After a young American backpacker goes missing in Europe, a group of journalists link his disappearance to a remote village in Poland.

Unable to escape, they soon become the next victims of ritualistic human sacrifice. Forced into the gruesome reality of true survival horror, the journalists soon discover that this village hides a much darker secret than they could ever imagine.
