    • Synopsis
    • Having been forced to bear witness to a far-from-idyllic reality, CLAUDIA takes refuge in fairytale...
      She and her brother, CLYDE, are frequently abused by their alcoholic father, MURPHY. Yet, when the brutish man tumbles to his death, the children go in search of their MOTHER, who they believe has left the home and is suggested to be living just beyond the wood in a nearby village… Seeking love and solace they leave their old world behind.
      Starved, tired and afraid, the children travel through a very eerie forest filled with dark mystery. A small bird befriends them, directing them out of the forest to a clearing that leads them to a large manor house. From within, they are met by a wonderful old woman, Grazelda, who showers them with food, good will, and magical toys. The children are seduced into thinking that they have found their sanctuary.
      Before long, it becomes clear that first impressions are often misleading! Claudia starts seeing and hearing voices… those of curious spirits… the spirits of children, long deceased, yet unable to depart this earthly plane. When questioned by Claudia, Grazelda’s demeanor starts to unravel. The old woman starts to become more demanding and irritable with the children. Claudia meets DUNWICH, the old toymaker, who is enslaved within a dark cellar of the house. A dark and menacing overtone takes over. The amiable old woman slowly begins to transform into a monstrous hag with an eye to consume the life from Clyde.
      Claudia attempts to untangle the mystery of the manor in order to win their freedom and inadvertently those of the trapped spirits. With the help of the old toymaker, the old hag is slain!
      Moments later in a blast of sunlight the children are transported back into their own reality, where Claudia discovers that the whole journey has been a figment of her own imagination…The journey which unlocks the truth that is hidden deep within the recesses of the mind … The journey that takes you to a place where nightmares end and true horror begins.
