On a stormy night, Kara is driving home from a day trip to Canmore and against her father’s advice, is returning via Old Banff Coach Road. With its narrow lanes and dark curves, she suddenly comes upon a young woman standing alone in the middle of the highway. Drenched from the rain and visibly shaken, Kara offers her a ride into the city. By the eerie glow of the dashboard light Kara soon begins to realize that her passenger is not what she seems.

Each year he made his appearance at The American: the roadside bar that was his haunt in life. His last two visits were caught on the bar’s security footage, along with the specter of a man dressed all in black. Then, two years ago, George’s father mysteriously stopped visiting. Tonight, George once again waits faithfully, hoping that his father will appear to explain the phantom and its role in his demise.
