Moving to a small village in Ireland's Deep South would have been the last place Afro-American cop Otis Tweedy would have imagined he would be living. But when medically discharged from the force after receiving horrific injuries in the line of duty, his life plummets to an all time low. The turning point arrives when his Irish-born wife Sarah receives news that her favourite uncle has died and bequeathed her his house in Cappawhite, Sarah's home town. Feeling that sixties racist America has nothing more to offer them, they decide to sell up and move to Ireland. It isn't long, however, until they find out about the old house up the lane and the strange goings on there. Although warned by locals to stay away from the place, Sarah unwittingly gets involved with the entity that lurks there, plunging their lives into an unspeakable nightmare that threatens her very soul. Otis returns to America, to search out his old ex-partner, a full blood Lakota Sioux Indian, whom he believes is the only one who has the knowledge to help them and save his wife, but the news he receives shocks him, and he returns with a heavy heart.
