A desperate choice leads Jack down a path that leaves him beaten and bruised as he struggles against man, nature and his own insanity. Stranded in the middle of nowhere after barely surviving a horrific assault, Jack encounters one local after another and quickly learns that a sick game of cat and mouse is about to begin. Battling the deranged country psychos and the harsh landscape, Jack must go to extreme lengths to survive.

“an intense experience that’ll put you through the wringer… there’s no question that filmmaker Sam Curtain delivers a discomforting gauntlet of extreme horror”

—Meagan Navarro, Bloody Disgusting
