A Crime, a Memory, a Friend, a Life: All Forgotten. A broken young woman finds herself lodged in the wilds of a Northern Michigan asylum. Separated from the life she had known in Chicago, she grieves alone after a beloved friend has been murdered. Through electric shock treatments, hydrotherapy, and strange visitors, she tries to piece back together the life she once had--the life she almost remembers. Before she can answer the questions about her own past, however, she will have to delve into the tragedy that brought her there in the first place. Only then can she divine why the ghostly presence of her friend continues to haunt her.
