Have you heard that everything that glitters isn’t gold?
Travel through time from the middle ages to our modern day with five short stories about a magically cursed ring. Valinora is an uneducated woman trying to survive. When she finds the ring outside, her luck turns around. Now she must beware of witch burnings. Dutch and John are outlaws looking for a better life. They find it out on the prairie when they see a glow at night. Like everything else, it will come at a cost. When they attempt to destroy the ring it only continues.
Three more stories follow about the ring and its destruction. Liam is a 19th-century aspiring writer from Paris. When he stays with his friends in an abandoned mansion he finds the beautiful ring. But allowing the ring to take over his life is not a good idea. Jimmy is a troubled teenager and when his grandpa comes home with the ring nobody knows why. It seems to be just a gift from grandpa, and poor Jimmy just keeps getting into trouble.
Jessie lives with his dog teacup. Upon finding the ring in an alley he becomes generous. But the night his pup teacup runs away he is left with a mysterious extra ring. This one run-down is not as beautiful as the first. Could you escape the ring?
