SYNOPSIS

Having recently weathered the loss of his 12 year-old daughter Evie, psychologist Peter Bower and his wife Carol relocate back to Melbourne – where they first met – to start afresh.

Old friend and mentor, Dr Duncan Steward organizes patient referrals from a psychiatric clinic for Peter to help restore some semblance of normality to his life, however things are far from normal.

Troubled by the peculiarities of his patients, Peter delves into their history and discovers to his astonishment that every one of them died within hours of each other on July 12th 1987.

Realizing he is being haunted by his own past, Peter returns to his hometown to finally face a secret he has kept for 23 years.

We discover that as a teenage boy he was responsible for the derailment of a train, causing the death of 47 passengers.

It soon becomes apparent that Peter’s ghostly patients are holding the soul of his daughter hostage.

Peter then confronts his strained relationship with his father William and his childhood friend Barry (who was with him on the night of the accident), and decides to confess his secret to local police officer Barbara Henning – whose mother was killed in the derailment – at the local police station.

 Henning probes deeper into the mystery, while the ghosts impel Peter to look deeper into his fractured memory of that fateful night.

Peter returns to the scene of the accident where the truth about the tragedy is revealed through a series of flashbacks.

After a tension filled climax, the ghosts are finally laid to rest, as is the soul of Peter’s daughter.
