The film follows the story of a young and daring treasure hunter, Scarlett Marlowe (Perdita Weeks), who is determined to complete her late father's life work by finding the Philosopher's Stone, an alchemical substance said to have the ability to grant immortality, and the key to unlocking the doors of life and death. In her quest to find the Stone, Scarlett and her team of explorers delve deep into the catacombs beneath the city of Paris, where they encounter a series of harrowing challenges and supernatural forces that test their courage and sanity.

The story begins as Scarlett, an educated scholar with expertise in language and history, sets off to the streets of Paris, assembling a crew of four to explore the crypts below the city.

As they descend into the catacombs, the team discovers an intricate network of tunnels and passageways, marking the beginning of their descent into hell. Along the way, they encounter several mind-bending puzzles and tests, designed to weed out the unworthy, as well as disturbing illusions of their own personal demons. There are also otherworldly creatures that lurk in the darkness, threatening their safety.

The deeper Scarlett and her team descend into the underground catacombs, the more they become trapped in a world of their nightmares. It soon becomes clear that the only way to survive is to face their greatest fears and demons. As they delve deeper into the catacombs, the line between reality and madness blurs, and the team is forced to confront the past and present traumas that haunt them.
