Your fate is never sealed.
Paul Conroy (Ryan Reynolds) is not ready to die but when he wakes up six feet underground in a wooden coffin with only a mobile phone and lighter – time is not on his side. Buried alive with no idea of who put him there or why, life for Paul becomes a hellish struggle for survival. Poor reception, a rapidly draining battery and a dwindling oxygen supply are his worst enemies in a tightly confined race against time. Paul has only 90 minutes to be rescued before his worst nightmare comes true.
