Thomas Devereux and his two close companions find themselves stranded on a snow covered mountain after their helicopter crashes. Unable call for rescue, they struggle against the elements in the hopes that help will soon arrive.
They are not alone. Death stalks the mountain in the form of a savage beast thought to exist only in nightmares. A creature whose sole purpose is to feast on human flesh.
