The Shire, a dwelling in J.R.R. Tolkien’s fictional world of Middle-earth is the perfect place for a young woman like Amanda Marcella, who desires the simple life. She marries Richard, a hometown boy who just returned from Vietnam, and they move to a small town in Georgia. Sheltered within her marriage, she tries to escape the pressures of society. However, the outside world has a way of creeping in, and after 9-11, things go badly for Amanda.

Amanda struggles to keep her family together, but when she finds a secret marijuana room hidden in the back of the garage, she has no choice but to leave. After losing everything, she moves to Florida, and begins to rebuild her life. With a new job and apartment, she can’t shake the feeling that someone is watching. One day, Amanda wakes up from a drug-induced state, and finds herself held captive in a small secret room. The last thing she remembers is going to her car in the underground parking lot at work. Who has taken her and what are they going to do? Will someone will find her before it is too late?
