Phoebe is not entirely satisfied with her life or the world in which she lives. Her house is over what was once a sacred ground for Native Americans in Maine.
John Constantine knows something supernatural is happening there, and he sends Swamp Thing to deal with it. Phoebe has bigger problems than the average woman, and Swamp Thing would like to help her, but is it within his power?
