The struggle to survive can bring out the worst in anyone. A teenage friend of the Brannings' has been found shot while hunting, and his slain deer is gone. Suspicions immediately fall on Mark Green, the son of a convicted murderer. Before he can prove his innocence, vigilantes force the sheriff to arrest him.
