Emmett Walters is a 28 year old journalist looking for the perfect story to finish off his series with a bang. Looking for something unusual, he decided to stick close to home and take a look into the Oakham Hospital, which has been abandoned for nearly twenty years after a mysterious fire ravaged the halls and killed a majority of the patients. But when no paper trail surfaces and nobody wants to talk about what happens, how is Emmett supposed to write his story? In a last attempt to save this story and his career, he turns to the town's priest for some answers. When an interview with Father Martin goes horribly awry, Emmett realized a little too late just why nobody wants to tell him about the mysteries that lay within the walls fof the Oakham Hospital.
