Alison (Melissa George) and her friends Ed (Ed Speleers) and Rob (Alec Newman) along with marrieds Alex (Garry Sweeney) and Jenny (Kate Macgowan) have traveled to the Scottish Highlands for a relaxing vacation of peace, quiet, and a little intense mountain climbing. One day the group finds their vacation brought to a dead standstill when they discover a barely alive little girl named Anna (Holly Boyd) being held prisoner buried under the ground. They dig her out and decide to head for the nearest village to call for help, but en route they realize that they’re being hunted by the forces that put Anna in the ground to begin with – notorious kidnappers Kidd (Sean Harris) and McRae (Stephen McCole). The criminals have taken the young girl who doesn’t speak a word of English with the intention of holding her for ransom and are prepared to see their devious scheme to the end even if it means taking a few more lives than they originally intended. It’s up to Alison and her friends to brave treacherous bluffs and raging rivers to get Anna to safety without losing their lives to Kidd and McRae, who have their own problems in the form of a resourceful mercenary (Eamonn Walker) and a company man (Karel Roden) who has been hired by Anna’s mysterious father to bring her back at all costs.
