Only eighteen, Rose had a three month-old baby, born out of wedlock. Her mother Sybil, determined to protect the family reputation, had carefully concealed the baby from the entire town. This was 1910, after all. That fateful day, Sybil brought an old doll down from the attic as a present for baby Angela. Mysteriously, the next day Angela did not wake up.

Just a few days later, there was more dreadful news. Several strange events in such a short period of time!

Sybil gave birth to Ted a few years later. Both Sybil and her unmarried daughter Gertrude doted on Ted as he grew up. However, Sybil was furious when Ted decided to marry Jenny, the maid. They were forced to elope. The couple soon had a daughter, Annie. In 1950, when Annie was eight, Sybil's deathbed wish was that Ted and Jenny would bring Annie so that she could at last lay eyes on her grand-daughter. Upon seeing Annie, Sybil said "Now she is yours", then collapsed. The family had no idea what she meant ...

After Sybil passed away, Ted, Jenny and Annie moved into the old house to live with Gertrude. Unfortunately, death continued to stalk the family.

Years later the neighborhood was being developed and a new family moved in next door to the old mansion. Unsurprisingly, two young girls decided to check out the abandoned house, where they found an old doll. Was it possible that the house had sat unoccupied for forty years? Sadly, the troubles in the old house were not yet at an end ...
