In a small town on the island of Newfoundland, Vanessa, her mother, Jane, and her step-father, Daryl, reside. It is Christmas and Jane wants to say goodbye to her ex husband before he moves to the Canadian mainland. Daryl isn’t fond of this idea, due to her ex’s troubled past. After Jane leaves to see her ex, Vanessa wants to go out and get some birch wood for the fireplace. Daryl tells her that she can only go out if she brings a compass, and if the compass acts odd, to come back right away. Daryl tells her to be weary of fairies in the woods. Daryl then passes out, and wakes up in a different place in the house. He then hears a knock on the door, so he goes and checks, only to see his Jane, bloody, running toward the house.
