One hot summer's day, John Cole decides to leave his life behind. When his car breaks down on an isolated road, he goes looking for help and stumbles upon a grand but dilapidated house. Its residents claim to have been waiting for him....
There's Hester, their controlling host; Alex and Claire, siblings full of childlike wonder; the mercurial Eve; Elijah - a faithless former preacher; and chain-smoking Walker, wreathed in smoke and hostility. Who are these people? And what do they intend for John?
