Wendy, a part-time summer employee at a mountainous state park, takes on a rough trail assignment at the end of the season, trying to prove to her friends that she's capable enough to do the job. When she takes a wrong turn and ends up deep in the backcountry, she stumbles upon what might be a potential crime scene. Stuck with no communication after losing her radio and with orders to guard the site, Wendy must fight the urge to run and do the harder job of staying put - spending the night deep in the wilderness, facing down her worst fears and proving to everyone - including herself - that she's made of stronger stuff than they think she is.

Spending Time with an Irritating Half-wit
If you're going to have a movie with one character off by themselves for the majority of the run-time then there must be a lot of interesting things happening for the character to deal with, or the character must be particularly interesting. And it doesn't hurt if the actor is charismatic. This movie avoids all three of those options as if they were the plague. They make it clear (in fact it's necessary) that the main character is incompetent and stupid and all her actions will be thoughtless at best, and reckless at worst. But she's not interesting or involving or appealing to make time spent with her tolerable. And actually very little happens until the obvious dream sequences (not very inventive or gripping) and all of it is downright boring. It's a wasted hour and a half in the company of an irritating half-wit. If that's your idea of a good time, watch this film.
