Fraught economic pressures force Adam Hitchens, a London-based conservationist, to take a job surveying an Irish forest. By relocating his family deep in the idyllic countryside he hopes this will allow them to start afresh.

Not everyone approves of their arrival however. A farmer with strong beliefs in local tradition and folklore warns of danger if Adam does not stop unsettling the ancient, sacred forests with his tests and assessments.

When someone breaks into the house at night, with the apparent intention of harming their child, the worried couple believes the locals are taking it a step further, intent on driving them out.

But when the police aren’t able to catch the elusive intruders, events take a turn for the unexplainable as their home comes under terrifying attack. Stranded in the middle of nowhere, Adam and Clare must fight to protect their child as they face the true nature of a malevolent and unspeakable evil.
