Eleven Unbreakable windows. One locked door. No way out…
Single mother Darla awakens to the ultimate nightmare… She’s trapped in a house in the woods, with no memory of how she got there. She’s surrounded by strangers. And worst of all, she doesn’t know where her children are.
The six strangers with her have no clue as to what is going on. Tensions grow as they struggle to figure out who locked them in this hellhole and how they can escape. All hope seems lost until the clock strikes 9:00 PM, and the house’s only door finally unlocks. But as they venture out into the woods, something lurks in the darkness.
Something hungry… And when it finally attacks, Darla and the others realize their mysterious prison may be their only hope for safety. But a sinister poem soon reveals that shelter comes with a price. And sacrifices must be made. And the clock is ticking… With no food, no water, and certain death waiting outside, Darla must solve this life or death riddle before it’s too late. Who put them in this house? Who are these people, and why are they there? And most importantly… Who will survive?
