An otherworldly force opens a gate in a remote mountain range and unleashes an alien organism into the forest. Once open a shield is placed over the entire area blocking all communications in or out of the zone. It then releases a pulse every 30 minutes locking everything inside the shield into a checkpoint. If anything destroys the gate, everything within the shield is reset back to the previous checkpoint creating a loop in time.
The organism itself is highly infectious and any living creature it touches mutates and joins the invading force. Survivors caught within the shield attempt to escape and stop the organism from leaving, but something keeps destroying the gate, resetting time, and changing their fates.
