Also starring Simon Pegg, the high-stakes thriller follows Lauren Monroe (Collins), a prominent family woman and rising star in the New York District Attorney’s office, whose perfect life falls off the tracks following the death of her hedge fund tycoon father. When most of the family’s fortune is left to her mother and politician brother, Lauren receives only a small fraction of their millions along with a mysterious envelope containing directions to a hidden bunker deep in the woods. Inside the bunker, Lauren discovers an emaciated man on the brink of death, Morgan (Pegg), secretly imprisoned by her father for the last 30 years. Unsure of what to do next, Lauren quietly nurses Morgan back to health in the bunker so she can begin to unravel the incomprehensible situation her father left behind.
