Father-to-be Vaughn and his lifelong friend Marcus head up to an isolated, struggling Scottish Highlands village for a weekend hunting trip. Nothing could prepare them for what follows.
After a first night of heavy drinking with the villagers, the men head out on a misty Autumnal morning, into a vast forest. Vaughn spots a sika deer and lines up a shot. In the blink of an eye, the sika deer darts and Vaughn’s bullet rips into a child in the distance. Marcus, panicking and trying to protect his friend, guns down the child’s father in cold blood.
The men make the fateful decision to cover up the crime, planning to return under the cloak of night to bury the bodies before fleeing the village the following morning. But piece-by-piece their plan completely unravels as they become stranded in the village and sucked into a never-ending nightmare.
When the local villagers are revealed to be the close family members of the dead child, Vaughn and Marcus’ escalating guilt, fear and paranoia begins to tear their lifelong friendship apart. And as the villagers’ suspicions begin to peak, the men are forced to join a search party of the dark woods.
As the locals close in on the truth an unstoppable chain of events is set into motion as Vaughn is drawn into a series of increasingly unbearable and impossible moral choices that place both his survival and his family at stake.
