Sixteen-year-old Alice Palmer drowns while swimming in the local dam[2]. When her body is recovered and a verdict of accidental death returned, her grieving family buries her. The family then experiences a series of strange and inexplicable events centered around their home[3]. Profoundly unsettled, the Palmers seek the help of psychic and parapsychologist, Ray Kemeny[4].
