When a sinister call comes in about the whereabouts of a body, Detective Inspector Trevor Joseph and his team investigate. Their search leads them to Hill House, an eerie abandoned children’s home which closed down over twenty years earlier. The institution is reputed to be haunted and Joseph and his colleagues feel a presence there – but is it human or are they dealing with the realms of the supernatural?
As the search goes on, things that are all too human are discovered – supplies and evidence of someone having been in the vicinity. But the worst discovery is that of several bodies in a water tank… Are the rumours of systematic child abuse true – and is someone trying to get even?
