A HAWK IN THE WOODS
Wednesday, May 1st
When newscaster Abby Waite is diagnosed with a potentially terminal illness, she decides to do the logical thing... break her sister Martha out of prison and hit the road. Their destination is the Waite family cabin in Minnesota where Abby plans a family reunion of sorts. But when you come from a family where your grandfather frequently took control of your body during your youth, where your mother tried to inhabit your mind and suck your youthful energies out of you, and where so many dark secrets - and bodies, even - are buried, such a family meeting promises to be nothing short of complicated.
