At times both surreal and frightening, this American Indie sci-fi/horror film follows a bickering couple who find themselves trapped in a confusing and dangerous time loop. While out on a daytime jog around a lake the thirtysomething couple begin to talk about their failing marriage but soon find themselves lost as the hiking trail seem not to have an exit and they repeatedly return to the same spot.

At times both surreal and frightening, this American Indie sci-fi/horror film follows a bickering couple who find themselves trapped in a confusing and dangerous time loop. The marriage of Jen (Dana Berger, “Orange Is the New Black”, “Elementary”) and Dan (Max Woertendyke) has seen better times, with Jen now barely tolerating her whiny husband. While out on a daytime jog around a lake the thirtysomething couple begin to talk about their failing marriage but soon find themselves lost as the hiking trail seem not to have an exit and they repeatedly return to the same spot. And if that is not bad enough, a silent hooded killer is tracking them down. In this debut feature film from writer/director/cinematographer Dane Elcar (based on his award winning short The Pond, 2018), presents a twisting, understated film which culminates in a disturbing conclusion.
