Sinds haar oudste zus drie jaar geleden het huis verliet, spreekt Hero vrijwel niet meer. Ze leeft in haar eigen wereld en vlucht geregeld weg in het bos dat het oude huis van mevrouw Credence omringt. Onverklaarbare geluiden doen haar vermoeden dat er nog iemand in het huis woont. Ze vindt er tot haar ontzetting een gehandicapt meisje, vastgeketend aan bed.
