The group are in the farming community Calla Bryn Sturgis where apparently every decade the Thunderclap Wolves abduct a child from each pair of Calla twins. They take the misfortunate members to the Tower before sending the twin home a mental and physical damaged husk of what they were.

In 1977 New York City thugs from the Drawing of the Three threaten bookstore owner Calvin Tower. They demand he sells to them a vacant lot in midtown Manhattan where the Rose that is this world's manifestation of the Dark Tower lies. The gunslinging quartet with the help of Old Fella must fight evil in two worlds.
