Jack McKinnon, loving father, loyal employee and avid fisherman is going up to his summer property on the north end of Andover Lake, BC in 1989 to open it for the family’s first visit in May.
A sudden spring squall turns his 1984 Unsinkable Thunder Craft over, his dog a Rhodesian Ridgeback, who was a good swimmer, drowns. Jack is a very poor swimmer, but he manages to dog paddle to shore. Exhausted, wet and cold, he finds a locked cabin, pushes the door and doorframe in and starts a fire in the stove. He sleeps till morning, and doesn’t know where he is, but manages to find railway tracks and walks back to the small town of Merriweather where he left his van.
The neighbouring Carling RCMP are called. The same day, police and Jack are unable to locate the cabin where he thinks it is. However they do find a cabin with an upside down Indian Dream Catcher over a pushed in door on the other side of the lake. Jack is drawn into the cabin.
Jack goes back home to Langley, but leaves his family to go back to the cabin, and disappears.
Weird things begin to happen to his wife and son, soon they are told their summer property is too close to the Ancient Indian Graveyard at the north end of the lake.
Jack is found but unable to remember anyone. He’s sent to the hospital in the local town. He doesn’t know his wife Rikki, discharges himself and disappears again.
Meanwhile, an Indian Band whose Reserve boarders the Fraser River flats, chooses a new shaman who comes from Eastern Canada. He convinces the local Bands that he can bring the old ways back and creates an Indian uprising. It fizzles out. The shaman turns to the Ancient Indian Graveyard at the north end of Andover Lake. Things change and now the shaman wants to own the land in his own name, and build a gaming casino, hotel and RV park.
Seven years pass, and the Insurance Company advises Rikki that she has waited long enough and her husband should be declared dead. But Jack turns up again.
But the question of why Jack was taken and why he couldn’t stay home, what did the cabin and Soul Catcher have to do with anything, and why did the shaman finally decide to kill Jack are still out there.
Good friends, a loyal wife and son never gave up hope, with help coming from an unexpected source, Jack is able to resist the spell that has kept him captive all these years.
The foreseen events of the past finally catch up with Jack McKinnon and his family and friends. With the help of an Old Man (Medicine Man) and a caring Indian nurse the truth is finally told.
