What rests beneath the ground is not always asleep…
Mike Cooper has spent his life fruitlessly searching for gold in the great American West. Looking to finally make his fortune, he decides to risk everything and pack up his crew of fellow miners to head for the heart of gold-rich Ghana West Africa, where an opportunity arises that’s too good to ignore.
Leased a plot of land, Mike and his crew feel they’re on the cusp of success. Overrun by greed, they ignore all of the warning signs that something is dangerously wrong with the land they’re mining. And soon they discover that the time-worn ground holds secrets that are best left buried.
For nothing is as it seems in this forgotten world.
Terror lurks in the hearts of men who quickly learn that the stuff of nightmares is all too real and what starts as a new beginning, rapidly becomes a frightening ordeal of horror and bloodshed.
They signed the contract. They staked their claim. And now time is running out for them.
They wanted to find gold, but now they only want to keep their souls.
But the demon is awake, and he’s hungry…
