In the not-so-distant future, a young woman and her father have retreated to the wilderness, the only place where humans can still feel some semblance of freedom. But it’s lawless and dangerous in the woods—and when thieves snatch the girl’s most prized possession, she’ll stop at absolutely nothing to get it back.
