After years of frustrating fertility problems, Ellen and Eric Sommers are delighted when they find out they are expecting their first child. Friends and family share their joy, but a stranger also revels in the news. Frank Mallory suffered his own frustrations in his attempts to become a family man and believes his destiny is to create a family by whatever means necessary, including murder.
Frank's maniacal fantasy unfolds as he kidnaps Ellen and plots Eric's demise by framing him for her murder, using blood and hair he extracts from his kidnap victim. The trail of evidence leads police to Ellen's husband, and the District Attorney indicts Eric for his wife's murder. Frank, meanwhile, secrets Ellen and her unborn child to his utopian existence - a cabin deep in the remote lake region of British Columbia. It's a race against time as Eric is on trial for murder and Frank's fantasy becomes Ellen's new reality.
