What to expect
Heathcote, England – 1984
A mysterious figure is sneaking into homes through backdoors and open windows. Known locally as ‘the Fox’, he knows everything about everyone – leaving curious objects in their homes, or taking things from them.
When beloved Anna disappears, everyone believes the Fox is responsible.
For the villagers, finding Anna will be difficult – but stopping the Fox from exposing their darkest secrets might just be impossible…
