A maniac is on the loose in the city. His time - the night. His weather - the rain. After each night like this, his next victim is found. And it is on a night just like this that a student, working his way through college, comes in to work the graveyard shift at a twenty-four hour convenience store. His boss has gone off to gamble at a casino and the boss' wife decides to have some fun. With lightning flashing across the night sky, a detective awaits the next victim. The maniac has already gone on his hunt! But sometimes, for reasons beyond their control, a maniac can become a victim himself, and in a most unexpected way.
