DARK AUGUST — Augusta (Gus) Monet is living an aimless existence with her grifter boyfriend when her great grandmother dies. Ditching her guy, Gus returns home to discover that her inheritance is a dilapidated house and an old dog named Levi. While combing through the house, Gus stumbles upon a trunk filled with childhood belongings. Hidden inside are cold case files that belonged to her mother, a disgraced police detective. Determined to finish her mother’s investigation, her search leads her to a ghost town where Gus inadvertently stirs up the evils of the past, hurtling her towards the terrible truth that culminated on a dark August night, a decade earlier, when lives were lost and secrets were presumed buried forever.
