After the demise of her parents, Christy's boyfriend turns on her, causing her to suffer through an abusive relationship, until she flees. Battered, she wants only to disappear off the face of the earth. You should be careful what you wish for. After the single-engine plane she boards is thrown off course and crashes into the middle of nowhere, killing all but one of the other occupants, Christy almost gets her wish. She is dismayed when she realizes her only hope of survival is dependent on a man who appears more soulless than her ex. Lando knows Christy is following him through the wilderness, thinking he is unaware of her presence. And telling her he is a hit man for the mafia undoubtedly makes her wary. Life has made him hard and tough. When a violent storm forces the two into a confrontation of wills, they battle more than the elements together in a tiny cave, safe from a raging blizzard, but not their blazing emotions.
