A disheveled man who wanders out of the desert, Travis Henderson seems to have no idea who he is. When a stranger manages to contact his brother, Walt, Travis is awkwardly reunited with his sibling. Travis has been missing for years, and his presence unsettles Walt and his family, which also includes Travis's own son, Hunter. Soon Travis must confront his wife, Jane, and try to put his life back together.
