One Night Standoff

SYNOPSIS: Ray and Melissa are ordered away for the weekend by their therapist with explicit instructions on how to improve their marriage. They actually seem to be re-learning how to get along when, as they sleep, they are awakened by strange noises in their rented beach house. As the noise continues, panic convinces them someone is trying to break in. While fearing for their lives, they continue to discuss their marital problems bringing out innuendos, lies, and painful truths, which they use as weapons as they make a stand not only for themselves but also against the unknown.

Running time: 95 minutes without intermission.
