Synopsis: Professor David Ash is invited to Edbrook to calm the fears of the elderly nanny of the Mariell family. Nanny Tess is seeing things, and Ash's book debunking such phenomenon makes him a good choice to set her mind at ease and convince her she is just tired and stressed. But soon after arriving David too begins to doubt his senses, and watching the odd behavior of the three grown Mariell children doesn't make his task any easier. In fact, he begins to think Nanny Tess isn't really just tired and stressed out after all.

As a professor of psychology

University of Camberley.

Psychic phenomena.


Lord, his books deny its existence.

As I said before.

The aim of these classes is not

discuss the content of my books.

Which by the way,

have had great success.

I advise you make a copy.

The only thing that my

book is called evidence.

I'm not here to change

any of your precious beliefs.

But I'm here to tell you.

When investigating psychic phenomena.

Should adopt a

objective and scientific position.

Now if you want my opinion.

There are no ghosts.

Or spirits.

Neither angels.

It is only the desire to exist.

To relieve pain and our fears.

Bless you for coming.

I can feel the excitement of

our loved ones on the other side.

Join me.


There's someone here.

You want to talk to Clare.

I'm Clare.


Hello, Clare.

You stop worrying about me.

I am very happy here.

Come talk to me again.

I have many things to tell you.

What would you do for my Clare?


Is anyone here named Brook?


Edward Brook?

Ed Brook?

Many people want to talk.


Ask if your child is here.

My mother was Charlotte.

Hello, dear.

Know that I am very proud of you.

I see you do well.

Mother you okay?

Aunt Lily is with you?

Yeah, she's here.

Your hip still hurts you?

No more pain.

Except for being away from you.

Ladies and gentlemen.

My mother's name was Charlotte.

She was from the United States.

Never broke her hip.

And I never had an aunt named Lily.

This woman is a despicable fraud.

Get him out.

Get him out of here.


Ladies and gentlemen.

This is my mother.

It's a fraud.

Madame, you are despicable.

This is terrible.,

as you can do that?

She should be ashamed.

Has no conscience.

This is different...

You can stop with his performance.

Please do not do it...

You are pathetic.




Where were you?

- Come on.

A race to the house.


Thanks, Kate.

All this for me?

His book touched heartstrings.

Everyone wants to go

investigate something.

My article on Madame Brontski.

I hope that out of business.

She wrote again.


- Ms. Webb.

Mrs. Webb?

Let me see.

A lady and great.

It is not believed to be imprisoned...

...Of evil spirits, or something?


He says he promised to go see it.


Certainly not.

I have no time for that now.

She seems desperate.

It is the region?

In Sussex, I think.

Edbrook Mansion.


Edbrook Mansion.

I think I could take a look.

David Ash?

Mrs. Webb?

Christina Mariell.

I came at the request of the Nanny Tess.

A pleasure. Nana Tess?

- Ms. Webb.

Nana always called Tess.

Excuse my delay.

- Do not worry.

No problem...

You are not as expected.

We Come?

So you're in the colonies?

In Chicago?

It's pretty smart.

Not so.

I have read his biography in his book.

At least he's honest.

Not that it is not smart

means that you read.

It is the first American I know.

Actually, my father was an English

and lived here until eleven.

So it remains unknown.

The nanny did not come because

afraid to leave the house.

It is difficult to see someone

love and lose clarity.

I fear you you're wasting your time.

I hope I can help.

And I promise to keep you entertained.

You handle this?


Put your bags behind.

Where did you learn to drive?

I did not learn, it's my first time.
