    Growing up in the shadows cast by two world wars, Annabelle has lived a mostly quiet, steady life in her rural Pennsylvania town. Until the day Betty Glengarry moves to town. Betty quickly reveals herself to be cruel and manipulative, and while her bullying at first seems isolated, things quickly spin out of control, escalating until Betty mysteriously disappears. As the town searches for Betty and days pass, fingers begin to point toward Toby, a World War I veteran who carries deep and secret scars. While others see his strangeness, Annabelle sees only kindness, and soon must find the courage to stand as a lone voice of justice as tensions mount.
