When four high school friends venture into the wilderness for a hunting trip, one of the boys shoots a stranger in the woods, mistaking him for a deer. At first the four friends work together in a frantic struggle to save the wounded victim, but when this fails they are paralyzed with fear and uncertainty, and soon become divided about what to do and whether to hide this terrible accident. Increasingly desperate to stay out of trouble they act with the hope of leaving their nightmare behind, yet each decision only deepens their guilt and further ensnares them in a web of unforeseen consequences.
