For the newest season of their Canadian true-crime podcast, couple Jo and Farid delve into the gruesome 1980s slaughter of a family of five. Farid travels to the destitute town of Briddus, Newfoundland to put the pieces of the mystery together through witness interviews and covert investigation. Jo, the foley artist, isolates in her recently deceased mother's country home to ready it for sale all while creating the chilling sounds to accompany Farid's words. Jo struggles to stay removed from her schizophrenic mother's suicide, but after picking up disturbing sounds inside the house, she goes down a twisted path towards a dark family secret that ruthlessly haunts her.
Farid comes up against the crooked cops and hardened townspeople of Briddus. The murders and their rumoured ties to satanism irreparably damaged the town's tourism thirty years ago, leaving them desperate to keep the past buried. As he gets closer to discovering what really happened that fateful summer, Farid finds himself, and Jo, in serious danger. Putting Jo first, he makes the choice to give up and let down the surviving Chaffey kin.
Months later, Jo and Farid escape to a remote island intent on mending their strained relationship but struggle to let go of their respective ghosts. Jo befriends an enigmatic neighbour who guides her further from Farid and deeper into the mystery of her mother’s legacy. Unbeknownst to Jo, Farid seeks out a local pastor - revealing that, despite the risk, he’s never given up on delivering justice to the Chaffeys.
