    The building of a cross-border by-pass is held up when a Nigerian ground worker discovers ancient remains in the path of the bulldozers. The disturbing of the bones appears to trigger a series of strange events in the nearby area. Ancient myths of Eastern Europe, Africa and Ireland collide in a small rural town. Old tensions are replaced by new ones.
