  • A group of young professionals head out to the remote backwoods for a hiking holiday. Upon their arrival, however, the group learns of an ancient folklore legend.

    The story tells of a mentally unstable man who violently kills his own sister and her lover. He then vanished into the woods and was never heard from again.

    Since the friends are all very bright and well-educated, they dismiss the story as nothing more than an old myth. But, as they spend more time together in the isolated forest, they begin to witness strange occurrences and sense an invisible presence.

    Although they try to convince each other that they are too practical to believe in urban legends, their fear begins to grow.
