DEAVER. DANGEROUSLY GOOD.

A spring night in a small town in Wisconsin. A call to police emergency from a distant lake house is cut short. Is it a phone glitch or something more sinister? Off-duty deputy Brynn McKenzie leaves her family’s dinner table to find out…

…And stumbles onto the scene of a heinous murder. Before she can call for backup she finds herself the next potential victim. Deprived of her phone, weapon and car, Brynn flees, along with the only survivor of the crime.

These unlikely allies can survive only by escaping into the dense, deserted woods, on a desperate trek to safety. And ultimately to a life or death choice.

Flight. Or fight?
