doors?

-------- *THE BACKGROUND STORY* ----------------------------------------------

Deacon Oaks is a small and quiet town, where nothing bad ever happens.
Sheriff Alex Truman has a peaceful life dealing with lost dogs, trivial
disputes, and a few drunks here and there. He should be the happiest lawman
in the world. But there's just one small part of him that longs for some
excitement, for something that would break the monotony he doesn't even
realise is eating him alive.
One cold November night it seems his unspoken wishes may have been granted
when he’s involved in a car accident with a man who appears suddenly in the
middle of the road. Alex is fine, but the man ends up in hospital with a
broken leg, and several cracked ribs. Nobody knows who this guy is or where
he has come from, and to make matters worse, he won’t speak. Finally the
town has its first real mystery, and Alex is overjoyed. But that joy is to be
short lived.
With no way of finding out the man’s identity, he’s moved to the local
state mental health facility, and life in Deacon Oaks goes back to normal,
until two months later when Alex gets a call informing him that the “road
guy” has at last spoken. Three words were all he would say – “Cold
Winter Farm, Cold Winter Farm, Cold Winter Farm”, over and over again.
Alex has no idea what it means, but he does know that Cold Winter Farm is on
the edge of town, and that’s good enough. The mystery is back, and Alex
wants to get to the bottom of it right away. Problem is, the biggest storm in
fifty years is heading towards town – he’ll never make it out to the farm
and back before the storm hits. But Alex doesn’t care – something deep
inside is driving him – he has to know who the “road guy” is, and he
has to know now. Abandoning all rational thought and ignoring the warnings of
his deputy, he grabs the keys to the 4x4 and heads out.
Ten minutes after he arrives at the farm, the storm is so out of control,
that it uproots a tree, which falls onto the house, crushing the roof, and
trapping Alex in the basement. That’s not all though. The fallen tree has
opened up a hidden doorway, which leads to a secret corridor. At the end of
the corridor is an elevator, and the only place it can go is down. With no
chance of being rescued until the next day, and with the overpowering need to
find answers drowning out the fear he feels, Alex decides to take the
elevator down.
But what will be waiting for him at the bottom? Will it explain the origins
and identity of the “road guy”? Will it explain why the “road guy”
was walking in the middle of the road, in the middle of the night, in the
middle of the freezing winter? Will it explain why he wouldn’t speak for
two months? And if it does, will the answers be simple, or will they be
ultimately more disturbing and terrifying than anyone could imagine?
