Paul Conroy is an American citizen serving as a U.S. contractor in Iraq. Painfully aware of his dangerous duties overseas, Conroy has lived a stressful life, transporting goods to civilians since the start of the War on Terrorism. But now, on this fateful night, Conroy wakes to find himself buried six feet underground inside a wooden coffin. With only a lighter and a cell phone to his benefit, he must adapt to his surroundings and think of a way out. With only so much air, it is literally a race against the clock.
