Paloma Aiza is hired as companion to a sickly old woman who tells haunted tales. Holed away in an ancient mansion atop the highest point of the isolated island, Paloma observes the strange doings of the clannish villagers as they remember a mysterious death that happened many years ago. Unease growing, Paloma finds her only friend in the village doctor, but even his patience is tested when she starts to witness strange and unnatural happenings around the dangerous cove that the villagers so treasure for their pyres and misty memorials.
