Paul's life has crumbled around him and a deep depression has consumed him. He decides to do the unthinkable and end his own life but is interrupted by little Katie Ryan who is lost in the Forrest. 

Together they set off on a journey in search of Katie's parents.

The innocence of Katie's questions forces Paul to reflect on his life and the act he almost committed moments earlier.

Katie has no recollection of which way she came from and many of Paul's questions go unanswered.

They both need each other right now but as they venture further and further into the woods dark secrets lurk in the shadows and the stench of a sordid history is ingrained in the soil they walk on
