An Evolving Mystery :
Act 1: Sarah witnesses, contributes, and shares in the stories dating back to the 1830's of generations of occupants of her new home and its nearby twin, the house of her neighbor, Conrad Thompson, whose grandmother Angela is the one reaching out to her from beyond.
Act 2: As Sarah’s life darkens under the weight of her own untold secrets, so too do the stories she witnesses. The tales, which at first appeared separate from one another, ultimately uncover their terrible secrets of incest, jealousy, suicide, and murder, and, at long last, disclose their common thread—the lineage of the occupants of the twin houses.
Act 3: The prospect of a blissful future lies ahead if the ancestors can, at long last, rest in peace.
