A horror story set in 1844 California. An Irish family is about to lose their
Malibu ranch for failure to repay loans. A girl who doesn’t want to marry the
rich man chosen for her by her uncle flees from Mexico aboard the schooner owned
by the son of the woman with the Malibu ranch. They seek out an old Indian to
guide them through the desert to a place where the deceased father of the family
had obtained gold twice before. The place is haunted by ancient Indians and is
some sort of a portal through time.
