At first, the Covid crisis brings the residents of Brampton together. But the surge of community spirit crumbles amid petty envies and squabbles, hostility between neighbours and growing divisions within the village. As suppressed emotions and past secrets rise to the surface, simmering tensions escalate into previously unthinkable acts.
