After surviving a car accident, a young woman wakes up in an underground cellar, where most of the action takes place. She fears she has been abducted by a survivalist, who tells her he saved her life and that a worldwide chemical attack has left Earth’s surface uninhabitable. Uncertain what to believe, she decides she must escape, no matter what dangers she may face outside.
The film started as a script titled The Cellar, but during production under Bad Robot Productions, it evolved to become what producer J. J. Abrams describes as “a blood relative” of the 2008 film Cloverfield.
