During filming for her final project, five film students watch a mysterious fireball shooting down the sky and then hitting the horizon far away. Convinced that it is a meteorite, they are on the way to the assumed impact point, in order to document the phenomenon with their cameras. In a remote forest area they find a burnt snow. Since it is already too dark to film, they set themselves up for the night. The next morning they must realize that one of them is missing. In the search for the missing, they first encounter a bloodstain and then make a horrible find: the tattered remains of their friend. When the students want to return to the car in panic, they get lost and get deeper and deeper into the wilderness. They soon realize that they are not alone there – for something is hunting for them. Something that is not of this world …
