SummaryIn 1648 A.D. England, a small group of deserters flee from a raging battle through an overgrown field. They are captured by two men, O'Neil and Cutler. O'Neil, an alchemist, forces the group to aid him in his search to find a hidden treasure that he believes is buried in the field. Crossing a vast mushroom circle, which provides their first meal, the group quickly descends into a chaos of arguments, fight and paranoia. It soon becomes clear that the treasure might be something other than gold as they slowly fall victim to the terrifying energies trapped inside the field.
