The Toll

It's 1am. An exhausted Cami orders a rideshare at the airport. Her driver: Spencer, awkward and unsettling. Her destination: Her dad’s place in the middle of nowhere. Cami grows increasingly suspicious of Spencer's odd behavior. This fear gives way to full-blown terror when their car breaks down on a secluded road. And they both realize they're not alone...
Suddenly the car comes under attack - a rock smashes through the window. Attached to a message that warns visitors must “pay the toll.”
Cami and Spencer realize it's a supernatural force haunting them: the Toll Man, pitting these two strangers against each other. Until they discover that for either to survive, one of them has to die.
