her husband, Aaron, and daughter, Sierra, are traveling through
No Man’s Land between Utah and Arizona. They are on
a short vacation to meet Aaron’s new friend. Miranda
notices an aggressive motorist getting close. The rogue driver’s
attempt to push them out of the way turns into a pit maneuver.
He sends their SUV over a cliff and into a ravine. Aaron is
injured and Sierra is frightened. Miranda gets them to a small
cave and heads out to find help. Once she climbs a hill and
yells for help she becomes a target. Aaron’s words echo
in her heard "Be careful who you trust." Various
scenarios concerning her husband and why someone would want
them dead play in her head as she runs for her life. It’s
a showdown between the two and someone is going to die.
The storyline follows Miranda and her struggle
for survival. She faces more than one killer and she doesn’t
know why. At the same time, she’s concerned about her
family. Did the killers find them? Scenes are tense and the
mystery -- why they want her dead -- keeps the story moving.
