To some, the remains of the destitute hospital have become a fetishist shrine to commemorate the victims. To others- occultists in particular - it is an entrance into another world. A grotesque world. It marks thirty years since a devastating fire killed all the patients and a vast majority of the staff at the notorious Pennyville psychiatric hospital. Amongst the patients that perished in the fire was the birth mother of Emily Barker, a young woman struggling to confront her own mental issues who has succumbed to addiction. The recent birth of her daughter has prompted Emily to take a retrospective look into her enigmatic past. Following an investigation into Pennyville, she stumbles upon Pennyville's old care taker: the eerie Jeremy Hobbs. An uneasy alliance will form as Jeremy recounts not only her mother´s own shocking story but that of the other patients as well, every last disturbing and grim detail, but can Jeremy be trusted, will Emily discover the truth and be able to save herself or will malevolent forces break her both physically and psychologically?
