A teenager adjusting to his new life in the backwoods of Kentucky discovers a terrifying supernatural secret in the forest near the farm of a mysterious local hermit. Eli (Spencer Daniels) is a typical 17-year-old who's just arrived in Kentucky with his parents when he begins working on a secluded farm owned by eccentric Waylon (Brad Dourif). Upon encountering the ethereal Amanda (Alexia Frost), Eli is completely mesmerized. Little does Eli realize the mysterious girl harbors a grim secret that is somehow tied to the rotting corpses hung from trees in the woods near Waylon's farm. Now the more Eli learns about the history of this cursed place, the more clear it becomes that for the damned, death is just the beginning.
