Jake is an idealist who has spent several years doing voluntary work in Africa. When he returns to the US, he is invited to a party by friends and reunites with Bronwyn, the lost love of his life. He is determined to win her back. In a whirlwind of emotions, Jake senses that Bronwyn still has strong feelings for him, and his expectations rise.

It gradually becomes clear to them that they are facing a supernatural entity that is getting stronger with each kill.

Finally, Jake is forced to assume the leadership role. He realizes there is only one way to stop the carnage. He not only saves Ryan’s life from the Vérbalek, but he also makes the ultimate sacrifice to save the woman he loves.
