Trisha has only veered off the trail to get away from the bickering of her brother and recently divorced mother. She doesn't think there's any chance of getting lost.
Except in her panic to get back on the path, Trisha takes a turning that leads into the tangled undergrowth. Deeper and deeper in the terrifying woods.
