Summary
A troubled family moves into an old farmhouse where a triple homicide has occured. Only Ben, the little toddler of the family, can see the supernatural presences in the house, and he appears more delighted with them than afraid. When his teenage sister, Jess, also starts encountering unusual occurences - this time of an apparantly non-benevolent nature - she also begins noticing Ben's unusual behavior as well and realizes that he too is experiencing something out of the ordinary. The hardest part for Jess is getting anybody else to take her seriously
