Dorea Tress likes to run in the dark woods where the forest creatures are not what they seem to be. The night isn't safe, and she is not alone on her familiar trail run. This short traditional fairytale gone wrong captures more than a young woman lost in the woods when on a full moon evening, Dorea stumbles upon something unusual and rediscovers a secret darker than the woods on a starless night, a secret denied for a very long time.
