Solomon is full of anger - with the teachers and his father who have failed him, with his mother who has left him, and also with himself. He cannot bear to be at school or home. His refuge is one corner of the kirkyard, where nothing flourishes except a single rowan tree. Then workmen uproot the tree and, as it dies, a terrible force comes to life.
Can Solomon find the strength to fight the ancient and evil power which has been unleashed?
