The year is 1921 and Florence Cathcart (Rebecca Hall) is a paranormal investigator, who often assists the police in debunking so-called hauntings and other seemingly unexplainable hoaxes.  Robert Malory (Dominic West of The Wire notoriety) is the headmaster of a rural boys' school, who invites Cathcart to investigate a series of ghost sightings at the institution.

Florence hesitantly agrees to visit, expecting an ingenious young boy to be responsible for the pranks.  What she actually witnesses tests her absolute skepticism and unwavering belief in the scientific approach, while simultaneously reacquainting her with a repressed childhood trauma.
