In an attempt to spice up game night, a group of friends travel to a remote campsite on a quest to become the first team to win the Look Alive challenge. The game is simple; survive the night and win $10,000. The only rule is this: look out for each other.

Thinking this an easy challenge, the group settles in for the night around a bonfire near a cabin. While partying the night away, they fail to heed the only rule. One by one, members of the group venture off, never to be seen again. Frightened survivors close ranks in an attempt to keep everyone in sight. Through an unfortunate series of events, more perish until only two remain.

The final two survivors lock themselves in their van. They go to great lengths to keep eyes on each other. One goes to start the van and they loose visual contact. Game over!

As the sun rises, the game host arrives to find the van empty. Dusk approaches along with another van full of gamers ready to take on the Look Alive challenge.
