Philip and Lukas, two teenage boys, are making out in an isolated cabin when they are interrupted by the unexpected arrival of a group of men. The boys hide when the men enter the cabin and witness one of the men shoot the others before he turns to kill them. They manage to overpower him and escape into the night, hiding all evidence of the encounter and vowing not to tell anyone what happened. Sheriff Helen Torrance goes to investigate the killings and finds the FBI is already involved. Kamilah Davis, an FBI agent, tells Helen the three bodies are a routine gang killing linked to a drug trafficking crime family. But despite being warned to stay away, an invigorated Helen suspects there is something more going on and she and her deputy Tony begin investigating, starting with the car parked outside.
