    • Synopsis
    • Francesca and Pedro are the parents of a new baby, one that they hope will mend their tense relationship. But a tragedy from Francesca’s past continues to weigh upon her and test her fragile emotional state of mind. The couple seeks peace and quiet, and moves to a remote country house for solitude and calm.
      But they have made the wrong choice…a very wrong choice. From the first night they move into the house, Francesca feels something is not right. There are sounds, fleeting footsteps, echoed cries, perhaps even apparitions…occurrences witnessed only by her. Pedro loves his wife, and wants only what is best for her, what will bring back the Francesca he knew years ago, but her increasing fears and paranoia concern him. The professionals they visit tell them that everything is in her mind, perhaps symptoms of post-partum depression, and that she simply needs to relax and ignore what is obviously not real.
      But the house hides horrible secrets from a period long ago, when something so terrible that it can hardly be imagined left its imprint upon the dwelling. Incapable of understanding what is going on, nor to convince anyone else that it is real, for the sake of her baby, and her sanity, Francesca must communicate with whoever, or whatever, it is that is haunting her, and pray that they mean her no harm!
