Having found it difficult to find a common language with the client, Dani gets the job. Beautiful views near the manor, backgrounds of nature and wilderness – at first the girl is delighted, she enjoys the beauty. The children seem cute to her. Little Flora believes that everything in manor is flawless and does not get tired of telling others about it.

The older boy, her brother Miles, seems a little odd. And the information that he was recently sent back home from boarding school seems strange for a new governess. She taught for 9 years and knows very well that a child can only be expelled for a very good reason. But the boy is stubbornly silent about his past deeds.

Very soon, the guys show their true faces, and Dani begins to realize that something is wrong here. Flora devotes too much time to her dollhouse, which is full of monsters. If Dani touches at least one of her dolls, Flora reacts too violently to it. Not so long ago, in front of Flora’s eyes, the previous governess died, so Dani forgives everything to the girl.

Miles begins to test the girl’s patience. He brings her huge spiders in the hope of scaring her, closes her in a cupboard for several hours… Dani feels that she is gradually starting to go crazy, she sees ghosts in mirrors, in nearby buildings… But going back to her own past is much more terrifying for her than meeting face to face with the ghosts from the Bly Manor…
