In a desperate attempt to get a fresh start, Sarah travels to a remote jungle for the adventure of a lifetime.
Sarah and a small group of fellow adventurers are exploring the jungle when they get caught in a horrible tropical storm. Racing for safety, the group discovers a grotesque murder scene. Darkness falls over the jungle, and suddenly, the forest itself seems to have an evil presence.
When morning finally arrives, the group wakes to find that the murder victim has vanished. Throughout the day, members of the group begin to slowly disappear one by one. Engulfed by fear and dread, Sarah begins to wonder if she — or anyone — will make it out alive.
