An intense psychological drama centred around four people in a remote country village -, an elderly married couple whose relationship is harboured in tragedy, their lonely neighbour Murray, and Ronnie, a young pregnant woman recently abandoned by her boyfriend. Meanwhile a mysterious someone or something is killing the local animals and leaving behind a grisly trail.
