An architect going through divorce crashes his car on a remote country road in the Blue Ridge Mountains of West Virginia. He staggers to an isolated house and witnesses a murder. He runs back to the crashed car with the killer chasing after him and sees his own body being stretchered into an ambulance. He later realizes that he has witnessed the murder through someone else's eyes and that the murder has not yet taken place. Then the issue becomes personal and he realizes that the only way to avert a tragedy in his own life is to stalk the man through whose eyes he saw the killing, without letting him know.
