Three Wells: a remote English village, steeped in traditions passed down for countless generations. The return of a man, John Stone, taken from there as a child sets in motion a battle between Paganism and Christianity. He is the last of the true Druids, the priests of the old religion, on a mission to raise a long forgotten god, Lugh, from a hidden well beneath the village.
John's guilt ridden brother, Alan, has become the village Vicar.
Their childhood friend Bob Farmer has become an internationally renown academic, whilst his sister Jane has stayed in Three Wells to become the village school mistress.
The return of John and Bob sets in motion the chain of events foreseen in prophecies of the druid Merlin, culminating at the annual Well Dressing, a traditional ceremony dedicated to thanking God for deliverance from the plague. This final Well Dressing will see John pitting the villagers of Three Wells against the newcomers who have come there to live... and die.
