There are terrible things happening in the desert unexplainable, frightening things. Tragic, inexplicable incidents ever since she arrived. The Coltrane family's life has been devastated by an untimely death. Widowed Helen Coltrane (Melora Walters 'Big Love'), along with her teenage son (Jackson Rathbone - Twilight, The Last Airbender ) and daughter, are given shelter by her reclusive and quirky gun-loving brother-in-law. As they grapple with the reality of their shattered, altered life and twist of fate, coincidence steps in with a seemingly lovely foster child (Sofia Vassilieva - TV's 'Medium') who appears touting a story that Helen's husband had pledged to take her in. And as they do, a macabre story of deception unfolds
