A business tycoon Will (HAYDEN CHRISTENSEN) hardly created time to be with his family.

While hunting with his son- Danny, Will took out time to teach him how to use firearms. In the woods, they stumbled upon a disagreement between two robbers Levi and Charlie (GETHY ANTHONY and SHEA BUCKNER) as well as witnessed the shooting of one of them Levi (GETHY ANTHONY). One of the robbers survived and found a way to kidnap Danny. What does the robber want? Did he get it? Did Danny die? Find out in the plot!
A robber- Levi (GETHY ANTHONY) passes through a dungeon in order to steal money. Young Danny (TY SHELTON) is playing with his toys in the class when a bully approaches him and hits his face.
