Joanna Mills (Sarah Michelle Gellar) is 25 and works as a travelling sales rep for a trucking company. She's been troubled since the age of 11, when she started having violent visions which led her to episodes of self-mutilation. Though she hates returning to her native Texas, she concedes to go in order to sign an important client. She notices that there is a picture of the bar from her visions in a catalogue and decides to investigate the place.

She arrives at the small Texas town where the bar is located and meets Terry Stahl, a widower who's wife Annie was stalked, brutally and violently assaulted then left to die 15 years before. Joanna realizes that her visions revolve around Annie's assault, and she keeps tempting fate and pushing her luck till she believes that she is standing face to face with the killer. Yet how will she recover the weapon used to murder Annie 15 years ago? And will she end up being stalked herself as Annie was? And what does this all have to do with how she herself has changed 15 years ago since she was 11?
