A group of archaeologists was sent to Mexico to examine the ancient temple that had been accidentally discovered by a random man while he was flying a rented plane. The pyramid located on a plateau up in the mountains really seemed to be out of sight of scientific world so far.
The expedition was meant to shine a light on a brand new discovery. Spending a week in the wild, telling stories around a campfire and drinking hot tea enjoying stars at night - what a wonderful way to spend time. However, the archaeologists couldn't survive even three days, being drawn into the whirl of mystery and overwhelming fear. The cursed place was playing with their minds one by one, until one night... ice-cold dread, visions and the only wish - to escape.
Then there would be a number of failed attempts to clear things up and get back on track, but even that one accidental glance beyond the borders of common reality was enough to leave their minds ruined forever.
