They soon learn that this ritual has the power to bring back the dead, and would allow them three days with their beloved daughter. When terms are agreed with the sinister village leader (Timothy Spall), far bigger questions begin to loom... what will they do when it's time for Alice to go back? Will she go back peacefully? Or are there more sinister forces at work?
