While driving down a country road, Carrie Mitchell (Daryl Hannah) is en route to her new life in Salem, Maine. Suddenly, from out of the woods staggers Amy Singer, injured and scared! Carrie pulls over to help, and her young passenger begins to tell Carrie a horrifying story of what happened to her and her friends in the woods.
Through a series of flashbacks we witness the horrific events of Amy and her colleagues, who days earlier were out on an environmental studies trip for college. Camped in the forest excavating what they believed was an ancient Indian burial site, they come across an arm bone, with a Rolex watch still attached around the wrist. It dawns on the group that they have discovered a burial ground, but not the type they were seeking! Carrie soon discovers that Amy carries a deadly secret, and the unspeakable horror that happened in the woods is far from over.
