her five-year-old son is drowned Rachel Carlson (Demi Moore) moves to a
secluded cottage on the Scottish coast and tries to resume her writing,
but soon begins to believe the ghost of her dead son has followed
her. One local woman, who apparently sees dead people,
certainly seems to have an insight into this, but be warned, things are
not always as they seem in this movie and there are plenty of twists in

Possibly the strage collection of dolls the local seer of dead
people has accumulated in her home.
