"The Raft" features Deke, Laverne, Rachel and Randy. All four college students on vacation. They are traveling by car in a fairly isolated spot when they locate a lake.

She also has a lover who she chooses to meet several miles away from her home. After a sexual encounter, Annie decides to drive back home at some speed. (Intending to arrive before her husband and greet him there). Annie causes a hit-and-run accident, killing the hitchhiker. She abandons the corpse behind, a bit shaken but determined to make it home. Only the hitchhiker keeps chasing her for the entire ride, shouting "Thanks for the ride, lady." There is an implication that he ended up in hell and is determined to have her join him.
