Lost in the mist in the Lake District, the lives of six strangers become entwined when they seek shelter within a deserted old house. All are running from different things - Amanda from a murder charge; City Boy Mark from financial ruin; Jilly from something she dare not confront; Angus and Dawn from his wife.The house has been recently occupied. The lights are on, a fire still burns, there's a half-eaten meal on the table. But then they discover that the phone is dead and the TV cable has been sliced through. Something far worse awaits them here from which they can never escape . . .
