Description: In the 1840s, a ship full of Irish emigrants founders off the coast of Maine in a terrible winter blizzard. Fishermen from a nearby island are able to save nearly everyone -- except one young girl who repeatedly calls out for her brother as she's carried to shore. Soon after reaching safety, she passes away.

In the present day, a middle-aged artist lives alone in a cottage on the same island, haunted by the memory of his twin sister who died when he was a boy. Though the community is so close that the inhabitants still speak with a slight Irish brogue -- the legacy of the 150 settlers who never looked farther for a place to call home -- he has been unable to form a meaningful connection with another human being since childhood.

Then, one quiet All Hallow's Eve, the ghost of the shipwrecked girl will enter his house, beckoned by a candle left burning in the window. And nothing will ever be the same again....
