Terrifying nightmares, the stirring of memories long forgotten, and eerie happenings at the house, suggest her imagination is getting the better of her, until confronted by an intruder and things spiral out of control.
A missing policeman, a suspicious psychiatrist, and an old adversary add to her escalating tension. When she wakes up covered in blood next to the body of a masked man, Elaine must fight for her sanity, facing demons both past and present.
Unless it’s too late.
