1903 Carlton, Pennsylvania - children are being forced to work in an underground mine by local elders. When a routine blast goes terribly wrong, the mine collapses leaving the children buried alive. Present day sees recently widowed Karen Tunny [Lori Heuring- Mulholland Drive] and her two daughters relocating to Carlton, Pennsylvania. They have inherited a house from the family of Karen’s late husband. After settling in, Karen starts to uncover details of the town’s tragic history. But the crimes of the past have been revisited as the children left for dead almost a century ago have returned in ghoulish form to seek bloody revenge by hunting, killing and devouring their victims. Karen and her daughters must survive with the help of grizzled neighbour Aaron Hanks [Ben Cross- Exorcist The Beginning], as the children’s hunger for redemption is appeased.
