The catch? It sits amidst a thick woodland considered the “Chasing Ground of the Gods.” This is consecrated domain to the Native Americans that once (still?) occupied it, and undesirable guests are said to confront unavoidable passing.
Nonsense. On the other hand so thinks Marcus, liberated by lowliness or judgment skills. So he, Stella, and her sister, Lydia (Ardis Barrow), heap into a pickup truck and go to the guaranteed land.
This is a broken trio, most definitely, and it isn’t much sooner than verbal firecrackers, wolves, and some spooky sightings send Stella insane. She waves to another driver and heads for development. Marcus, roused by cash and his own particular self-importance, isn’t one to surrender, even after he and Lydia later locate the other driver dead, his auto off the street, and Stella missing.
