A world-weary freelance author in need of work and a young female consultant, who’s an expert on the history of 60s music, are hired by an avid record producer, who plans to make a nice buck by re-releasing the albums of an extremely popular 60s rock duo consisting of two wild brothers that simply disappeared from the scene in 1963 without an explanation, and write a “Where are they now” piece on them to promote the re-release.
The pair discovers that the last gig the duo ever played was in a small, remote, ghostly village that’s not on any recent map. As they approach the village, the woman’s repressed memories of a traumatic event from her childhood begin to emerge.
