Julia was a musical prodigy – Little Miss Mozart they called her – with the world at her feet. Until her body was found lying in a pool of blood.

Twelve years have passed and Joe, her father has never stopped asking why. Did she really take her own life? Or was someone else with her on that fateful night? Strange sounds and signs have begun to haunt the shrine Joe has built to his lost daughter. Tonight he wants an answer....... and he will get it.
