Smart, savvy advertising executive Murray Roberts (David Hewlett) is in control of his urban world. But a wrong turn in a large metropolitan park reveals the limits of his control and the limitations within himself. Murrays path is blocked by Carter (Kevin Duhaney), a 14-year-old would-be mugger. When Carter persists, Murray reacts and shoves him to the ground. The act has alarming consequences as a menacing youth gang emerges from the surrounding forest. Murray does what anyone would do in this situation, he runs! Cornered and exhausted, Murray seeks refuge in a massive old tree. A single misstep atop the branches and his hiding place is revealed. Now what can Murray do? Deep in the woods at the end of the day, no one answers when Murray calls for help. The gang, led by the charismatic Shark (Clé Bennett), lays siege. Our hero has no interest in being a victim. Murray turns out to be a tenacious fighter. He manipulates and drives the gang members against each other. However, Shark emerges as an equally adept salesman, selling his point of view to the gang. As Murray and Shark's war of wits escalates, it becomes apparent that first impressions are deceiving. Murray is not a pure hero, and the gang members are not purely villainous. The conflict exacts a devastating toll on each individual as the film reaches its stunning climax.
