"For the first time since taking possession of the family cabin, Vaughn has invited his best friends up for a winter weekend of hunting and drinking. But the arrival of unexpected visitors turns a simple getaway into two days of life-changing turmoil.
Vaughn and his brother Trevor were abused by their father, and have become estranged. After their fathers death, Vaughn buys the family cabin from his mother with his inheritance, while brother Trevor, has gambled his away and has a large debt to pay. Vaughn invited his three best friends along, for a week of drinking and hunting, but with the unexpected visitor of his brother, Vaughn and his best friends discover they all have deep issues. Bryan, Vaughns best friend, is having relations with Vaughn's ex behind his back. Jon and Steve have a fling that threatens Steve's marriage and all he knows about himself. The story culminates in Trevor's hidden depression coming to light, shocking his brother and friends into facing their own issues, all while saving somebody they didn't realise needed saving.
