An aggressive Edinburgh businessman, Marcus, takes his old boarding-school friend Vaughn, whose fiancée is newly pregnant, on a weekend hunting trip to a remote village in the Scottish Highlands. Vaughn has never been hunting before. They spend the night at a local pub, where they meet Logan, a community leader who bemoans the rural village's economic problems; and two young women, Kara and Iona. After a night of dancing and drinking, Marcus leaves the pub with Kara, despite being warned to stay away from her. Vaughn and Iona nearly kiss but Vaughn mentions his pregnant fiancée, so they return for another drink instead.
