When a local lake catches fire, a group of teens set out to see the spectacle for themselves—but not everything goes as planned.
A very rare natural phenomenon is causing quite a stir in Rivière-aux-Corbeaux: Lake Kijikone has caught fire and grown into a veritable inferno. When the disaster occurs, an old local legend re-emerges, and a group of local teens decide to find out if the stories are true.
Deep in the woods, one of the teens shares a secret so shocking that the group splits up—and the real nightmare begins.
