En route to their holiday home, family man Jake (Martin Monasterski) stops at a nondescript gas station for his wife (Kayla Kohla) and daughter (Abigail Friend) to go to the toilet, and while waiting for them Jake dozes off for a couple of minutes - to find them still not back when he comes to. And when he checks the toilets they're not there, and nobody at the gas station can give him any info on where they might have gone ... or even remembers them for that reason. Jake calls the policem who arrive quickly enough, but can't find any clue of the wife and daughter either - and when looking at the security camera footage, they find the two have never even exited the car ... heck, they've never even been in the car to begin with. Rinaldi (Mario Carneiro), the detective who handles the investigation, does a background check on Jake and finds a note to call his psychiatrist Dr. Shepard (Jeffrey M. Rossman) - who just happens to be in the neighbourhood and arrives at the gas station rather quickly to inform Rinaldi that Jake's wife and daughter have actually died four years ago, and since then Jake has lived in a world of his own fed by illusions that they're still alive. He has been institutionalized ever since but has recently left treatment - and since he's not a danger to anyone that wasn't a big deal ... until today. But fortunately the good doctor is quick to take his patient back and - case closed!

That is, not quite, as back at his desk, Rinaldi finds no report that Jake's wife and daughter have actually died, and he also finds out that Dr. Shepard is not a psychiatrist at all but a brain surgeon. And why did he manage to arrive at the gas station quite so quickly? And there are several other details about this open-and-shut case that suddenly don't make any sense anymore ...


Now The Last Stop has quite obviously been made on a rather modest budget, so certain allowances have to be made in regards to technical execution. But whatever the film lacks on the technical side it more than makes up when it comes to storytelling, as in its mere 40 minute running time (including end credits), this film manages to twist and turn more than many full-blown features while never (literally) losing its plot along the way while surprising the viewer again and again. And a solid cast playing well fleshed-out characters soon help bring this to life, making this a very worthwhile piece of thriller entertainment.
