Silva-(ˈsɪlvə) — n, pl- vas, -vae/ The trees growing in a particular region.
Gemma has just graduated college. As a gift, her parents send her and her five best friends to Europe for the summer. They bounce from hostel to hostel as they backpack across France and Italy.
On the news, a picture flashes of a convicted murderer who’s escaped from a local asylum. The towns are told to lock up and a curfew goes into effect as the manhunt begins. The hostels force everyone out, including Gemma and her friends.
With nowhere to take them in and still a few days until their flight home, they decide to go camping in the forest they saw on their
way into town. They liven up the mood by playing a game of hide and seek; going deeper into the forest than they had planned- ending up at an abandoned cabin. After a night of drinking, they pass out but wake up in the morning to a scene of pure horror, and are left running for their lives in a forest unknown to them where no one can hear their screams for help.
What was supposed to be a fun vacation for the group has turned into the worst of nightmares. Can they make it out alive?
