Hallow’s Lake is a 40 mile wide lake located deep in the woods of a rural county in Southern Illinois.  Because of its seclusion, it doesn’t receive many visitors. One afternoon, against their parents’ wishes; a group of 10-year-old kids decide to sneak off on their bicycles. They travel across one county and spend the afternoon swimming at Hallow’s Lake.  In the midst of all the swimming excitement ,their fun quickly turns into a blood tragedy when something attacks them from under the water. The brutal attack only leaves three to tell the tale.
Twelve years later, the carnage at Hallow’s Lake resurfaces leaving the local authorities baffled on its origin and happening. No one knows what’s in the water.  Only three people can help, the three children, now adults, who survived.
            Adam is now a working artist in New York City; Avery remains a patient at a local psychiatric hospital because she never recovered from the events on that day, and Christian is a lost soul who is in trouble with the law because of his troubled past.
            Together only these three survivors hold the key as to what is lurking below the surface in Hallow’s Lake and they are brought back to the lake to help find what evil lies beneath.  To end, once and for all what lives… Down below.
