    Sophie's parents own a cottage in the country and invited the four girls over for a week-end to celebrate their last few days all together as teenagers. As soon as Sophie's parents leave the girls for the week-end, the girls come up with the idea of a party.

    With that in mind, two of them, Sophie and Manon (chosen by the toss of a coin) go hitchhiking for a ride to the store to buy beer. A man named Thibodeau picks them up in his car. He drives them past the exit and into the isolated woods where he savagely murders Sophie and rapes Manon.

    The film cuts to 15 years later where Manon, the survivor, is still healing from the terrible experience of her past. Her three friends have all moved on and are all still trying to get over the death of their friend, some finding it harder than others. But as hard as they try, nothing can be forgotten, especially not when they discover that Thibodeau is said to be released from prison.
