COZ...the old woman who controls the place where life and death meet...

On a wild, stormy night in the remotest region of Only Mountain, the wife of the reclusive astonomer Mick Grady is having her thirteenth child. A young midwife and her doctor friend, called to assist in the difficult birth, find themselves in the middle of a bizarre family fight. They overhear rumors about an old woman, living further up the mountain, who is said to make time move backwards, resurrect the dead and suck the living back to the wom. The midwife's disbelief sets the stage for the wondrous events that unfold that night.
