In scenic Saratoga Springs, ghosts of a dark capitalist past awaken and challenge a young woman’s powers.
Julie Sykes, a young woman with long-repressed supernatural powers, is inexplicably drawn to the enigmatic Damian Quinn, but when a malignant spirit possesses him, she must unlock her powers to save him.
It all begins when Julie and Damian explore an abandoned Victorian house built by a wealthy black farming family during the Gilded Age. Now slated for suburban renewal, the house mysteriously resists demolition.
Little do Julie and Damian know that their actions will awaken vengeful spirits and set off a chain of events with dire consequences. As they fight for survival using a blend of energy work and quantum mechanics, they unwittingly unleash the powers of Henry Hilton, a dead white who came into his fortune by sinister means and scandalized the country in the Gilded Age. Meanwhile, no one will tell Julie how her father died or why she can’t find any pictures of him. Will Julie solve the mystery of father’s death and save Damian before he kills someone? Or will they both be consumed by the relentless forces that haunt them?
