Kate takes to the country to clear her head. Amongst the solitude, she finds herself in a suffocating thought pattern, replaying the image of her husband’s affair. In an attempt to shake it off, her bad day gets worse when she sprains her knee on an evening run. Alone in the darkening landscape, she seeks help from the nearest strangers.
