Iraq, 2003. In the shadow of the Zagros Mountains, a military unit comes under fire from Iraqi forces. The resulting firefight causes an earthquake with both sides falling into the ruins of a buried Sumerian temple. With all communication broken, our protagonists are trapped in a terrifying underworld that they must navigate to escape – unaware that something ancient and evil has awakened in the shadows and found new prey to hunt.
The survivors now face horrific discoveries and impossible decisions as they try to escape the terrifying threat they have awakened. Will they each prioritize their own survival, or put aside their fears and personal rivalries to fight together as one against these underworld monsters?
