Curtis had killed a man, and he had paid the price. Now free from prison and moving his way across England searching for a place to begin a new life, Curtis slowly realises he is being shadowed by mysterious pursuers and is entering a very dangerous, stealthy game of hide-and-seek. Curtis finds himself in a desolate seaside village where a beautiful woman and a deserted house will be crucial in the desperate - and murderous - drama about to be played out on the English Coast.
