"Sit you down there and huddle in... "
Join elderly Iris as she recounts a terrifying tale from her youth. When teenage Iris' mother is killed on the Devil's elbow, her father moves them out to a strange shaped and remote farmhouse - which local legend says was built on a fairy road. Iris chalks this up to being "freety nonsense" - until the phone calls begin. When she's first contacted by some unseen thing, Iris assumes it's her mother attempting to reach her, but the reality is much, much more sinister...
Based on true stories, recounted by Karis' family from Co. Down.
