When forensic artist Andrea Bellamy receives a 1-year, all expenses paid grant from Wisdom Court, she jumps at the chance to pursue her delayed dream to become a painter. The only catch: she must move to Wisdom Court.
Upon arrival at the century-old Colorado mansion, Andrea learns that Caldicott Wyntham, Wisdom Court's founder, has died. The housekeeper, Aura Lee Witherspoon, is demanding a seance to contact Caldicott while the court's other associates try to explain away "strange happenings."
Andrea turns to her easel, intent on fulfilling her grant, only to discover she keeps painting the same unknown face, contorted in fear she can't explain.
Now Andrea faces a terrifying choice: believe her trance-painting is evidence of a mental illness, or side with Aura Lee and agree that Wisdom Court is haunted by an evil set in motion a century before.
