After the death of her beloved father, Maggie and her family are thrown into a life of destitution.
With little income and no way to live off their poor land, Maggie tries to provide for her family the way her father always had - with his hunting rifle and whatever animals the forest would provide. But when her mother is confronted with her "unladylike" behaviour, Maggie is thrown into a life of unthinkable cruelty and abuse.
With no one to care for her and only the hope of escape, all Maggie can do is survive.
