A wrong turn off the highway finds David lost in Camdigan. He would never have gone to Camdigan by choice. But then, no one did. It is an eerie, otherworldly town, where the sky is gray, the air is gray, even the people are gray in attitude and manner. The only glimmer of life is Beth, a young girl who claims to be the reincarnation of his deceased wife. She pleads with him to leave. "Everyone here is dead," she says. "We move and think, we feel, we even grow, but this place is dead. We don't sleep very often, we breathe out of habit. We grow and can hurt ourselves, but we won't ever die because it's too late for that." But David refuses to escape without her, even if an army of the dead should rise up to stop him.
