After an ecstasy induced car accident, 12 year old Lizzie lies dead on the roadside slowly she is taken into the light - but is pulled back to earth when she is revived by doctors. Lizzie feels sure that during the 184 seconds that she lay dead, something latched onto her and came back into her world. The nightmares and visions that follow only crystallize her belief that she should have died in the crash... Only when Kate her mother, is confronted with inexplicable events does she face the possibility that they may be victims of a poltergeist infestation. The family have no option but to ask for help, but everywhere Kate turns she is met with ridicule or a brick wall of civil servant red tape. Finally, Kate's plea is answered by a newspaper journalist from the local press with his own hidden agenda - he brings in all manner of 'experts' parapsychologists, spiritualists, Christians - all of whom offer their services whilst championing their own individual theories for the unexplained phenomena. As the Fisher household is invaded by battling investigators, Lizzie continues to experience terrible nightmares, recurring apparitions of the crash and visions of a hell in which she is damned to spend eternity. Ultimately, Lizzie has to accept that she should have died in the crash, or face up to the demons of her past.
