Synopsis: A curse has befallen the town of Aberdeen, or so a restless young man named Sid believes. Hearing his brother Bryan recount his logging injury and encounter with a strange creature in the woods, not to mention the general malaise that seems to grip the city’s inhabitants, only strengthens his case. He desires to leave, but when Bryan dies under strange circumstances, Sid commits himself to finding answers. He puts his desires aside, for better or worse, and travels deep into the heart of the forest to confront the source of the curse itself.
