Detective Jack Halcombe (Nicolas Cage) is preparing to leave Anchorage with his wife Allie (Radha Mitchell) and children, when he receives a call that the body of a young woman has been found in the icy wilderness.

Soon after, Jack receives a file on Cindy Paulson (Vanessa Hudgens) a 17-year-old who claims that she escaped from the clutches of Robert Hansen (John Cusack), who held her hostage.

Convinced Hansen is a dangerous serial killer, Jack works tirelessly to build a case against his prime suspect aided by Sergeant Lyle Haugsven (Dean Norris).
