Scully and Mulder investigate the death of a man who seems to have been buried alive. The main suspect is the man's stepson as the two of them had a argument the evening the man dies. The autopsy reveals the dead man had over 12 lbs of dirt in his stomach and it's obvious that he was buried alive. What's not so obvious is how the stepson could have done it. When a second parent is killed, this time after an argument with his daughter, the FBI agents begin to believe there is something far more sinister going on especially after a school counselor tells them both of the children were being abused.
