A group of young friends take a trip into Jotunheimen National Park. They plan on hiking into the area where an abandoned hotel sits in the mountains; it was the site of several disappearances including a young boy who vanished into thin air. After opting to camp in the woods instead of staying at the old hotel, the friends soon discover there is a hulking killer amongst the woods, and he may not be alone. Flashbacks show the killer's childhood and youth in the 80s.
