In Texas, Congressman Sergeant Archie Sparks finally caught up with AWOL Corporal Meredith Cole who was accused of assaulting the commander. When Archie turned and stepped back for a while, Meredith managed to escape his custody again.
On the way to El Paso (El Paso), Cole found that he was riding in an American bus and a group of eclectic passengers. This should be a smooth journey on Christmas Eve. The bus passed by a group of nomadic cyclists who were obsessed with methamphetamine, who taunted passengers by performing stunts around the bus. One of the cyclists made a mistake and eventually fell under the wheel of the bus, causing the rest of the cyclists to seek revenge. Driver Danny Gunn stopped the bus to ask for help. When he got off the bus, a biker killed him. The stray gun also injured Meredith and passenger Joey Ryan.
Another passenger, a high school football coach Jerry Yarbro was accused of assaulting a student, he retrieved the biker’s weapon, and another passenger, Walter Lindley retrieved Danny’s key. The surviving passengers drove away from the bus to escape the cyclists. When they fled the highway, Joey died of injuries.
The rest of the passengers included single mother Maudie McMinn, moody and wayward father Sam Cutter, strong woman Desiree, her extremely clever boyfriend Duke, vegan Annabel Drake who happens to be a competitive archer, and Spanish-speaking electrician. Ramon Vargas.
At Jerry’s insistence, they drove along a small road by bus. Cyclists drove the bus out of the road in an abandoned dump, where the bus crashed and killed Walter. The passengers built a makeshift shelter, surrounded by cyclists. Jerry, who seems to have an anger management problem, still has a gun. The team is now dealing with the vengeful rider. But they realized that in order to survive, they must continue to attack and fight back with cyclists.
That night, they planned to stop at the garbage dump, while the Maudie crossed the desert 20 miles to the nearest town for help. When the remaining survivors counterattacked with captured guns, Annabel’s target bows and arrows, and Ramon’s jury-made cannon, Modi fled the compound. Maudie met Archie and they killed some cyclists.
The two returned to the compound in the middle of the confrontation, and the rest of the cyclists injured Ramon and kill Duke, Desiree, and Jerry. After the remaining cyclists were killed, the survivors Sam, Meredith, Annabelle and Ramon were driven to the nearest town by Modi and Archie.
Later, at the hospital, Maudie was reunited with his daughter, and Meredith escaped the army again, this time with Archie’s help. Mercedith, Sam and Annabel drove down the road in a minivan.
