December 31, 1799. A husband leaves his wife and two children in their secluded cabin in the woods while he drives into town for supplies. That evening, a storm begins to rumble and five British soldiers arrive at their doorstep seeking shelter for the night. The drinking spree begins between the gunmen and, despite their own captain's reprimands, the British soldiers begin to take more and more liberties in the confined space. Finally fully threatened, the young mother is determined to defend her life and that of her children until she must use every means imaginable to stay alive.
