An abandoned wooden house deep in the woods leads an archaeologist/film-maker on a journey into the history of a family. Created as part of an archaeological project, this literally haunting story dramatizes a personal exploration of the history and folklore of an abandoned farming community in the Piedmont of North Carolina. The area was alternately occupied and abandoned from the 1700s to the 1900s. This film includes a ghostly encounter and features interviews with descendants of the original Euro-American inhabitants of the community.
