An retired couple traveling in a Winnebago stop for the night in the village of Bucksnort, Montana. Soon after pulling over, however, they are attacked and killed by a pack of wild dogs. The Millenium Group sends Frank to investigate, despite his protests that it's just an animal attack. When he arrives, however, the townsfolk behave strangely, particularly their insistence that Frank needs to be in before sundown. At the other extreme is a hyperactive California transplant who complains about a crazy old man living on the outskirts of his property. When Frank gets caught outside after sunset, the dogs make their return, attacking anyone they see except for an old man who appears to control them in some way. Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <>

The Old Man: Well, I can't respect him. My neighbor did nothing to help his, or our, situation but run away. And from crime, of all things. Crime is not evil. Any of us would steal if we were hungry. And any of us might even kill if we were without Hope. So we confront Evil. There isn't much time, and we can't waste time on one ignorant man.
