Description by OLDIES.com:
Acres of burning desert. A rundown diner. Hostile, close-mouthed locals. And an upscale L.A. couple just passing through. It's the perfect setup for suspense. Eight-time Emmy Award winner Cloris Leachman leads a stellar cast that includes Ross Martin, Ned Beatty and Dabney Coleman in a smart, lean chiller scripted by acclaimed sci-fi/fantasy writer Richard Matheson (I Am Legend). The story follows Jean Miller (Leachman), whose husband (Dabney Coleman) disappears after they stop at the dusty crossroads diner. No one - not even the sheriff (Dana Elcar) - will help her. So Jean desperately begins her own investigation, one that leads her straight into an ingenious web of mystery and murder.
A woman's husband mysteriously disappears when the couple stop for the night at a roadside motel. Made for television.
