    • Synopsis
    • In an unnamed country of the near future, three private security contractors -- a corrupt ex-cop, a suicidal ex-soldier, and a skilled hunter -- are on a seemingly routine assignment: safely escort their client from a company meeting in the north to a command post in the south.

      After taking an unexpected detour, the contractors' vehicle is wrecked on a winding backwoods road. Now they must travel on foot with limited weapons and supplies, and no way to call for help. Meanwhile, their every move is shadowed by a mysterious assassin.

      As the clock ticks on their escape, loyalties are tested and secret motives are revealed, forcing the contractors to confront themselves -- and each other -- until the last one is faced with the ultimate choice: Is it better to be nothing than to live a lie?
