Three escaped felons randomly target a suburban house to hide out in until midnight, when an accomplice plans to deliver them money. They take the entire family hostage, but midnight comes and goes without a delivery. As their stay extends from hours into days, homeowner Dan Hilliard complies with the felons' no-police demands to protect his wife and two children, while trying to plot an escape from the desperate situation.
