The One You Follow

Leo wakes up disoriented in a scorched field and is engulfed by a herd of cows. He has a tough choice to make when the herd’s ranger, a mysterious horseman, asks him to kill a wounded calf. Leo's decision- and the events it triggers - will send him on a dark quest for his lost innocence, and bring him face to face with his greatest demon.
