Once upon an area, now known as the "X-Zone", an environmental disaster occurred. Now this land honor is separated from the mainland, there is nothing human left, but from a scientific point of view it is an extremely important object for research. But besides the inaccessibility there is another problem: all expeditions (and there were already 11 of them) either did not return at all, or proved to be fatal for their participants. Those bits of information that the scientist has received make it possible to judge that in the territory of the "Zone X" nature absorbed for decades everything that remained of civilization, but something unknown there still inhabits, since each time the groups faced completely different types of hostile manifestation . According to the latest data, there is a danger of penetration beyond the exclusion zone of a certain force that may pose a threat to the rest of the world. What exactly is going on and it is necessary to learn the participants of the twelfth expedition, which included four women researchers. As scientists expected, "Zone X" prepared for them a "decent" reception. One of the main "serious" sci-fi films of 2017, for the creation of which two heavy athletes of the genre - director, screenwriter and writer Alex Garland ("Out of the car", "Judge Dredd", "Beach", "28 days later") joined together and the winner of the award "Nebula", science fiction writer Jeff Vandermeer.
