Demons is a dramatic horror story set in the rural Midwest in the late 1950's. The narrative focuses on Allie, a recently widowed woman struggling to operate a small hog farm with the support of her teenage son, Dayton. Allie's autonomy is repeatedly challenged as she staves off the vulturous opportunism of a corporate land prospector and the debts her husband left behind. In the midst of her difficulties arrives her brother-in-law, Gray, returning to the farm he fled fifteen years earlier. A suspect individual with rumors of mental illness in his past, Gray's attempts to insinuate himself back on the farm are repeatedly thwarted by Allie. Circumstances begin to knot as Gray pursues Dayton who reciprocates with the full passion of his burgeoning sexuality. In desperation, Allie devises a plan to circumvent the desire between Gray and Dayton; an effort as much to maintain control of her son as the land she tenuously possesses.
Demons is a story of three individuals caught in the struggle to survive; fighting for their own autonomy and the often competing strength of sexual desire.
