When you try to make a difference…it might cost you your life.
After everything that’s happened, Grace moves to the Everglades to live with her grandmother and hang out with old man Rex, Birdee’s “friend with benefits”. Grace befriends Dylan, Rex’s nephew, and Sadie, a die-hard teen activist. Sadie spends her time leading protests against the roadside zoos that run rampant in Florida with a total disregard for animals or the flimsy law.
One day while out in the Everglades, Grace and her friends rescue an abused—and endangered—Florida panther. When the animal runs off, Grace follows it to Uncle Bob’s, a roadside zoo that is illegally filled with a variety of exotic animals. Before she can rescue the panther, Grace and her friends are kidnapped by the ruthless owner and dragged deep into the Everglades for a hunting challenge.
Only this time, they are the prey.
During a sick game of cat and mouse, Grace and her friends are offered one chance at survival. With a small head start and very few supplies, only time and skill stand between the hunter and the hunted. But out in the Everglades, there are other dangers that are far worse.
