She has the idea of trying this out on the group, but has to finance the whole thing herself. Going on the trip, she realizes the whole idea wasn't at all that good, as the trip evolves...
This film is a extreme low budget production, and suffers from this when it comes to lights and picture quality. However, the film shows off some great talent, and manages to draw you in to the story. The uncanny and unpleasant feel makes an interesting and scary feel to what's really going to happen. The premise for an exciting story is made, and as viewers, we're easily fascinated.
Directors Mattias Johansson and Markus Marcetic are making their directorial debut with this, though Johansson has been producing films and TV-series for some years. Somehow, this still has a too easy way out. The result of a good premise isn't at all fulfilled.
