Beautiful Kaitlin has recently married oil expert Paul Maverick and left her thriving life in Toronto in order to accompany him in his professional post amongst a scenic yet slower-paced life in Stavanger, Norway. As newlywed bliss subsides faster than expected, she is left with little to do at home but wait for husband to come home and feels she almost dreams into life the excitement she finds running into handsome Finn and his peculiar group of friends who work and live in the Scandinavian woods.

The thrill of keeping what she feels is an innocent secret of childish playtime –exploring nature and talking philosophy with these new people in her life– soon turns into something more wicked, as Kaitlin discovers sinister intentions behind their friendly façade, and even otherworldliness, as she ponders whether or not they're even human.

Who are these 'forest beings' that entice so much yet reveal so little? Was it coincidence that brought them into her life or did they seek her out? And why? What will happen when those closest to her find out about her lies to meet with them in secret? More importantly, what will Kaitlin learn about her own true character?
