Synopsis

Albert and Sara, a couple who just met are on their first weekend trip together. They arrive at a deserted village recently turned into an exclusive rural theme park as part of the “Abandoned Town Recovery Program”. Exploring the rebuilt house they are to stay in they discover a trap door leading to an attic that is empty except for an old kids’ chair screwed to the floor.

Thus a much anticipated romantic weekend turns into the worst nightmare imaginable.
