The protagonist is Becky who is into mountaineering with her husband Dan, but a freak accident occurs while they are rock climbing and Dan dies. Becky is unable to heal from her grief after losing her husband and starts isolating herself from everyone, including her father, who had told her not to marry Dan in the first place. Becky’s friend, fellow climber, Hunter shows up and drags Becky along with her to seek more of that thrill that has been missing in her life. Becky, being an adrenaline junkie, agrees to climb a humongous old radio tower which is situated in the middle of a desert, along with Hunter. She aims to conquer her fear and get back to her normal self by accomplishing the climb. However, when they reach the top, the rusty ladder which helped them up crumbles down, and the two girls are now stuck on the tower with their fates undecided.
Not only are they stuck atop a tower with no way to reach the ground, but they are also stuck atop a tower that is in a deserted location, and no one is going to show up anytime soon to help them down. Becky and Hunter had not informed any friends or family about their little adventure beforehand. As a result, no one really knows their exact location. Hunter has thousands of Instagram followers who are aware of her climbing plans, and Hunter has been documenting their journey toward the tower on her social media. They could have reached out to her social media followers for help with ease if only they had some mobile network at the top. Hunter’s Instagram posts won’t go through to her followers, and nobody is coming to their rescue. Some men show up and steal their car from the bottom of the tower as well, which takes away their little hope of getting discovered by any passerby. The girls try to work their intellect in order to get down the tower, but all their efforts fail miserably, and as time ticks away, they are left with no food or water.
After an attempt to fly their drone toward a diner at a distance doesn’t work out, the girls realize that sending a message through their phone is the only option. But to receive a network on their phone, someone needs to climb farther down the tower and make an attempt to contact someone through text message. Hunter offers to climb down, but she crashes on the dishes and is seemingly injured. Becky has a moment of lucidity, and she realizes that Hunter actually passed away days ago after the fall, and she has been hallucinating the presence of her friend. Becky was having hallucinations due to dehydration and lack of food and rest. The following day, Becky feasts on a vulture in order to survive and makes a last attempt to save herself. She climbs down to the dish and texts her father, attaches the phone to Hunter’s corpse, and shoves it down the tower, after which the message is finally transmitted. Becky’s father arrives with the emergency services and reconciles with his daughter.
The film is now available for viewing on Blu-ray and DVD.
