Synopsis

A man is on a holiday in the woods with his wife and two kids when they are surprised by the arrival of an uninvited guest. Suddenly, he experiences a time lapse. Before he understands what is going on, he finds himself separated from his family. And when he starts finding several alarm clocks that seem to have been planted throughout the woods, he knows he has to race with time if he wants to see his family alive. Meanwhile, another family is in the woods, who may be related to the strange going on.

Seorang pria sedang berlibur ke hutan bersama istri dan dua anaknya ketika mereka dikejutkan oleh kedatangan seorang tamu tak diundang. Tiba-tiba, ia seperti mengalami perjalanan lewat mesin waktu. Sebelum berhasil memahami apa yang terjadi, ia telah terpisah dari keluarganya. Ia mulai menemukan beberapa alarm yang sepertinya ditanam dengan sengaja di hutan itu, lalu ia tahu: ia harus berpacu dengan waktu jika ingin melihat keluarganya hidup. Sementara, di hutan itu ternyata ada keluarga lainnya, keluarga yang mungkin ada hubungannya dengan segala keanehan yang terjadi.
