Dan is sixteen and has come to New Hampshire College Prep to get a jump on college courses over the summer. Since the regular dorms are under renovation, students are assigned rooms in an old crumbling structure, a former psychiatric hospital called Brookline. Dan and his new friends Abby and Jordan decide to explore the building and discover disturbing photographs of patients and old case files in a dusty office. Curiosity leads the trio in detecting a hidden door leading to an old operating theater in the basement. Murders start happening, strange notes appear in Dan’s room, messages are sent from his phone that he didn’t send, and he is plagued by bad dreams. Just when things couldn't be creepier, it turns out that the former warden of Brookline’s name was Daniel Crawford, which is Dan’s name, and one of Abby’s aunts was a patient, and Jordan also has connections to Brookline.
