After a tragedy at her son's school, Martha Warden is determined to protect him from the world and from the constant, unnamable dangers that plague parents and their children. Late one night, she kidnaps Duncan and takes him to live, hidden and isolated, in a cave on the Rio Grande. When a strange man discovers her hideout, Martha is wary and suspicious. Yet she slowly begins to trust him with her son -- never realizing that the man is a detective sent by her husband to bring her back home.
