Leon and his assistant Susana are searching for the source of a deadly virus contracted by a missionary on this same island. Accompanied by three ancient marine corps, Bear and Reyes under the commandment of Valentine, a famous spider scientist, Henry Capri and a native guide, the expedition directs to a little small indigenous village in the middle of the jungle. Leon suspects that the virus discovered had been produced by an unknown spider. Arriving in the village, this one is completely deserted and abandoned. While Reyes finds death in atrocious sufferings, provoked by ticks that have installed under his epidermis, the group is attacked by a frightful unidentified enemy. Valentine, who is in charge of the security of the members of the expedition, decides to step back in the next morning, having nothing more to hope in this mission. But Mercer doesn't share his opinion.

As he was in the pursuit of an alien spaceship, the former finally hit it and after the crash, an entity had propagated on the island, killing the poor pilot.
