Pucci will join Jane Levy who plays Mia, a young woman trying to kick a drug addiction. Her friends take her to a remote cabin where they discover a Book Of The Dead. An archaeologist’s tape recording reveals that the ancient text was discovered among the Khandarian ruins of a Sumerian civilization.
