Moving to Stagcote Manor was meant to be a fresh start for Lindy and her daughter Izzy. A chance at a new life in the Cotswolds after things went so wrong in London. But for Izzy it's a prison sentence.
There's something strange and unnerving about the house and Izzy soon discovers the locals have a lot of bizarre superstitions and beliefs. Many of them related to the manor.
When Izzy begins to investigate, her unease deepens to terror as the house's chilling past finally comes to light.
