Despite the horror of famine, friendship blossoms in the unlikeliest of places. Amidst the squalor of the workhouse, a fugitive lady of the manor and a young farm labourer rescue orphaned local children, and do their best to give them a home and save them from the fate of the paupers graveyard.


More than 150 years later, the new houses at Hillcrest should have been every couples dream home, but they are built on tainted ground. When the Earthmovers disturb the bones of the famine dead during construction, the resurrection of the malevolence and evil buried among the unmarked, overgrown graves results in a series of inexplicable but very real tragedies for the new homeowners.


A supernatural thriller from an exciting new voice in Irish Horror.
