Casey Maldonado is haunted by the deaths of her husband and young son, and so she escapes to the quiet town of Armstrong, Idaho. Her traveling companion, invisible to all but Casey, is Death. She finds a job and guest room with the proprietor of the small general store, Vern and his ill wife, Dottie. Casey captures a teen spray-painting nasty graffiti on the store's wall. The town shuns Dottie and blames Vern for jilting his fiancée to marry an outsider --- 45 years ago. The woman's still stalking Vern today. Casey finds a hateful letter accusing Dottie of tragedy based on a Halloween party, a fatality and a woman missing for 45 years. When Dottie dies in the hospital, brutality overrides grief. A resident notifies the three attackers, who arrive to finish what they started with Casey. Finally, the painful truth explodes in violence based on revenge.
