When Jane Barnes moves to her father’s affluent New England hometown for her senior year of High School, she soon discovers that the quaint village has a strange effect on her, especially when she steps into its ancient cemetery, where one of the stones marks the grave of another Jane Barnes – accused of witchcraft almost 400 years before.
