When a mysterious creature comes to May and Josh in the night, injured and desperate, they are allured by his humanlike qualities and offer refuge. In the morning, they awaken to tragedy. As Josh and May make difficult decisions regarding the creature's fate, they suddenly find themselves running for their lives, and their only chance of survival - and that of humanity - rests in dangerous hands.
