In 18th-century Tipperary, ominous clouds loom over Duncullen Estate.

Are they created by mystical forces? Or a family history of insanity?

Young heir Richard yearns for an academic life. His father insists he abandon his foppish dreams and run the estate like a man. Is he destined for a dismal life not his own?

Fleeing obscene poverty, Eveleen joins Duncullen’s staff where scrawny and tattered, she is mocked. Loneliness draws her and Richard together. As their secret, forbidden romance blooms so does Eveleen’s risk of dismissal. Fiercely in love, she ignores the prospect of eviction and starvation.

Richard’s father is hell-bent on twisting his son into his own image. Pressures intensify. Richard becomes plagued by gruesome visions.

He will stop the torture the only way he can.

A killing.
