A childhood warning about the evil just outside human range of vision is all but forgotten until Trevor Black becomes an adult and receives the unwanted gift of perceiving that evil. Trevor’s life as a wealthy New York attorney with a beautiful wife begins to crumble as his supernatural visions of the demonic underworld are misinterpreted as signs of a nervous breakdown. When a high school friend is murdered, he returns home to investigate and confront his childhood experience.
