On the night of his execution, he wrote a curse letter condemning the people and their families who helped send him to his demise. Shortly after Garrett's death, members of the community start mysteriously dying. One of the jurors takes it upon himself to break the curse when his son is suddenly struck with a life-threatening illness."
