A New York City college student reluctantly agrees to take part in a Welcome Week scavenger hunt that quickly turns deadly in this independent thriller. Ever since Jenny Taylor (Christina Brucato) saw her sister murdered in cold blood, she's suffered from a crippling case of agoraphobia. But later, after graduating from high school, Jenny decides to face her fears head on by enrolling in the University of New York City. Little does Jenny realize that her every move is being tracked by Lt. Fox (Terrence Mann), who was there the night her life changed forever. Goaded on by her pushy Resident Advisor Tim (Bryan Fenkart) to take part in a scavenger game designed to help new students find their footing in the city, Jenny eventually relents; after all, the top prize is a pair of White Stripes tickets. With her roommate AnGELina (Hollis Scarboroughj), seductive Deena (Frankie Shaw), and haunted nice guy Gavin (Tate Ellington) to help decode the unending onslaught of texted clues, Jenny and company set out on an urban adventure. But someone is taking this game a little too seriously, and when the young scavenger hunters wind up in a remote area of the city, their innocent game turns into a waking nightmare.
