Larkin, a forest ranger stationed on the US / Canada border, forms a bond over radio with two civilian fire watch volunteers. Though he can see their distant lookout towers from his own watchtower, he's never met them in person. As a giant storm approaches, it becomes clear that someone isn't who they say they are – violence is inevitable – and help is not coming.
