A dysfunctional family goes on a camping trip to mend their relationship when they are thrown into a life or death situation.
Jake Farnsworth loves the outdoors and spends most weekends with his son Eric, fishing outside Saranac Lake, New York, having moved here from the city when Ellen got transferred to a managerial position with the bank in town. She is deeply involved with her church, volunteering for every function that comes along. Since Jake is agnostic, they spend little time together. Eric and his older sister Julia, don’t get along and constantly argue, which Ellen breaks up with little help from Jake. The two parents are aware that their relationship has turned south, but they aren’t sure how to fix their marriage. When Jake suggests going on a camping trip, it is met with skepticism. Ellen agrees, provided Jake joins them one Sunday at church. They go out into the national forest to camp at a lake Jake finds on the internet. When the trip goes awry, they find themselves lost and in a life or death situation. They must work together if they are to survive and return to civilization.
