Evie tuvo una bebita y fue obligada a darla en adopción, pero no puede simplemente dejarla con extraños, sobre todo porque tiene la impresión de que no la cuidan bien. Mientras su novio espera en su camioneta, Evie secuestra a la niña y lo convence de llevarlas a Montreal, donde planea empezar una nueva vida con la pequeña. Pero la niña no quiere comer y, después de una pelea entre Evie y Justin, él las deja solas en un pueblo perdido. Cuando la niña empeora, Evie tiene que decidir si admitir su error y entregarse, o seguir huyendo.

Evie was pregnant and forced to give up the baby. But she can't just leave the child with strangers, especially when she thinks the baby is being neglected. With her boyfriend waiting in the truck, Evie snatches the baby and convinces him to drive her to Montreal where she plans to start a new life with her child. But when the baby won't eat and she and Justin argue, she ends up alone in a small town. As the baby becomes sicker, Evie must decide whether to admit her mistake and turn herself in, or to keep running.
