“Stand still. The trees ahead and bush beside you are not lost.” ~ Albert Einstein

Jack while running away from home gets lost going down a river.   He is stuck in a swamp and follows a mysterious trail of candlelight to a shaman.  The shaman reveals that Jack is being stalked and hunted by a witch who collects power by stealing souls.  The shaman offers his help and guidance, but Jack is wary of the offer.
