On the run with her five-year-old daughter, stranded in the middle of a blizzard and critically injured, Jillian Braedon finds herself unable to push forward, leaving young Valerie to brave the storm alone. Eventually stumbling onto the remote property of the reclusive John Mills, young Valerie barely makes it to his doorstep.
For Jillian and little Valerie, the nightmare has painfully unfolded for half a decade.
For John Mills, the nightmare has just begun, as he must find the lost child’s mother, and is soon caught up in their torment, coming face-to-face with a shocking reality he had never dreamed possible. John soon realizes that he’s all that stands in the way of the pursuing covert agents – a handful of determined operatives who are willing to kill even a small child, in order to bury the explosive secret that had once saved, but now threatens the woman’s life.
