There was a legend about the sugar cane fields. Everybody knew not to go in there after dark, especially under the light of the harvest moon. Andrew's Uncle Joe disappeared in there. The only trace ever found of him was his partially smoked cigar.
One October night, Andrew set out to discover what happened to Uncle Joe. He took his younger sister with him and went looking for his missing uncle.
