The big, old comforting house in the shadow of Disneyland’s fireworks that Elizabeth, quiet and shy, has lived in her entire life, is no longer comforting after Grandfather dies. In the wake of ongoing paranormal events, she decides to move and leave the hauntings behind.
But they only increase as the drama unfolds around Elizabeth’s love for her baby foster daughter the cherubic Amy, and the marriage she enters into in order to “give Amy a family,” which tailspins into malevolence and abuse. Visitations from Amy’s deceased mother, along with the help of Elizabeth’s remarkable new friend, Peter, come to her aid. But Elizabeth learns that the greatest power she has comes from inside herself.
