Synopsis

Writer Peter Crane envisages an idyllic lifestyle when he and his family move to the New England town of Saugatruck, and for a time all is well. When a strange woman arrives at the house requesting Peter to help her son, Chris, who has been charged with murder, he agrees, only for the local residents to suddenly grow hostile towards him. The Cranes soon find themselves outcasts in the community, and the atmosphere becomes still more oppressive when a burning scarecrow is left hanging from a tree outside their house. It seems that Peter has seriously upset everyone with his attempt to find skeletons in the local closets.
