Documentary. Set in the final decade of the nineteenth century, the film is constructed entirely from stories published in the local newspaper of Black River Falls, an apparently respectable and prosperous community in northern Wisconsin. However, news during the 1890's is dominated by bizarre tales of madness, suicide and murder.
