Six years ago NASA discovered the possibility of alien life within our solar system. A probe was launched to collect samples, but crashed upon re-entry over Central America. Soon after, new life forms began to appear and grow. In an effort to stem the destruction that resulted, half of Mexico was quarantined as an INFECTED ZONE. Today, the American and Mexican military still struggle to contain the massive creatures… Garreth Edwards’ feature film debut, Monsters, is story about a journalist, Andrew Kaulder (Scoot McNairy), who is hired by his boss to assist his daughter, Samantha Wynden (Whitney Able), through the infected zone in Mexico to the US border. Though Andrew has no interest in chaperoning Samantha across the border, their relationship begins to grow into something more as they boat, walk, and drive through the infected zone to safety.
