They have arranged to meet a delegation from the Bologna cultural assets department to discuss and plan the villa’s restoration. In the mid 19th century, the small daughter of the family, Clara was murdered and immured inside the villa by her father on account of her powers of clairvoyance. He believed these powers were the work of the devil. A shroud of fear envelops Villa Clara as people still believe it echoes with violence and brutality and that Clara’s ghost continues to wander among its walls.

One of the team disappears in strange circumstances forcing Helen, Jacob and the rest of the group to stay at the villa beyond dusk to retrieve their friend.
