Plot Describe the plot: A strange mist has been in the Cambodian jungles for many years and nobody knows what it is. All they know is if something goes in, it never comes out. In present day, a plane of a corporation’s wealthy owner goes down, with his daughter onboard. He assembles a team led by the one man that has made it out alive, Eric Dane, and they head into it. Meanwhile, the mist is growing rapidly. They have to rescue the daughter and try to stop the mist from expanding all over the world. Describe the plot in detail: The story starts in the ancient city of Angkor Kol Ker. The water around the city has evaporated because of a drought and everybody is evacuating because

the mist is coming. Fifty warriors have stayed behind but they don’t last long. Then it goes to 1945.

At first, Dane doesn’t want to go, but after awhile, he agrees. Once at the

After some discussion, he agreed. Meanwhile, Ariana and her crew were stirring inside the plane. All except the pilots and a crewman had made it. But the weird thing about it was the top of the cockpit was cut clean off and one of the pilots was gone. When they entered it, one of the other crew was caught in a yellow beam of light and brought out of the plane and into the mist.
