Stuart Wisher, a successful paediatric surgeon, is haunted by ghosts from his past. The happily married father of three appears to have the world at his feet. But he's tormented by a nightmare in which a nine-year old boy runs through dense woodland, pursued by a faceless individual. The nightmare always ends with the boy falling over and meeting his death. Desperate for answers, Stuart seeks psychiatric help. But nothing prepares him for what he discovers.
