As the endless cycle of violence between the Hatfields and McCoys rages on, a youthful tragedy conjures the dreaded demon of vengeance to rise up and claim the lives of those who caused the death of a young innocent. Ever since the McCoys ran over Abner Hatfield with their motorcar and reneged and their promise to give the Hatfields the vehicle as a gesture of goodwill, the two backwoods families have been locked in an ongoing battle. But while the adults in each family are consumed by hatred, all young Jodie Hatfield and Ricky McCoy want is to love one another. Knowing that their families will disapprove of their union, the two young lovebirds furtively rendezvous in the woods as Ricky's little sister, Sarah, stands lookout. One night, as the two declare their love by the light of the moon, two of the Hatfield brothers spy Sarah in the woods and quickly give chase. When Sarah makes a fatal misstep and dies, Ricky visits the old woman in the woods and summons the one hell-spawn that can settle the score. But vengeance is a dangerous game, and before long both families are running for their lives.
