Maddie has lived a relatively normal life in the northern hills of Scotland, in a small village where the men and women harvest and work by day and bunker down at night, when the evil spirits are abundant. Then, one day, unknown travelers come to town, with them a handsome wood carver. Quiet and withdrawn, the nameless wood carver drew Maddie’s attention quickly. Soon, Maddie and the wood carver fall in love. But when death and evil falls upon her village, Maddie discovers that her beloved wood carver is to blame. Cursed with the evil spirit of a werewolf, the wood carver is taken over on the nights of a full moon and kills everything in sight. Determined to protect the ones she loves and armed with the cure, Maddie must make the ultimate sacrifice.
