Rayburn Swanson understands loss. His only teenage daughter was kidnapped five years ago and since then, he has slipped into a downward spiral of alcoholism and self-destruction. After his daughter went missing, Rayburn swore off hunting and trapping and decided to help the very animals he used to kill by establishing a self-sufficient wildlife sanctuary that borders the inhospitable Boundary Waters Wildnerness.

Now he spends his days drinking and monitoring the animals’ activity with a series of closed-circuit cameras that surround his secluded property. His life becomes in jeopardy when Rayburn spots something horrifying on one of the security monitors; a killer dressed in a ghillie suit, hunting a girl on Rayburn’s sanctuary who resembles his missing daughter. Determined to save her, Rayburn teams up with local sheriff Alice Gustafson and sets off into the wilderness in a race to find her before the killer does.
