As Josh Stamos (Jessie Eisenberg) drives on the blackened country highway road somewhere in Oregon, he swerves over the traffic lane, trying to avoid a doe lying on the cold asphalt. The car suddenly stops, and Josh, along with his companion Dena Brauer (Dakota Fanning) get out of the car and approach the doe. From a distance, Dena watches while Josh kneels beside the dead animal. “Her belly is warm. She’s pregnant” exclaims Josh. Seconds later, Josh unflinchingly pushes the doe and her barely breathing baby on the side of the road, helpless.
