Synopsis

Meet Jean ...a fiery, headstrong, redheaded ghost chaser that co-leads PASS, the Paranormal and Supernatural Society, in Shadow Valley, a winter resort town in the Northwest USA. Life there is like any other that caters to the seasonal whims of skiers during the winter and tourists off-season. Despite spending their time creeping through the dark nooks and deep shadows of the 100+ year-old community, their insatiable craving for the supernatural and paranormal has rarely been satisfied. Things are about to change... Shadow Valley holds more than its share of secrets. Odd storms and Jean's intense dreams cast an air of foreboding over the biggest of PASS's investigations: that of the decaying halls of local legendarily haunted asylum, Knoll Mansion. A malevolent Entity lurks in its shadows, feeding on the life essence of the lost, the unwary and the reckless. It waits to play on the PASS team's deepest fears. Will the revelation of Jean's Guardian Angel, Valera, and the young woman's mysterious past be enough to protect her loved ones from the coming chaos?
