When Walter is awoken in the middle of the night by a home invader, he swiftly guns down the invader but destroys his fence in the process. Walter soon hires Buddy (Benward), a strapped for cash newlywed father, to quickly fix his fence but the job is put on hold when a ferocious hurricane strikes trapping Buddy at the Franklins’ residence for the night. But Walter doesn’t trust Buddy with his seductive wife, and when he makes him an offer he can’t refuse the night takes an expected turn filled with greed, sex, violence and unspeakable discoveries that force Walter to frame the young man for murder. When Detective Jones (Grammer) is brought in to lead the extensive investigation he soon exposes the true identity and intentions of the conspirators.
