Blood is spilled. A finger is lost. A monster is born.
When a garden mulch pile takes on terrifying new life following a freak accident it will push a fragile family beyond the breaking point.
But sometimes the devil you know is far worse than the monster you fear.
And through it all one broken child will learn that the Truth isn't stranger than fiction. It's just harder.
