Innertown’s economy was fueled for decades by George Lister’s chemical plant, but now it's closed. Poverty, rare cancers and a plethora of misshapen wildlife now permeate the area. Then, Mark Wilkinson, the first of several boys to disappear, is found hanged in the woods over an odd shrine of boughs, glass and tinsel. The constable decides to cover up the crime and let the youth take care of themselves. This is an out of the ordinary story, almost falling into the genre of horror.
