Nick has inherited his grandparents’ home with acreage and has decided to live there. He has earned enough dollars in the big city to retire although he is only in his forties. The howling from the one rickety shed puts him on edge, but he found nothing there. His grandfather was found at the bottom of the shed where tunnels run in different directions. Nick realizes there is something weird, but will wait a while before investigating. What does the cold from below have to do with the well that wasn’t dug? Why did the well crew refuse to do any more work? He enjoys a meal at the local café. People welcome him when they realize who he is. The neighbor warns him about the shed and then a sister of a childhood friend arrives and he realizes the “Twig” as they called her has become a beautiful woman called Sam.
