It is Rebecca Jane's birthday, the first since her mum died. Dad eagerly gives her a present, but when Rebecca opens it she unwittingly steps into a living nightmare. The Victorian sampler she has received unlocks a chilling spectre. What does she have to do to escape this restless ghostly presence and its haunting power?
