While driving home on New Year’s Eve, a married couple hits a stranger walking on a dark forest road. In a panic, they take the body home to sober up before turning themselves in. But they soon discover that the man wasn’t dead after all – that he was in fact armed and already on his way to their house. As the family is thrust into a deepening mystery, they discover that no one is who they seem – including each other.
