Renowned author Sir Arthur Conan Doyle has spent years in pursuit of contact with the other side. Famed magician Harry Houdini has been on a parallel journey--to debunk the very notion. With the help of the brash and unpredictable medium Mina Crandon, the two come to the table for one final seance.
