Opening night film at FrightFest 2022.
Royal Air Force pilot Lt. Kate Sinclair is on her final flight mission when her jet is shot down over one of the most dangerous rebel strongholds of Afghanistan.

Sinclair barely escapes and unknowingly leads the creatures known as Ravagers back to a U.S. army base.
