A family trip through the New Zealand wilderness turns into a nightmare when they’re suddenly confronted by a pair of drifters.
Winding down a desolate road, Alan (Erik Thomson) and Jill (Miriama McDowell) stop their car to take their teenage boys on a hike through the wilderness. When two ominous-looking drifters appear out of nowhere, the men take the family by force, a seemingly random decision that sets them all on a maddening collision course with the ghosts of their pasts — from which there is no escape.
