She was warned...She was given an explanation...but still, she persisted



Emily is a 23 year old woman who lives with her older brother Quinn, a charming former athlete. Her parents died in a train accident when she was only two years old. She met a guy several years
later, Jimmy Sullivan, who she slowly begins having a crush on until one day out of the blue he leaves town without telling anyone why. After a year of being gone, he finally shows up to attend
Matt Sander's party, which Quinn is attending. He won't let her leave so she sneaks out and reunites with Jimmy, and they become intimate. However, Jimmy and his friends Brian, Zacky, Johnny and
Matt have a distressing secret that relates to Jimmy's disappearance that will either scare Emily or keep her close. As she learns more about this secret, ominous events occur that could bring
anyone's night terrors to life.



Once she becomes familiar with all of these horrific events, things can only get worse: violently and surprisingly. But she realizes she can get through anything, especially with Jimmy by her side.
