A Darren Maxwell Film
Mannix Foster has bought a new car and is taking it for his first big drive. All is going really well and Mannix is having a great time, until the car suddenly stops running for no apparent reason on a desolate country highway. With no mobile phone service and without having passed any towns or houses, Mannix decides to walk onwards in the hope of finding civilisation. After some time has passed, Mannix sees another car parked on the side of the road in the distance. Hoping that whoever owns it at least has a mobile phone signal, Mannix rushes up to the car only to find that it is ..... HIS OWN! Knowing he hasn't walked in a circle, and seeing that the car hasn't moved from its original spot, despair from his predicament quickly turns to astonishment when he discovers that the car's odometre is now showing 30 kilometres more on the dial than what it was when he left it!
Feeling isolated, confused and alone, WHAT IS HE GOING TO DO NOW???
