"At Brangwyn, an elite girls boarding school, Rebecca, a young girl haunted by her father's suicide, begins her junior year hoping for a fresh start. From the outset, her friendship with sunny, innocent Lucy is shattered by the arrival of Ernessa, a mysterious, dark and beautiful girl from Europe. As her friendship with Lucy slips away, Rebecca develops a crush on her handsome English professor, Mr. Davies, who is teaching a course on supernatural fiction," a synopsis of the film said.
