Episode 1

Two women take refuge in a remote Scottish country house where a demon awaits them. Stars Claire Knight and Suzanne Donaldson.

On the run from a women's prison in the Scottish Highlands, Kate and Colleen are given refuge in a vast country mansion by a charming but rather enigmatic host, Adam Strachan.

It could be a decision they come to regret...

The storyline for Marty Ross's supernatural five-part thriller is based around the notion, found in old Scottish folk tales, of the Beatha Greimach - literally 'The Breath
Thief' - a celtic demon said to lure victims into a kiss which would drain the soul from their bodies.
