A romantic escape into nature turns into the ultimate moment of reckoning when a husband and wife are trapped in a tent with a deadly snake. Unable to escape and with certain death looming, the tent becomes a heated confessional to a cataclysmic truth. Betrayed, the couple finds themselves spiraling into a dark and dangerous space of which only one can survive.

When Adam's grant is approved to research a rare species of South African beetle, his wife Gwen convinces him to bring her along in an effort to repair their rocky relationship and assuage her own secret guilt. Upon reaching the lush, forebodingly-named Suicide Gorge, Adam and Gwen settle in and set up camp. When their slumber is disturbed by the gut-wrenching revelation that a venomous Black Mamba is zipped inside the tent with them, the couple discovers that the harrowing physical threat they face is equally matched by a rapidly spiraling, dark and dangerous psychological showdown.

This tightly wound thriller lets the setting work its magic, as rising temperature, claustrophobia and revealed secrets allow performances to really shine. First-time director Amanda Evans artfully builds intensity while drawing out emotional horrors in a film in which dark metaphor is entwined with ever-tightening suspense.
