Every year on New Year's Eve, at the final stroke of Midnight, a ghost cart appears in search of a new driver. And when that happens, someone will die to become the coach's new driver. David Holm is a bad man, who mistreats his wife, his children and his brother and probably doesn't recycle his garbage, either. During a bout of drinking with his friend George, a fight breaks out between the two men. George is killed with a stab of the knife and in the background, one can hear the last stroke of the Midnight bell.

Chaque année à la Saint-Sylvestre, au dernier coup de minuit, la charrette fantôme apparait a la recherche d'un nouveau conducteur. Au dernier coup de minuit un homme meurt pour conduire le triste convoi. David Holm est un mauvais garçon, maltraitant sa femme, ses enfants, et son frère. Au cours d'une énième beuverie avec son ami Georges, une bagarre éclate entre les deux hommes : Georges succombe d'un coup de couteau, alors que sonne le dernier coup de minuit ...
