A college grad, while on the job, accidentally opens a portal and falls into a world only referred to as, The Shadow World. The man gathers a group of other people who have fallen into this world. They pull together to make a community with rules and regulations that keep them together and to an extent, safe. Even with that they are still hunted and mentally tortured by the demons of the world. Not to mention they take care of three creatures being hunted and a small shadow girl who won't seem to go away.
