In house in a wood, Ada and her father live peacefully, tending to their garden and the wildlife in it. They are not human though.
Ada was made by her father from the Ground, a unique patch of earth with birthing and healing properties. Though perhaps he didn’t get her quite right. They spend their days healing the local human folk – named Cures - who visit them, guardedly, with their ailments.
This is the story of what happens when Ada embarks on a relationship with a local Cure named Samson, and is forced to choose between her old life with her father, and a new one with her human lover. Her decision will uproot the town – and the Ground itself – for ever.
