When a man's secretive past threatens to consume him, he must choose between deceiving his wife and losing her for all time.

The newlywed couple Jack and Liz move into their new house on an otherwise uninhabited island, and soon a nearly-forgotten arson casts a fiery shadow over their marital bliss, the mysterious forest surrounding their home, and the strange creature living there.
