A modern horror creature feature, THE LITTLE PEOPLE shows us just how far we will go to protect those we love.

Londoners Maya and Jamie are looking for a way out of their urban nightmare to raise their unborn child, so when they inherit a house in rural Ireland, they jump at the chance to flee from the dangers of city living.

Yet, this new home holds primeval secrets — at the bottom of their garden is an ancient gnarled wood, where a supernatural presence lurks. The woods hide malevolent, murderous goblins known as 'Redcaps' named so for soaking their caps in the blood of their victims.

Engaging a local family company to do some building repairs, the young couple quickly realise they got more than they bargained for with 'Daddy' Whelan and his adult children who have been raised to believe that violence is the solution to most problems. Recognising their newfound safety is under threat, Maya finds herself turning to the woods - and the bloodthirsty creatures within it - to ensure the safety of her unborn child.
