Inupiat police officer Ray Attla joins two of his police buddies for a three-day caribou hunt in the Alaskan Bush country. But when gear and supplies are lost, the trio fishes for food and pulls in the remains of a human head. Ray assumes the deceased fell victim to a tragic accident -- until he and the party are dodging bullets. Fleeing on foot to an archaeological dig, Ray suspects that unearthed artifacts are not the only remains to be uncovered. Coincidentally, or at the hands of the Inupiat gods, Ray encounters a young Athabascan girl who is gifted with a "special sight". The girl's visions arm Ray with fragments of information and he follows her lead into the wilderness to hunt a cagey killer who has declared open season on the police officer.
