A group of space travelers is stranded on an uncharted corner of Earth's crust when their space cruiser crash lands during a routine flight. While searching for supplies, the cruiser's engineer discovers a secret storage facility for illegal chemical weapons and is exposed to the deadly substance, R.A.V.A.G.E.R. As a result, the engineer's blood reaches the boiling point causing disorientation and extreme aggression, and he is virtually unstoppable as he begins to infect others with the same deadly symptoms.
Time begins to run out for the survivors and the sole escape route is a shuttle with oxygen capacity for only two people. With moments to spare before the shuttle disengages from the mother ship, they are cornered by the engineer in what will be a final battle to the death -- a duel that will decide if mankind can overcome its own destructive creation.
