Seven years after her five-year-old son disappeared, a recovering addict is confronted by a seemingly sympathetic man who claims he can bring her son back to her, if she takes part in a dark, archaic ritual.


A group of pre-teens thought the "Mother Tap-Tap" internet challenge was innocent enough, but soon they are visited by horrific visions and echoes of an ancient Indigenous legend that is all too real -- and altogether terrifying.

Jessub has been telling stories ever since he can remember.  He uses his unique voice and varied life experiences in all of the tales he tells.

Jessub creates worlds quickly and efficiently, and adds a strong cinematic and visual element to all of his scripts. He's also a pretty nice guy and fun in a room.

Oh, and he hates writing about himself in the third person.
