The menthol hits and the stoic FLORENCE KELLY drifts into a light-headed reverie—a sweet release amid her father’s bloodied disappearance while being back under the same roof as her estranged mother.
As the missing person's investigation plays out fruitlessly, Florence befriends a local man, William, who becomes another sweet release until he sours with the reveal of an eldritch secret that turns her world… well, otherworldly—and while his crux offers clarity on her supposed hallucinations, it muddles her reality of who and what she is.
Now, ensnared in the world of magic, Florence must associate with the strange for a spell inked in blood to discover the truth. That is if the prospect of revenge doesn’t overshadow her need for closure while an unassuming marionettist tugs at her strings.
