We all have secrets, and after thirty years, Mike Riley's secret has come
back to haunt him. He's returned to the old Massachusetts farmhouse
he knew as a child, only to find the ghost of his little brother, Patrick,
waiting for him, and as Micheal's grandmother had warned; he's mad as
hell. The unlikely reunion sets into motion a calamity of events,
culminating in a life or death struggle for Michael and anyone else that
gets in Patrick's way.
In time, Mike Riley may come to know the meaning of brotherly love,
but not until he learns to let go of his past and accept the dirty truth
about Patrick, the boy he abandoned so very long ago.
