Martin Cole, a lonely 10 year old boy becomes enamored with his neighbor, Lisa. One evening, Martin witnesses her brutal murder and his life changes forever.

Decades later, Martin is engaged to Lisa’s daughter. But as the wedding draws closer, something is taking control of his mind and body. Either in the grip of a demonic possession, or descending into madness, Martin is convinced that the invading spirit is Lisa herself, opening old painful wounds for her family and rekindling his first love.
