While visiting Skelton Castle, nightly howls lead Mandy and James to discover the loyal tradition of a Deerhound spirit.
Mandy and James's brief stay Skelton Castle finds them nervously exploring its halls, aware that somewhere a dog is in distress. Old documents they find speak of a centuries old tradition involving faithful Deerhounds. Nightly howling leads them to a strange cemetery and a curious and protective couple in a cottage. Does ancient tradition need the support of supernatural elements, or is it wishful thinking? Are the values legitimate, or even possible?
