Synopsis: To escape her abusive boyfriend, Kat joins a wilderness expedition with a group of women, all of whom are struggling with the uncertainty of life. What was supposed to be an opportunity for personal discovery quickly becomes a fight for survival, forcing each one to discover the strength within themselves that they didn't even know they possessed. While being brazenly chased by a pack of predators, the strong quickly set themselves apart from the weak. In a battle of will, stamina, and heart, these very virtues present themselves at the most crucial moment. With death looming, each is left with what is truly important - the strength within oneself.

Looking at myself,

getting my angles and stuff.

What are you doing?

I'm taking mad selfies,

bro, taking mad selfies.

I think you've got a problem.

I've never seen someone

take so many selfies before.

Dude, have you ever

seen my following before?

It is insane.

- No, I haven't.

I have... well,

it's not insane.

I have a huge gay following.

It is.

I want to make them happy so...

Is that why you're

wearing the pink pants?

- Coral pants.

- Coral?

Coral pants.

Yeah, whatever you say, man.

Look, uh, you could be taking

dick pictures for all I care.

Just, uh, make sure

you're tagging the trees.

Dude, I am tagging the

shit out of these trees.




- Both sides?

- Yeah.

- Really?

- I haven't been.

I completely forgot.

It was just one of these things.

I... I tagged...

You begged me to come out here.

I completely forgot.

I know.

It's only two simple jobs.

Yeah, they were not... they

weren't all that simple.

Tag the trees and check the GPS?

And I've been doing that

all the time, I swear to god.

Let me see here.

I mean, dude, constantly...

Let me see that, man.


We've only got three miles

left to the site, anyways.

Let's just keep moving

before it gets dark.



This looks like a

good a landmark as any.

Tagged, bro.

Dude, I am so tired.

Dude, imagine living out here.

It's beautiful, right?

No, it sucks ass.

I hate it.

I hate this place.

What is the most fucked

up place you've ever shot?

Abandoned subway

station in New York,

the place just felt like it

was coming down on top of you.

And there was a ton

of homeless people

in there, stirring shit around.

- Homeless people?

Dude, I hate homeless people.

You probably don't even

know how to shit in the woods,

do you?

I have no idea how

to shit in the woods.

I've never been here before.

All right.

On the

north side of the canyon...


The smoke is just

smothering the mountains there.

It's like a, uh...

Jesus, I hope this

doesn't impact the trip.

A really bad version of the air

we saw in the Sacramento...

Can you turn that off?

Did you break in your boots?

Yeah, I'll be fine.

You're gonna get

blisters if you didn't.

I know.

Just... just tell them

you were late because of me.

Tell them we got a flat.

No, I'm not gonna lie.

Just can't stand that

fresh air, can you?


It'll be my last

one for a while.

What if they turn you

away for being late?

They won't.

They won't.

Well, um, you'll

come stay with me

and Bridget when you get back.

Thank you.

But you've got to

promise me one thing.

You don't ever talk to that

piece of shit, ever again.

You cut him out, for good.

I know.


This is gonna make you regret

smoking all those butts.

I got it.

It's all right.

It's all right.


You want me to hang

around for a minute?


It's, uh... I'll be fine.

I'll be fine.

It's gonna be OK.

I think this is gonna be

really good for you, Kat.

I love you.

Just take some time.

Fucking thing.

This is a very aggressive fire.

What's so striking

to me... and I've

been through over quite a

few fires this summer... uh,

is how expansive the...

The burning areas are.

It's not like one

concentrated area.

It is really spread out

up and down the canyon.

Uh, we could see some

spotting going on.

How can they call

this a touch screen?

Do you want new

school, or old school?

Old school.

Tough, you're gonna get both.

All right, just put

a pin in the GPS.


Solar charger will

take it from there, OK?

You know I have no idea

what that means, right?
