After being turfed out of their bunker, Sarah does everything she can to get her pregnant daughter Lilly to the safety of another underground settlement. If the brutal wilderness wasn't a challenge enough, the imminent threat of a huge creature is constantly there.

The director had already sourced creature sounds so the bulk of the project involved sound designing everything else; fleshing out and building the atmosphere across all scenes, deepening the intensity and tension of the film.

Creative tasks ranged from making the forest seem more alive, foley recordings of creaking wood footsteps inside the eerie house; to character interactions like arguments, dream like states and unknown alien forces moving earth into the air.

The dialogue was captured on set well but still required some noise reduction and fine balancing within the mix. Two final audio mixes were created, one for online streaming and a theatrical version.
