Shreve, a dead-end town next to the UK's largest landfill.
There's nothing the bored residents won't stoop to in an attempt to spice up their pedestrian lives.
All wannabe model Aggie Smithfield wants is to escape before Shreve swallows her ambition along with a million tons of rubbish and dirty little secrets.
Desperate, Aggie asks renowned but reclusive ex-photographer, Mason Brand, for help.
The deal they make might be the only thing that can save her when the town's fate catches up with it.
Beneath everyone's feet, something born of the things we throw away is awakening. And when the past is reborn, there will be no escape.
