Four young friends on a camping adventure in outback Australia are run off the highway by a road train, a massive diesel truck hauling two large trailers. Seemingly preying upon them, the monstrous vehicle had come up behind their SUV and seemed to intentionally push them off the road. With their own vehicle wrecked, and the road train stopped, the friends march off to seek help from the drivers.
But mysteriously, the cabin is empty, and there is no one to be found. Suddenly, the silence is broken by the sound of gunshots. A distant figure in the bush screams and runs towards them. Have they become witnesses to a murder? With no time to discuss their options, the friends commandeer the powerful road train in a panic and head into the distance. The next town is only three hours away but the next town is somewhere that they will never reach. The truck has driven them to a location of its own choosing.
And what they soon discover inside the trailers proves more terrifying than anything they could imagine would be out there on that lonely, desolate, endless road.
