A 24-hour slasher tale of angst and survival.
One night in 1999 sends four ravers into a living hell when they carelessly get their DNA on an unexplainable beheading.
There's no liberation for Seth as he and his friends fight for their lives in the night woods. The RCMP will completely believe that these drugged-out kids at an illegal festival saw a horned man-beast decapitating people—right?
Even as the head-chopper closes in, Seth is fixated on his consumptions and love conundrums between the Rave King Dimitri and his friend April. Oh, and his older cousin Floyd shows up to shed light on the tenth anniversary of his brutal crime. These four kids are in for the rave of a lifetime.
