From a story by Stephen King, Big Driver follows Tess Thorne, a famous and revered mystery and thriller writer, who faces a long drive home following a book-signing engagement. Prompted to take a shortcut at the suggestion of the event's planner, Ramona, Tess sets out to return home. But while driving on a lonely stretch of New England road, her tire blows out, leaving her stranded. Relieved when another driver stops and offers assistance, Tess quickly discovers her savior is actually her assailant, a serial killer. Left for dead in a drainage pipe to rot with the bodies of his other victims, Tess escapes and makes her way safely home. With her fragile mind beginning to unravel, she is determined to find her rapist and seek revenge.
