Watch Cold Comes the Night
- 1 hr 30 min
Chloe is a widowed mother of a young daughter who struggles to make a living operating a low budget motel in Upstate New York, frequented by drug dealers and prostitutes. She and daughter Sophie share an apartment above the run-down motel until an aggressive social services worker threatens to remove Sophie from this unhealthy environment. Unless Chloe can come up with the cash needed for more suitable housing arrangements, she will be forced to give up her child to live in foster care. The arrival of a drug mule named Topo at Chloe's motel seems an answer to a twisted prayer. Topo is not only getting old but he is also losing his eyesight and needs a driver to help him make his drug rounds. When a local police officer named Billy, with whom Chloe was romantically involved in the past, steals Topo's drug proceeds, he takes mother and daughter hostage in a desperate bid to get his money back. Chloe becomes an accomplice in helping fulfill not only Topo's efforts to recover his ill-gotten gains but also her goal of not allowing child services to take Sophie away from her.
