A dead body is found in the deep, snowy woods just outside an idyllic small town. The local police suspect the woman has been a victim of a bear attack. But when a young teenage girl disappears from a party they wonder if it has any connection with the dead woman in the woods, or if it is just a coincidence. The local police realize the situation is out of their capacity and ask the FBI for help. Special Agent Charlotte "Charlie" Riley, who specializes in sadistic killers/killings, is sent to the cold, snowy little town, and one thing is for sure. She doesn't believe in coincidences.
