Megan has been distraught ever since her twin sister Sofie committed suicide just a few months before. When it comes time for their annual trip to the lake house in the bayous of Louisiana with her friends during the summer solstice, Megan reluctantly decides to go. Once the five friends arrive, Megan soon begins to suspect that her dead sister is trying to communicate with her as the solstice draws near; the one time when our world and the next are closest. However, she soon realizes that the presence she feels is not her sister, but something much more sinister. On the day of the solstice, horrific secrets from the past are resurrected... as well as the dead.
