Inola Dyer, a pregnant Cherokee woman, disappears in June of 2017, right after she learns her husband is killed in action in Afghanistan. For five days, there has been no trace of the twenty-three-year-old war widow until a lead gives law enforcement officers hope that she might still be alive and headed toward Newton County, Arkansas. Deputy Colt Varnes, a war veteran himself, is assigned the missing person case. During his investigation, Varnes uncovers the disturbing details of the young woman's life and begins to fear he will be working yet another suicide. In his attempt to find the mysterious woman, Deputy Varnes loses his heart.
