Derek has always been a runner. He’s spent his life running from his problems, his hurts and from the person he hates above all others–himself. This time though running doesn’t involve a change of address, disconnected phone or a drinking binge, but an actual pair of running shoes. And this time, he’s running for his life.
On the surface Derek is a family man who seems to have it all: a loving wife and kids, beautiful home and a great job—only Derek knows the truth. As a Native American kid from an unknown tribe, bounced around in an abusive foster system, he eventually found a home but never himself. Haunted by his fractured past, repressed rage, dark secrets and the recent tragic death of his infant son, Derek is stuck in a hellish emptiness he can’t seem to escape. Now, his wife is disappearing at night, his career is on the verge of collapse and his own self-loathing is eroding his grip on reality.
Out of desperation, Derek begins to run and it triggers a series of bizarre events, the emergence of a mysterious medicine man, and opens a portal to his own painful past and a supernatural presence that has him questioning his sanity. The appearance of the entity might be the very thing Derek needs to reassemble the fragments of his shattered life…or it may reveal his ultimate destruction.
