In 1806, a runaway slave calls upon his gods seeking vengeance. The gods send a fearsome otherworldly executioner. In 1991, a paramedic tends to a dying friend who begs him to deliver a box to a colleague. But he cannot resist the temptation to look inside, and releases a terrifying relic from the past.
There is no time to sleep. Or eat. Or breathe. You can only run.
