After investigating a series of mysterious deaths along the East Coast of the US, one scientist (Nana Gouvea) discovers a danger far worse than anyone can imagine. Now it's her job to convince other scientists, including Eric's character, before it's too late. A detective (Sizemore) becomes involved through the strange writings of a homeless man played by Beauchamp.

Story synopsis: Specialists gather in a top-secret facility to investigate a series of strange deaths on beaches along the Atlantic Ocean. One of the team's scientists (Nana Gouvea) examines video evidence to uncover a possible parasitic explanation for the fatalities. But when a determined detective (Tom Sizemore) sends her the crazed writings of a mysterious homeless man (Jonny Beauchamp), the scientist slowly learns that the actual threat may be more dangerous -- and far older -- than anyone ever imagined. Can she convince her colleagues (led by Eric Roberts) of the true danger before an ancient force rises from the sea to bring madness and death to all of humanity?
