(A Horror Feature Film)
When the ghosts of previous tenants trap Dolly in her apartment, she must solve the mystery of their deaths to escape the risk of following in their fatal footsteps.
Dolly receives a mysterious phone call claiming her as a participant – trapped in her own haunted apartment, she has to find the way out. Each wrong choice leads her closer to the ghosts that haunt her home. Dolly must find a way to bring them peace or join them in terrorizing the next tenant.
