    • Prior to the modern world taking shape, a civil war broke out on an ancient planet. When the inhabitants of that advanced civilization fled to Earth, the evil ambassadors with whom they were in conflict followed after them and an epic war between good and evil broke out on Earth. The ancient Mayans assisted on the side of good and successfully they vanquished the evil ambassadors. As punishment, the ambassadors were made prisoners and condemned to live forever in Xibalba, the underworld of the Mayan people. Following this defeat the Mayans enjoyed an era of peace and prosperity but shortly before the ancient culture disappeared forever, they left a manuscript in an ark that warned future civilizations of the return of evil from the ancient planet who would one day descend in search of the evil ambassadors.

      In present day, Dr. Alan Green, an American professor discovers the manuscript and the ark during his studies and believes he has found the key to the ost Mayan culture. He travels to Mexico and hires an expert team of cave divers led by Danielle Noble to explore an underwater labyrinth where he hopes to unearth more secrets about how the Mayans lived and why the disappeared. As Danielle and her team move deeper into the caves, bad things start to happen to the explorers but no one pays attention to these warning signs. When the divers come upon the long dormant alien prison, one members steals an artifact in a moment of greed activating the liberation of all the evil alien beings. The team must fight off these horrible creatures but their panic leads to death and demon possession. Danielle barely escapes but as she reaches the surface, she sees a whole new alien threat looms above her.
