Ania’s life changes when she is stabbed late
one night on the beach. After the incident she starts to be able to see
spirits, one in particular is Gabriel. The rub of the situation, Gabriel and

alone at night with no protection, no surprise she gets stabbed, with that she
still pushes her mom away.
