With the help of a renowned parapsychologist, Dr. Aditya Motwani, Vic has only 36 hours to discover the dark and terrifying truth behind Pia's family history of murderous madness and break the curse that has been put on them by a third mysterious other. Will Vic's love gather the strength to survive the paranormal with Aditya on his side or will they witness the most horrifying truth of their lives.
