A teacher is still haunted by what he did in Iraq.

A macabre ritual traumatizes a high school student.

Still haunted by Iraq, Tim Ross finds solace teaching high school in Wyoming. His quiet is shattered by a freshman who reveals a macabre initiation held at the gun range by the football team. When Tim asks about the strange ritual involving an old crime and phantom sightings of a murdered girl, the frightened teen’s only response is, "Do you believe in ghosts?"

"He hit her in the chest with the rifle’s muzzle once more as she screamed and thrust what had been her baby at him."

Tim does his best to write off the strange incident until that same student leads him to the remains of a girl the entire county had been looking for. Still trying to believe there is a logical explanation; Tim scours the dark forests and lonely homesteads of The Uinta Mountains to find the killer who has stalked their community for decades.

Closing in on his target, Tim’s suspect strikes back, forcing him to confront the horror of what he did to an Iraqi civilian. Will he lose the only chance at overcoming his past and saving the life of the strange boy who has helped him realize there is life after death and hope after war?

What if you could take back the worst day of your life?
