Adventure thriller. Billionaire Charles Morse accompanies his supermodel wife, Mickey, on a photo-shoot in Alaska. While there, Charles joins fashion photographer Robert and his assistant, Stephen, on a plane trip out to a remote area, in search of a certain Indian hunter they hope will pose with Mickey. Their small plane crashes into a lake, killing the pilots and leaving the three men stranded with no means of communication or supplies. Now they must rely on each other if they are to get out of the woods alive. The situation is complicated by Charles' suspicion that Robert may be having an affair with Mickey, and also by the lurking presence of a large, man-eating bear.
