Helping friends through trying times can be draining-especially when that hardship is a life-threatening illness. Confronting the reality of death is jarring but when an unearthly evil seeks to extinguish a precarious life, it's all the more terrifying.
Morgan Knudsen needs a place to call home after her parents divorce and leave town. Her friend from work, Bob, also needs an apartment following his divorce. Soon after they move into a flat in downtown Edmonton, they discover a spirit presence. But, while it manifests to Morgan as an ominous shadow, it presents itself to Bob as a lonely spirit boy. Bob, who misses his children and feels depressed after being diagnosed with cancer, befriends the ghost. Morgan, however, knows that this is no innocent spirit-and she fears that Bob is putting himself in danger by communicating with it.
When the ghost aggressively attacks Morgan, she calls in a demonologist who reveals that the entity is trying to drive her out so that it can possess Bob.
