The nuclear apocalypse has decimated humanity. 300 of the ultra rich elite take refuge in a luxury bunker called The Sanctuary. Then the killings begin. Something else is in there.
It always has been.
We begin in 1968. Eccentric billionaire Joseph Jennings seeks a location for a nuclear bunker. His assistant stumbles upon the ideal place - an cavern in Alaska, deep in the mountains.
The cavern has been used by humans before. It is embellished with ancient, eerie paintings of figures surrounding an altar that appears to be worshiping a large dark creature.
Work on the bunker begins. Homes are built, medical facilities developed, water sources tapped, food stored.
The disappearance of a survey team passes almost unnoticed.
Jennings behaviour becomes erratic. He rarely leaves the cavern and is soon obsessed with the cave paintings, convinced that he’s in touch with a creature that he names “Oblivion Black”. Believing that Oblivion Black wants him to find an object called the Totem, Jennings disappears, leaving behind his journal. Found by his assistant, the journal soon falls into the hands of Rodachenko, another Jennings employee.
50 years later and The Sanctuary has been transformed into an exclusive retreat for the world’s wealthiest. Danny Keins – an entrepreneur – buys an apartment there but soon tires of his latest trinket.
But war looms. Seeking an escape, Danny flees to The Sanctuary, which is soon in lock down as residents watch the nuclear apocalypse unfold.
Then the killings begin.
