Plot – Spoilers:
Steve takes his girlfriend Jenny for a weekend getaway to a lake, deep in the English woods. The place is soon to be converted into a gated community and Steve figures it’s the best place to propose to her, away from humanity and all.
Jenny on her part isn’t that impressed with the idea of going to what was once an abandoned quarry. Her tacit disapproval sends Steve into a tizzy trying to impress and assert his masculinity in a countryside town where the folk are rough and contemptuous of his city ways.
Just when the romantic couple finally begin to enjoy the remote lake, a gang of teenagers turn up and turn on asshole mode. Steve who’s been feeling emasculated for a while decides to take them on, while Jenny – who works with kids in her day job – is part amused and part nervous.
Shit goes down.
