In the year of 1924, somewhere in the Caribbean, Rainsford was taking a trip to go trophy hunting. Little did he know that one simple mistake would send him flying into the sea. He would be left behind to shout for help with nothing but water surrounding him.
He met a man named General Zaroff. He was a great hunter and even told Rainsford that he hunted men. His worst fear had come true and now he is being hunted. This internal conflict forced him to stay alive for three days to play the game because he had refused to play Ivan's game(which would have been torture).
