Plot
Eccentric Niko lives in London, a young writer in a bit of a dream world: telling his mother back in Greece that he is a busy, successfully published author with a beautiful girlfriend. Unfortunately he’s been spending beyond his means to keep up the pretense, and the market downturn has arrived. Losing his lowly temp job, with no girlfriend and under pressure to pay off his debts, Niko runs away to his abandoned 16th century family home in Siatista, a picturesque but small fur trading post in the mountains of Northern Greece. He's hoping to find the inspiration and focus to at last write a viable novel.

Attempting to keep his predicament secret from his mother and the locals, Niko confines himself to the house. As the locals begin to take notice of him, not necessarily in a good way, Niko struggles to make sense of his haunting family past. Inside the ancient walls of his inheritance the curtain that separates him from the beyond is drawn open and Niko is beckoned to take the same road that had destroyed his father.
