Russell Marsh, a young, Seattle history professor is called on by his sister to their mother's funeral. Back in his hometown, he has to deal with his past and who he has become, facing his boyhood best friend Mike and his father, the charismatic leader of a New Age cult.
Slowly we, and Russ, are aware of odd things happening within this town. A man on his deathbed knew that Russ would return; his boat house is covered with detailed, yet insane writing; a dream of a stone cudgel results in Russ awakening to find it in his hand -- and soon the town drunk warns it is an instrument of sacrifice; a young liquor store clerk enlists him to help find her brother, whom she believes has been taken by an ancient cult.
In trying to make sense of what is happening, Russ rekindles his childhood romance with his friend Mike and accidentally engages the attentions of sexy seductress Susan (Tori Spelling) in order to get information on the artifact.
As his blinders are slowly stripped away, letting him see the true reality hidden from most, Russ discovers an ancient and sinister evil hidden in this town, and he discovers both his family's, and his own, role in an upcoming apocalypse. Soon he finds himself framed for a boy's murder and is arrested for on the eve of an important night. Soon Russ must decide in what he believes, destiny or his own mind.
