Anne Cassidy and her daughter, Miranda, have not seen each other in three years nor spoken in more than three months. Their relationship fractured many years ago when Miranda's father died and Anne took her daughter from their home in Pittsburg to Arizona. Now that Miranda is an adult, she wants nothing to do with her mother – a mistake that may turn tragic. After Miranda has a car accident, a stranger named George picks her up at the side of the road. He drops her off in a small Virginia town and since no one knows she's missing, Miranda tries to forget her past. However, George keeps popping up at unusual times, and it is unclear if he is connected to the strange killings of young women.
