Synopsis: Tom Wallace is born from communal coupling in a remote mountain location during the Great Depression of the 1930s. He endures physical and sexual abuse at the hands of a sadistic cult and bonds with Calvin, Luke and Ben, staunch allies in defense of each other's safety and sanity until they finally manage to escape and scatter. As an adult, Tom experiences time lapses, sometimes lasting for hours, with no memory of what he may have done. He searches for the friends of his youth to see if they experience similar traumas. His search takes him to a psychiatric hospital for the criminally insane, the rock- hewn coast of Maine and eventually a tranquil seaside community, where he reunites with his college sweetheart, Becky Carlton, the town's first female police officer. A grisly series of murders seem to follow Tom and, due to his lost time intervals, he's tormented not knowing if he could be the killer. The police are hot on the trail of the murderer and when Becky's little daughter disappears, events rapidly escalate.
