Short Film

Shaken by the sudden death of her husband, Maria is taken by her lover James to his remote home in the countryside. The house is cold and uninviting, and encircled by an overgrown forest. As James tries to entice her into starting anew with him, a sense of overwhelming dread takes ahold of Maria. She starts to think that something out there is watching her.
