In the cold spring of 1936, Arthor Crandle, down-on-his luck and desperate for work, accepts a position in Providence, Rhode Island, as a live-in secretary/assistant for an unnamed shut-in.

There is an ominous presence Crandle feels on the main stairwell. Light shines out underneath the door of the writers room, but is invisible from the street. It becomes increasingly clear there is something not right about the house or its occupant.
