Beneath the seemingly tranquil surface of an old English village lie murder, incest, and mystery. Alwyn Maude, a handsome young man, commits a senseless murder - a horrifying fact that somehow seems quintessentially modern. Alwyn is contrasted against his antiquated father and uncle, revealing the tensions between past and present and the shortcomings of both.
