For Chantal, a psychologist, psychic phenomena is an everyday reality and part of her life. When Chantal is asked to follow Annabella’s case, she is appalled by what she discovers. It is only through the spirit of the missing girl that more is revealed which included child exploitation and child pornography. Chantal finds herself entangled in a web and could only be freed by the missing girl’s spirit.
