On the eve of their one year wedding anniversary, Jules (Emmy Winner, Brittany Allen) and Jackie, played by Hannah Emily Anderson (JIGSAW, USA’s THE PURGE), become embroiled in a merciless fight for their lives when they find themselves pitted against the most unexpected of adversaries: each other.
