In post-Second World War Warwickshire, England, the ravages of war seen on the battlefield are mimicked in the deteriorating, centuries-old estate Hundreds Hall. When Dr. Faraday is called to the residence, which is home to the Ayres family, he quickly comes to know its inhabitants: Roddie, scarred after returning from battle: His sister Caroline, set on maintaining Hundreds without its pre-war servants; and their mother, seemingly stuck in the ways of the past. But as he grows closer to the family, Dr. Faraday learns they’re not alone in the house, and is gradually consumed by a psychologically thrilling ghost story.
