Joe, a director of horror films, is watching his real life become one. He survives a terrible train wreck only to be haunted by the ghost of one of the passengers who didn't survive. Joe begins to investigate the man who's haunting him, desperate to understand what the specter could possibly want. Meanwhile, Joe's attorney and friend, Abby, travels to a small town in rural Oregon to make peace with the man who--sixteen years earlier as an abused and disturbed teenager--brutally murdered her parents and younger sister. The man--the murderer--is her older brother and we see their first interaction in years and, via flashback, the circumstances that actually led to this grisly event.
