Synopsis: A Type 1 Diabetic cyclist is run off a mountain road by a distracted driver and finds herself in a desperate race for survival. Losing both her diabetic supplies and phone in the accident  Brie, our cyclist, has no way to raise her blood sugar, or contact help; instead she has an extremely small time window in which to reach safety before she falls into diabetic coma. 

As the clock ticks down Brie’s blood sugars drop so dangerously low that she can no longer tell the difference between hallucination and reality. The villian persuing her becomes her own mind and body turning on her. As she struggles to reach safety, her fears and desperation transport her into a bizarre fever dream where she is forced to confront the mistakes of her past head on.
