It is the 1940's, and World War II is raging. Pietro and Lucia live on an isolated farm with Alice, Lucia's younger sister.
One day, while drawing water from the well, Pietro and Alice produce a casual and apparently insignificant incident, which frees something from Earth's womb.
A strange and alien colour flashes underwater, at the well's bottom, then disappears. From that moment on, inexplicable events start happening all around the farm, and by night the surrounding vegetation glitters with a sinister glow.
The colour soon takes hold of the whole farm, and dwelling inside Pietro and his family's minds, it brings them into its sick world of pain, blood and death...
