Michael Spencer, a soil scientist, and his fiancée, Tasha Kerwin, are driving from Seattle to San Francisco. Near Mount Shasta, a pick-up truck forces their Torrent to crash. Michael wakes up at the isolated, snowbound Trinity-Shasta Clinic, suffering a ruptured disc in his spine and post-traumatic amnesia.

The staff insists that he is Gregory John Merrick, a marine engineer. Strangers begin masquerading as his sister and mom. Part of Michael's rehabilitation program involves him moving in with a famous writer, Isobel Weston, and serving as her companion.

At night, he awakes to see people standing in the snow covered lawn, staring at him. Upon rushing outside to confront them, he finds nothing, not even their footprints in the snow. Fearing he is going insane, Michael tries to leave, but soon learns that no one ever escapes from the bizarre community of Trinity, California.

From official release/information:

Product Description: Tasha and Michael are driving back home to San Fransisco when a pick-up rams their car, forcing them off the road. The car spins, and Tasha hits her head. Michael, terrified that Tasha is dead, tries to free them from the wreckage, but before he can do so, he's blinded by the light of an oncoming vehicle.

He wakes to find himself in the hospital of a small town in the foothills of the Cascade Mountains. What is he doing there? Who is he? He can't even remember his own name – Gregory Merrick, according to the doctor.

As he convalesces, he becomes acquainted with the community and forms a relationship with a smart, pretty local girl. But as he recovers his mobility, he begins to notice odd things happening. People disappearing. Strangers being ignored by the locals, as if they weren't even there. Then his new girlfriend vanishes, and he begins to think the unthinkable ... could he actually be dead? The truth, however, is far more shocking.
