Julie Edwards is a recent college graduate who is planning to go on a road trip across the country with her best friend, Kim. The day before they depart, the girls are given a party by Julie’s mother, Sharon, and her stepfather, Greg. Sharon seems nervous at the prospect of the girls taking off for parts unknown, but Greg sees no harm in the adventure. The girls set off and after driving through the morning, they stop at a small town diner for a bite to eat. They are accosted by a strange looking man, but two cute and seemingly charming boys, Matt and Pete, quickly intervene. The boys join the girls for lunch. Kim takes to Matt, and the shy, virginal Julie finds herself to drawn to Pete. Following their meal, the boys take Julie and Kim for a hike in the nearby woods, and after a few too many drinks, Matt and Pete invite them to a cabin that they’re using for the summer. Kim is quick to go with Matt into another room, but Julie isn’t as sure of herself with Pete. He puts her at ease but then promptly knocks her out.
Julie awakens to find herself Pete’s prisoner, and he cruelly explains that she and Kim are about to be forced into sexual slavery for his many wealthy clients. Julie is terrified and tries but fails to escape as the hopelessness of the situation starts to sink in.
Ethan Graff is a financial advisor plagued by both loneliness and insomnia, the latter related to a trauma he survived in his younger days. Ethan meets with a potential client, the wealthy Carter McCord. He soon finds himself invited to the home of Carter’s future father-in-law, Geoffrey Troxel, and both men ask Ethan to join them for a weekend getaway. Ethan is hesitant, but ultimately agrees to go along. When the men arrive at a secluded cabin, Ethan is horrified by the sight of two young girls, obviously abused, and definitely being held against their will. He manages to get some of the story from the shattered Julie and decides on the spot to try to save them. However, it’s too late for Kim, and she dies at the hand of Carter McCord. Ethan is still determined to rescue Julie, and what follows is a night of close calls in the dark forest at the end of which Matt is dead, Pete is injured, but Julie is finally free, and she also believes that Ethan is indeed a man of his word.
In the days that follow, Julie’s mother is distant, her stepfather is overbearing, and Julie turns to Ethan again for some kind of comfort. From his hospital bed, Pete asks to see Julie, and she agrees to his request because it might lead to the name of the person behind her nightmare. When that name is revealed to be Greg’s, and when her mother excuses him and tries to heap some of the blame on Julie, she is all but destroyed. But Ethan cares for her and slowly brings Julie back to a normal life. In the end, she freely gives herself to the man who saved her and finds peace in his arms.
