The series follows the search for the famous television host/explorer/wildlife expert Dr. Emmet Cole. He was last seen traveling down the Amazon River in the middle of South America and disappeared without a trace. Six months later his wife and son, Tess and Lincoln Cole, receive a beacon signal from him, indicating that he might be alive. This prompts the two to assemble a search party, but in order to fund the mission, they must allow Dr. Cole's ex-producer, Clark Quitely, to film a television documentary about the search for his last known whereabouts. It turns out that nobody in the search party, including Lena, the daughter of Dr. Cole's also-missing cameraman, is prepared for the horrible things they will discover when they follow the beacon's signal.
