A young man named Jacob begins renting a room in a derelict mansion on the side of town. The longer he stays there, the more things seem off.  What is the manor's master hiding? What really happened to his family oh-so-many years ago? Who is the mysterious girl trapped in the library? And can Jacob find the horrible truth before it's too late?
