A serial killer with a singularly nasty penchant for peculiar mutilations makes a mistake when his next victim is the daughter of Tyler Pierce ($Michael Madsen), a career bank robber who does not let a little thing like being in prison stop him from finding out who the killer is. Pierce escapes jail and begins to sniff out the killer by exploring the rural countryside where his daughter was slain. An ex-prostitute, Naomi (Jamie Luner), offers assistance in his relentless hunt and helps to hide him from FBI agent Gottfried (Bokeem Woodbine), who is equally devoted to bringing Pierce back to prison. Naomi winds up in the clutches of the killer just as Pierce figures out who it is, but can he get to Naomi in time to save her? Or will Agent Gottfried get his man before Pierce does?
