Moments after miscarrying, Melissa receives the call that her husband, a victim of random violence, will not survive the night. After watching him pass from life she starts home, and in the throes of an oncoming breakdown she is pursued by hoodlums that perceive her as a vulnerable target. But on that night, with her life in pieces and with nothing to lose, Melissa is to be nobody’s prey. Later, taking the advice of her nurturing twin brother, Melissa leaves for Michabo Lake, a small town in Ohio where the siblings spent their adolescence. Once there, she hopes to reassemble the pieces of her life in preparation of moving on. The town, with its populace of elitists that merely saw Melissa and her brother as outsiders, had never welcomed the siblings, and only made time to mock them. Melissa is older and stronger now, and she is ready for any former tormentors whose paths she may cross. But is she ready for the true entity, waiting just beyond the veil, that for its own dark purpose has orchestrated her return?
