Kate Reed is surely the happiest woman alive when her husband Michael arranges the adoption of baby Joey after many years of unsuccessfully trying to conceive a child. From the first moment Kate embraces little Joey, she feels as though everything is finally complete. And when Michael suggests they escape the noisy city to find solace and comfort in the Missouri Countryside, she feels like everything is falling into place for her and Michael.But when Michael's behavior suddenly becomes bizarre and unexplainable, Kate wonders whether he's got a bad case of the fatherhood jitters. It seems reasonable enough until sinister men arrive on her doorstep to claim her little one.Kate's only escape seems to be the woods where she fearfully remains with baby Joey. When she encounters an unkempt man named Booker, and the two learn she is wanted for kidnapping and murder, this old friend of her grandfather does everything he can to protect Kate and Joey. Of course she has no idea just who this man is, but suddenly she trusts him more than anyone else…
