350. Casket Land Part 1

The community of Double Tree was once a vibrant place surrounding a miraculous well in the middle of a parched desert. Ten years ago that well started to dry up and the community’s luck went wit the water. Today Double Tree is a desolate place surrounded for miles by the cursed copses sealed away in black caskets. Four residents are about to be charged with a plan to save the community, but the only thanks they get might be a memorial of the death tree.

CONTENT WARNING
Infant death, scarcity, violence and stigmatization based on physical appearance and disabilities, general  “western” genre themes
