After relentless torment by the youngest of the spirits, Griffin finally confronts the ghost. Only when their unusual connection deepens, does she realize the true threat isn’t inside the house. To expose the deception behind the deaths, the Kidders create unlikely alliances with a deeply traumatized family seeking release of their earth-bound pain.
