Ryan Reynolds stars in this claustrophobic suspense film. Paul Conroy (Reynolds) is a civilian truck driver working in Iraq in 2006 when his convoy is attacked. When he wakes up, he discovers he has been buried alive in a pine box with a Zippo lighter and a cellphone. As his oxygen supply dwindles, he makes telephone calls, but often gets only voice mail or is put on hold. He calls his family, his employer, the FBI and the State Department. Eventually his captors call him, and he learns he is being held for ransom. Surprisingly, the movie has some elements of humor.
