Sightings of a strange girl on the outskirts of the small Australian town of Thorn Tree coincide with the outbreak of a deadly sickness.

The girl appears in people’s nightmares, beckoning them into nothingness.

As more people she knows succumb to the illness, Maggie will have to act fast to root out its cause.
