A teenage Danny strikes a deal with the possessive dark spirts that consume Missy to take him instead, but at the heavy price of never seeing her again.  Daniel, later in life, can’t let go of the pact he made, while Melissa has forgotten the heated imaginings of childhood.  Melissa’s estranged and jealous husband Garth, on a desperate spiritual quest, sparks a crisis.  The characters, past and present, connect, then switch.  Are they permanently lost, or can they switch back?  A confrontation with Garth can set things straight and reconstruct their past, but to what end, and at what cost?
