While spending one of the last days of summer with her friends before she moves away, Andrea gets lost in the woods. To make matters worse, a thunderstorm breaks out. Desperate and afraid, Andrea runs through the rain and stumbles upon an old treehouse. She climbs inside to wait out the storm. To her great surprise, a large eye opens up in the tree trunk and it begins talking to her. Now, she is stranded in the middle of the woods during a fierce storm with a strange monster who doesn’t want Andrea to leave...ever.
