Follow documentary filmmaker Alice Lindstedt whose obsession with the vanishing residents of the old mining town, dubbed “The Lost Village,” has plagued her since she was a little girl. In 1959, her grandmother’s entire family disappeared in this mysterious tragedy, and ever since, the unanswered questions surrounding the only two people who were left—a woman stoned to death in the town center and an abandoned newborn—haunt her. She’s gathered a small crew of friends in the remote village to make a film about what really happened.
Not long after they’ve set up camp, mysterious things begin to happen. Equipment is destroyed. People go missing. As doubt breeds fear and their very minds begin to crack, one thing becomes startlingly clear to Alice:
They are not alone…
Come for the mounting horror and scares, but stay for a devastating examination of the nature of family secrets” The New York Times
