Synopsis

Zach lives with his dog in a big house in the middle of the pristine wilderness of Oregon’s forests. He is a somewhat of a loner who enjoys taking long hikes in the woods. During one of his walks, Zach runs into an old friend of his, Ellyn, who joins him. As the days go by, Zach and Ellyn become increasingly convinced something weird is hiding in the forest, an unusual and disconcerting presence that manifests itself through light and sound phenomena that would be otherwise hard to explain. The invasion of two suspicious neighbors complicates the matter further. Is there really something weird going on or is it just their imagination?
