Mammoth View, California is hit with the news of an attack on a summer morning. It’s not clear what happened, but it’s bad. And it’s far from over. As residents panic and leave town, the police chief and his deputy set off into the woods to investigate.

The attack seems like the perfect coincidence for Billy Lane. Looking for the biggest score of his career, he’s targeted the local bank. The robbery does not go well – and the aftermath unfolds catastrophically. Over the next twenty-four hours, chaos descends on Mammoth View—all leading back to what really happened outside of town.
