In this one-of-a-kind reverse haunted house ghost story that is a mix of The Others, The Lovely Bones and Groundhog Day, 15-year-old Lisa and her family died in 1986 just one day shy of her birthday under sinister circumstances . However, for nearly 30 years they have continued to live that same miserable day over and over again, never realizing they are dead already. It is not until Lisa "wakes up" and begins to notice things that make her finally come to the distressing realization of her and her loved ones’ deaths.

Connecting with Olivia, the daughter of a future family, who now lives in the very same house, Lisa unravels the mystery of behind her and other victims’ deaths in the house. She discovers that the house once belonged to a serial killer who kidnapped teenage girls and burned their remains in a hidden furnace room. When he died, he became a Haunter - a powerful, evil spirit able to possess the living. To save Olivia and her family from becoming the next victims and suffering the same fate, Lisa will have to summon the past victims of the house to stop the Haunter once and for all.
