John Martense has just been released from state prison after serving five years for a crime he didn't commit. John wants to stay as far away from the wrong side of the law as he can… but family ties won't let him. John gets a message to see Knaggs (Vincent Schiavelli), an old friend and undertaker with a taste for larceny. Knaggs gives John a map of a cemetery where a corpse stuffed with a half a million dollars has been buried. Johns father stole the money with his psychotic partner Bennett (Jon Finch) but hid the body, leaving it as a family legacy for his son to dig up. John reluctantly heads to Leffertt's Corners, a small town with a terrible secret.
