Sarah has suffered tortured memories since her mother was shot in front of her, aged 7. She knows the bullet was meant for herself. Returning to her grandmother's house on college break, she is reminded of the girl she saw hidden by a brick in the wall of the cellar fourteen years ago. Her grandmother told her it was a witch, hidden in the wall. The ghost of the Minister of Clergy wanders the grounds in a blood-soaked cloak, a relic of the witch hysteria of 1692. But Sarah feels that something about the girl trapped behind the wall holds the key to her own release.
