Story of a metaphysics student who discovers the practice of astral projection and the scientific possibility of a dimension outside our own. Coming to terms with the death of his mother, Alex (Frank Dillane) turns to astral projection in an attempt to reconnect with her. Coming to terms with the explanation of his mother's untimely death, Alex turns to spiritual contact after the relationship with his father breaks down. As a student of metaphysics, Alex learns of the "scientific" premise of astral projection-the ability to project your spirit into an unseen spatial dimension. Attempting to astral project, Alex becomes plagued by shadow spirits-malevolent entities vying to enter his body to access our world. Alex soon learns that he is not the only member of his family to have been besieged by such beings, as his mother's dark past is brought to his attention. Evil never dies.
