Distraught after losing his fortune in the Financial crisis of 2007–2008, stockbroker Jeffrey Desange has killed all of his business partners, his employees, and estranged wife before taking his young daughters; three-year-old Victoria and one-year-old Lilly, away from home. Driving dangerously fast on a snowy road, Jeffrey loses control and the car slides down the mountain, ramming into the woods and breaking Victoria's glasses. Having survived the collision, he takes the children into an abandoned cabin. Planning to kill his daughters and commit suicide, he tells Victoria to face the window and raises a gun to point at her head, but a shadowy figure turns the tables by killing him. Victoria, whose glasses were broken, can only see a mysterious black blur attacking her father. The girls, huddled by the fireside, are tossed a cherry by the mysterious figure.
