Betsy, a young haunted school teacher, is running from her past. She accepts the generous offer from Mr. Theroux, agreeing to home-school his children while living with them in their idyllic family plantation.
Betsy quickly embraces the children and earns their trust but questions their strange, distant behavior. Soon she uncovers a dark family secret and suspects that Mr. Theroux may have harmed his own children.
Betsy must navigate through Voodoo mythology, ritual curses, and other security measures put in place by Mr. Theroux to prevent his kids from leaving the isolated plantation. To rescue the children, she must risk her life in order to escape the supernatural evil that surrounds them all.
