When Ben takes a business trip to rural Pennsylvania, he decides take a short hike before his dinner meeting. Once he sets out into the woods, he quickly comes to realize that the path he has chosen cannot be given up easily. With no choice but to move forward, Ben finds himself falling deeper into a world of man-eating giants, bizarre demons and colossal insects. Dreams and flashbacks from his past dominate his thoughts, showing him the most powerful and terrifying moments of his life, as real as when he first lived them. On a quest of epic, life-or-death proportions, Ben finds help comes in some of the most unexpected forms, including a profane crustacean and a variety of magical objects. Desperate to return to his family, Ben is determined to track down the “Producer,” the creator of the world in which he is being held hostage and the only one who can free him from the path.
