A haunting visage peering out from the trees sends Nicholas Close tumbling from his motorcycle - setting in motion a series of terrible events that leave him a widower surrounded by startling hallucinations. He see ghosts. They don't say a word but they are seemingly forced to repeat their final, harrowing moments in an endless loop before his eyes.

Fearing for his sanity, and with nowhere else to go, Nicholas returns to his childhood home. Tallong is a sleepy suburb filled with an eccentric cast of characters and a host of memories from his past... all leading to the overgrown woods on Carmichael Road. As Nicholas attempts to reconnect with his estranged family, he becomes entangled in a disturbing series of disappearances and murders. He is now both a police suspect and the target of a malignant force that draws him to an old secret waiting in the heart of the woods.

To stop Tallong's violent history from repeating itself, Nicholas will have to face his greatest fears and discover what lies at the end of the path.
