Set in the small town of Devil’s Gate, North Dakota, the film examines the disappearance of a local woman (Regan) and her young son. Schull plays an FBI agent who helps the local sheriff (Frakes) search for answers. Partnering with a deputy (Ashmore), they track down the missing woman’s husband (Ventimiglia) and find that nothing is as it seems.
