When Jessica and Sophie were kids, they witnessed the killing of their parents. 20 years later, Jessica has a fatal accident and Sophie wavers between grief over losing her sister and the hope that she will now be able to lead a normal life after having been subjected to Jessica’s morbid paranoia. But she keeps having blackouts and gradually realizes that another person is controlling her spirit and life. Sophie fights back against this other person residing in her body, but will she succeed?
