Having recently weathered the loss of his 12 year-old daughter Evie, psychologist Peter
Bower and his wife Carol relocate back to Melbourne – where they first met – to start afresh.
Old friend and mentor, Dr Duncan Steward organises patient referrals from a psychiatric clinic
for Peter to help restore some semblance of normality to his life, however things are far from
normal. Troubled by the peculiarities of his patients, Peter delves into their history and
discovers to his astonishment that every one of them died within hours of each other on July
Realising he is being haunted by his past, Peter returns to his hometown to finally face a
secret he has kept for 23 years. We discover that as a teenage boy he was responsible for
the derailment of a train, causing the death of 47 passengers. It soon becomes apparent that
Peter’s ghostly patients are holding the soul of his daughter hostage.
Peter then confronts his strained relationship with his father William and his childhood friend
Barry (who was with him on the night of the accident), and decides to confess his secret to
local police officer Barbara Henning – whose mother was killed in the derailment – at the local
police station. Henning looks deeper into the case while the ghosts impel Peter to look
deeper into his fractured memory of that fateful night.
Peter returns to the scene of the accident where the truth about that fateful night is revealed
through a series of flashbacks. After a tension filled climax, the ghosts are finally laid to rest,
as is the soul of Peter’s daughter
