Three journalism students decide to do one of their class projects on the case of Mongia, who was found mutilated, accused of witchcraft and imprisoned in an asylum twenty-five years ago. The investigation will take them to Dachra, a complex that serves as the home of a cult. It certainly isn’t the ideal place to spend the night, but it doesn’t seem like a good idea to turn down their cheery and threatening leader’s invitation.
