Regaining consciousness in a Boston hospital soon after her chartered flight crashes into the treacherous White Mountains of New Hampshire, Kylie O'Rourke finds the world around her irrevocably altered. She is haunted by memories of the crash: though she was trapped within the wreckage, she recalls wandering through the icy mountainside and speaking with the other passengers, including one who had died upon impact. Seized by a growing sense of guilt and paranoia, Kylie fights to hang onto her life despite increasing evidence that she is living on borrowed time.
