Little Cinder Soot
17th Century United States-Daniella De Exter had it all. She was an only child to a wealthy man, she never wanted for anything. Until one day, her father married Evil Lucinda Darcey. Lucinda had 2 children of her own, spoiled rotten twins Corinna and Brianna, and all she wanted was for them to leave. But Daniella learned the hard way, you never get what you want. Instead, her father dies on a hunting expedition weeks after marrying Evil Lucinda, leaving her an orphan and alone in Lucinda's care. Lucinda wanting nothing to do with Daniella strips her of not only her wealth, but her pride and integrity, banishing her to the confines of the plantations basements, only allowing her to see the light of day, to wait on her stepsisters. Soon, Daniella wilts away to nothing, not wanting to live that way anymore, she promises herself peace after one deed is finished. During the night, she sneaks up from the basements and kills her step family, but what she doesn't learn until she dies herself, is one of the sisters never really died.
Present Day United States- Every Year, the De Exter Plantation is publicly open on Halloween Night. It is known to be the most haunted location in all of Louisiana. Every Halloween a lottery is drawn in the small town of Exter, the winners win an all night pass to the grounds and the house. Complete lock-down from dusk til dawn. This year 21 Year old Hunter Brigley and his 7 year old sister Hope and 2 others are forced onto the plantation well before the lockdown and its a struggle from the moment the gate closes to stay alive.
Hunter uses his common sense and logic to his advantage, but soon fear of loosing his sister overwhelms him and he soon finds out is just how confusing and distorted reality gets once inside the Plantation walls. He has to risk everything just to save his and his sisters life. And being descended from the very family that the ghost who supposedly haunts the plantation killed, doesnt put the odds in there favor.
