Before Nightfall follows Grace, a young girl who is determined to find the whereabouts of her missing friend Thomas. However, her village is tormented by a mysterious shape shifting creature who comes at night to devour the townsfolk. A curfew has been put in place to make sure the villagers are not the monster in disguise - if you fail to get back before sundown no one will open their doors to you. On top of this, Grace's parents are becoming increasingly worried about Grace going off alone into the forest with her trusty dog. Can Grace find Thomas and make it back before the curfew and can anyone be trusted in the village of Godwick?
