Samantha Darko (Daveigh Chase) follows her rebellious best friend Corey (Briana Evigan) on a cross-country road trip from Virginia to California in an attempt to become professional dancers. Their dreams are cut short when their water pump blows outside of Conejo Springs, a tiny Utah town. Sam and Corey are saved by the town bad boy, Randy (Ed Westwick), who is passing by. He takes the two girls to the town to get their car repaired and then to the local motel where they meet the conspiracy-loving owner. He tells him of a boy that went missing.

That night, Samantha becomes possessed and “sleepwalks” outside to where she sits on top of a windmill with the local lunatic, Justin “Iraq Jack” Sparrow (James Lafferty) who tells her that he’s been waiting for her. She suddenly has a deep gash on the right side of her head and she wears a gold ballgown. She is from the future. Samantha, in the style of Frank from Donnie Darko, tells Justin that the world will end in four days, seventeen hours, twenty-six minutes, and thirty-one seconds. Then she commands him to follow her, off the windmill, and into the future.

It is morning again, the morning after the first meteorite landing. Samantha has not died, so Future Samantha never went out to the windmill and called Justin into the future. She and Corey visit the site of the meteorite crashing. The locals are saddened as they take away Justin’s body from the site because he has been killed by the meteorite. Samantha, never having experienced any of it, decides to go back to Virginia. Corey stays with Randy.
