Cecilia is a sociology teacher at the University. One stormy night, Kevin, a poor young 15-year old, the son of her maid, desperately knocks on the door of her house. Terrified, she doesn’t open. The next day, Kevin’s body shows up floating in the river, murdered by the police. Cecilia begins to be haunted by the young man’s ghost.
