A year has passed since Keith Miller was imprisoned for Eli Balkoff’s murder. Nestled in a mountainous town with a close-knit community, tensions persist. Alison, Keith’s daughter, must repeatedly retrieve her brother Brandon from the local jail after he’s provoked about their father.

During an altercation with Sophie Hinton’s father, Earl, Brandon finds himself in a precarious situation. Later, the police deliver news of Earl’s death to Sophie and Brandon. With their father incarcerated, Brandon becomes the prime suspect.

As Brandon disappears, determined Alison takes matters into her hands to clear his name before the authorities apprehend him. Her quest leads her to the bowling alley, where she gathers information and steals a timetable. At the ice rink, Freya informs her of Brandon’s mysterious phone call. Officer Darryl provides insights into police evidence.

While investigating the crime scene, Alison discovers a crucial clue, unaware that someone is watching from the shadows. The Chief and Officer Darryl question her about her visit to the trailer park.

After a meeting with Freya, Alison obtains an address for Leland, a local drug dealer. However, she stumbles upon Leland’s murdered body and a peculiar cigarette butt. The police arrive, assuming Alison is the perpetrator, prompting her escape.

Alison encounters Lenny and notices the same unusual cigarette butt at his place. Meanwhile, Charlene goes missing. Alison spots Tyler, who claims to know Brandon’s whereabouts but is chased by an unknown assailant.

In search of Freya, Alison attends a party, narrowly escaping the police. Following a night’s rest, she reaches Tyler’s hideaway only to find him dead. Attacked near a river, Alison identifies a red car leaving the scene. Seeking refuge with Debbie and Ruth, she contacts Officer Darryl, discovering the cigarette butts belong to Charlene.

Armed with information, Alison, accompanied by Debbie and Ruth, confronts the truth at Helen’s house. Sophie and Charlene are found hiding at the Chief’s residence. A confrontation ensues, leading to injuries. The Chief discloses Eli as his son, seeking revenge on Keith. Sophie shoots the Chief, who attempts to escape in Eli’s car. Alison shoots and kills the Chief.

A search party rescues a traumatized Brandon from the hills. They reunite with their father in jail, bringing a resolution to the Hollow in the Land.
