dybuilder Sean Gaines has spent his entire life molding his body to its perfect form. With his tanned skin, lean muscles, bleached teeth, hordes of female admirers, and balanced diet Sean Gaines looks like the perfect specimen—except that his outer appearance is all that he has. When Sean is diagnosed with cancer from his years of hidden steroid use he finds the treatment worse than the disease. The chemotherapy will cost him inordinate amounts of muscle mass, his colorful skin, his luscious hair and his greatest asset—his appearance. Sean’s vanity disallows him from accepting treatment. When his insistent family convinces him there is no other way to save his life, he sets a plan in place to fake his death and move to remote Alaska. At least there he can die without anyone to see his body withering or push him towards the treatment he fears. After renting a cabin miles from any civilization in Northern Alaska, Sean begins to find himself going stir crazy in the peaceful serenity. He has toted along a weight bench, but finds it only keeps his mind occupied for so long. The rest of the time he spends scared of the silence and nature all around him—that is until an old mountain man dressed solely in buckskins and long johns begins showing at his doorstep. The surly old man refuses to go away, despite Sean’s pleading, and soon unnerves Sean as he discovers clues that point to the possibility that the old man may be nothing but a figment of his imagination—or even something much more.
