Titan tells the story of Emma (Collins), a strong-willed young musician on a quest to understand the life of her environmental activist older sister, who was killed years before in a tragic fall.

Emma soon finds herself in serious peril, forced to face off with Mother Nature in a relentless fight for survival.
