Jim Evers and his wife Sara Evers are realtors who are asked to come give an estimate on a old house on their way to their vacation lake house. But the truth behind the house is that the man wanting to sell it, Master Gracey, and his household of servants and faithful butler Ramsley have all been dead for a hundred years but unable to leave. But... is Ramsley so faithful? He has tricked Master Gracey into believing Sara Evers is his long lost love, and that she will remember who she really is in time.
But the other side of the truth once more is that she isn't really his long lost love, and Jim and his children Michael and Megan have a very short amount of time to make Master Gracey believe Ramsley decieved him, or she's history.
