Reading performed by actress Maya Woloszyn

 

It’s the story of a teenager by the name of Connor Webb who’s doing homework late one night when he hears repeated scratching and whispering sounds that seem to originate from the empty attic of his family’s Victorian home.

Unable to concentrate on his work he cautiously makes his way up the dim narrow stairway but cannot discover its source. Thus begins a serioue search for answers that leads him into the stunning world of the supernatural and discoveries that most have outright rejected.

SYNOPSIS:

Raised by a poverty-stricken family in Granville, Ohio, Joseph Hall has been poor his entire life. Frustrated at how little his life has offered him, he turns to dreams to get him through his days of want. Now a young man in 1940, he’s ready to settle down with a girl, but even that is settling in his eyes. He wants more-but has no idea how he’ll ever be able to rise above his humble beginnings. One fateful day, however, an act of chivalry for Margret, a beautiful heiress, sparks in him a dark ambition to seize what he feels he is owed-and his life begins to change.
