Mercy and her stepdaughter, Jesse, are involved in a car accident on a Black Friday shopping trip. Mercy and Jesse are alarmed when they can't contact any of the pack members for assistance. Using her mate bond, Mercy knows that Adam is in pain but alive. Mercy puts together a team of unlikely allies to rescue the pack.
