It's been a strange and unusual week in the normally peaceful mountain town of Palisades, West Virginia. One lucky coal miner wins a million dollar lotto. However, on the same night, one unlucky miner is found dying in the town's dump, a bullet in his head. Then scantly two days later, another murder.
