Synopsis / Plot
Six years ago, alien life was discovered in the Solar System. However, a NASA probe returning with samples crashed over Mexico and now half the country has been turned into an infection zone by the US military. Photojournalist Andrew Kaulder (Scoot McNairy) is in San Jose, Mexico when he receives orders to divert to the hospital to pick up Samantha Wynden (Whitney Able), the daughter of his news agency’s owner, and escort her to safety at the coast. Andrew reluctantly does so, abandoning the opportunity to shoot photos of the disaster area. They set out to the coast, having to pay an exorbitant amount to get aboard the ferry – only for their passports to be stolen by a girl that Andrew spends the night with. They are then forced to make a dangerous trek through the infected zone to get to the border, which involves a journey by boat and vehicle through territory inhabited by unearthly giant-sized monsters.
