Millwood-n 1: a village in Ohio. Outpost-n 1: a station in a remote or sparsely populated location; 2: a settlement on the frontier of civilization; 3: a military post stationed at a distance from the main body of troops.
Confined on a stormy day, six highway workers are forced to share one room in an abandoned Department of Transportation outpost. Over the course of several hours, the men must confront their own fears, prejudices, and beliefs, and those of each other, while elemental forces outside threaten them all.
