In Lake Maracaibo, in the northwestern part of Venezuela, a long-hidden extraterrestrial artifact underneath the ocean floor triggers a disaster. The U.S. military launches an expedition, sending a cutting-edge team of international researchers to the source of a magnetic instability that’s destroying any electronics in the region.
Inside the large artifact is a chamber that’s large enough for the researchers to enter. After a shocking death, the scientists from the US, Europe and Russia realize that it is a teleportation device. But they soon face a fundamental question: Why do those who enter the chamber fall into a coma? Are they traveling to other places, or is it all just an illusion? Dream or reality, the other side of the teleporter turns out to be a hell that puts not only the team, but the entire project to the test – because they are not alone out there.
