Janet Losey (Shirley Henderson), stop smoking, he sees in her mind an image of a young girl floating below the surface of a stream. He is soon caught up in the detective's pursuit of a ritualistic killer who believes he has found the secret of immortality. Although the girl has managed to escape from the killer, she has been struck mute by her trauma and the only clues are weird visions trapped in her mind. Only Michael can help release her memories, and provide a clue as to the whereabouts of the killer.
Shot during the summer of 2001 on location around London the movie was inspired by the book by Madison Smartt Bell. The film is a chilling psychological thriller written by William Brookfield and Nick Willing.
