Maggie Gilkeson (Blanchett) is a young woman raising her two daughters in an isolated and lawless wilderness. When her oldest daughter (Wood) is kidnapped by a psychopathic killer with mystical powers (Schweig), Maggie is forced to re-unite with her long estranged father (Jones) to rescue her.

The killer and his brutal cult of desperados have kidnapped several other teenage girls, leaving a trail of death and horror across the desolate landscape of the American Southwest. Maggie and her father are in a race against time to catch up with the renegades and save her daughter, before they cross the Mexican border and disappear forever.
