Lydia Miller is trapped in the path of a hurricane, both literally and figuratively. As Hurricane Vita rages through Naples, Florida, Lydia scrambles to board up her store and get her son Andrew home before it hits.
Lydia finds herself waking up inside a grass hut within the confines of a small, rustic village. Suffering from amnesia and fearing for her own safety, Lydia attempts to piece together the events that have landed her in this foreign place.
She remembers Andrew, but none of the locals seem to know who or where he is. Lydia’s first thought is that her mentally unstable ex-husband, Jeremiah, is behind her current situation.
Lydia questions Xavier, the young man who found her, but the natives have their own suspicions about why she is there. Some of them believe Lydia to be in league with a group of people they feel are responsible for the disappearance of several of their own family members.
In this futuristic tropical forest filled with massive mosquitoes and bloodsucking plants, Lydia begins to question her own lucidity.
Finally, a key is revealed that may lead Lydia to the answers she seeks regarding her own situation and the disappearance of Andrew and the others. Now, she must face her fears in order to find the truth, but…the jungle isn’t the only thing to dread.
