There, Wen meets a group of strangers, led by the mysterious Leonard (Dave Bautista), who eventually break into the cabin, taking the family hostage and bringing them a terrifying message: the world is about to end and the only way to save them to save it’s up to the three of them to choose the “ultimate sacrifice”. Initially, the family doesn’t believe the group and tries to escape, but as the hostage situation continues, they are at odds over what to do and whether they should sacrifice their own happiness for the good of the world.
