Victoria Andalucci and her 16-year-old son, Tyler, are enjoying a fun-filled vacation at Club Paradise in Mexico. A typical teenager, Tyler spends his days on the beach with the other teens from Club Chevere, while his mother attends a conference and explores Mexico. Her quest for adventure is definitely quenched, as she ventures out of the resort and finds herself alone and in a perilous fight for her life! Will she survive the treacherous predicament long enough for someone to save her?
