Seventeen-year-old high-school student Sarah Wagner wrestles with her grief over losing her older brother, John, to cancer. When John’s ghost begins haunting her room at night, Sarah seeks help from Michael—the dark and mysterious boy in her class—and her friend Donna, an angry girl on the fringe of society.

Searching desperately for a way to lay her brother’s spirit to rest, Sarah’s journey takes her into the mystical realm of the occult, and as her world slowly becomes unhinged, we see that all is not as it appears.
