Phantom returns the the town, Mirage, that she left years ago. She now has to face the death of her sister, meet and help take care of her nephew, Reuben, as well as her grandfather, who has become old and frail.

Her childhood seems to have been troubled, with her mother having attempted suicide, but surviving it in an unresponsive state, traumatizing both Phantom and her twin sister, June, who remained in the town.

She has to face the man she left, who has now married someone else.

Although it seems their mother is haunting them, her body is still surviving in the local nursing home, where Phantom's sister, June, having been ill and in a come, awoke to also suicide, successfully.

Phantom's greatest concern now, is that she has to move her own daughter, Eve, who is in a vegetative state, into the same nursing home.

All the stress drives her to go drinking at the local pub where she runs into her ex's new wife, Amy. She is found by the cops and her ex-boyfriend, who return her to the nursing home, where a fire broke out in her mother's room.
