Dangerously obese Marty Clawson persuades her cheating husband to dump her in the woods where she hopes to be scared skinny.

But her fantasies about heroic outdoor survival flop as hard as her marriage. Dejected beyond measure, she takes a bus to Montana to visit an old high school suitor—someone she once suspected too sinister to pursue.

Turns out her initial suspicions about him were spot-on. She soon finds herself in the exact predicament she’d so long imagined. Only now she must outwit a vast wilderness … and sheer evil.

Marty Clawson’s got a big problem: 264 pounds’ worth. Doc warns of dire consequences if something doesn’t change, but Marty’s already tried every diet on the market plus an endless list of her own concoctions. Still, she devises a NEW PLAN—and unlike the others—this one is terrifying: a rendezvous with the state park, a place she considers the very heart of darkness (and snack-free) where she won’t emerge again until she is thin. Hubby Raymond believes the method too dangerous—abandoning his super-sized wife like a broken dresser—and refuses to help with her scheme; his crap attitude, along with everything else, changes when she catches him in bed with an aging porn star.

Surviving the backwoods alone is challenging for a seasoned outdoorsman but unthinkable for a woman nearing red-alert obesity; yet, she believes it’s her last chance to avoid eating herself to death. Despite Ray’s newfound assistance, Marty fails at her plan. Desperate and depressed, she contacts Logan Myers, a peculiar boy from her past. Her hopelessness prompts her to accept his offer of bus fare north into the unforgiving Montana bush where he hunts and traps wild animals.

Logan soon reveals himself to be far worse than she remembered. So bad that he tosses her to the elements as punishment for rejecting him. In a wicked and ironic twist, her once farfetched idea morphs into an epic web of repetitious terrain and pure malevolence.

Now she needs to make it back to the Greyhound station before nightfall, without getting mauled by a random grizzly or discovered by a roaming psychopath determined to hunt her down.
