Hoping to escape the lonely house her mother keeps in Los Angeles, Maggie goes to join her grandfather in the isolated town of Twisted Creek. But from the minute Maggie arrives, her new home is a major adjustment. After navigating the neglected road into the town, Maggie discovers a place where there are very few cars, no cell phone reception, no TV, and none of the other modern comforts of home. Maggie is inadvertently drawn into a battle over the progress that she detests back home an the pitfalls of life in an isolated town.
