Trying to come to terms with the passing of her husband, a famous and controversial artist in Calgary, Aimee Westerberg is spiralling into depression instead. Her identity as Georges Westerberg's younger second wife leads to a fight with his family over his estate. Aimee attempts to hide from it all in her work as an art-restorer at the Glenbow museum, only to find herself pursued by journalist, Bear Cardinal, who is writing an exposé on her late husband. As Aimee tries to piece together the true character of her late husband, her fragmented memories come into contrast with a phantom version of him which materializes, and seems intent on preventing her from getting on with her life. Unable to mourn while tormented by a poltergeist, Aimee needs to figure out how to un-tether herself from the past, and escape forces from beyond.
