In the swamps of Florida, the Dark Man has a hold on kids who have been offered at birth to him for milking. What does he get from them? The essence of youth. As the kids get vacant, the men in town keep their youth. Kelly Armstrong, who has come back to live with her grandfather, meets Michael, her grandfathers's lawyer's son. As they get to know each other, they discover their pasts have a lot in common. Both adopted, both have a natural sense of getting around in the swamp, both unable to connect with kids their own age, both see visions of old men when they look into the mirror. Michael and Kelly work to figure out who is in charge and how to get him out of control.
