1882. A mysterious monster lurks Lake Ontario, yanking swimmers from the sand without a trace. Thirty-nine people have drowned so far this very summer. An intrepid reporter, a hapless sailor, and an unsuspecting brothel owner are about to come face-to-face with the culprit, and it’s worse than anyone’s ever imagined. A true gothic horror story inspired, (and thoroughly exaggerated), by documented sightings of Toronto’s very own sea serpent.
