This is bad enough given that according to witnesses she was the last person seen with Jessica but there is worse.

There have been strange things and happenings at her home and she starts to believe there is a connection between the missing Jessica and the darkness she is experiencing in the present.

She finds herself in a race against time trying to prove her innocence and keep herself safe from people who desperately want to take her down.
