Early one summer morning a young man, with a secret stashed away in a duffel bag, emerges from the forest. In a nearby village he asks around for work, but the farmers, suspicious to the point of hostility, are not very forthcoming.

Something sinister is lurking under the immaculate surface of this picturesque little world – and it is slowly drawing him in.
