of high school students on retreat in a remote house find themselves haunted
by a restless, vicious spirit.
(current Filipino 'it' girl Janella Salvador) can see ghosts. But this
ability causes nothing but trouble for her [including the death of her
beloved father] so she has wisely learned how to block it. However, her
personality causes other students to "think she's weird" and
Ella is constantly bullied, especially by the school bitches. The entire
class embarks on a Catholic weekend retreat with Father Anthony at a rural
mansion. As it turns out, the place is haunted by [what seems to be] the
ghost of a girl who had been raped and murdered by a caretaker. But, in
reality, it's the sinister ghost of her mother doing harm. Ella must learn
to embrace her special "gift" to save herself and her classmates.
But things don't go as expected.
