As Hurricane Vita cuts a destructive path through the Florida everglades, Lydia Miller’s only concern is to secure her store and get her young son Andrew home before the storm hits.
Then, just when she thinks they are safe…a flash!
Now, scared and in shock and suffering from partial amnesia, Lydia finds herself waking up inside a grass hut in this new—and altogether different—world.
Held in the confines of a small jungle village, Lydia questions the young boy who found her, Xavier, about the whereabouts of Andrew. Her hopes of being reunited with her son are abruptly dashed when Xavier informs her that no one has seen or heard from him.
With only fleeting memories to go by, Lydia determines that this entire situation must be the work of Jeremiah, her mentally unstable ex-husband. Unfortunately for her, though, the locals believe differently. In fact, many of them believe Lydia to be operating with a group of people that have been abducting 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 leads Lydia to the answers she seeks regarding her own situation and the strange vanishings. Now, she must face down her own fears in order to find the truth, but…the jungle isn’t the only obstacle to overcome.
