On her journey, she crosses paths with the notorius Dutch Wilder Gang, a group of outlaws struck with gold fever. In desperation Dowanhowee steals a horse from the men and races to an area known as the Black Wood Forest. The men are soon hot on her trail and capture her. After interrogating her the men find value in her and make her help them find a hidden gold vein that runs through the area. Soon Dowanhowee and the Gang discover they have unknowingly awaken an ancient creature that lurks within this dark forest. They must now band together and fight to survive against this creature with an unending hunger, known in ancient legends as the Wendigo.“
