Still struggling over the loss of their oldest son, the Peterson family find great comfort when David, a young charismatic former soldier, arrives at their home, claiming to be a friend and colleague of their late son. He is quickly welcomed into their lives, and begins helping out in unexpected ways that seem to change the family’s fortunes for the better.
A troubling and violent chain of events cause Anna, the oldest daughter, to suspect David’s real intentions, and she begins to realise that his motives are more extreme than the family could ever imagine. This steely-eyed stranger might appear to be a dream come true but as bullets start to fly and the body count rises, the Peterson family’s nightmare is just beginning.
