Abstract

When three young siblings go exploring in a cave near their small town of Hope Falls they discover a mysterious creature- half­bat, half-boy. The creature attacks. The sheriff, for lack of a better option, takes the creature to Dr Parker’s, hoping the veterinarian will know what to do. Meanwhile, the townsfolk are baying for blood­bat-boy blood.
As Meredith Parker and her daughter Shelley teach Edgar how to behave like a normal boy. the townsfolk begin to connect the appearance of the creature to the deaths of their cows. An uneasy truce is made but when the bat-boy Edgar tries to fit in with the narrow-minded townsfolk. they turn on him. He and Shelley. who have fallen in love run away to the forest to escape the townsfolk.
However, a terrible secret soon ruins their happiness and it is not long before the whole town knows the past of the mysterious Bat Boy.
