Rinus, the new Dutch boss of a Croatian marketing agency, organizes a weekend of white-water rafting and paintballing for his employees. The teambuilding exercise starts to go wrong on the very first day, when a tragic incident casts a shadow over their rafting trip. Next day, events escalate further during a paintball battle, as it dawns on the group that a local family is trying to kill them. As night falls, it becomes clear that the lives of the survivors will never be the same again.
