In December 2004, Russell Core (Jeffrey Wright), a writer who studies wolf behavior, is summoned to the village of Keelut, Alaska by Medora Slone (Riley Keough), who wants him to hunt down the wolves blamed for the disappearance and presumed death of three small children, including Medora's 6-year-old son, Bailey Slone (Beckam Crawford). Core stays at the Slone house, and tries to tell Medora that this type of wolf behavior doesn't happen. Medora says "It happened to me." Medora tells him that there is darkness there, and tells him of a hot springs to the north of town, which is the only warm place she's ever known. She also says her husband is away fighting in the war, and that he told her he would never leave her. In the middle of the night, Core wakes and sees Medora scrubbing her skin in the bath. When she is finished, she lays down naked next to Core without saying anything and puts his hand on her neck.
Medora's husband Vernon Slone (Alexander Skarsgård), overseas in Iraq, mercilessly guns down Iraqi insurgents. Stationed at a checkpoint when shooting breaks out, Vernon rescues a local woman who is being raped by another American, wounding him with a knife and then handing the bloodied knife to the woman for her to take revenge. Leaving the house, he is caught in an ambush and shot but survives to be sent home. After he is shot, he is being carried to a helicopter to transport him out of the country. He has a flashback of his son, Bailey, and mumbles his name, to which the medic replies that Vernon would be home soon to see him.
