Plot synopsis – 


Bored during a group cycling holiday in Argentina, best friends Stephanie (Heard) and Ellie (Yustman) decide to head off on their own for the final days of the trip hoping to find a bit more fun before having to head back home to the US. They wind up in a pretty rural village and spend the evening getting drunk in a bar, where Ellie picks up a handsome local while Stephanie heads back to their hotel alone intending to get a good night’s sleep. Stephanie is soon awoken by a booze-fuelled altercation between Ellie and her new “friend”, which is eventually broken up by an American ex-pat, Michael (Urban), who is also staying at the hotel.


The following day, what begins as a discussion of the previous night’s events soon turns into a heated argument between the two girls, causing Stephanie to cycle off, leaving Ellie sunbathing alone in the countryside. Later, Stephanie receives a text message from Ellie apologising for the incident and suggesting they meet up at a nearby café. When her friend fails to show up, Stephanie becomes concerned about her safety and returns to the spot where she left her, only to find her mobile phone, a patch of blood on the ground and the obvious signs of a struggle. When the local police turn a deaf ear to Stephanie’s appeals for help in finding Ellie, she turns to Michael and the pair go on a frantic search for the missing girl. But Stephanie soon realises that confiding in this stranger may be leading her further away from safety and into a trap. All Stephanie knows is she must find Ellie before nightfall and time is rapidly running out.
