have the perfect life with a beautiful wife, a family, nice house and a successful career. However, he finds himself missing old times from his youth and so embarks on a road trip with a friend who has known him his whole life, Carter. During the long trip, their pickup truck breaks down in the middle of a desert road leaving them stranded with no signal on their cell phones to call for help. It's not too long before a supposed stroke of luck, though, when another car stops to help them. In a strange turn of events, Carter waves the other driver away insisting that they hadn't actually broken down, and admits to a furious Mitchell that he took a wire out in a bid to have a catch up with his old friend. They do talk, but as the frozen desert night air overcomes them, tensions arise as they begin to criticise each other's lives - an argument that very quickly turns nasty.
'Scenic Route' is an intense thriller about how such a little mistake can turn into a life-changing event. It has been directed by Kevin Goetz and Michael Goetz in their directorial feature debut and written by Kyle Killen ('The Beaver', 'Awake', 'Mind Games'). The movie is currently available on DVD in the US.
