    • Synopsis
    • DAVID PINKER, 33, is a skeptic psychology teacher who wrote a best seller “Psychology of the Supernatural”, that gives psychology explanations to ghosts apparitions. In one of his classes, he meets EMMA HARRISON, 25, who gives him a folder with pictures of her little sister JULIE, who has a lot of bruises. Emma is desperate because her father has a blind belief that the ghost of the family’s caretaker is doing this.
      “Why the caretaker?” Asks David. When Emma’s father was a young, the caretaker hung himself out of sadness, because his wife and daughter had left him.
      David decides to investigate the case, and the story lasts the weekend he is there, at the Harrison’s country house.
      In only three days, David has to face things he doesn’t understand, and for a logical mind he is, that is a challenge he can’t handle: in one hand, Emma’s father is a lovely man, who works as a night watch to provide for his four daughters. In another, all the facts tell he is likely abusing JULIE, his daughter. The conflict develops because at night, the little girls clearly say that there is a man in their property, but David never sees him. This weekend becomes hell to the teacher, who ends up facing his own beliefs and theories, and the more he refuses to destroy them, more he faces a personal nightmare.
