After his father is killed in a car crash, Jack (Rory Culkin) travels home to Colorado to help nurse his drug addicted mother (who was also injured in the crash) back to health. He is cursed by his past, and it takes a dark sinister turn when Jack finds a message from his late father, containing a clue that leads him on a mind bending scavenger hunt. There he uncovers long buried secrets and lies within his soul, family, history, his parents, his friends, and his very mind.[1][2]
