Tarah Jackson died at sea. Late into the night of her funeral, the men who witnessed her death drink themselves into oblivion while wrestling with memories of a beastly encounter about which they dare not speak. Tarah's girlfriend, Uma, quietly wallows in her sorrow. Uma takes a bottle of rum and her fiddle to the sea. There she plays a song, beautiful and raw with grief. She drinks from the bottle, cries out to heaven and curses at the sea. As if to answer her dark prayer, a massive, many-tentacled monster rises up from the deep.
