In the desolate, grimy 1980s, the owner of a rich mansion – Horace Yew – was brutally murdered. A cryptic message was left behind, signed with the name of the man’s long-deceased mistress, “Sophie” – describing the murder in frightfully gory detail. Public uproar – upon further investigation, Yew’s current lover, Madam Yao Meixi, was arrested. Throughout all her interrogations, the only line she screamed hysterically, over and over, was- “I did it – but it wasn’t me – It was Sophie – her ghost – in my body-!”
Nevertheless, anything supernatural such as “ghostly possession by a malevolent spirit” was not to be accepted as testimony. Madam Yao was hung five years later, and the case closed for good.
Yet, a boy sat in the middle of his study-room, watching his time aimlessly fading away. A girl played baroque on the piano, her back rigid and poised. Two young men, haunted repeatedly by visions, sights and voices – and a young woman, lying on a hospital bed, staring at the ceiling – perhaps neither really dead or really alive.
It was not the end.
One case, imprinted on history. One murderer, brought to the gallows.
Five children lay in the ashes, their lives destroyed.
Haunted by strange nightmares of a woman named “Sophie” for years, a mysterious young girl with no name or identity entered the town where Horace Yew was murdered eight years ago – armed with an oddly detailed notebook belonging to the late detective who had worked on that borderline-supernatural case. In this new town, she met the five teenagers who were all involved in that case in some way or another. All of them were children back then, the day when they lost everything. Each of them had a deep scar engraved on their hearts that could never mend.
Then, a series of brutal killings and other crimes began once again – crimes which the girl was certain were linked to the case which began it all. And she is now determined to get close to each of these five very different youngsters, who could know more than they are letting on – and through this, finally get to the heart of the case from eight years ago…
