John Perrin Flynn directs the new work, billed as "the story of three teenagers who have been surviving in a cabin in the Pacific Northwest, trying to keep their make-shift family unit together. The arrival of a stranger with a secret unhinges the life they knew, and the vestiges of civil behavior crumble.
