A Carpathian hunting lodge, built in 1810 by gypsy prisoners who were slaughtered and ground into mortar for the granite blocks, is gifted by Austro-Hungary emperor Francis Joseph to Czar Alexander II as a personal Dacha.
In 1851, the Czar directs Count Nicholai Draja DeLensky, a cossack nobleman, to relocate the Dacha in the Caucasus. The ancestral pagan mysticism of the gypsy victims persists - strange occult phenomena and grisly death overtake the Count and follow the Dacha.
In 1953, Ivan DeLensky, a descendant of the Count, relocates the Dacha to a ten acre site in Flintridge, California. Ivan passes away in 1981 and wills the Dacha to his adopted son, Victor DeLensky - the phenomena persists.
Victor and those who surround him are forced into a battle with demonic creatures - a confrontation where there are no rules and the losers are swept to the ghastly abode of the Demons; a stygian world of darkness.
