The true story of a restless spirit shot on location in rural Cornwall, England, the film is based on the true story of The Reverend Frederick Densham. Influenced by Indian culture, and in particular the work of Gandhi, Densham tries to spread the word to a prejudiced, uneducated and fiercely traditional community. The result is a clash of understanding, which leads to a bizarre and tragic series of events and ultimately years of total ostracism of Densham from the community. In 1953, Densham dies alone, a tortured soul. Even after death he is denied his way and is refused his wish to be buried in the churchyard. This is the ultimate spurn. The tables are turned. A man misunderstood in life, becomes a haunting presence in the churchyard, casting a dark shadow over the community, which exists to this very day. By intertwining the thread of his living days in the community, with the suspense of his after life, and its impact on the new owners of the Rectory, the film creates genuine suspense in what is a thought-provoking and dramatic true story.
