Overview

It's 1592, England, Mabel Wakefield lives in
domestic bliss with her beloved husband John and newborn
son Thomas in the remote village of Alderwood, nestled
deep within a foreboding forest. But when a simple whisper
brands Mabel as a witch, their joyous world shatters in an
instant.
Despite a desperate attempt to silence rumours,
more damage is done—Mabel's secret ancestral ties to
witchcraft have been exposed to the entire village.
Condemned by her community, Mabel finds even her
devoted John cannot protect her or their baby from the
crazed town.
Soon she is utterly alone, her husband sentenced to
public execution and her infant son ripped from her arms.
As she races desperately through the village searching for
Thomas, she witnesses the merciless Constable Harrow
himself orchestrating her beloved John's gruesome
sacrificial stoning.
Overwhelmed with anguish, she vows to reclaim
Thomas, seeing his tiny form suspended in a cage over
John upon the execution stage. For she knows the obsessed
Harrow will never cease hunting her, the damned daughter
of a witch, whose very existence threatens his iron rule. Her
only hope is to somehow flee Alderwood forever. But first
she must save Thomas, though the entire village now stands
against her.
When Mabel is captured and condemned to rot in
the dungeon below Alderwood, Harrow's sadistic torment
begins. She can hear Thomas's distant cries echoing day
and night somewhere within the underground maze. His
wavering wails fracture her sanity.
To reclaim her stolen child, she must achieve the
impossible and escape the inescapable dungeon maze,
outwit Harrow's mind games, and embrace the shadowed
Alderwood Forest where unspeakable horrors lurk amidst
the ancient oaks.
Can Mabel save Thomas from the dungeon before
his haunting cries shatter her mind? Or will rescuing her
son come at the ultimate price in the forest?
