Arcade employee Luke Wilkins wants to drive to Blackstar Canyon to bury a large sum of money found in the trash bin. Arcade owner Grant Benjamin had a near death experience in Blackstar Canyon five years ago. Grant warns Luke of the rumors and real dangers of the abandoned mining town. Grant follows the trail of the bank robber to Laguna Beach and pieces together several connections to the one-eyed rancher who almost shot him in the face with a Mossberg. Luke drags his friends and younger brother into the haunted valley and they stumble onto the secret the remaining citizens have been hiding in the center of the mine shafts for over a hundred years.
