Written by Tom Hayes
Directed by Brian Zoldessy
After attending the funeral of their father, two adult siblings are stranded in a remote area next to their family plot. With a storm threatening and strange sounds coming from the nearby forest, 40-ish Ben and his younger sister Sam are forced to leave the plot on foot. As they walk, the two re-hash events of the past. They both air their grievances until the strange sounds begin to take physical form, forcing them into an abandoned house. Strangely, the house is not entirely empty and not entirely unfamiliar. There, they discover a truth they did not know, and come to terms with their shared history.
