Claire works as a bartender in a lawless farm-town, supporting her younger brother and abusive father. When an accident-turned-crime finds her lifeless in the wooded hills, Garett - a mysterious, bearded wanderer - carries her to safety. Weeks later, curiosity drags her back to the woods in search of the hero, only to find him squatting in a makeshift hut on state land. The closer they get, the more Claire questions his isolation and past life, and the more Garett lets go of his fear and distrust for the town. Love, violence and addiction collide in a slow unraveling of the heart.
