Deep in the heart of the Louisiana bayou of Bywater is a sacred grove to the Seminole Native Americans. They call it the Dark Waters which is protected by a Guardian; a creature of nature, a Man-Thing. But the Dark Waters are under threat by Frederic Schist who seeks to exploit the oil reserves of the Bywater.

Newcomer Sheriff Kyle Williams believes a more human element and scientific explanation to what happened to his predecessor and other agents of Schist's. But increasingly strange events and murders force him to reconsider the legend ... of the Man-Thing.
