The story is centered around the final two employees working in a haunted hotel before it goes out of business. After over one hundred years in business, The Yankee Pedlar Hotel is about to close its doors for good.

As several strange occurrences begin to add up, both Claire and Luke must make the crucial decision on what to believe and what not to believe...
