Saul Abercrombie, a British self-made tycoon, is dying of throat cancer; his last wish is to replant the forest that once grew on his coastal estate in Pembrokeshire, Wales. He hires Tom Curtis, an arboreal specialist, to oversee the vast undertaking. Soon after his arrival at Pembrokeshire, Tom begins to learn the bloody legends of the land. He also learns dark secrets about his own ancestry. As the planting of the trees progresses, an ancient evil engulfs the estate, releasing hideous creatures that threaten to suck the life out of all who are laboring there.

From official release/information:

Product Description: Billionaire Saul Abercrombie owns a vast tract of land on the Pembrokeshire coast.  His plan is to restore the ancient forest that covered the area before medieval times, and he employs young arboreal expert Tom Curtis to oversee this massively ambitious project.

Saul believes that restoring the land to its original state will rekindle those spirits that folklore insists once inhabited his domain. But the re-planting of the forest will revive an altogether darker and more dangerous entity -- and Saul's employee Tom will find himself engaging in an epic, ancient battle between good and evil.  A battle in which there can be only one survivor.
