Left alone in the attic, with nothing but her dollhouse, Emily feels lonely and forgotten.
With nothing more than the sound of music and the laughter of the parties thrown by her parents, her hatred grew, fueled by frustration and bitterness.
Dark forces surround Emily, making her a vessel for the evil that has seeped into every corner of the mansion.
