Jack, a loyal and loving Boxer, becomes an out-of-control killing machine days after contracting rabies from a raccoon in his familys backyard. Jack attacks his owner, 17-year-old Katy, and her childhood friend, Peyton, and a bloody race for survival ensues as the terrified girls find themselves severely injured and trapped in a bedroom without any means of calling for help.

The life-or-death situation is a shock considering the endearing nature of this story. Jack, a rescue dog, is the perfect companion for Katy and a neighborhood favorite. The two end up being inseparable, often going on long-distance runs together, snuggling by the TV late at night, and spending their free time together even as Katy gets older and finds her schedule getting busier with a love interest and her and Peytons budding cross country careers.

Jack is an extremely loyal and protective dog. He saves both Katy and Peyton from predatory acts and becomes a hero in the neighborhood for his fearlessness.

But one day Jack is left alone outside and is bit behind the ear by a raccoon. When Katys mom neglects to take him to the vet, Jack takes a turn. Katy and Peyton notice Jack becoming restless in the backyard. When they open the door, he attacks them and slices into Peytons wrist.

Peyton is severely injured but cannot get help as the two girls end up trapped in a bedroom as Jack violently tries to claw his way into the room through the door and nearby windows. Katy tries her best to care for Peytons wound, but she has already lost a lot of blood. After several hours, Katy considers many rescue attempts but instead works out a daring escape, so she can get to her cell phone and call for help.

Peyton runs outside to create a distraction and collapses on the front lawn.

Jack vanishes. Meanwhile, Peyton is rushed to the hospital and is being treated for her injuries. Left to pick up the pieces, Katy works with local animal control to bait Jack out of hiding in a nearby trail. When Jack tries to attack Katy and her mom, the unthinkable happens.
