A grizzled buck tracker attempts to save his junkie daughter from the wrath of a ruthless drug dealer by leading an ambitious New York City lawyer on a potentially-lucrative hunt in this bleak psychological thriller. A year after Joe Dawkins' wife died while he tracked a massive buck, he still blames himself for not being there to save her. Now, Joe's been hired by big city lawyer Greg to help him bag the buck that will win him a bet with the boss, and secure him a big promotion. But Greg is about as far from an outdoorsman as a man can get, and he's coerced his blue-collar brother-in-law Charles - an expectant father - into joining the hunt. On his way to meet Greg and Charles in the snowy woods of northern Maine, Joe stops off in a depressed mill town, where he finds his daughter Jenna in a shocking downward spiral of addiction. Even worse, Jenna is being threatened by Reggie, her sadistic drug dealer. Though Joe initially attempts to cancel the excursion in order to help his daughter, Greg makes him an offer that could settle Jenna's sizable debt to Reggie, and get him out of her life for good. Later, as the trio finds themselves on the trail of the same buck he was tracking when his wife died, the redemption that once seemed within reach appears to drift ever further away.
