Kane Maxwell, local tour guide and Nellie’s neighbour, is less than impressed with the big plans of this city slicker and suspects there’s more to her tree change than she’s willing to admit.

Keen to build her new graphic design business, Nellie talks Kane into letting her overhaul his brochures and signage. He agrees to give her a guided tour of the National Park to take photographs.

They stumble across a makeshift shelter where belongings lie scattered, including photographs of Nellie’s new home. As a sense of foreboding overwhelms her, she and Kane hike to an old house on the river where there is phone service, but when they step inside, somebody is waiting.

For her.
