An urban couple go camping in the Canadian wilderness - where unimaginable beauty sits alongside our most primal fears. Alex (Jeff Roop) is a seasoned outdoorsman while Jenn (Missy Peregrym), a corporate lawyer, is not. After much convincing, and against her better judgment, she agrees to let him take her deep into a Provincial Park to one of his favorite spots - the secluded Blackfoot Trail. On their first night, deep in the forest, they have an unsettling encounter with Brad (Eric Balfour), a strange alpha male with eyes for Jenn who may or may not be following them. Alex's desire to quickly reach Blackfoot Trail only intensifies. They push further and further into the woods, Alex stubbornly insisting that he remembers the way. After three days their path disappears; they are hopelessly lost. Without food or water, they struggle to find their way back, the harsh conditions bringing out the best and worst in them, pushing their already fragile relationship to the breaking point.

Based on the true story of Jacqueline Perry and Mark Jordan, who in 2005 were attacked by a bear at a campsite in the provincial park about 80 kilometers north of Chapleau, Ontario (Canada). See more »
The morning after meeting the Irishman Jenn gets up to find coffee, and breakfast are already made. Alex pours her a cup of coffee from the pot that is fresh off the fire, into a metal blue enamel cup. She holds it with her hand wrapped around the cup. Either she has no nerves in her hands, or that was not actually fresh, hot coffee. See more »

I've never written a review in my life, but I had to voice my frustration.
This is a really atmospheric movie, with likeable characters and a fair amount of suspense.
It's definitely worth watching...BUT...what drove me crazy was the ridiculous camera movement. My guess is, in an attempt to be arty and perhaps to give a first person perspective of the terror of being alone and hunted in the woods, the camera shakes and sweeps all over the place. Annoying and pointless!! Movie makers, PLEASE stop doing this!
