You can only push a mother so far...

Bo Lowery and her ten-year-old son have hunted the woods surrounding their Alaskan home for as long as Caleb can remember. What they don't eat themselves, they sell to local businesses, using every part of the animal. Disgusted by the wolf cull, pop megastar Rainey Layne and her bodyguard Darius travel to Bo's small town to join a growing group of animal activists.

After Bo and Rainey clash during the protest, Rainey pulls mother and son headfirst into her manic, self-absorbed world when she crashes her car on their land. Soon, she finds herself their unwilling guest. But in the age of instant communication, celebrities can't just disappear without the whole world demanding them found.

Detective Lucy Okalik from the Alaska Bureau of Investigations's Major Crimes Unit takes the case, using her keen insight to track Layne down, whatever the cost.

In a violent showdown between hunter and activist, tensions within the Lowery household are dragged into the light as Detective Okalik closes in on Rainey's location. Both kidnapper and captive harbor dark secrets. But Rainey Layne will learn just how far a mother pushed to the edge will go to protect her child.
