Corine is living a life she’s never intended to live. She is mourning the loss of her ex-boyfriend Chance, and she is not sure how she is going to get home either. She gets a phone call from Ian Booke who insists that he needs her help and has to travel to England.
Surprisingly, Corine is already in England, and even more surprisingly she drives to Ian Cottage without her knowledge and finds nothing but a shack. She walks in only to find that his friend is a very old man cursed to live in his house for many years.
