I'm used to seeing berry clusters that are much tighter, instead of the spread out berrys in your photo. the leaf does look similar. Not too sure about this one... however am leaning away from that it is 'sang.

BTW, welcome to the forum!

Herbeapuce:

That is red baneberry. Closely related to black cohosh. A very far north growing plant.

I was going to say the berry cluster configuration reminds me of the Doll's Eye plants in my area (white baneberry). So that explains a lot, thanks Jim.
