It wasn't his fault but there is no way his parents will ever believe him.  It was an accident but now his sister is in a coma and he has been banished to his late grandmother's house in a small Welsh village.  Zed desperately wants to see his sister but can he walk all that way through the snow?  One night, Zed vows to exchange his life for his sister's.  The Welsh locals have told him of the mythological figure of the Red Judge and Zed begins to believe that he has somehow summoned up the Red Judge and that he is out to get him.  Could this really be happening?  Or is something else going on with Zed?
